This is just a reminder that the everyday Joe (Jenny) can actually do something. And by something I'm suggesting that people write/call Sen. Smith and Wyden about Sen. Rick Santorum's (R-Penn) remarks about homosexuality. It is important that you let our representatives know that the people of Oregon do not agree with such hate.
For those of you not aware of what happened:
In an AP interview, Santorum was asked about the case before the Texas Supreme Court about thet states Sodomy Laws. Under these laws, two consenting adult males (read: Gay couple) cannot have sex. Inside their own home no less. Santorum said that if the court allowed such behavior, it would also have to allow bigamy, incest, adultery, polygamy, and beastiality. He then went on to say that the average citizen has no right to privacy at all. To finish off his little speach, Santorum said, "I have no problem with homosexuals, I have a problem with homosexual acts (Granted this isn't word for word)." This blatant non-logic and thinly veiled hate can't be tolerated (haha, thats kinda funny, in a tragic sense).
All i'm asking if for you to take the few minutes to make the call or write the email.
A much more literate response to Santorum's remarks (and even a simple way to contact your senators) can be found at: http://www.pfaw.org/pfaw/general/default.aspx?oid=10279
