Rick Santorum Defends Anti-Gay Marriage Stance, Says Marriage Is the Glue That Holds the Family Together

In an interview on Studio B Monday, Shepard Smith challenged Rick Santorum on his position on gay marriage. Santorum said that whether homosexuals should be allowed to marry is really a question of values, saying, “The question is whether we should change the laws of this country to reflect a different value structure. What we’re talking about here are different values. We have to Judeo-Christian values that are based on Biblical truth and truth that can be acclaimed and resolved through reason. And, those truths don’t change just because people’s attitudes may change.”

He went onto say, “People are allowed to love a lot of different people and a lot of different, and we honor those relationships, but we don’t call them marriage and we don’t treat them like marriage.”

Santorum concluded, “Family is the foundation of our society and marriage is the glue that holds that family together. That’s not being against anybody, that’s being for something.”
