    Rick Santorum Blames Gay Marriage, Abortion And Porn Ideals On College Indoctrination



    Rick Santorum said the nation's colleges are promoting a "sea of antagonism toward Christianity" and "indoctrinating" its youth with ideals that support gay marriage, abortion and pornography.

    Santorum called in to Tony Perkins' "Washington Watch" on Tuesday to talk about the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling. The conversation dealt not only with abortion but also included other "symptoms" that have changed the nation.

    Perkins spoke broadly, saying pro-choice Americans represent a troubled country that doesn't choose life, meaning "That is to follow the principals, the teachings, the instructions of God ... You see that as you've been in Washington, D.C. There is a rejection of this idea of truth, and that there is a foundation or morality, which needs to be upheld."

    Santorum agreed, adding that less young people devote themselves to Christianity. "If you look at the popular culture and what comes out of Hollywood, if you go to our schools and particularly our colleges and universities, they are indoctrinated in a sea of relativism and a sea of antagonism towards Christianity."

    "Abortion is a symptom. Marriage is a symptom. Pornography [is a symptom]," he continued. "All of these are symptoms to the fundamental issue that we've gotten away from the truth and the 'Truth-Giver.'"

    Santorum has long been against gay marriage and anti-abortion. When he was in the running for the GOP presidential nomination, he vowed to initiate a war on porn if elected. Santorum received his undergraduate degree from Pennsylvania State University, an M.B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh and a J.D. from the Dickinson School of Law but has criticized the notion that college is a critical entry point to the middle class.

    "President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob!" Santorum said last February, according to the New York Times. "There are good, decent men and women who go out and work hard every day and put their skills to the test that aren't taught by some liberal college professor trying to indoctrinate him. I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image."

    The Times highlighted a 2008 study that disproved the theory that going to college makes students increasingly liberal. The study found that 18 to 24-year-old students' ideals shifted somewhat leftward, but this was in line with normally occurring shifts in that age group regardless of education.

    Those are the symptoms of the moral decline as opposed to the cause. Frothy is wrong.
    “Our illegal population alone exceeds the all the Irish, Jewish and British immigrants who came. Each year, we catch more people breaking in at the border than all the Swedes and Norwegians who came to America in 200 years. Half a million illegal aliens succeed in breaking in every year, more than all the Greeks or Poles who came legally from the Revolution to 1960..” - Patrick J. Buchanan

    I don't think they could build prisons fast enough for a war on porn.

    That's funny, I've been in college for over 2 years now, and have yet to hear the promotion of(or even mention of) any of those things. In almost all of my classes(my first year), hardly anyone even talked to each other, let alone participated in class discussions.

    Santorum is more fixated on homosexuality than anyone I know who's out of the closet.

    It's a good bet that he is IN he closet.

    Public education is not education ... it is schooling.
    Our military is not defense ... it is warmongering and empire building.
    Government police do not protect ... they control.
    Regulations do not regulate ... they protect the status quo.
    Government banks do not distribute money based on effort ... it is gifted to close friends ... and some of it trickles down.

    The result is war, poverty, fear, chaos, and hopelessness for most people with abundance for a few elite.

    Wtf, are you in a private school or something?

    I would say LGBT issues were the biggest push when I was in school. Everybody was already pro-choice. Porn was just something that every guy utilized and a couple of activists may have been against the 'degradation of women' or something, but nobody took them seriously.

    But the thing is, gay marriage is a no-brainer. There is no reason the government shouldn't allow gay people to get married, what a tyrannical notion. Even if I were against the idea of gay marriage, I still wouldn't use the government to ban it. I would probably vote w/ Ron Paul at the federal level because states should be allowed to ban it, but it's still a tyrannical thing for them to do.

    I'm certainly no fan of Santorum, as his foreign policy is simply atrocious, but I don't see how anyone can argue with this statement:

    "If you go to our schools and particularly our colleges and universities, they are indoctrinated in a sea of relativism and a sea of antagonism towards Christianity."

    Most colleges are not religious ones so teaching islamism or christianity is normally not on the list of prerogatives

    A good time to remind the prog gun-grabbers that the possibility of a Dictator Santorum is why THEY need the 2nd Amendment.
    "The State, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing."

    I didn't say that they should teach Christianity, but a lot of these universities are openly hostile to Christianity, and also openly hostile to any political point of view that is non liberal.

    idk man. That's just how life works. I don't think it's an institutional bias, but teachers\professors have really strong opinions. Sometimes you just have to tell them whatever they want to hear.

    I mean what's your goal...to get an A. Figure out how to get it and move on.

    More likely a community college with a larger population of adults with real life issues to deal with and other students with a mind on getting ahead rather than spending time on peripheral issues.

    As much as I've heard community college preaching on this forum for saving money, the reputation of city college in my experience is that it is completely worthless and barely anybody graduates. Hell, my gf has been at community college for almost 6 years and still doesn't have a fucking 2 year degree. I'm not saying it can't be beneficial for some people, it does save some people money and allow them to move onto higher institutions and graduate at a lower cost, but I wouldn't put community college students as a group above university students. If anything the reason nobody talks about shit is because they don't give one.

    None of that really has anything to do with my comment. Students living on a university campus going to school fulltime are going to have more time to get involved in activist issues than the majority of CC students with real jobs, families and households to take care of.

    That is a cancer in Society at large, not "just" in the schools.

    I will suggest that MORAL RELATIVISM is a gateway rationalization for ANYTHING GOES. File Sodom & Gomorrah under SABOTAGE.

    That said, I believe bloody Civil War would be better for America and the world, than Santorum as Boss Man.
