Timing is everything, eh? SO-CALLED ‘marriage equality’ is going to be heard in the Supreme Court and since the debatable inflatable Rob Portman (R-Oh) is suddenly a parent of a gay son and a Republican, his ‘opinion’ will be absorbed like a dirty kitchen sponge. But was his timing not so good with Romney? Everyone found it very curious that Ryan was chosen instead of Mr. Portman…I suppose he was ‘outed’. Mr. Portman caved and may have committed political hara-kiri with supporting same-sex marriage for his gay son. And interestingly Mr. Portman doesn’t have that much support with the LGBT because of the obvious: the LGBT wanted his (everyone’s) political approval without being forced out by his kid. It is kind of a slimy way of trying to gain votes and endorsements.
And since another inflatable, ‘VOTE FOR ME’ Claire McCaskill (D-Mo), can’t be left out of anything, she is also suddenly for same-sex marriage…color me surprised. She says her views have changed over time…considering she was a moderate Democrat about a week ago, if find that to be a bit slimy to get votes.
SIDE NOTE: Personally, I think the Duggars should have a front row seat at the Supreme Court this week.
AND WE HAVE A RINGER: “Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. not only has a cousin who is a lesbian but also that she will be in the courtroom this week with the partner she longs to marry.” That seems quite confrontational, or what most would call a bully.
Which brings me to this: According to a CNN/ORC International survey, 57% say they have a family member or close friend who is gay or lesbian…not that I believe much that CNN says, but the truth is that at least 50% of us has someone in our family that is there to bully us to accept their sexual preference and lifestyle…including mine.
Now with this, our Tenth Amendment is getting yet another smack-down from special interests. Our Constitution is quite explicit: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” What part of this does the Supreme Court NOT UNDERSTAND? They have no right or reason to hear this at all since the States already have ruled on same-sex marriage or will in the near future. While I do not agree at all with same-sex marriage, it is a state issue to be taken up by the citizens of that State.
Let the games begin – and don’t be surprised when everything you’ve ever worked for will be considered a hate crime and you can’t find a job that doesn’t force you take diversity training in spite of your religious values. Personally, I believe that the LGBT needs to create a fund to cover the costs of diversity training that they force corporations to provide and for us to take. Takers? ANYONE?
We don’t need Big Brother…we need GOD:
“Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:24-32
Mr. Portman and Ms. McCaskill, your ‘approval’ will only get you a better seat in the Senate.
