Presidential candidate Rick Santorum spoke at a "Restore Marriage Rally" this morning in downtown Concord, telling roughly three dozen people gathered in the Holiday Inn parking lot that one-man, one-woman marriage is the glue that holds families together, and American society is based on the family.
"Our country is not founded on the individual," Santorum said. "It is founded on the basic unit of society, which is the family. You don't want to found your society on individuals, because that's like founding a house on grains of sand."
The gathering was part of the Family Research Council Action’s national "Values Voter Bus Tour." Council President Tony Perkins spoke at the rally, as did Christopher Plante, northeast regional coordinator for the National Organization for Marriage, and Cornerstone Action Executive Director Kevin Smith.
