Former Senator Rick Santorum predicted that the Supreme Court would not side with same-sex couples who are arguing for recognition of their perversion of the definition of marriage. He also warned it would be political suicide for the GOP to back such a perversion.

"I'm sure you could go back and read stories, 'The Republican Party's going to change. This is the future.' Obviously that didn't happen," he told The Des Moines Register.

"I think you're going to see the same stories written now and it's not going to happen," he continued. "The Republican Party's not going to change on this issue. In my opinion it would be suicidal if it did."

While many, like Newt Gingrich, as well as Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL), have jumped on the band wagon to embrace homosexuality and the bastardizing of the institution of marriage, it's good to hear that there is still some morality in the GOP.

While I disagreed with much that Rick Santorum said during the Republican primaries, especially when it came to the Constitution, budgets, spending, and foreign policy, I always thought that his stand against perverting marriage and his strong pro-life stance was admirable. I personally believe those stands alone is why he showed such a strong following in the midst of the primaries.

Santorum will be in Iowa Next week to speak on the idea that the GOP will never embrace marriage rights for anyone but hetero-sexual couples, even though there are some voices in the Republican Party that are embracing it.

"One of the things I learned from the last four years is that when you go to Iowa, people pay attention to what you say," he said. "That's always a gift that Iowa can bring to any person in public life. We're going to talk about the concerns I have."

Santorum called the support being seen "an increasing mood," but also said "it is not a well thought-out position by the American public."

He referenced Portman and Kirk's endorsement of redefining marriage and pointed back to the 1960-70s concerning abortion when, as he said the courts "started mucking around with pro-life statutes at the state level." The thought that Republicans would eventually come around to that issue he says never would happen.

"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," Santorum said. "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."

I think that is true for a majority, but I confess that I have heard many Republicans protest that abortion is not an issue and should be left to privacy.

While Santorum indicated that it is healthy on how the party communicates its message, he said that changing the foundational principles is something else.

"Just because some of those things happen to be popular right now doesn't mean the Republican Party should follow suit," he said.

In that statement I totally agree. The GOP needs to lead, not follow. They need to "do," not provide rhetoric. If they don't and they wish to become more moderate, or more centrist, or more liberal, then they will go the way of the dinosaur. Perhaps in many respects they have gone that way and there is a new rising of people who are coming up through the ranks who have some principles and the spine to stand for those principles. Let's hope it multiplies.
