Homophobia and patriotism go hand-in-hand as two men are thrown out of Santorum rally for kissing

in Uncategorized by

Two men who kissed one another were kicked out of presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s rally Friday evening …

Santorum was 15 minutes into his speech when the two men shouted and got the attention of the crowd. They exchanged a kiss, prompting guards to eject them and the crowd to chant ‘U-S-A’ while they were leaving the gym, according to a report in Patch.

Reading this, I’m just so relieved that the crowd changed ‘U-S-A’ while the protesters were escorted out of the event, because homophobia and patriotism go hand-in-hand.  Freaking ridiculous.
