Gary DeMar: Homosexuality is a ‘grave evil’ akin to pedophilia, murder, slavery

BRIAN TASHMAN | Right Wing Watch
Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Gary DeMar of American Vision, a Christian Reconstructionist group, is out with two new columns attacking Hillary Clinton and Rob Portman for endorsing marriage equality.

Gary DeMar

On Tuesday, DeMar warned that marriage rights for same-sex couples would eventually mean that parents would have no legal recourse to stop pedophiles from molesting their children.

Is Hillary saying that full citizenship requires that people be able to marry anybody they want?

Does this mean that a father can marry his 17-year-old daughter or son? Will laws prohibiting incestuous marriages be considered a violation of a person’s full and equal citizenship rights?

Maybe not now, but who can say what will be permitted in 10 or 20 years?

I’m sure that people who have jumped ship to embrace pro-homosexual marriage have not thought through the consequences of their decisions, especially young people who are almost always in an affirming mood. The day will come when they will have children, and there won’t be a thing they will be able to do to stop predators from taking advantage of their children because “it will be against the law to discriminate.”

In a Saturday column DeMar called homosexuality a “grave evil” and a “bad moral choice,” and went on to compare supporting a gay son to helping a son who is a pedophile, drug dealer, murderer or slave-owner.

Are there no longer any moral standards? If Senator Rob Portman’s son wants to live and love another man, no one’s stopping him. But to overthrow the moral order of the universe by having the State sanction homosexuality is a grave evil.

No one is denied love. I love all kinds of people, but it’s a moral evil to believe that love necessitates sexual relations. Once you go down this road, there’s no way to stop.

Would Senator Rob Portman throw his support behind pedophilia if he had learned that his son was a pedophile? There are young pedophiles out there. Would he support adultery if his son was an adulterer? Would he support slavery if he found out that one of his relatives was a slave owner and argued persuasively that owning slaves was legitimate? Would the Senator Rob Portman support his son if he learned that he was selling drugs to children? Would he support contract killing if he learned that his son was a contract killer for the mob?

Senator Rob Portman’s son has made a bad moral choice. There is no need to compound that bad moral choice by capitulating to it and softening the moral barriers for young men and women who are struggling with their sexuality and helping to pass laws that will affect millions of people.

[...]

As parents, we set standards for our children to live by. When our children rebelled against those standards when they were growing up with us, there were supposed to be consequences. It did not matter how our children felt when they did something wrong. Beating up the neighbor kid because “I felt like it” or “I couldn’t help myself” were not proper moral responses.

  1. Sucks to be so damn closed minded.

  2. I love the line of logic here, as soon as a man/woman fucks another man/woman. He/she will instantly want to enslave everyone, rape their children, and kill their lovers.

  3. And this is why I wrote my novel, OUT. People need to know that this STILL happens and that people are still proposing reconditioning as something that is useful….which is crazy and wrong and should be illegal, in my opinion.

  4. Don’t ever tell these buffoons that Lev 16:22 is not about gay sex, but about keeping the Jewish religion pure from the practices of the groups living around them. Would ruin their whole day.

  11. I love when people quote Lev but go speechless when I ask about another passage of it that condemns eating of shellfish and many other such items…I think it just pisses them off that WE (those they oppose that GOD supposedly hates) knows more about their religions (since well they are many of ours as well) than they do…But hey if we can pick and choose what parts of laws we follow I would like to do away with speeding tickets and taxes OK THANKS

  12. As a survivor of priest abuse, I find what he said, equating homosexuality to pedophilia disgusting. If I ever saw him in person, he would get a response from me that would make his piss his granny panties and go cry to his god.

  26. By his argument, we should limit religious freedom due to faith-based terrorists. This is bigotry, plain and simple.

  27. Isn’t it usually the freaks like this that turn out to have the computers full of child porn and who hire the services of meth addicted male escorts? Time will reveal his dirty little secrets.

  32. Hypocrites….

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:48pm
  33. Yes, it’s evil because it’s like the butterfly effect. The energy emitted from a single girl on girl action in America can cause a tsunami in SE Asia. I know this from personal experience. The girl action… not the tsunami…

  34. This man speaks the truth. Just this morning I got my gay self out of my bed and I molested a group of children at the bus stop, murdered their bus driver, and took the bus to the city square to buy a slave. Slippery slope, indeed! Damn they found our agenda… better send out a mass memo!

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:53pm
  35. Wow…ok..that’s a little extreme. Change your meds dude…
    Wanna talk about “gay” marriage?…Gay marriage is just MARRIAGE. just like mine, just like yours. It’s two people who live, love, and are committed to each other. They are just people, at the end of the day..they are just people…get over it. “Same sex” marriage? I got news for you…after you are married… it’s all the “same sex”…because “sex” is an activity NOT an identity.
    Oh and btw…look it up “gay” means happy…if your marriage isn’t “gay” get divorced or fix it cause there is something wrong with it.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:55pm
  36. Some times, I can’t help but think if they get paid to tell this because no one can possibly be this stupid.

    Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:56pm
  37. But yet the Republican “Christians” used to support slavery and a lot of pedophilia happens in Christian churches. Typical ignorant hypocrite using scare tactics.

  54. I find it stupidly funny that these “religious specialists” think they know what they’re talking about without actually knowing history behind their religion.

    Jewish people were before Christians, you twerp. Leviticus was written to protect the Jewish people from surrounding civilization.

    *throws a history book*
