The wingnuts continue to lose their minds over Sen. Rob Portman changing his position on marriage equality. Andrea Lafferty said his son being gay was like being a drunk driver. Bryan Fischer went for bank robber instead. But Joseph Farah, eager to stake his claim to being the biggest asshole of the three, skips right to serial killer.
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.
Why? Because he thinks that Portman would be okay with his son being a serial killer? And that being a serial killer is anything remotely like being gay?
Few are willing to say it anymore, but I will: Morality is determined by God, not men.
Actually, billions and billions of people are willing to say it. But none of them has yet shown that there is a god to be the source of morality. Which makes this claim pretty much useless.
