Former senator and Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum blamed the decline of America on indoctrinating the gay agenda in colleges across the country and the media.
 
"If you look at popular culture and what comes out of Hollywood, if you go to our schools and particularly our colleges and universities, they are indoctrinating in a sea of relativism and a sea of antagonism toward Christianity -- religion in general, but Christianity in particular," Santorum said, according to Right Wing Watch. He was a guest on "Washington Watch," a radio show hosted by Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. 
 
Perkins did, however, chime in to add that his Bible-owning third grade teacher regularly punished her students with a yardstick. 
 
"But that was…Before Repressive Government, back when God was still welcome in our schools," Perkins said.
