Obama's "refusal to defend a law that was overwhelmingly supported on both sides of the aisle and signed into law by a president of his own party is an affront to the will of the people," Santorum said.

Santorum, a former Senator from Pennsylvania, has long been at the center of the debate over gay rights. As he spools up an expected run for the White House, he's been vocal in his opposition to the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the push for same-sex marriage. Gay rights leaders have struck back at Santorum for years, leaving him with a Google legacy he still has to address today.

Read the whole statement from Santorum below:

"When the definition of marriage has been put before the people, they have time and time again - from Maine to California - stood up in defense of the traditional family. President Obama's refusal to defend a law that was overwhelmingly supported on both sides of the aisle and signed into law by a president of his own party is an affront to the will of the people. This is yet another example of our president's effort to erode the very traditions that have made our country the greatest nation on earth, and it begs the question what language changed in the constitution since 2008 to reverse his position?"
