He is all about pushing his war on Gays. This week he claimed we have had a jihad against him since 2003.

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, whose antigay metaphors of comparing napkins to paper towels and napkins to cars have become legendary, told a crowd in Spartanburg, South Carolina, that the gay community has waged a jihad against him over his opposition to marriage equality.

So we are holy now?

The alleged holy war against him hasn't silenced the former senator from Pennsylvania, however, who continued to deride gay marriage in his own inimitable way.

So are we Islamic or are we Nazi's? Get your metaphors lined up please.

Santorum went on to say that same-sex marriage will not only destroy the institution of marriage, it will destroy the faith community and "ghetto-ize as bigots" those who "preach the biblical truth."

After rehashing his napkin analogy he added cars to the discussion. I really can not understand what he is trying to impart with the car analogy.

Starting at 00:52 on this video after his napkin/car speil:

Back in 2003 I believe it was there was a case up before the United States Supreme Court. One that made me famous in the Gay and Lesbian, well I shouldn't say famous, infamous in the Gay and Lesbian community.

It was called Lawrence v. Texas I did an interview about it before the case was decided. And I said if the case is decided and it says that this law is unconstitutional. The court says this law is unconstitutional because adults, consenting adults have the right to sexual activity.

Any consensual activity then we will see not only marriage destroyed then you will see ultimately the faith community destroyed and ghettoized as bigots because they stand up and teach biblical truth.

I said if the Supreme Court says you have the right to consensual sexual activity then you have the right to incest you have the right to polygamy you have the right to all these other sexual variations.

So the Gay community said "He's comparing Gay sex to incest and polygamy, how dare he do this?" And they have gone out on (mumbles) jihad! against Rick Santorum since then.

What would a Gay Jihad look like?

Well obviously it would involve glitter:

Glitter.

And rainbow flags:

Rainbow Flag

And dancing:

And civil rights organizations like the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. And legal help from the ACLU.

And attack ads:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
