Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum filed for divorce today.

According to papers signed by an Allegheny County judge, the former Republican presidential candidate cited irreconcilable differences with his wife of 23 years.

"Unfortunately the homosexuals have ruined my marriage," he explained to reporter Bruce Nolan. "Every year more and more of them get married, and every year the relationship with my wife gets worse.

"Ever since the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, we've been sleeping in separate rooms. It's like I don't even know who she is anymore. This is what the gays want: to destroy the institution of marriage. We won't be the last."

According to the filing, the pair have agreed to split all assets equally and share joint custody of their children. His wife will keep the family home and automobiles, while Santorum will keep most of the couple's wardrobe.

Several seasoned divorce attorneys say that such an amicable financial settlement is unusual. But in an exclusive interview Santorum explains money was never really the issue.

"The real problem was in the bedroom," he says. "My wife kept complaining that I talked too much about gay sex while we were making love."

:D

The fact that I believed the headline and first couple paragraphs says more about Santorum than me.

I believed the entire thing.  I find it very difficult to tell when such stories are true.

This is  because there doesn't seem to be any limit to the type of ridiculous nonsense many Christians believe.

I noticed it after I realized the article was satire... which made it even funnier.

Non-believers of superstitious nonsense (such as religious nonsense) might believe in other types of nonsense, but at least it won't be based on superstitious nonsense.

About 8 years ago or so I was closing up the outer gates of a big national historic park site I was working at.  As I stood on the gate changing signs to closed up came Mr. Santorum and a huge posse of talking heads and his family.  He strode right up to me, big smile on his face, and greeted me with “hello I’m Rick Santorum and need to get into that building for some publicity shots.”  I responded that while it was nice to meet him security had already left and without a specific film shoot appointment I couldn’t let him in.  The smile dropped immediately and with a scowl he said “you do know who I am right” I told him I did, but the rules of the Park were for everyone and even if I wanted to let him in with security gone I had no rights to do the mandatory search.
It exploded, a thousand voices came at me, but I had no intention of doing anything but my job.  Eventually a supervisor, craving the celebrity moment, ran out and ushered his posse in.  As he walked up by me, he said “see, that wasn’t so hard.”  “To which I replied, no sir it wasn’t, it’s just to be bad that in the birthplace of liberty where we are all deemed equal citizens rules only apply to those not in the public eye.”

Thanks, that was my entire point really.  Rules are rules, they are meant to apply to all not some.  As a side note people had been written up for not following these the strict post 911 guidelines.  It wasn't personal or political, I was just doing my job.  It's a shame he couldn't see that and was running on "me" time.

I think that it is pretty safe to assume that a gay man has experienced the negative effects of many people's Christian beliefs, as have Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Native Americans, and almost every other class of people that were discriminated against by God fearing Christians.

Just by being a vociferous non-believer one experiences the negative effects of Xtian extremism and discrimination.

In the Bible Belt it is not ok to be an agnostic or an atheist, it is almost as bad as being gay or black skinned.
