Santorum: Gays already have enough rights
Advertisements [?]
Source: Fox News via Raw Story

Likely Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum told Fox News' Chris Wallace Sunday that LGBT people don't deserve equal rights.

"You opposed gay marriage," Wallace noted.

"I did," Santorum agreed.

"You oppose civil unions, you want to reinstate 'don't ask, don't tell.' Do you think gays have any rights, should have any access to benefits as partners?" Wallace asked.

"Well, sure. I mean there are all sorts of contractual benefits that anybody can contract for. But the question is whether we should institutionalize that in public policy? My feeling is that people can live their lives however they want to live it," Santorum explained.
