Men ejected from Santorum rally after kissing

A kiss got two men ejected from Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s visit to a Christian high school in Arlington Heights on Friday.

Video footage from the campaign rally shows Santorum, a vocal opponent of gay marriage, interrupted by shouting from the audience as he addresses the crowd at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights.

The video then shows the two men kissing before a security guard approaches.

The crowd chants, “USA. USA. USA,” as the two men are escorted from the packed gymnasium.

Media outlets have identified the two men as Timothy Tross, of Lombard and Benjamin Clifford, of Algonquin. Messages left for Tross and Clifford were not immediately returned Saturday.

After the brief interruption, Santorum continued his speech, saying, “We will stand by the values that made this country the greatest country in the world.”

Good way to get people on your side. Show up at a Christian school and pull this act? Even social liberals (not the moonbats) would probably find this disgusting.

The gay mafia is despicable.

I grew up with a guy who is gay and he thinks this kind of thing does more harm than good.

And in the news from our parallel universe ...

“Two men reading the Constitution were ejected from an Obama rally yesterday”

I doubt they were ejected for the kiss. They disrupted the rally, which will get you ejected. Security was already on its way. The USA chant (standard response to disruptors) was already underway. The kiss was street theatre, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the headline were prewritten.

Dave Gregory will probably be all over it on Meet the Press tomorrow. Any response to the incident by Santorum will confirm the meme that he is a bigot.

I’ve said it before, the fags are abnormal. Even here in mexifornia, they did not win their own fag marriage proposition and had to resort to making it law and shove this abomination in sane people’s faces.

I have a family member that is homosexual, and he hates what he calls “flaming activists”, he said they do more harm than good.

Old saying - give them and inch, they’ll take a mile. It’s generic in nature as to who ‘them’ is, but seems to fit the case in point.

Oh jeez, I see this reporter wasn’t even there....
these 2 idiots started chanting some nonsense and yes, the crowd responded with our USA chant and as the police were coming to drag their scummy butts outta there, they staged their foolish ‘kiss’ - and Rick did not miss a beat.

Good way to get people on your side. /S

Yeah, no kidding. "Let's take away people's associated of choice, commit an obscene act in public as a sign that's we're now mainstream and not total mental cases! Follow us! AHHHHHH!"

Pretty sad statement and not one that speaks to a stable mind.

"associated of choice" = "Freedom to associate with whom we choose".

Saint Patricks Day is still clinging on to me...lol!

the hatred that gays have for Rick Santorum is sort of like the hate they feel for Anita Bryant, Dr. Laura, Jerry Falwell and the cops who raided Stonewall, all rolled into one.

Just point and laugh. Let the fags know you are laughing at them. Not with them!

They wanted to be thrown out to get press attention.
