Skip to comments.RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to GOP: Don’t go ‘Old Testament’ on gays
Posted on 03/27/2013 10:45:06 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, issued some words of advice for fellow GOPers: Get in the 21st century with same-sex-marriage issues.
We do have a platform, and we adhere to that platform, Mr. Priebus said in a USA Today video. But it doesnt mean that we divide and subtract people from our party who favor gay marriage.
I dont believe we need to act like Old Testament heretics, he said in the USA Today video. Rather, Republicans have to strike a balance between principle and grace and respect.
His statements come as the U.S. Supreme Court is due to hear two cases on gay marriage one on a California-voted ban on same-sex marriage, and the other on the legalities of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which bans the federal government from giving marriage benefits to same-sex couples.
His statements also come at a time when politicians from both sides of the political aisle are renouncing their past objections to gay marriage. On the Republican side, Sen. Rob Portman an Ohio conservative with traditional values just flipped on gay marriage, in part, he said, because of the recent revelations of homosexuality by one of his sons.

Jim, your economy of expression is pure poetry...I think you just coined a new meme.
April should be “Exodus from GOP” month.
and anyone expected differently from the Vichy Poop Republicans?
doesn’t matter if its a losing cause, it is still the right thing to do to fight the perverting of America
This is a development the major conservative talkie (radio talk show hosts) have yet to even mention....
When the democrats decided to remove God or any reference to Our Creator at their 2012 convention. They also demonstrated they are no longer the democratic party of your fathers father. They have become a hyphenated radical unit and should be known as Demo-Coms dedicated to the establishment of a collective idealism using the device of PCP to modify behavior and shed beliefs that they believe would impede remaking their concept of the perfect utopian state. That is hardly democratic because the word democrat idealizes the individual voice.
But Rove, GOPES (GOP Elite Snobs) and RINOS lack the capacity or the understanding or the courage to point to the historic radicalization that occured at that moment and use it politically. Worse yet they are unable to forthrightly defend what the demo-coms have set out to destroy and some are even comming up with their own version of PCP . Anyone preaching PCP is going down the poisonous road to oblivion . Following a policy of PCP. Politically Correct Politics which the hyphenated democrat party, the Demo-Coms,is using is flat out wrong.Worse yet moral questions such as marriage, sexual practices, family constituency and particularly beliefs those of containing Judeo Christian tenets are being assulted and not defended. That offers a majority of voters no choice in the direction this country is to take.
PCP when used by the Demo-Coms such terms as: Afro-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American, White-American, Rich-American ,Gay-American, are more than simply nouns but vehicles used to separate US from each other. Beside separating US from our money the Demo-Coms demand we become adhearents to a system without the constituional constraints on government. Thus surrendering our protections from governmental abuses and excessive bureacracy to the will of a bureaucratic collective which is no longer answerable to the average citizen.
Sadly for the Republicans God remains in Limbo
Yeah, because everyone knows the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament are two different guys. It says so in Rev. 20.
If this fellow is not removed from the next campaign soon, he will help assure it is a loser like the last one.
1. The majority of Americans, when they are permitted to vote, are almost always against “gay marriage”
2. It is not, or it should not be, the R party’s role in life to just ask “how high” when the D party leadership says, “JUMP!”
3. That’s especially problematical now that the D party leadership has been usurped by a small extremist element not supported by the majority of the D party membership (yes, they vote...but when polled on policies they do not agree with much of what this “progressive” or communistic element is pushing -— nor do they support the subversise (anti-American, anti-Judeo/Christian, anti-Western Values being pushed on the country by these “haters” ...)
4. He also displays a mistaken religious sensibility and/or knowledge. Jesus did not come to replace or cancel God’s Law, indeed he expressly so states. His moral teachings are fully consistent with those of his scriptures, those that he read, recited, and taught (and which are really better called the “Hebrew scriptures” rather than the “old testament”), and ...the “new testament” (or Greek scriptures) provide direct teachings that are at least consistent with those he mentions, such as in 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy. At the very least I’d suggest that R party officials avoid careless, or for that matter, any Biblical allusions unless they check them out carefully first. We need only look as far as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to see what can happen when a person without genuine Christian or Biblical knowledge tries to “use the Bible” to implement his particular political agenda.
All my best,
fhc (ps: Portman was never my idea of a good R candidate anyway)
Thanks. It’s out of an old song. To know, know, know him is to FReep, FReep, FReep him. And I do and I do and I do.
FReep U, Reince Priebus!
Romans chapter 1 is in the New Testament.
The “gay” agenda is all about destroying religious freedom. They’d love nothing better than to burn the bible as a “hate” book and make it a crime to speak out about their perverted life styles, er, death styles.
The Republican Party is dead. Aside from a handful of congress critters it is done.
A new party should have been up and running full by speed now.
I say racist because he’s targeting the Bible belt- the whites mostly.
Wouldn’t you love to know who is giving him these talking points..Jeb...focus groups in the Northeast?? They will never get a penny from me as long as they do this..they call all of the time pleading for money because I had donated to them for many years along with volunteering... many hours and helping them in so many ways. Days I was sick, I helped them. How dare that little man and the media tell that me they know I am a bigot. He has no damn clue about many of us. Might blow his mind if really knew.
Prince Reibus, I really have no use for you or your gutless party.
He is the “heretic” or the unbeliever, either way, lets not cast our pearls before swine!
Proof that the Apostle Paul was Godly inspired with the undeniable truth found in Galatians 5:9 - “A little leaven, leavens the entire lump”.
This nation is about fully leavened - and the political ruling class of the GOP prove that they too can be leavened with the sin of Sodom. And now they dictate to those who follow God to compromise with sin for the sake of political expedience because in their minds - we dare not go against the tide that leavens the culture with abominations.
Sexuality is no basis upon which political power can be shared. Any attempt to do so will simply result in overwhelming dysfunction and the loss of civil society
and mutual kindness.
There is a relationship between creating life and bringing children into the world, to forming a family container to raise them properly to eventually take their place in civil society. Creating such life is one of the few devine acts allowed to human beings.It forms the nucleus of civil society. It is this nucleus which any political power based on sexuality seeks to destroy.
Only fools would allow such destruction. Anyone seeking political power based on sexuality should realize that the Constitution does not provide for such political power. Political power is limited to citizenship in the United States of America, political power does not originate in sexuality of any sort. Sexuality is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. It is an a-sexual document.
So when Reince Priebus coins the lie : I dont believe we need to act like Old Testament heretics, and that Republicans have to strike a balance between principle and grace and respect. This idiot completely fails on two counts:
Reince Priebus best read the Word of God in Romans and get his heretic soul our of Hell:
Romans 1:24: Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Romans 1:25: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Romans 1:26: For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:27: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:28: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Romans 1:29: Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Romans 1:30: Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Romans 1:31: Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Romans 1:32: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
