Op-ed: Mrs. Santorum, Can We Talk?
On a recent campaign stop, Karen Santorum accused LGBT activists of 'backyard bullying' against her husband in the presidential race. National Center for Lesbian Rights executive director Kate Kendell responds.

By Kate Kendell, op-ed contributor

Someone's been using the extra bit of cash he got from his surge in Iowa to buy some spin doctor advice. Earlier this week, Rick Santorum, his wife, Karen, and their oldest daughter, Elizabeth, were all talking about how much Rick 'loves gay people' and that his opposition to our right to marry is a 'policy difference.' Karen then added to the obscenity of this utter claptrap by suggesting that gay activists were being 'backyard bullies' in our attacks on her husband and his policies.
