Santorum, it just keeps getting better

Oliver Willis points out another aspect of Santorum's comments: he seems to suggest that the sex scandals in the Catholic church were consensual. SANTORUM: In this case, what we're talking about, basically, is priests who were having sexual relations with post-pubescent men. We're not talking about priests with 3-year-olds, or 5-year-olds. We're talking about a basic homosexual relationship. Which, again, according to the world view sense is a a perfectly fine relationship as long as it's consensual between people. If you view the world that way, and you say that's fine, you would assume that you would see more of it. And, of course, Santorum falls into the typical trap of assuming that gay sex and sex with teenagers is the same thing.
