Hey, Rick Santorum: You’re next for LGBT activists

Sen. Rick Santorum

With the pesky Michele Bachmann out of the way, the LGBT focus in the GOP primary process has turned to former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn). The current “top tier” GOP presidential candidate was on-hand at a New England College-sponsored conference yesterday and was confronted by students over same-sex marriage during a Q&A session.

Santorum's positions on same-sex marriage, gays and lesbians in the military and pornography are no secret. Check out Ryan Lee's cover story previewing the primary elections for background on Santorum and the other remaining GOP contenders.

While answering a question on his views about same-sex marriage, Santorum compares such unions to polygamy and berates an audience member on the definition of “harming another person.”
