College student Spencer Austin prays for Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. He stands in the side of a ballroom during a campaign rally featuring Santorum. Austin wears rosary beads over a Santorum sweater vest. Nobody else is praying or noticing him pray. His prayer was brief. Austin is a staunch Roman Catholic (as is Santorum). He always wears a cross and sometimes wears the Santorum vest at his college where he's a sophomore. He says these additions to his attire result in harassment on campus. "I get things thrown at me--paper wads. People heckle me. I was called a gay hater for supporting Santorum and being pro life." ©Chris Fitzgerald / CandidatePhotos
