Santorum Comes to Iowa City; Hopes to Turn Clock Back on Gay Marriage

Earlier today, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum came to Iowa City seeking potential supporters in this largely liberal community.  He went to Hamburg Inn and wandered from table to table, shaking hands and debating customers about issues like foreign policy and marriage equality.  Not surprisingly, Santorum wants to travel backwards in time and retroactively eliminate my marriage and others like it:
Christopher Patton, a Gary Johnson supporter, stopped Santorum as he approached his table and asked the candidate if he really felt he could "turn back the clock" on progress for gay marriage, considering that some polls show that a majority of Iowans under 30 years of age support it.

Santorum paused. "Yeah, I do," he replied.
Santorum and pretty much every GOP presidential candidate (outside of Mitt Romney and Fred Karger) are coming to Iowa for this weekend's Thanksgiving Family Forum over in Ames, IA.  This event, sponsored by thrice-failed gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats and The FAMiLY LEADER, will allow the different presidential candidates that opportunity to repeat their anti-gay family credentials for the umpteenth million time.
