Poor Ohio Senator Rob Portman Bullied Into Submission By Big Gay
JoeClarke.Net ^

Posted on 03/18/2013 5:25:27 PM PDT by joeclarke

Senator Rob Portman has made the same fatal mistake as many Neo Christians have, just as his fellow Methodists have by admitting:

"I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for Will to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister. Ultimately, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God...."

Portman's  Methodist "faith" has been embracing homosexuality, for years, as part of God's "Overarching themes of love," which might have anyone believe that adultery, murder, fornication, stealing, and lying may also be winked at, and not reckoned with, because the Lord has this "overarching" tendency to approve of every sort of depravity, since He is a God of love, and never of judgment. God does forgive and cleanse, but one must admit to their sin and  turn toward the Lord, not away. So many neo evangelicals have turned away from God ,because they love their sin more than Him. And Big Gay is always there, encouraging souls to turn away from God's Word.

I have often thought that the much ignored sin of adultery in our society still has consequences, sooner or later from mankind as well as God. McCain, Kerry, Clinton, Teddy Kennedy, Steve Latourette are just a few U.S. politicians, who have damaged their testimony by dumping their wives - years earlier, for no real Biblical reason. I believe they have all been haunted by this behavior, just as more ordinary people are, and that commandment, Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery is ranked very close to Thou Shalt Not Kill.  Although breaking any of the commandments is lethal - save  for the forgiveness afforded  through  the sacrifice of Christ. Even then, there usually are bitter consequences, after forgiveness, such as the Bible's King David losing his son by Bathsheba, and his entire family rebelling against him - after he he received forgiveness.

And, how could Portman's son Will, having come out two years ago as gay - at Yale, of course - cause Senator Portman to, so coincidentally now, believe that God has evolved, just as President Obama, into a sodomite friendly God? Why now? One of Jesus commandments, that I am certain the average Methodist would disdain is, "You must love me . . . more than members of your own family." I know that sounds anti family, but it is actually pro family of God. Jesus even said quite plainly who His family was. Not necessarily His own mother and brothers, but "Those who hear the word of God and do it."  He said there would be a sword, in effect, separating family members, separating those who would follow Him, versus those who follow the affections for their twenty year old sons at Yale.  Choose this day whom you shall serve.

I am also concerned that if Senator Portman can be bullied by Big Gay into making this decision, what is to stop similar liberal bullies from cornering  "conservative" Portman into other compromising positions? Oh, yes Big Gay is deep into very powerful Hollywood, media, academic, ecclesiastical and judicial entities  which are literally bullying any straight  and godly person or group in its path to surrender to the sodomite agenda.. And, there is no satisfying the ravenous appetites of Big Gay.

The Green Movement has lost its hot air, and so the newest sham to be enforced by the advocates of Big Gay has been to bring gayness to pre-schoolers, teens, priests, nuns, and too many churches, high schools and colleges, and God also forbid, the Boy Scouts of America. Sexual role model President B.J Clinton (From Bill Jefferson Clinton) has proclaimed his support for inserting openly  gay scout leaders into the BSA. President Barack Hussein Obama has evolved (lied), now, at the advance age of forty-something, into reconsidering gay marriage as something sacred. I hate to be so partisan, but does it not look like an entire United States  political party has been "Handed over to Satan?" Joint Chief of Staff head General Dempsey on the same gay page as Lady Gaga - supporting military buggery, which the British Navy had the hardest time inhibiting?

Big Gay has brought out all  the big guns from various industries, including those in business, politics and the entertainment industry from Colbert, to Stewart, to Home Depot, to porn queen and part time rabbi Madonna, and, today, Hillary Clinton (Methodist trained) demanded that gay marriage rank with Holy Matrimony, employing her more masculine vocal range to make the announcement.

Reportedly, Madonna lied to procure a Boy Scout Uniform to blast the BSA on stage
at the GLAAD Big Gay award show. Isn't she cute? Not!!


Bullying has always been a problem in schools, but never had it received so much attention until a few gay boys (usually) were reportedly harassed by straight boys -  that launched the problem into the national spotlight. But, who is a bigger bully than Big Gay?

Big Gay has caused Amazon owner Bezos to send large contributions to them. Larger cities have been convinced to celebrate Gay Parades, complete with bikini clad men making out with fishnet hosed boys in the downtown streets. Akron and Cleveland have fought hard to get the Gay Games next year. Sort of like begging for curse. Big Gay has become all the rage, and I do believe it will attract the rage of God. Ancient Rome and Greece and modern New Orleans can attest to this, just to name a few. I have expressed these same thoughts to Ohio Senator Portman and Tweeted his son, Will, at @wdportman, but not with fanatical ravings, just the Word of God. Whether they accept or not is not my problem. So many of  our American clergy are shaking in their skivvies over this subject, not in any way warning their congregations about this "abominable" offense, according to the Bible. I would guess that Senator Rob Portman conferred with his Methodist Pastor and other ministers, who wholeheartedly gave him the green light to Go Gay. The Bible also says that these same ministers will receive greater judgment. They love the praise from man rather than honor from God. It is not we believers who even hate gays, it is those who promote gayness who hate the Word of God. And, yes, they hate us. You never hear the term Compassionate Liberal, and you never will.

Big Gay has gotten to a number of conservatives, including George Will who has never been a man of deep convictions, while in the conservative tent. It seems that famous "conservative" George Will now deems that gay marriage is constitutional, according to this. He does write for the Washington Compost, so it is not unexpected from Willy Nilly George.

I don't know what or who possessed Senator Portman to go off the rail on this ( I actually think I do know who possessed him), but is his son Will, the gay son, even thinking about marriage? Will Senator Portman volunteer, according to his faith, and God's "Overarching Love" (That apparently condones everything), give the bride away? Or, walk him down the aisle according to newer Medthodist traditions? There could be a very awkward future awaiting Senator Portman. He is certainly caught in a very awkward present.

