Homosexuality Derangement Syndrome continues. The Michigan Republican Party needs to elect a new woman to sit on the Republican National Committee. Three women are said to be in contention. One of them has said she wants gays "purged" from the GOP. Because those perverted gays (being used by Satan to kill the GOP and have his way on this earth) are an affront to God and don't belong among the good Christians who make up the GOP.
Side note: someone might want to point out to this woman that using language like "purging" in reference to undesirable people lends itself to some unfortunate comparisons...
there is real concern that the two normal women running will cancel
each other out and this ranting woman will win. Seriously, go read this rant.
It's so poorly written and formatted, it's almost impossible to tell
what she's really saying. And yet this might be Michigan's official face
of the Republican Party. It's horrifying in and of itself, regardless
of the particular views expressed, that a woman so incapable of making a
coherent point and engaging in public dialogue might have such a
significant role in national level politics.
what I really want to ask, and not for the first time, is why on earth
are so many people so stinkin' focused on this one sin*? Why is it so
unacceptable to have homosexuals in the GOP, but adulterers,
fornicators, liars, thieves, etc. are welcomed without question? Why is
allowing gay people to live without fear of discrimination tearing apart
the very fabric of society but speaking out against greed is a
downright unAmerican attack on capitalism that amounts to class warfare?
has never made any sense to me that this one "sin*" is the bad one, the
one to be singled out, focused on, treated differently. We can't
possibly shun all the sinners (doesn't Christian theology say we're all
sinners?), but it's ok to shun this one type of sinner.
call BS on that. No, I call shenanigans. Is it possibly because calling
out other classes of sin, other types of sinners, just might hit too
close to home? It's the "safe" sin to single out because it's the one
sin so many of these people will never be suspected of. They get to
thump their chests and their Bibles and feel self-righteous knowing it
won't come back on them, even if they get caught cheating on a spouse or
a tax return.
That's gotta be it. They can't ALL be wrestling with sexual feelings they're not comfortable with.
*Recognize that I reject the idea that being gay or having gay thoughts or engaging in gay sex is in any way a sin, a civil wrong, a criminal act, or a bad thing. I'm just using the word this particular woman would use.
