They Said What??? Rick Santorum, Blake Shelton, & Luke Bryan

FORMER REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RICK SANTORUM

(on Republicans embracing marriage equality):  “I’m sure you could go back and read stories, oh, you know, ‘The Republican party’s going to change. This is the future.’ Obviously that didn’t happen.  I think you’re going to see the same stories written now and it’s not going to happen. The Republican Party’s not going to change on this issue. In my opinion it would be suicidal if it did.”

MORE SANTORUM

(on how the Supreme Court may rule on the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8):  “I think you’ll see, hopefully, a chastened Supreme Court is not going to make the same mistake in the (current) cases as they did in Roe v. Wade.  I’m hopeful the Supreme Court learned its lesson about trying to predict where the American public is going on issues and trying to find rights in the Constitution that sit with the fancy of the day.”

ACTOR JEREMY IRONS

(clarifying his comment, “Could a father not marry his son?” when recently asked about allowing same-sex marriage):  “Perhaps rather too flippantly I flew the kite of an example of the legal quagmire that might occur if same sex marriage entered the statute books, by raising the possibility of future marriage between same sex family members for tax reasons.”

COUNTY SINGER BLAKE SHELTON

(about his co-host of the “Academy of Country Music Awards, Luke Bryan’s sprayed-on tight jeans):  “How about a shout out to the Sherwin-Williams company for spray painting Luke’s jeans on for us tonight.  You know what Motel 6 and Luke’s jeans have in common?  There’s no ballroom.”

COUNTRY SINGER LUKE BRYAN

(response about Blake Shelton’s jeans):  “Blake’s jeans are like buying something on credit…nothing up front. What size is that? Extra empty?

FREE AGENT NFL SAFETY KERRY RHODES

(responding to a photo of him on vacation with his arm another man):  I am not gay.  The shots were taken during a past vacation in a casual environment with my entire business team.”

MORE RHODES

(about professional athletes coming out):  “I know a lot of people are recently talking about atheletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as with those individuals comfort.”
