Rick Santorum Admits to Getting a Little Excited Watching Michael Sam’s Draft Day Kiss

NEW YORK – Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum admitted to getting a “tad” excited while watching Michel Sam kiss his boyfriend.

Santorum was caught Saturday watching the final rounds of the NFL Draft at the New York City bar, Closest Case. When the first openly gay NFL player Michael Sam was shown on ESPN kissing his boyfriend after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the final round, cameras caught Santorum leaping to his feet and yelling out, “That’s it! Kiss him like an unwed altar boy who’s had too much sacramental wine! Do it like two Ancient Greeks! Get in that mouth!”

Santorum, an outspoken critic of homosexuality who’s fought for the prohibition of homosexual pornography, later clarified his remarks, telling Newslo, “Look, I just got a tab bit excited.

“And this is what I’ve been talking about,” he continued. “Homosexuals aren’t born that way, they’re made. It’s bad enough we have this gay pornography seducing our young men everyday on the Internet, but now we have to see a gay interracial couple locking lips on ESPN. They almost got me. I felt a tickle… Well a twinge down low, but don’t worry. I spent hours after watching videos of women performing certain sexual acts that the Church will certainly forgive me for viewing, since it kept me on the straight path.”

Since speaking to Newslo, Santorum has offered to visit the St. Louis locker room for a special meeting with Michel Sam to, as Santorum said in a video statement released on his website, “prove he loves the man but not the sin.”

Santorum went on to say he’d “prefer to meet after practice. Since I like to get some exercise in myself I figured I could just shower there with the team.”
