As reported by countless media outlets, Santorum has stated that the American family’s right to privacy should be eliminated in favor of surveillance and prosecution by Big Government, particularly when relationships inside the home — gay, nonmarital or extramarital — offend local or national bureaucrats.
The White House and GOP leadership have been understandably silent, thus far, about Santorum.
Bush and Republican Party officials have always placed a very high value on public loyalty. Disloyalty is viewed as an extreme moral failure. When groups or individuals express disloyalty or ingratitude toward the leadership, these groups are gradually eased away from the corridors of power. Gary Bauer is but one example of religious-right activists who have crossed the GOP, and lost.
Now America waits to see whether Exodus and other religious-right organizations join FRC in acts of betrayal against the GOP.
