Mistakenly showing no love to lesbians or bisexual-identifying individuals, Raven-Symoné teed off the conversation noting that she is “a part of the gay and transgender community,” asking “why can we not have equal marriage rights?”

Thunderous applause ensued as Santorum grinned, patiently waiting to respond.

“The whole purpose of marriage,” he noted, “is for society to encourage men and woman to come together to form permanent bonds for the benefit of each other.”

He continued – of course.

The greater purpose of marriage that society has always valued is to bring men and women together so when they have children, there’s a permanent bond by which those children can be raised by their natural mother and natural father.

And when you have a law that says, as the Court said, that marriage has nothing to do with children anymore, then what you’re gonna have is you’re not gonna have a society encouraging the behavior that is in the best interest of children and the future of society.

“I don’t understand why you feel like people in the gay and transgender community can’t raise a very beautiful, smart, intelligent child as well as a man and woman,” Raven-Symoné calmly countered. “I don’t understand why you feel like that community can’t give and provide for that child just as well as a straight couple can.”

Thunderous applause once more.

“It’s in the best interest of the child to be raised by their natural mother and natural father,” he continued to assert to tepid applause.

Michelle Collins, proving her worthiness of a seat at the table, shifted the conversation bluntly asking, “You’re at 1%. At what point do you decide to drop out of this and support someone in your own party?”

“Most people have not made up their mind yet,” Santorum suggested, blaming the media – of course.
