Santorum picks on kids with gay parents

At a recent campaign event at a boarding school in New Hampshire, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum did the Christian thing by telling kids, at least three of which had gay parents themselves, that they’d be better off with parents in prison. The LA Times reports, “For the second time in as many days, Rick Santorum waded into the issue of gay marriage, suggesting it was so important for children to have both a father and mother that an imprisoned father was preferable to a same-sex parent.” Of course we all know, and ThinkProgress reports, “…studies have consistently shown that same-sex couples are just as capable of raising children as opposite-sex couples, and any attempt to suggest otherwise is not only wrong but hurtful to same-sex families and the children they are raising.”
