Petition Circulates Demanding Santorum Apologize To Gay Soldiers

Jim Burroway

September 23rd, 2011

At last night’s GOP debate, after the only American Soldier to ask a question the entire night was booed by audience members, GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rick Santorum said that gay soldiers like him should be barred from serving the country. Santorum neither thanked the soldier, identified as Stephen Hill, for his service, nor did he admonish the audience members who booed him. Instead, he denounced the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” as “playing social experimentation” and promised to reinstitute the ban.

Change.org now has a petition up calling on Santorum to “apologize to Hill and all soldiers that he insulted by insisting they had no place in our armed services.”

Santorum shouldn’t have to apologize. He’s sorry enough as it is. Let him freely say what he really thinks, so that we may see him for what he is and openly criticize him for it.

Let him spew his frothy mixture of nastiness and accept the responsibility for his words. Now, what did I need to Google today?

Stuff and nonsense. Surely these people have better things to do than trying to elicit a fake apology from an incorrigible asshat.
