In Iowa, Santorum Calls for National Discussion on Marriage and Family


The Quad City Times:

One of the problems in America today is marriage has become “one of the alternative lifestyles,” former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum said Tuesday.

Speaking to an appreciative crowd of more than 100 at the Historic Park Inn Hotel, the Republican presidential candidate said, “We need to have a national discussion on marriage and family.

“There are two things in this country that will assure you of never being poor — graduating from high school and getting married.

“So marriage is important for our economic security. It isn’t an alternative lifestyle. The bottom line is: Marriage works.”

Santorum spoke and answered questions for about two hours.
