Howard Stern took to the airwaves on Monday morning to rail against anti-gay politicians like Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann and to praise Sabrina Rubin Erdely's recent story about the war on gay teens in Minnesota. "I'm a huge fan of Rolling Stone magazine," Stern told his listeners in this 12-minute clip from the episode. "When you read what's going on in these small towns with these kids who are out of the closet, and they're getting the shit beaten out of them every day, it's like, wow, does there have to be that much torture?"
