Ohio Republican Sen. Rob
Portman reveals son is gay,
flips to support gay marriage

New York Daily News, by Dan Hirschhorn

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/15/2013 9:07:45 AM

A top Republican senator has come out in support of same-sex marriage, in a shocking reversal that also reveals his son is gay. Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, who was a finalist to be Mitt Romney´s running mate last year, said he wants "all of my children" to benefit from marriage like he has. "I´ve come to the conclusion that for me, personally, I think this is something that we should allow people to do," Portman told CNN in an interview released Friday. "To get married, and to have the joy and stability of marriage that I´ve had

So much for core belief, Rob.
If one of us discovered our daughter was an armed robber, we´d be all for robbery too, right?
If we discovered our son was an aldulterer, we´d be all for open marriage, right?
Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not covet they neighbor´s wife..those are just suggestions, not commandments, right Rob.

Gays can do what they want, but marriage is one man + one woman. Anything else is more lib magical thinking.

"marriage (noun) circa 1300, ´act of marrying, entry into wedlock;´ also ´state or condition of being husband and wife´;"

It´s not about the Adults "benefitting from marriage"

It should be about the children. They should "benefit from marriage."

And so is revealed the horrible self-centeredness of the homosexual Adult´s attitude and behavior. (and fools who follow, such as suddenly-genius Portman)

First Gov Kasich flip flops on Obamacare now Sen Portman flip flops on gay marriage...no wonder so many conservatives are disappointed in OH.

As one, I have made plans to leave the state and head further south where the sun shines Red.

We can´t change wrong to right just because a son or daughter lives contrary to the commandments of God. If my son was a drug dealer it is still wrong to screw up lives of others by selling drugs. Portman loves his son but lots of sons are involved in sexual activities that are out of bounds--and I include all sexual relations in that mix. Principles do not change based on who violates them. Sorry gov, you are an idiot.

Typical. He might as well have a sex change and rename himself Diane Feinstein. He is no longer representing his constituents but making emotional decisions based on his personal ´feelings´. Just exactly what is wrong with our elected losers. Marriage isn´t a goobernment function. It was an institution long before this country was even a distance shore for intrepid Argonauts. Marriage is about procreation, not loving sexual relationships. Marriage is an institution that has shown to be a successful instrument to procreate and raise children. Marriage would occur without goobernment just as homosexual relationships occur with goobernment. But homosexual marriage is the antitheist of the foundation for this country.

So if his son also decided to become a Satanist, I guess he would be fully supportive of that move too?????

You have values or you don´t. The Republican Party stopped being the party of conservative values a long time ago, and is in it´s final death wallow. When we loose the House in 2014, the Republicans will be just a note in the history books.

As evil and immoral as their values are, the Demon-RATS at least do stay true to them. In these uncertain times, too many idiot voters are looking for certainty. It´s too bad that they can´t find that in a conservative party...

It shows a sign of weakness. It´s one thing to support your son/daughter if they tell you they´re gay but it´s another to go against core beliefs of the Republican Party.

FTA: "I think this is something that we should allow people to do,"
Where in the constitution does it give the federal government the authority to allow or disallow anything to do with marriage? Thats the problem. We condemn the communists for pushing their social agenda on us, but then we try to do the same thing.

This only shows how flimsey was Mr. Portman beliefs. If any one of my children was different in any way, I would still hold fast to my belief that somethings are just not in the interest of general society. Of course, I would hope that that child would still conduct his/herself in such a way that would support civil society.

#14 hits it on the button. Civil unions will give them all the perks that marriage does. They could include all sorts of contracts between themselves stating how they will deal with finances, sickness, wills, etc. The homosexual crowd wants marriage because it hints that God approves and other people will be more accepting of their perversion of nature. I give points to the Sen for accepting his son, but that does not give him the right to legitimatize homosexual marriage. I hope he enjoys his adopted or suragated grandchildren.

