Rick Santorum: Apologize To Gay Soldiers!

      Seattle, WA

On 9/22/2011, Rick Santorum deliberately snubbed one of our courageous openly gay soldiers, who was the only servicemember to ask a question during the Fox News/Google debate. We, the undersigned, feel that Rick Santorum must immediately apologize to Hill and all soldiers that he insulted by insisting they had no place in our armed services.  Don't Ask Don't Tell is history now, and these brave men and women do not deserve Senator Santorum's disrespect nor his bigotry.

      EVERY person who puts on the uniform of any of our armed services deserves, at the very least, our respect, if not our thanks.

      A United States Soldier deserves the respect of every civilian. That man is doing a tremendous task, protecting our lives at home, protecting our rights, and most of all protecting our freedom as United States citizens. We owe him our respect, our consideration, our blessings, and dignity for putting his life on the line so you don't have to.

      ...while the response of mr. santorum was deplorable, the failure of any candidate to come to the side of the soldier was even more despicable. it's time for the american people to fight for what politicians seemingly will not -- justice and equity for all.
