Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Rick Santorum, who usually devotes himself to obsessing about fetuses, took a break to return to his second favorite obsession: gay sex. Man, he loves gay sex. When he's not making his kids kiss dead fetuses, or blaming his wife for the controversial parts of the book he authored, or throwing up because of JFK, he just cannot stop thinking and talking about gay sex and how if all consenting adults have the same rights to visit each other in the hospital or take advantage of those tax breaks Republicans love, it's pretty much just like men fucking dogs. And that's why stopping marriage equality in the state of Washington is the Most Important Fight For Freedom Evah!TM
Ex-Sen. Rick Santorum entered the campaign against same-sex marriage in Washington state on Tuesday with an apocalyptic warning about its potential consequences on America’s families and churches.
The former Republican presidential candidate spoke to a closed-door Spokane fundraiser for the Family Policy Institute of Washington. [...]
“The movement you are fighting is the most important movement to win,” Santorum added. He said it is even more important that the movement to block abortion in America. He warned that marriage will “disintegrate” along with the American family if same-sex marriage becomes legal.
“This issue will destroy and undermine the church in American more than any other movement,” said Santorum.
Do we even need to debunk this crap? Marriage will lead to the disintegration of the family? Really? And also, did he not get the memo that it's birth control that will destroy the Church? I mean, duh! His fellow Republicans who haven't yet been fired by the voters even held a hearing about it. It's also just like Pearl Harbor Day and 9/11, which has to be worse than the disintegration of the family, right?
Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, Rick, get your talking points straight. The order of threats to America and freedom is (1) birth control, (2) Obamacare, (3) taxes, (4) women, then marriage equality. Duh.
You can watch the entire nauseating 35-minute video if you must. Or if you're a hardcore masochist.
