• “Be glad Portman’s son isn’t serial killer”


    Slippery slope personified.

    I’ve heard some wacky excuses by politicians for changing their minds on some of the most important moral issues facing American, but Ohio Sen. Rob Portman’s rationale for flip-flopping on same-sex marriage takes the proverbial wedding cake.

    In case you haven’t heard, his son is a homosexual.

    “I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married,” Portman wrote in a commentary published Friday in the Columbus Dispatch.

    I guess we should all be grateful Rob Portman’s son didn’t choose to become a polygamist or a serial killer.

    Yup. You read right.

    Few are willing to say it anymore, but I will: Morality is determined by God, not men.

    So… when Lot’s daughters got him drunk and had sex with him, that was moral? When King David had Bathsheba’s husband killed so he could marry her (after lusting after her and getting her pregnant), that was moral? All the genocide occurring when the children of Israel were claiming the “promised land” was moral?

    But that’s the old testament.

    If the Bible were such a moral book, why do people like article author Joseph Farah allow their wife to run around without head covering? (1 Cor 11)

    Also, what’s with the prosperity gospel’s popularity when Jesus Christ himself called gentiles (us) “dogs.” (Matt 15)

    Ugh. I’m on a high horse. Better dismount.

    Whom are you going to believe – the Creator of the universe or Rob Portman?

    Uhhhh, I’d probably believe Portman. At least he doesn’t call me a dog.
