Rick Santorum told conservative Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson today that he pities the man who covered him with glitter over the weekend. “Glitter bombs” have been used to protest anti-gay policies, but Santorum says he feels “sorry” that this person felt the need to respond and promised to pray that he works out his struggles:

SANTORUM: It’s one of those things where there are a lot of people out there who are hurting, who are struggling with a lot of different issues. My feeling is, that’s part when you open yourself up to the public, you’re going to get good things happen to you and not so nice things. What I’m taking the approach of is you move on. I feel sorry for that man that he felt like he was compelled he had to do that. Like I do, what I’m supposed to do, is you know, according to our faith, is to pray for them, and I hope people work that out.

Mickelson commiserated that Santorum has been the victim of “seething, satanic, wicked hatred” for the way his name has been smeared because of his anti-gay politics.

Here again is video of the Iowa man tossing glitter at Santorum:
