The big tent, stand for nothing, milk toast Republicans led by Reince Priebus have already launched their plan to abandon principle and ensure defeat in 2016. Priebus sees heresy in the defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and is even willing to mock God’s Word as well.
When asked by Susan Page of USA Today if he could imagine the 2016 GOP Presidential nominee supporting same-sex marriage, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee said:
“I’m not sure, you know that I can’t look through that crystal ball, but I think you see people like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul are talking about states’ rights and the Tenth Amendment. Obviously you hear a lot of that in our Party. My position is that marriage is between a man and a woman but my other position is that you treat people with dignity and respect, love and grace, and so I think they’re all compatible with each other. I don’t believe we need to act like Old Testament heretics either…”
Susan Page then asked Priebus: “What does that mean act like Old Testament heretics?”
“I think you know it when you see it. I think you have to strike a balance between principle and grace and respect and that’s what I’m just trying to do.”
I am appalled and offended by his referring to the Old Testament patriarchs as heretics! By categorizing them as heretics, Priebus is saying that the teachings of God are also heretical and wrong. Priebus wants you to compromise the Word of God for expected political gain. He is putting political aspirations ahead of biblical principles. This is what the Democrat Party has been doing for decades. It seems that Priebus wants the Republican Party to follow in their liberal footsteps.
