From the "DAMN, Republicans Lawmakers are INSANE File":

So... apparently Rick Santorum believes that Gay Marriage is somehow helping Al-Qaeda:

"I would argue that the future of our country hangs in the balance because the future of marriage hangs in the balance," he said shortly before the vote. "Isn't that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?"

linky here.

Because, you just KNOW those Fundamentalist Islamists are ALL ABOUT the hot man-on-man action.

Okay, just to make sure I'm following things without my scorecard here...
Orrin Hatch believes iPods promote piracy. And P2P software is destroying our econmy.
Rick Santorum thinks that Gay People getting married will bring about the end of civilization as we know it. And homosexuality leads to pedophilia and beastiality.
And of course the PATRIOT Act is helping protect us, by giving a man who retroactively classifies documents pointing out the failures of american intelligence in regards to 9/11 more free range to intrude on the private lives of American citizens. Um... shouldn't he be investigating what apparently shows that pre- Patriot act there was more than enough information available to fight terrorism? How is hiding this information from investigation going to help?

Isn't the Republican Ideology supposed to be about less government and more defense? How does amending the constitution to say who can and cannot get married provide for the common defense? Or promote economic prosperity? Or reduce the size of government intrusion into private life??

yeah, it's been tabled for now. My point is why waste time on something like this in the first place?
