Fox News contributor and former GOP presidential candidate Pat Buchanan today is wondering why America doesn’t become more like Russia. In his regular World Net Daily column, Buchanan says that Russian President Vladimir Putin is merely trying to remodel his country on good Christian orthodox values. And of course, those values do not include any support for LGBT people or what Buchanan refers to as “homosexual propaganda and acts.”
In fact, Buchanan essentially says that Putin knows that in a Good Society,” “homosexual propaganda and acts” are “evil.”
Pope Benedict XVI reiterated Catholic doctrine that homosexuality is a “strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil,” an “objective disorder.” That homosexual acts are unnatural and immoral remains Catholic teaching.
Thus, if we seek to build a Good Society by traditional Catholic and Christian standards, why should not homosexual propaganda be treated the same as racist or anti-Semitic propaganda?
We can no longer even agree on what is good and evil.
When Pope Francis said, “Who am I to judge?” he was saying that a sexual orientation is something over which an individual may have no control, dating to birth or infancy. Hence homosexuals ought not to be condemned, but welcomed into the community.
As for homosexual propaganda and acts, that is another matter.
Buchanan, now 74, was a senior advisor to Nixon, Ford, and Reagan, but today may be best known for the positions in his last book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?, and for this disgusting comment:
“America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.”
