Robert O'Brien Nominee: Rick Santorum

Robert O'Brien Nominee: Rick Santorum September 8, 2011

Look at this gem from an interview with Piers Morgan:

SANTORUM: I think just because we disagree on public policy, which is what the debate has been about — which is marriage — doesn’t mean that it’s bigotry. Just because you follow a moral code that teaches that something’s wrong doesn’t mean that — are you suggesting that the Bible and that the Catholic Church is bigoted? If that’s what you believe, fine. […] Well, I shouldn’t say — not fine. I don’t think it’s fine at all. I think that is contrary to both what we’ve seen in 2,000 years of human history and Western civilization, and trying to redefine something that has been — that is — seen as wrong…I think is in itself an act of bigotry.

I’m not suggesting that the Bible and the Catholic Church are bigoted, I’m bluntly declaring it. For crying out loud, how many pogroms has the Catholic Church declared in its history? He doesn’t even know the history of his own church.

Is the Bible bigoted? It says that gay people should be stoned to death. If that isn’t bigoted, what on earth possibly could be? The only argument one can make in response to that is to say that God is the one who said it. Well fine. Even if that’s true, it doesn’t mean the Bible isn’t bigoted — it just means God is a bigot. It means that God created gay people only to want them put to death.

And ironically, the ones today who most want to see that commandment put into practice are Calvinist Reconstructionists, who can’t argue with that logic because they believe in predestination. The only thing they can do is agree that, yes, God created people for the sole purpose of seeing them stoned to death or, failing that, sending them to hell to burn for all eternity for doing exactly what he created them to do.