Although I am not Roman Catholic (as I was as a youth), I must admit that the new Pope Francis has tremendous political, and especially spiritual power that can greatly effect billions of people. He is quoted as saying that, "Homosexual marriage is demonic." He could send some fresh air into Western Civilizations that are choking from that extremely  putrefied air emanating from the Left.

I used to read about the great emperors of various civilizations. In the era of greatness and effectiveness, the emperors held their kids to high standards. If they fail they were punished or disowned. In the era where the dynasties became corrupt and ineffective, leaders would set one standard for the people and make allowances for their children. The US leadership is in the later phase. Say one thing and once their family is involve, they relent. a nation cannot achieve greatness if their leaders are not consistent with their standards and apply it to all including own family.

Portmann is toast. His dynasty as a Senator is over. The Republican God Fearing “In God We Trust” Hoosiers (Indiana) will put a fork in Portmann and he will end his days as a Senator and fade away never to be heard from again. Indiana Conservatives do not care for a sell out.

Isn’t it amazing how the Republican party has embraced compromise and selling out instead of standing firm. If that were the case on our founding fathers, we would all be British subjects. Dear Representative, we ARE NOT ALL God’s children. The bible does not teach that. You are only God’s child when you come to the father, admit your sin and receive his free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. So because you probably are not a Christian, you are not really changing your stripes. You are just really making them clearer for all to see.

Theology of glory from Portman. Beyond flawed.

All homosexual cultures were brutal-—like the Samurai—the Bolsheviks, the Spartans, the Nazi Brownshirts/Hitler, Afghanis today and since all of their history, and most serial killers were sodomites and were sodomized as boys—like Manson and Gacy.

They practice mutual group masturbation or rape-—it is a using of other human beings as a “means to an end”-—it is Marxist at its core-—”radical egalitarianism” where women and men are interchangeable. It is totally irrational and evil and ejects “the laws of nature and nature’s God”—the foundational principles of our Constitution (Universal Truths). It is a promotion of Vice (sodomy) which is unconstitutional, since Just Laws can never promote evil and that which goes against Fixed Natural Laws—basis of our legal system.

All homosexual cultures endorses pederasty and child sacrifice and it is sexist-—women are second class citizens. Homosexuals are fixated in their latency period-—virtually idolators who reject maturity. It is why homosexuals are more likely to beat their “spouse”, run them over, way more promiscuous, and kill them-—they are immature—and full of anger at God. “Mocking God” is why they use their bodies in such degrading, dehumanizing ways—it is the Rite in all Occultism/Pagan religions.

There is no “Right” to sodomize anyone-—that “right” only comes from Satan and US Rights come from God.

Fr. Oko’s Report below explains how evil homosexuals are to any organization and how they are destroying the Catholic Church-—and Bella Dodd’s book about the Marxist homosexual infiltration in the 30’s and 40’s validates Fr. Oko-— Evil Sodom and Gomorrah is always the norm with such warped, evil worldview of human sexuality which excludes half of the human race and is idolatry and such a dehumanizing use of body parts. Extremely evil.

Portman wants happiness for his gay son, but unfortunately, he will find his son is anything but happy.

I have met many homosexuals and they carry great burdens - of disease, addiction, promiscuity, depression and violence. I have never seen a “stable” or long-term homosexual relationship. They may exist, but I have never seen one.

Portman is greatly conflicted, but his reversal on his position will not improve one bit the consequences his son will face.

Portman is still in his first or second term as a senator from Ohio..... hardly a dynasty.

Most Reps like him because he was budget director under Bush I think, and smarter than a whip.

Just for the record, the United Methodist Church does NOT officially support homosexuality and/or gay marriage.

The United Methodist Church does not condone the practice of homosexuality and considers this practice incompatible with Christian teaching.

This has been official policy since 1972. Individual pastors, churches, and denominational leadership have pushed and spoken as though the denomination supports it, but officially UMC does not.

Just for the record....

God does forgive and cleanse, but one must admit to their sin and turn toward the Lord, not away.

As was shown so clearly in this past week's Gospel at Mass, and the woman 'caught in adultery', Jesus said "let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone", pointing out they hypocrisy of the men ready to stone her. He also told the woman that He would not condemn her either, but that she was to "go and sin no more".

Yes, God forgives, but He expects that we will no longer commit the sin for which He has forgiven us, or at least make the effort not to do so again. We are not to expect His forgiveness and blithely continue our sinfulness.

Too sadly true. He seems to only want his son's happiness, and believes that accepting his son's chosen lifestyle will bring that about. But he doesn't understand that his son's rejection of the life God made him for will only bring him grief and pain.

Perhaps his son should just change his last name from "Portman" to "Manport."

My view of homosexuality has evolved over the years. When I was young and foolish I believed it was ok. I now believe, even if you don't believe in G-d, you should never teach young people that it's ok. As you've noted the lifestyle has many problems and young people are too easily led down the wrong path. Unfortunately Mr. Portman, according to my belief, has condemned both he and his son, and countless others, to a punishment that brings tears to my eyes. Had he been strong enough to stand by the law of G-d his son may have come around when he matured. Now, I fear, he will get too deep into the homosexual lifestyle to get out.

I am like you. At first I didn't care - I accepted the common argument that it doesn't matter who you "love." Then, in college and beyond, I started to meet many homosexuals, see how they lived. A graduate classmate of mine, who was really quite brilliant in his area of study and whose intellect I admired, was gay. He told me shocking stories of his and others behavior and what "the lifestyle" was all about. He tried to commit suicide 3 times. It opened my eyes and after time, I realized that he was actually quite typical.
