From National Review:

As he stepped on the stage at the National Organization for Marriage gala and under the spotlight, with the cameras rolling, Rick Santorum pushed back against the GOP candidates — from Kasich to Christie to Graham — who say it’s time to move on. “When people tell me it’s time to move on, when I hear presidential candidates saying that, here’s what I say to them: Why do you want to be president?”

To those who say we should calm down and wait and see how bad it is, Santorum had this answer:

“Ask Brendan Eich whether we should wait and see whether you can lose your job because you were on the wrong side of this issue. . . . Ask Kelvin Cochran, an Atlanta fire chief who wrote a book for his Bible study. Ask Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes by Melissa . . . This is not a future thing that is going to happen. It is happening now, and as president in the first 100 days, I will pass the First Amendment Defense Act into law.”

Pointing to his young son Daniel who is headed for the Air Force, Rick Santorum, our would-be commander-in-chief, returned again to the military:

“Ask military chaplain Wes Modder, disciplined for giving Biblical advice as a chaplain in private, if we have a problem. Ask Monifa Sterling, thrown out of the military for taping a scriptural verse on her computer — no, not the verse you think. It was “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” This isn’t a prediction about what will happen tomorrow. It is happening now, under this president.”

Then, pointing to himself, he made a promise: “And under this president, it will end.”
