Rick Santorum Tells Boy Not to Use Pink Bowling Ball

Thank you Rick for saving this young boy from impending homosexuality. I’m positive now that the result of homosexuality must be because of all the times I drank strawberry milk as a child. I found my root! Thank you Rick, you are wise man!

At a campaign event at a bowling alley in Wisconsin today, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum told a boy who reached for a pink bowling ball: “You’re not gonna use the pink ball. We’re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera.” Santorum went on to say “Friends don’t let friends use pink balls.” The comments were tweeted by Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.

“This is another example of Rick Santorum intentionally making ignorant statements that have a real impact on LGBT people,” said HRC Vice President of Communications Fred Sainz. “Whether he’s comparing our marriages to inanimate objects, saying our children would be better off with a parent in prison as opposed to two loving same-sex parents, or calling open military service a ‘tragic social experiment;’ he’s proven that he thinks LGBT people are second-class citizens not worthy of dignity or respect. In this case, he’s advancing tired gender norms by implying a boy should be ashamed or embarrassed to use a certain color bowling ball.”

Santorum’s anti-LGBT record speaks for itself: in addition to his frequent and vitriolic remarks about issues like marriage equality or LGBT families, he consistently voted against workplace protections while serving in the U.S. Senate, and was an early and vocal supporter of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act.

“Kids have enough to worry about,” added Sainz. “They don’t need Rick Santorum telling them that using a pink bowling ball is a bad thing.”

The incident occurs the day after HRC released previously confidential documents outlining NOM’s strategy to use race baiting and scare tactics as a means of attacking issues of LGBT equality. The documents revealed a direct link between Santorum and NOM – he agreed to help the anti-LGBT organization engage activists and fundraise for their anti-marriage causes. Maggie Gallagher has endorsed Romney for president.
