Rick Santorum in the Hot Seat Again for Gay Marriage Stance – ABC News.

I do not like Rick Santorum. Not one bit. 

I want to give some thoughts  regarding Mr. Santorum’s disgusting comments about homosexuals and same-sex marriage. Men like him are the reason so many walk away from the church buildings. People do not enjoy fellowship.

People believe they are not loved. Not good enough. Or not worthy.

Sometimes, not even worthy to live.

Frankly, he makes me ill. But onward.

“Speaking to The Associated Press in a 2003 interview, Santorum said he doesn’t have a problem with homosexuality itself, but with homosexual acts. Cue the confusion.

“If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything.”

We all as Americans have the right to pursue and to have happiness. Period. And what is this reference to consensual sex and incest? How does A=B here? Keep talking, Rick. Cause I think there is something you have not considered. Even if homosexuals are only 10% of the population, you forgot about all the 10 other family members that would not just dump off their children for having an alternative sexual preference. A good percentage of families have no divide and others have a rift and come back together. In other words, We stick up for our gay  kids. We love our queer friends.

We love.

More recently,

“So anyone can marry anybody else? So if that’s the case, then everyone can marry several people … so you can be married to five people. Is that O.K.”?

Maybe when someone like you says its ok, Rick. I mean, anyone in your family been re married for any other cause than adultery? I bet I could dig! Funny how we, as Christians, love to pick and choose. And regarding polygamy, it was at one time well documented and accepted. Pssssttt… Even in our books.

We love committed  and caring relationships. We love equality.

We love.

Finally,

“Religious liberty is now trumped because … the courts have created a ‘super’ right that’s above a right that’s actually in the Constitution, and that’s of sexual liberty. And I think that’s a wrong, that’s a destructive element.”

I’m sorry, Rick. Did a group of arm linked homosexuals deny you access to church? Are the basic rights of  freedom and equality not constitutional?

I know the answer , Rick . They are. I know you think your moral code trumps the constitution. But, I don’t.

By the way, your wife’s hair’s a little short and she doesn’t look to be wearing a veil.

Bad, Homophobic Sweaters: On Demonizing the Salvation Army « In Our Words.

I am a Salvation Army adherent. I believe I am called to serve the poor, hungry, abused, and marginalized. That is why I came to worship and that is why I stay.

I also believe the mainstream Christian churches views on same-sex relationships are outdated and do not follow the most basic Christian rule.

That being love.

I refuse to believe my God does not look in favor at loving, monogamous relationships regardless of sexual orientation.

There is too much pain in this world. Too many homeless, hungry, addicted, enslaved, and lost.  Please know I will do my best to serve you.

How you are. Who you are.

With love and grace in Christ.
