VIDEO: Rick Santorum Goes On The View And Gives A Solid Defense Of Traditional Marriage

Rick Santorum’s 2016 presidential campaign isn’t taking off, and with the crowded field of candidates on the GOP side in this cycle he’s a lot less likely to gain traction than he did in 2012, when he survived as the last conservative standing to challenge Mitt Romney for the nomination.

But Santorum’s 2016 campaign isn’t without its moments, one of which was on the otherwise-ridiculous ABC morning show The View. Questioned by one of the show’s panelists, former Cosby kid, Disney Channel star and lesbian activist Raven-Symoné, Santorum gave a non-Biblical, reasoned and intelligent response to a loaded question about why the gay community isn’t able to have marriage equality.

It’s about kids and raising them, he said.

The media on the Left are assaulting Santorum for his statement, but we now have statistical data to back up Santorum’s contention that same-sex partner households are less fertile ground than traditional ones. As Western Journalism notes

Children of homosexual parents, compared to children raised by their biological parents:

  • Are much more likely to have received welfare

  • Have lower educational attainment

  • Report less safety and security in their family of origin

  • Report more ongoing “negative impact” from their family of origin

  • Are more likely to suffer from depression

  • Have been arrested more often

  • If they are female, have had more sexual partners–both male and female

That’s from a study recently published in the journal Social Science Research.

Santorum was perhaps too polite to his questioner to directly refute her assertion that fighting moms and dads make for worse households than loving lesbians, because statistically she’s wrong…

Children of lesbian mothers:

  • Are more likely to be currently cohabiting

  • Are almost 4 times more likely to be currently on public assistance

  • Are less likely to be currently employed full-time

  • Are more than 3 times more likely to be unemployed

  • Are nearly 4 times more likely to identify as something other than entirely heterosexual

  • Are 3 times as likely to have had an affair while married or cohabiting

  • Are an astonishing 10 times more likely to have been “touched sexually by a parent or other adult caregiver”

  • Are nearly 4 times as likely to have been “physically forced” to have sex against their will

  • Are more likely to have “attachment” problems related to the ability to depend on others

  • Use marijuana more frequently

  • Smoke more frequently

  • Watch TV for long periods more frequently

  • Have more often pled guilty to a non-minor offense

In today’s culture you’re not allowed to say these things. Santorum is still willing to say them. He won’t be elected president as a result, but he deserves credit for fighting the good fight.
