Day of Silence - THIS is what it's all about

Tomorrow marks the annual Day of Silence, the student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.

The religious right HATES this event and have told so many lies about it. They claim it's about indoctrination, sexual intercourse, the corruption of innocence.

They are LIARS. And don't pay so much attention to them that you ignore the real voices who matter.

Like these New Jersey students:

Stinky Santorum wants to be President

Look who wants to be President:

Former senator Rick Santorum announced the launch of a presidential exploratory committee for the next election cycle on Wednesday night during an appearance on Fox News.

Earlier in the day, Santorum alerted his supporters that he would be addressing the next step of his decision-making process ahead of 2012 on the network.

"Over the past two years, I have traveled our great nation listening to people express their concern for the future of America," he wrote in an e-mail.

"Throughout this journey, my wife Karen and I have been incredibly humbled by the encouragement I have received to run for President in 2012."

While recent polls haven't shown Santorum running toward the front of the potential GOP presidential pack, the former senator came out on top of a straw poll taken at the Greenville County Republican convention in South Carolina last weekend.

The fact that this clown actually won any straw poll in South Carolina is an embarrassment to the Palmetto State period.

But I will say one thing for Santorum. When it comes to lgbt equality, he isn't a flip-flopper like another Republican candidate, Tim Pawlenty. Pawlenty supported lgbt equality and now suddenly doesn't think it's a good idea.

No, Santorum never liked the idea that lgbts are equal from the beginning. Of course the most infamous time he expressed this is in 2003 when he compared our relationships to incest, polygamy, and bestiality. As we all know, that led Dan Savage to take the word "santorum" and use it to coin a phrase describing a byproduct of anal sex (which I am too much of a gentleman to repeat).

That, I am hoping, will be Santorum's enduring legacy to this country.

But the following clip in which Santorum just totally disrespects lgbt families is a moment I hope lgbt voters won't forget, particularly those lgbt voters who don't like President Obama:

Just imagine having someone like that in the White House. I'd rather have a snake I can work with rather than one who would put me in a titanium steel closet.
