Rick Santorum ‘Reinstatement’ Response to Gay Soldier Question is What’s Tragic

I was dumbfounded and disgusted by this response by Santorum in
the GOP Presidential debate of September 22, 2010. This is an insult to gay servicemembers everywhere and the people who serve with them.

Santorum is right about one thing. Sex is not an issue and it shouldn’t
be an issue. It shouldn’t, which why we repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Sex was an issue under that policy. We were saying gay soldiers aren’t as good as straight soldiers. Which as more and more soldiers come out and others realize they have been serving, proudly with
their gay and lesbian soldiers, statements like Santorum’s will be proven wrong. Look for this comment to haunt Santorum and the GOP long after this debate is over.

Unlike, Santorum, I thank Stephen Hill for his service.
