Here's the Senator's response -- one that every Christian can appreciate.
PLAINS TOWNSHIP — U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, who has likened homosexuality to incest, bigamy and polygamy, said Monday that an openly homosexual member of his staff is “a trusted employee” who will continue to “have my confidence.”Read the story here.
During a visit to the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Mr. Santorum said there’s no contradiction between his criticism of homosexuality as a lifestyle and his employment of the gay staff member, director of communications Robert L. Traynham.
“I think it squares very clearly with my public positions on every other issue, which is that I treat people fairly, I treat people equally, I treat people with dignity and respect, and irrespective of what they may or may not do outside of work,” said Mr. Santorum, R-Penn Hills.
“Senator Santorum is a man of principle, he is a man who sticks up for what he believes in, I strongly do support Sen. Santorum,” Mr. Traynham [the outed staffer] told PageOneQ [the mag that first ran the story].
Mr. Santorum called the publicity about Mr. Traynham’s sexual orientation “bigoted and mean-spirited.”
He's right, you know. Many on the left just cannot get their minds around the conservative Christian mantra, "love the sinner, hate the sin." They see it as arrant hypocrisy rather than the loving, forgiving principle it is.
