Santorum’s Backers Beg Dan to Quit Savaging the Candidate’s Name
Anyone who has Googled "Santorum" recently is well aware of the "frothy" website that pops up as the number one search result. The conservative and anti-gay group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality has become aware of the hilarious page, and its president, Peter LaBarbera, is asking the site’s creator, gay activist Dan Savage, to take it down.
"Today, I appeal to homosexual activist Dan Savage: take down your anti-Rick Santorum hate-site, Santorum.com," LaBarbera said in a statement.
"We get it, Dan, you HATE Rick Santorum, and you want to punish him for comments he made about the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing sodomy," he argues. "But as a prolific writer and advocate, surely you have abundant opportunities to address Santorum’s arguments civilly -- without resorting to cruel, twisted campaigns designed to destroy a man’s name and reputation by associating it with perversion."
Savage’s website shows an image of a "brown stain" on a white background with his unique "definition" of the word Santorum: "Santorum (san-TOR-um) n. 1. The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex."
Dan Savage is a media pundit and journalist who has a syndicated relationship and sex column called "Savage Love." He, along with his husband Terry Miller, also started the "It Gets Better Project" to prevent suicide among LGBT youth.
