Robert R. Reilly, a former Bush administration official, has a new book out that rails against homosexuality and how gay rights is sending America to hell in a handbasket. He went on Janet Mefferd’s radio show to promote the book and explained that murderers were better than gay people because at least they feel bad about it:
After the person murders someone or looks at pornography, they come to see that what they did was actually wrong, they can’t excuse it and moral order is restored and they’re contrite for having done so. But what if you organize your life around something that is wrong? Then you must construct a more permanent rationalization that prevents your conscience from returning to tell you that you’ve just done something profoundly wrong.
This is exactly the case with active homosexuals, now extended to homosexual marriage, where they have to say that wrong is right and not only is it right but it’s normative, morally normative, so we need to teach it, we need to bless it in marriages, we need to ordain it in churches and we need to enforce it in our laws. And that is what is happening.
