Ohio Republican Senator Rob Portman is now for gay marriage, because his son is gay.
Isn’t this a reversal of the natural order? Aren’t fathers supposed to tell sons what is right, not the other way around? If a son disagrees with his father, is he not supposed to be respectful of his father’s belief and not openly challenge it?
This change in family dynamics is a big way of promoting all kinds of leftism, not just homosexuality. Leftists tell children to challenge their parents, they will have the support of the system. Communists even encouraged children to report their parents to the secret police.
Weak parents will cave in, afraid of losing the affection of their children, not acting as moral teachers and examples. Portman has failed society and his son by not standing up for what is right. Portman apparently belongs to the United Methodists, a pseudo-Christian heretical group that supports homosexuality, in clear violation of Christian teaching. There is little chance Portman can persuade his son to be celibate. He still has a responsibility to tell him, “Son, I love you and always will. However you are obligated not to act on the same-sex attraction you feel. This is a matter of both Christian teaching, and if you don’t accept that, natural law. I hope you will conduct yourself with wisdom and discernment.”
Rob Portman has failed as a responsible man. He is not fit to lead his own family, much less hold any office.
