Senator Rick Santorum recently published a book entitled It Takes a Family, in which he believes that the government has weakened the responsibility that families and communities hold in terms of child rearing. He claims that radical feminists, such as fellow Senator Hillary Clinton, have devalued stay at home parenting. Today on the Brian Lehrer Show Senator Santorum discusses the role of government, family and homosexuality.
