Richard Grenell makes no sense.
Grenell, who quit after conservatives claimed Romney should not have a gay man among his closest advisers, said “the claim that gays should be barred from conservative activism is not only bigoted but is a bipartisan view.
“The intolerant assault comes from the far right, who object to Republicans who are gay, and the far left, who object to gays being Republicans,” he wrote in the Wall Stree Journal.
“When the extremists on both sides are the only ones speaking up, the majority suffers.”
Mr. Grenell is a “gay rights” activist who went out with a bang, at the end of the administration of George W. Bush, complaining about his male partner not being acknowledged by the White House in a manner to his liking. According to Grenell, social conservatives are “extremists” for being appalled by homosexuality. Homosexual acts are grave sin, in Catholicism, equivalent to murder as one of the four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance.
It is far more difficult for our contraceptive culture to see how contrary to nature homosexuality is. Those of us who instinctively feel its deep unnaturalness rightly react to homosexual activity with disgust, but logical arguments are unlikely to produce the same reaction in those whose instincts are damaged, blunted or rationalized away.
It is precisely in such situations that Divine Revelation is so very useful, for we cannot trust our feelings when they run counter to reality. We require a better guide. Sodomy strikes at the root of human nature because of its perversion of the procreative impulse, without which the race must die. But in case we don’t see it, God does.
But, if we don’t turn the other way — nay, if we don’t fully embrace the idea that homosexual relationships are equivalent to others in normalcy — we’re “extremists?” That’s rich, I tell ya. Rich.
We Christians believe that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins. Catholics specifically believe, as God is not bound by time, that the sufferings of Christ are in every person who suffers innocently, and that with every sin we commit, we are setting the lash to the Flesh of our Lord and nailing Him to the Cross. You want us to stand by and smile while our Lord is crucified? NO.
Christianity and the normalization of homosexual relationships are absolutely incompatible. It is what it is. The fact that Mitt Romney hired Grenell in the first place shows he has no moral core. That’s why it’s a write-in for me, folks, if/when Mitt Romney is the nominee. My conscience won’t allow me to do otherwise. We shouldn’t even be discussing whether the Republican Party should reject Natural Law, let alone nominating someone who doesn’t give one whit about it. Are you kidding me? I have to be able to sleep at night knowing that I’m doing right by the Lord.
Go ahead and call me a bigot. Tell me I”m “helping Obama” by not voting for an immoral person. I’ve heard both a thousand times each and, believe me, my God trumps your subjective reasoning any day of the week.
