Rick Santorum Comments on Cancellation of Grosse Pointe South High School Speech

Verona, PA - Former Republican presidential candidate and Patriot Voices Chairman Rick Santorum issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of his upcoming speech at Grosse Pointe South High School in Michigan: 

"It's a sad day when liberal educators are allowed to influence young minds - extending free speech rights only to those who share their liberal views.  I support traditional marriage; I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman.  I'm not sure what the administrators in the Grosse Pointe Public School System are afraid of, but these students deserve the respect to form their own opinion on this important issue.

"Furthermore, anyone who has ever seen me speak knows I rarely use prepared text.  In the case of Grosse Pointe High School - I was never asked for a copy of a speech, nor did I send one.  This has nothing to do with the content of a speech, but rather the context of my convictions."

Rick — we both know exactly who and how you got outed from your senate seat. My advice: don’t ever utter the word “gay” again, every time you do your credibility and chances at elected office diminish. Why not focus on issues people can actually support you on?

When i do have children i won’t be in the finanicial situation for my wife or I to stay at home all day to homeschool like mr. Santorum. Personally i think people that are all about home schooling are often afraid their children may go out in the world and discover their parents viewpoints are bs. Same reason Mr. Santorum who has a vest level of higher education would preach that telling kids to go to college a form of snobbery.

And my beef would be that I live close to grosse pointe and pay michigan state taxes that go to public schools which I don’t feel should go to providing a location for Rick Santorum to make a speech that he is profiting on and push his 2016 presidential campaign.
