Anti-Science Santorum: Freeh Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal Report False

Post image for Anti-Science Santorum: Freeh Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal Report False

Rick Santorum, whose presidential campaign fizzled out once America realized how far away from reality he really is, now says the Freeh Report on the Penn State child sex abuse cover up is false. Santorum, who usually place a higher value on faith than since, claims the Louis Freeh’s conclusions don’t match the evidence. The Free Report found Penn State officials, including Coach Joe Paterno, participated in a cover-up, and were devoid of concern for Jerry Sandusky‘s victims.

“I actually read the Freeh Report,” Santorum says in this interview on Dallas-Ft. Worth’s KSKY 660 AM yesterday. “I don’t know if you did or not, but I did. And, my concern with the Freeh report, a lot of the conclusions in the Freeh report aren’t matched by the evidence that they presented and so I’ve been talking to a lot of folks at Penn State and they say, ‘you’re just gonna have to wait for the criminal trial of these two guys at Penn State.’ I think there is going to be a whole new line set on what really went on there. So I’m sort of sitting back and waiting for the facts to come out as opposed to at least I’m being told is a version of the facts. … Let’s get the truth. So I think we’re going to see some things come up a little different in the next six months. I just want to make sure we get it right.”

Zack Beauchamp at Think Progress writes:

Contra Santorum, the Freeh Report’s central finding — that “nothing was done and Sandusky was allowed to continue with impunity” by Penn State’s leaders — has been treated as conclusive by most observers of the scandal. There’s a good reason for that: the report parsed 3.5 million emails and conducted around 430 interviews. A number of emails arrayed in the report’s timeline of events confirm that Paterno, Spanier, and others had been presented with strong evidence of Sandusky’s actions and yet still decided to sweep the events under the rug — enabling multiple instances of abuse to take place. Unless Santorum has reason to believe these were falsified or somehow insufficient, it’s hard to avoid the conclusion that he’s in denial about what took place at his alma mater.

Indeed, when the abuse scandal broke, Santorum expressed support for Paterno, saying “I have no idea what his side of the story is” and “of course I’ll be rooting for him and wish him the best.” Eight months later, Santorum is still supporting the former coach.

In March,

The New Civil Rights Movement reported:

Rick Santorum says that Americans should — but don’t — feel comfortable challenging science, and instead rely on biblical dogma and teachings. Santorum takes two of the most scientifically-settled concepts known to man: evolution and climate change, and says that just because ninety-something percent of the world agrees that both concepts are true and correct, there’s no reason to accept them as fact because here in America, we have our bibles and our faith.

This man is a moron — and an evil one. But this should go-over well with the crowd that thinks it's OK for priests to molest children and the pro-pedofile groupies who are naturally attracted to Rick Frothy Santorum's intellect. The moron will say ANYTHING to get the attention he so desperately needs. I choose to ignore his existence.

It was so pleasant when Santorum was quiet for a few months. Ah, for the good ol' days.

HIs church of the sex starved priests of course – and who covers it up – go all the way to the top..

BTW Santorum remind me of someone I know, Ultra catholic, ultra anti gay. We had about 2 dozen dinner meetings, where I basically frustrated him until he couldnt take it any more and burst out with the following

"1. Gays support the westboro baptist church because it brings them sympathy.

2. Matthew Shepards parents should have fixed him.

The guy claims to be afixed gay who had all kinds of mental problems etc in his youth.. BTW his mother died when he was 7 in about 1950.

MY cousin – a psychologist and her Husband a Psychiatrist – I sent them comprehensivve notes I had made of most of our meetings. They said its obvious he had been molested himself, and to fix him the church terrified him it was his fault, he would go to hell for being gay etc

Bottom line – they not only raped him – Tehy then use him to further their inhumane treatment of other people, especially gays. They have btw had a thousand + years to hone their message.

Santorum per my cousin says that he was also a victim of rape by his church.

And the church's big flap about marriage equailty is just another attempt to deflect from the horror of what they did to chidlren all over the world..

Why per the John Jay report were most of the victims boys – because they didnt allow alter girls until recently.

Here's a couple good things re the church –

There's always shit coming out of Rick Santorum's piehole. It's all he knows how to do, so it comes naturally to him. He's afraid of the truth.

Just another typical twisted response from the Radical Right Insurgency. Their entire platform is fantasy based, meant to deceive the ill educated, low information voter. In this case, Santorum is appealing to the beer swilling, TV watching, all things reported on the Liberal media is BS crowd. Turning to Fox as their source of news, this crowd swallows nonsense like this without investigating or mining for the truth on their own. Tossing these voters red meat like this will insure their votes despite those votes being fully against their own better interests.
