Rick follows the rules

Um, is it just me or is it starting to sound like the only thing keeping Rick Santorum heterosexual is the Bible?

In the interview with the magazine GQ, Santorum, R-Pa., was asked what he would do if one of his six children told him of homosexual urges.

"I would treat it like I would any other thing my child comes to me with,'' Santorum answered. "Try to deal with it in a loving, supportive way.''

He continued: "You try to point out to them what is the right thing to do. And we have many temptations to do things we shouldn't do. That doesn't mean we have to give in to those temptations. I have temptations, as we all do, all the time, to do things we shouldn't do.

"Whether we have that disposition because of environmental factors, genetic factors, whatever, it doesn't mean you have to submit. We are people of free will and free choices.''
