Mary Helen Sears is the vice-chair of the Republican party for the 1st congressional district of Michigan. She’s also a candidate to be Michigan’s representative on the Republican National Committee. A few months ago she wrote a column for the county Republican website that amusingly begins this way:

Translation: What follows is some major league bullshit, but we still want to publish it.
We find ourselves at a precipice, wide and gaping, its darkness, seemingly never-ending. We have a choice to make. Do we follow the Truth of the Living God, who’s principles and teachings are the foundation of this country or do we follow the dictates of a depraved society and fall headlong, off the cliff, into the abyss below? For too long the GOP has misinterpreted the big tent idea of Ronald Regan. Raising the flaps higher and higher in an effort to retain power, not realizing by doing so they were destroying the very fabric the tent was created out of.
A tent by its very nature is inclusive and exclusive. There are things the tent owner will allow in and others he will fight to the death to keep out.
The GOP is not the tent owner, it is the tent. Our party, like our boarder states have accepted the slow creep of intrusion until they are confused as to where their boarders truly lies. The voting members of the GOP are the tent owners. It is they who decides what the party stands for and what it stands against or what it lets into its tent and what it keeps out. With this idea in mind, we must ask ourselves, “How do we determine our belief system?”
My argument is that, we cannot put our finger to the wind, determine the sway of the people and try to ride the current trend to keep power. Who in the end does that serve? You must look at political party philosophy. Why do we have political parties? George Washington warned against them when he said, ” I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State…Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally. This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.”His words ring true louder today than they have in the history of the United States.
Wait…you’re quoting George Washington on the evils of political parties and their danger to the country in a column about how to save the Republican party? Bravissimo!
Looking at our history we see that the party was built around a set of ideas agreed upon by the party members. The tent owners had made the first tent. The fabric of that tent was built on the idea that, “All men are CREATED equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights…”
Yeah, all the focus on “created” while ignoring “equal.” Sounds like the Republican party to me.
Where would they ever get a notion that all men are CREATED equal? You will certainly not find that in Darwin’s view of the world, which is being taught to our gullible children. His view gave rise to Hitler’s Third Reich, Mussolini’s Italy and Stalin’s Russia.
Speaking of gullible children…
Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman. It is a reflection of God and his Church. The promise that when this horror show we call life is over, we will once again be reunited with the God of this Universe. The joining of two men or two women is a perversion of this Covenant and a direct affront to God. Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit, which is the body of the person.
Is marriage still a “reflection of God and his church” when it involves people who don’t believe in God? Or who believe in the wrong God? Seems an obvious question. She apparently doesn’t realize that about 3/4 of the planet is not Christian.
God says of homosexuality:
” Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” Leviticus 20:13
Well thanks for making your violent and fascist views crystal clear. I suspect you’ll be very welcome on the Republican National Committee.
