Rick Santorum: US is 'Moral Leader of the World' in Fight Against Gay Marriage

Rick Santorum said on Sunday he would continue his campaign to reverse the supreme court decision which legalised same-sex marriage, because the US “is still the moral leader of the world”. On 26 June, the court voted 5-4 in favor of the plaintiff in the case Obergefell v Hodges, who sought to extend rights conferred by a same-sex marriage in one state to another which did not allow it.
Since then, conservative opposition has included calls for a constitutional amendment on marriage, advocacy for laws to ensure religious liberty, and official approval of county clerks who refuse to issue licenses for same-sex marriages.
Appearing on CBS, Santorum was asked about a previous statement that the ruling “disrupts the foundation of the world”.
