They're not against all sex, only the kind they can't control or provide rules for. No out of wedlock sex. No gay sex. No sex if you want an abortion if you get pregnant. No sex with anyone other than your spouse (unless it's me doing that, and then it doesn't count). No underage sex. No funding for programs that provide contraceptives so you can have sex without pregnancy. Etc. BUT they also don't want big government/government interference in our lives, so it all leaves me so confused...

Let's see: We have the smug, out-of-touch, unreasonable facsimile of a warm-blooded creature, Romney; Santorum, who's tripping all over himself to get so far to the right that he may well fall off the planet; Gingrich, who has no more business being in this race than a pilot fish has pretending it's a shark; and Ron Paul, who clearly isn't getting sufficient blood flow to the brain anymore, which means he is limited to muttering about the gold standard until he shrivels up and everyone forgets about him.

Somebody needs to let Rick Santorum in on this.
