FRC: The GOP Is Selling Out Evangelicals On Marriage

Another one who thinks his religion’s doctrines should be the laws of the country.   We are not a theocracy yet.   He doesn’t get to set the definitions of marriage for others.  I am so sick of these religious fanatics.   Notice he claims the court was activist when they grant rights but not activist when they remove them, like ending Roe.    Hugs

Via email from hate group leader Tony Perkins:

Never underestimate the Republican Party’s ability to self-destruct. That’s the one thing years of cultural battles have taught everyone.

Heading into November with the elections on a silver platter, the men and women who rebranded themselves as the forces of anti-wokeness have suddenly gone soft on an issue that should be a political no-brainer: marriage.

After seven years of letting the court take the heat for redefining history’s oldest institution, a surprising number of Republicans are making a fatal mistake — believing they can win back Congress by sounding just as radical as the party set to lose it.

If the GOP’s defectors are making a political calculus, it’s a terrible one. Conservatives who abandon marriage are only endearing themselves to two sets of people: radical Democrats who would never vote for them anyway, and moderates from both parties who wouldn’t make marriage the deciding factor of any vote.

Who they stand to lose, on the other hand, is far more significant this November. Not only do they risk suppressing their evangelical base, but also other Americans who: a) see same-sex marriage as the gateway drug to all of the transgender, LGBT, sex-ed chaos we’re experiencing in society; b) don’t believe an activist court should usurp the democratic process; and; c) disgruntled Democrats who thought the Republican Party would be the counterweight to the Left’s extremism.

They slobbered over a thrice married adulterer among others so fuck off about how marriage is sacred.

Yes, Marriage is sacred, and Melanoma was the classiest first lady the country ever had.

Marriage doesn’t belong to evangelicals, Tony. If you don’t support or agree with same-sex marriage, that’s your prerogative. But understand this — your chosen religious beliefs don’t give you the right to tell me that my 33+ year relationship to my husband isn’t as important as yours, or shouldn’t be allowed.

Why should the fucking evangelicals get to decide who gets to be married.
I just looked this up on Pew research.
22.5% consider themselves to be evangelical. That is the same percentage as the Nones/No religion.

Unfortunately, the Nones don’t have a wealthy powerful (and noisy) organization to back them up. And if they did, they would not be Nones anymore.

On NPR I just heard some ignorant asshole’s voicemail comment that he didn’t think there needed to be any federal legislation to protect same sex marriage because you didn’t need to go to a church to get married.

Perhaps he wasn’t a dumbfuck but rather an evil bastard who was trying to throw some false shit out there to try to hold back support for the vote by giving idiots some dumb excuse not to support it.

An activist court is usurping the democratic process.

Surprised to see him complaining about Thomas, Coney Barrett et al.

>>> Not only do they risk suppressing their evangelical base, but also other Americans who: a) see same-sex marriage as the gateway drug to all of the transgender, LGBT, sex-ed chaos we’re experiencing in society;

What the FUCK does this mean??? Gateway drug? Do they think we get married before the whole gay thing kicks in?

He still believes God is going to give the Republicans a landslide in 2022, boy, is he going to be surprised.

If they eek out a meagre win after all the roadblocks and tricks they put up to rig the vote……theyll still call it a mandate.

According to the 2020 US Census, only 23% of Americans are Evangelical. Why should 77% of Americans be subjected to their cult, their rules, & their gawd? Furthermore, they lost all moral authority when they made the very epitome of their anti-Christ their new orange messiah.

They can go burn with their loser conman.

Americans who “b) don’t believe an activist court should usurp the democratic process,” Tony? You mean like the Supreme Court did with Dobbs? But I thought you liked that one.

  1. nobody should gets to decide WHO should marry whom, because it’s our choices in who we love, and the government should NOT have a say in whether or not our marriages are considered as “constitutional”…

    1. Hello taurusingemini. I agree. It seems wrong to me that the rights of the minority get voted on or given / taken away by the majority. The government should stay out of the affairs of consenting adults that cause no harm to those not involved. Hugs
