In an interview with Fox News Megyn Kelly, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum commented on the reaction to a question from a gay soldier at last nights debate. I condemn the people who booed that gay soldier, he said. I have to admit I seriously did not hear those boos. ... But certainly had I, I wouldve said, Dont do that. This man is serving our country and we are to thank him for his service.

I was booing the policy and the question.
There were 2 at most and it was after the soldier asked the question. I think it was the question and not the soldier that was booed.
You against free speech? Cheering and booing are forms of free speech.
He is doing but causing problems for the real Men that are serving My Country.
Probably the question being booed. If he’s gay...ok. If he’s out there dodging bullets and risking death for a country that allows him to live the way he wants in civi life...booing is disgusting. I could care less what he does with his penis. That’s up to God to judge.
What are the odds that a gay soldier would get through with a question...
Spineless Santorum shows us why he is an Ex-Senator.
Well, the administration and homosexual lobby have convinced me that our military is full of homosexuals, so I guess the odds would be pretty good.
I think the questions were submitted earlier and voted on. He didn’t need to say he was gay, he could have just asked his question. He chose to announce that he was gay.
That’s free speech alright, but it is no different than heckling a bad comic. What’s the point. They are trying to discuss serious issues at these debates and we have hooting and hollering from the audience like a bunch of drunk Eagles fans. Decorum matters in my book.
Come on Rick. They weren’t booing asoldier serving his country.
They were booing the latest issue in the culture wars that has been used like a wedge not to enhance military strength or even fairness, but create more social chaos and anarchy in an area that should be free of social expirementation that the social engineers are foisting upon the rest of society. You know that Rick.
He sure didn't.
It was quite obvious that he was a poofer.
I don’t agree with the booing, but I thought it was wrong for this stupid question from the gay soilder to get through in the first place. I thought Sanitarium nailed the answer, then he had to go screw it up by “condemning” the crowd just as the MSM wanted him to.
The soldier had to make the point that he was a fag. Why?
I wish there had been a candidate who told him off for wearing his perversion on his sleeve.
It didn’t prevent any serious discussion. Santorum answered the question and he did a fine job. Gays didn’t like it obviously and now they are trying to stir the pot. He didn’t have to mention that he was gay. He could have just asked the question. If you want the audience to shut up and not react, perhaps he should have shut up and not announced it. That works both ways. jmo
Gays in the military is an incremental step in destroying the family, and implementing State control of how children are raised. Read the Communist Manifesto. You can bet there will be greater demands as time goes on. Acceptance will become enforcement (”not enough gays in the military”).
And I must ask, have we turned “serving our country” into the new race card? Is it the new phrase to shut down dissent and end the conversation?
As I understand it, Santorum condemning booing but did he back track or apologize for the answer he gave at the debate?
How dare people think they have a right to express an opinion! Off with their heads for questioning immorality and bad government policy!
