Former Gay Staffer Defends Santorum’s Anti-Gay Views

Former Rick Santorum aide Robert Traynham, who was outed as gay in 2005, continues to defend Santorum’s social conservative views.

Of course, contrary to Traynham’s claims, Santorum reiterated just this week that his Catholic faith teaches that “actions are the problem, not feelings,” calling it a “problem” when gay people act on their attractions. (HT: Towleroad.)
