"Dull As Dirt," GOP Senator Changes Mind On Gay MarriageSubmitted by zooamerica on Fri, 03/15/2013 - 22:18
The GOP has just been excavated....
(NEWSER) – You might remember Sen. Rob Portman as a top Mitt Romney surrogate and VP shortlist candidate...we deemed him "dull as dirt."
Well, today he's doing something decidedly not dull: He's announcing an about-face on his longstanding opposition to gay marriage.
In an interview with CNN, the Ohio conservative reveals that his 21-year-old son, Will, is gay, and that discovering that fact two years ago caused him to rethink his position.
Funny how God has a way of sending a message to people...
I hope Rand Paul supports Senator Portman. The GOP has been stained for far too long by the Frothy's of the far right who are just as bad as the Big Sister's of the far left.
The Mullah's or the Bolsheviks? No thanks. I think it's fair to say that the vast majority of the American people are in the middle - socially liberal, but economically conservative.
Will Rand run to the right, or will he march to the Middle?
Marriage is a contract between you, your spouse, and the state....anyone who as ever been through a divorce knows exactly that. It's actually not a religious thing, hence people getting married in Vegas with, "Elvis," serving as the, "priest."
Marriage is a contract. Some people think it's a religious tradition and get married in a church, but some people say to hell with official doctrine, lets get drunk and married in Vegas. And some people say screw all the pomp and ceremony, let's just go to the Town Clerk and ask for a marriage license.
Marriage contracts are all the same, regardless of religion or how much money people spend on a wedding.
The words, "gay," and, "homosexual," are very modern words...they are most definitely not ancient Greek, or Hebrew words from the Bible.
The term “homosexual” is of modern origin, and it wasn’t until about a hundred years ago that it was first used. There is no word in biblical Greek or Hebrew that is equivalent to the English word homosexual. The 1946 Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible was the first translation to use the word...

What would Jesus do?
Say marriage is exclusive to only 1 man and 1 woman who can get divorced on a whim, or would He say marry a person who you truly love and keep them forever in all of God's eternity?
