Can anyone explain why Rick Santorum is so obsessed with other people’s sex lives?

    Three reasons:

    1) He’s still jealous of his wife’s old lover, the abortion doctor, a bon vivant who has always been able to attract women.

    2) Cognitive dissonance regarding his and his wife’s own bad choices not to have prenatal testing, which out of eight pregnancies resulted in one child dying two hours after birth and a second with a birth defect which will kill it by age ten, both pregnancies resulting in much unnecessary heartache for his family. To reduce that dissonance, he attempts to ensure that others don’t have the chance to make smarter choices.

    3) The hubristic, non-biblical delusion that his omnipotent god needs him as an agent.

    It’s a sad trait that seems to come from many overly-religious groups. I think it’s some psychological side effect from the sexually repressive nature of their doctrine.

    there was an overly religious sect in France that went around aborting babies because they felt abortion was better then bringing a soul into a world of sin. They were eventually hunted down. Americans as a whole are sexually frustrated, that’s why I loved my 10+ years in Europe.
