LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Santorum speaks the truth! Can we handle it?

Advertisement

Candidate Santorum reflected on the results of what he termed the "sexual revolution" in our society. He noted that the changing mores have resulted in more STDs, more unwanted pregnancies, more abortions and more single mothers trying to raise children without a husband. He stated what I would consider to be the truth.

The media took Santorum to task for his narrow-minded views, in part, I think, because the active pundits enjoy the freedom of a society that has changed the concept of procreation into recreation. It is not the first time that someone has been severely criticized for speaking truth.

Over the centuries, those with enough courage to point out the foibles and shortfalls of society have had to pay the price, some with their lives. As Jack Nicholson once famously said, "You can't handle the truth." Can we?
