RNC’s Priebus Sees Heresy in Defending DOMA

Reince PriebusThe 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.

    It is amazing that Republican leaders (?) and spokesmen are running fast to embrace the destruction of traditional marriage. Karl Rove is using similar talking points. http://www.rightsidesd.com/?p=13838
    The Republican party already tolerates/embraces candidates who are not strong defenders of the unborn. Let’s hope this is not one more step in a direction to “sanitize” the party by removing Christian principles. I am not optimistic, given this recent rhetoric.

      It is disturbing that the Pennington County Republican Party is celebrating Priebus as the speaker for their Lincon Day Dinner. They should be demanding an appology for his remarks (at the very least) or cancel him as their speaker. Frankly, if they are serious about unity, this looks like another terrible choice.
