Rick Santorum responds to Prop 8 decision

Yes – Rick Santorum is finally getting it.

Yes – “irrational hatred and bigotry toward a group of people” is the only reason you would DENY equal rights to fellow Americans.

Yes, Rick, you finally see the light.

A civil marriage license is issued by a civil government – NOT a church – and that, by it’s own definition, makes this a civil rights issue.

Rick is so offended by the word ‘bigot’ – and yet it’s just a word. An accurate word to describe his position against the civil rights of gays and lesbians.

Let’s look up the definition of the word “bigot” – shall we?

From the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

“Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group with hatred and intolerance”

It’s a word. A word that neither good or bad; it’s simply a word that describes someone who is ‘devoted to his or her own opinions.’ Sounds like folks like Rick Santorum, doesn’t it?

Why be mad Rick? It just is what it is…
