The head of a religious right group warns that Republican Senator Rob Portman‘s son may get AIDS, or oral cancer, and die, because he’s gay. The Government Is Not God PAC, which claims to be “The Oldest Social Conservative Political Action Committee,” is headed by William J. Murray, who writes:
Portman has conveniently ignored the warnings against the sin of homosexuality in both the Old and New Testaments – and is accepting a behavior that may eventually kill his son from AIDS, other sexually transmitted diseases, or oral cancer.
Homosexual sex is ultimately just as destructive as cocaine use. Would Portman suddenly call for the legalization of cocaine if his son had announced that he was a cocaine addict? Would that be “loving” and “compassionate”?
Will Portman support “group” marriage – which is the next phase of the gay agenda?
What if his son had announced that he’s really a girl trapped inside a boy’s body – and wanted a “sex change” operation? Would Portman support his son’s mutilation of his male body to become a fake female? How would that be loving?
Or, what if his son had been involved in insider trading and ripped off thousands of investors? Would he support his son’s behavior and call for the legalization of insider trading?
What sort of core values motivate a U.S. Senator to change his mind about a sexually destructive behavior simply because his son is involved in it? What will happen to Rob Portman’s belief system when he discovers that his son is infected with HIV or throat cancer?
Welcome to the Religious Right — filled with Jesus’ love. Or, so they believe.
Note: As of this writing their site is became available — likely their server is not used to getting much traffic — which is why we’re glad we took a screenshot of it, above.
Also, to Senator Portman’s son, we’re sorry the religious right is attacking you and you’ve become a casualty of their hatred and ugliness. We admire your courage.