Why does accepting your son as gay have anything to do with supporting gay marriage? Gay marriage does not do anything but demean the meaning of marriage which was originally about two heterosexuals staying together to raise the children they produce. Marriage is already degraded enough that we have half the children raised in single parent households. Gay marriage is just pilling on more damage to an already seriously threatened institution.

Why do we need the government to "bless" our union with a piece of paper? I know of two senior citizen couples who have taken public vows as man and wife but have forgone the government paperwork. In my eyes they are married. I also believe in God´s eyes they are married. Did Adam and Eve have a marriage certificate?

So get the ´state´ out of marriage. Marriage is a covenant between two people - regarding which, the government should have little to no interest in. Let marriages be performed by the church of your choice and be done with it. I really don´t see why government is involved anyway because it doesn´t care if one guy knocks-up 50 different women and, it doesn´t care if a marriage is dissolved. What is marriage if its not an agreement between two people to share their lives together. Gays can call themselves married if they want now - who´ll say otherwise?

The leftists are so out in front of the game it´s like there are two different races. ´Marriage´ today has very little to do with children, as an institution, or as commitment. The majority of people will just look confused if you try to talk about it in those terms. It´s about falling in love and having a party. If you are against gay marriage, you want to keep two people who love each other apart because you are hateful and a closet homosexual. Bringing up civil unions doesn´t do anything because it´s comparatively minor. People get married, they don´t get civil unioned. The left owns the media, they define the language, and it´s all over folks.

"My son is a devil worshipper, so I am proposing tax breaks for temples to the devil."

Where does such convoluted logic end? Hate the sin, love the sinner. I would not hate any of my children if they told me they were gay, but it would not make me approve of the homsexual lifestyle either.

While I do believe "gay" is real, and not just a lifestyle choice, I do think civil unions are the way to deal with the issue of marriage. Civil unions provide the legal frameworks and basis of a loving commitment gays seek. But a "marriage" means that the public at large must accept this as well, without regard to personal agreement or fealty to one´s religious tenets. So, an adoption agency may be sued for refusing to allow gay adoptions, or perhaps a church lose it´s tax-exempt status for not allowing a gay wedding. In this, IMHO, gays are overstepping and over reaching in their demands for not tolerance, even beyond acceptance, but into full on participation.

A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on "white privilege" with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in "ethnic studies." At one point he introduced an argument by saying, "If whites are 80 percent of the population...," which prompted me to interject and point out that whites (non-Hispanic) are now only 63 percent of America. Of course, you might think that someone with a doctorate in "ethnic studies" would know what the ethnic and racial composition of the country is.

President Obama’s remark that “We’ve got close to seven million Americans who have access to health care for the first time because of Medicaid expansion” achieved the dubious assessment of Four Pinocchios from "The Fact Checker" (a.k.a.

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed. "....And this is all about hate.

It’s hard to understand exactly why Susan Rice is still refusing to admit fault about her lies about the Benghazi attack. When asked this morning on Meet the Press by David Gregory whether she had any regrets about appearing on four network news shows the Sunday after the 9/11/12 attacks that took the lives of four Americans and telling the nation that what happened was the result of a demonstration against a video, Rice said she had none: David, no. Because what I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine. The Putin government has shown no outward signs

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps. Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson. In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism. “If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why

Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman is pushing for legislation that would ban openly gay athletes from the National Football League, spurred on by the recent news about Michael Sam publicly coming out. He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or

Robert F Kennedy Jr. has spoken out in defense of his beleaguered sister as her trial for driving under the influence of drugs begins in White Plains, New York, on Monday.

I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice. I wanted to speak with a gay-rights group that I had researched and admired, so I called its local Honolulu branch.The office number turned out to be some guy’s cell phone. I left him a message—I said, “I’m from out of town, I’m visiting Hawaii on business, I’d like to get some information on your group.” After two or three more calls, he answered the phone. I said, “Yeah, I’m the guy that called about your organization.” And he said, somewhat impatiently, “Okay, well, what did you want?” I said, “Well, let me put it to you this way, Nick.
