Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum wants to be your next president. He believes in traditional American values. And he believes “traditional American values” boils down to marriage is meant only for pairings that will produce children. Because bible. (Sorry, gays!)

With all the people you knew were running for president dominating late night television, Santorum took what he could get, appearing on The View, where we assume he thought Candace Cameron Bure would protect him from those wily New York liberals. Apparently he didn’t count on Raven-Symone coming at him with her logic.

Raven-Symoné questions presidential candidate Rick Santorum on gay marriage: "I don't understand why you feel [the LGBT] community can't give and provide for [a] child just as well as a straight couple can?"

Santorum says:

“The greater purpose of marriage that society has always valued is to bring men and women together so when they have children, there’s a permanent bond by which those children can be raised by their natural mother and natural father. And when you have a law that says, as the Court said, that marriage has nothing to do with children anymore, then what you’re gonna have is you’re not gonna have a society encouraging the behavior that is in the best interest of children and the future of society.”

Raven-Symone responded, “I don’t understand why you feel like [the gay] community can’t give and provide for that child just as well as a straight couple can.”

Aside from Raven-Symone’s point that children can be raised healthy and happy within a LGBTQA family, there’s also the simple truth that children are not required of married straight couples. I don’t have any, and that doesn’t make my marriage any less legally binding than that of married straight people who do. Though apparently it’s less impressive to Santorum, but he can go fuck a rake for all I care.

So let’s be up front: Santorum thinks gay people are less than. They don’t deserve marriage because they don’t deserve children. He can talk procreation nonsense all he pleases. But that’s what it boils down to. And thankfully, this is no longer a popular political position.

Just after this clip ends, Michelle Collins took a nice dig, asking bluntly: “You’re at 1% [in the polls]. At what point do you decide to drop out of this and support someone in your own party?”

Subtext: No one likes you. Do shut up now.
