In Defense Of Rick Santorum

In Defense Of Rick Santorum: The vast majority of the criticism that Rick Santorum is currently receiving is unfair and in some cases is designed to deliberately distort what he actually said. Since his critics are continuing to pile on, I thought he deserved a stronger defense than the one I gave him earlier this week.

To begin with, Santorum was airing a very valid concern in the interview that got him into trouble. If the sodomy law in question is overturned by the Supreme Court based on the “right to privacy”, then it’s very possible that a number of other sex acts might be defended using the exact same argument. I’d say bestiality and incest between adults would probably fall into that category. That would not be a problem if the law were rescinded locally, but if the Supreme Court shoots it down because of the “right to privacy” then it does have wider implications. (Cont)
