Santorum ‘Absolutely’ Would Have Voted For Arizona’s Discrimination Legislation

Speaking to the National Review at CPAC a few weeks ago, Rick Santorum was asked about Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s veto of legislation that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against gays.

Santorum declared that religious liberty was of the utmost importance because the freedom of conscience is “the trunk upon which all other branches of rights flow from” and warned that the government has been systemically suppressing that right.

Host Patrick Brennan then noted that Republicans like Mitt Romney and John McCain had openly opposed the discrimination legislation in Arizona and asked Santorum whether or not he would have supported it.

Not surprisingly, Santorum did not hesitate to answer, declaring immediately that he “absolutely” would have voted for such legislation.
