Santorum: Gay Marriage Stops Straight People From Having Kids

Santorum: Gay Marriage Stops Straight People From Having Kids April 16, 2013

Rick Santorum went on the Bill O’Reilly show and made a monumentally idiotic argument. He claimed that allowing gay people to get married will result, and is already resulting, in straight married couples having fewer kids. Why? I have no idea. Neither does he.

“Would we be discouraging heterosexual marriage by allowing gay marriage?” Bill O’Reilly asked Santorum.

“Yeah, I believe we would,” Santorum replied.

Santorum then suggested that legalizing gay marriage results in Americans having fewer children.

“Because we’d be saying that marriage isn’t about children,” Santorum said. “And when we say that, then, of course, the consequences are you’re probably going to have less children. It’s happening as we see it. It’s already happening in America.”

Holy missing causal connection, Batman. Does he really think a single straight person in the world is ever going to say, or has ever said, “Look honey, I’d love to have another baby, but now they’re letting gay people get married so let’s use birth control instead”? Seriously?
