John Boehner: Republican Party
should support gay candidates

Politico, by Jake Sherman

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/6/2013 7:09:07 AM

Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”

"[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." --Benjamin Franklin, 1787


"The only foundation of a free Constitution, is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People, in a great Measure, than they have it now. They may change their Rulers, and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty." --John Adams, letter to Zabdiel Adams, 1776

How about this - we should run the best qualified candidates, with a solid conservative outlook, and not worry about what kind of sex they prefer, or their race, or sex, or looks. But that would make too much sense.

My fondest hope is that someday our reps and candidates will learn to reject and not argue the premises of the left, especially the leftist media, and simply promote a clear coherent conservative message of freedom, liberty and personal responsibility.

Boehner´s just doing damage control and that´s a good thing. I see no reason why we should withdraw support and/or campaign against gay candidates. A good citizen will get my vote and I do not care about his gayness or not, as long as he or she´s not marching in Gay Pride parades in full regalia.

If the gay candidate is a conservative and votes that way, and if the gay candidate is a qualified person, I agree. We are all sinners, gay or straight, but being gay shouldn´t define a person just as being heterosexual shouldn´t define a person.

If the candidate is conservative and has a conservative track record, fine.

Speaker Boner has once again used a leftist stereotype of the GOP - that we are all insensitive to the needs of others - in describing his own party´s candidates. What an idiot he is. He really needs to go. What we don´t need is more candidates like him who get weepy in front of the msm, who are in favor of amnesty, who believe obama is trustworthy and believe obbamacare is the law of the land and therefore needs to be funded and implemented. How on earth did this spineless wet noodle become Speaker of the House?

Having sexual relations with someone of the same gender is a moral abomination; a wrong. To support people who support that invites judgement and calamity. Replace gay with any other demonstrable wrong and see how ridiculous his assertions sound. For example, suppose he said we need to support candidates who are slave holders would we not care about that as long as the candidate is otherwise a "conservative"? Absurd! It demonstrates that our leadership seems to lack the moral clarity just as much as the Democrat´s leadership, which we decry so much!

Thank you #1 for the words of wisdom you quote. We should often be reminded that this is the true understanding with which our country came into being. "Pure virtue" Yes, hold to purity rather than impurity in our minds, bodies and souls. "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right , whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." (Phil 4:8)

Unfortunately we have those republicans who view this country as a global employment agency, others continue to fight to the bottom to turn our republic into a democracy, and the liberals want a socialist party rule.

Why not vote for pedophiles, rapists, embezzlers, and so on, as long as they claim to be ´conservative´ but properly understood there is nothing conservative about sinful behavior. Changing that which is created for good into the opposite is not only wrong but unnatural. I hope you share more in the future, #1

I am becoming convinced Boehner is being Blackmailed into doing STUPID things. Lets throw Christians out of the Party them compete with Democrats on the Gay vote. Real Smart Politics there. People don´t have to wear their gayness like a badge of honor while Tebow Christians need not apply.

If the candidate doesn´t make gayness an agenda for his/her campaign then I won´t make it a part of my vote.

But doesnt Boehner realize that his saying what he said results in his losing as much support as he thinks he gains?

Stop apologizing for being neutral on homosexuals!

I never thought there was anything wrong with "Don´t ask, don´t tell." But when a candidate says "I have sex with people I can´t be married to, and there´s nothing wrong with that," I draw the line. (And no, a phony "marriage" isn´t marriage. Thanks for asking.)

For some posters on this site, the GOP literally can do no wrong. Giving Obama a blank cheque to spend whatever he wants? Just doing what needs to be done. Punching the TEA party in the nose? It´s all a big misunderstanding. Calling for homosexual candidates? No problem. But try to defund Obamacare, or talk about death panels, and suddenly you´re the reason Republicans lose.

They are Republican first and conservative a distant second.

Not that there´s anything wrong with that....

A bed time story;
In the beginning...."When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Then it was posted at Lucianne and several posters went ballistic and lived happily ever after, while liberals garnered all the votes.

#21

Repentance is require for forgiveness.

There are three Greek words used in the New Testament to denote repentance. (1.) The verb _metamelomai_ is used of a change of mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse on account of sin, but not necessarily a change of heart. This word is used with reference to the repentance of Judas (Matt. 27:3). (2.) Metanoeo, meaning to change one´s mind and purpose, as the result of after knowledge. This verb, with (3) the cognate noun _metanoia_, is used of true repentance, a change of mind and purpose and life, to which remission of sin is promised. Evangelical repentance consists of (1) a true sense of one´s own guilt and sinfulness; (2) an apprehension of God´s mercy in Christ; (3) an actual hatred of sin (Ps. 119:128; Job 42:5, 6; 2 Cor. 7:10) and turning from it to God; and (4) a persistent endeavour after a holy life in a walking with God in the way of his commandments. The true penitent is conscious of guilt (Ps. 51:4, 9), of pollution (51:5, 7, 10), and of helplessness (51:11; 109:21, 22). Thus he apprehends himself to be just what God has always seen him to be and declares him to be. But repentance comprehends not only such a sense of sin, but also an apprehension of mercy, without which there can be no true repentance (Ps. 51:1; 130:4).

"Calling for homosexual candidates?"

#22, who did that? No one did, of course, but the phrase had to be forced into the rant.

Now, the criteria for considering ourselves to be a conservative has to include refusing to support for a gay anyplace, any time? Who makes up these rules?

God made up the rules, that is who. A gay can go to heaven IF he/she repents and stops sinning. You cannot live an active gay life and count on going to the great beyond. A thief, a murderer, a liar, an adulterer, a homosexual, etc etc can all go to heaven but only if they stop the sin, repent and except Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. We are all sinners and we are all held accountable. That includes gays.

Mark Foley served for 11 years in Congress. Can we make some distinctions here? No one is obligated to offer "support" to a person in public office who is trolling for underaged victims. Foley resigned when this practice was exposed.

There is a huge difference between moral misbehavior and a person who lives a quiet, respectable life but might happen to be gay.

We are really beginning to fit ourselves into the rigidly judgmental caricature that the liberals and the media have drawn for us.

One of the candidates whom Forbes wants to deny funding is Richard Tisei in Massachusetts. He´s running for congress. He´s for lower taxes, smaller government, welfare reform, and less interference by government in people´s lives. He´s against Obamacare and pro-2nd Amendment. He´s gay. He doesn´t make a big deal of it, but he´s been with the same man (also his business partner) for a few decades. They live quietly.

Do you really think a Democrat in the mold of Elizabeth Warren is preferable to him? Because that´s who his opponent will be.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base.

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is "hellbent" on passing amnesty legislation, and other GOP leaders are signaling to donors and lobbyists that they also want to pass legislation this Congress, even though attempting to do so would depress the GOP base and create divisions within the party ahead of 2014´s midterm elections that could give Republicans control of Congress. According to the Wall Street Journal, Boehner told donors at a Las Vegas fundraiser in March that he was "hellbent on getting this done this year."

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used. By another former secretary of State. In 1983, Cyrus Vance, who served as secretary of State

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions. It’s not controversial that the Secret Service and the Bureau of Prisons have them.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
