Romney Forgot that God Hates Gay People

Aside from the fact that he is a misogynist who likes to tweet his disgust for women, Romney’s new foreign affairs spokesman has another tiny little problem:

Gov. Mitt Romney stepped on a landmine by appointing Richard Grenell, an out, loud and proud homosexual, to be his spokesman on national security and foreign policy issues. Grenell has for years been an outspoken advocate for homosexual marriage. In fact, word is that he left the Bush administration because President Bush would not formally acknowledge his homosexual partner.

Since, as the saying goes in D.C., personnel is policy, this means Gov. Romney has some ‘splaining to do. This clearly is a deliberate and intentional act on his part, since he was well aware of Mr. Grenell’s sexual proclivities and knew it would be problematic for social conservatives. It’s certainly not possible that there are no other potential spokesmen available, men who are experts in foreign policy and who at the same time honor the institution of natural marriage in their personal lives.

So this has all the appearances of a deliberate poke in the eye to the pro-family community, and a clumsy one at that, coming right on the heels of endorsements from Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention, Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas and the National Organization for Marriage, and right after the governor accepted an invitation to deliver the commencement address at Liberty University.

Fischer lets on more than he intends to, here, and lets his bigotry freak flag fly loud and proud. Normally, these guys spew some nonsense about “hating the sin and loving the sinner” and at least try to pretend it’s about policy issues. But here, we’ve got a gay man who will not be addressing same sex marriage or gay issues whatsoever, but working on foreign affairs issues, and for Bryan Fischer and company, the simple fact that he is gay disqualifies him for service.

The difference between these “respectable” bigots and Fred Phelps is that at least Fred Phelps has the balls to carry signs saying what he really thinks:

The rest of the evangelical community that Fischer represents doesn’t have that kind of courage.

    Also too, Fischer poses incoherent questions:

    For starters, he can answer one question for the American people: “Gov. Romney, is homosexual behavior healthy or harmful? Yes or no?”

    I still have some hope, albeit faint, that the wingers will be so disgusted with Romney’s etch-a-sketch moves that finally they’ll stay home and let us take the downticket races. It probably would require them to believe that they can’t win anyway and with this media, that’s doubtful, but it remains a possibility.

    Got an email last night from my winger friend who still believes Newt can win. She detests Romney.

    So.
    Maybe.

    This story seems off to me, John. Shouldn’t we be at least mildly pleased that Romney made this decision? Sure, there are all sorts of jackals who want to tear Romney a new one for his choice, but we know only too well what they are like. I think it would be more noteworthy if Romney decided to dump this guy based on all the blowback he is now facing. But till then, I will credit the guy for his choice (and believe me, I am very reluctant to type that).

    So whatever else this may be, since Romney clearly knew who he was hiring, isn’t this also a clear signal to us Friends of Toto that he is cool with the gays after all? That the recent ugliness during the primaries was just doin’ what had to be done? Didn’t mean anything?

    Hey, it’s politics! Obama supporters can certainly understand the necessity of saying one thing and doing another, right?

    ET says:

    Is Grenell Romney’s attempt to move to the center and represent that Etch-a-Sketch comment? Like you said he had to have known Grenell is gay because it doesn’t seem to have been a secret so he either didn’t care what impact pro/con it would have, didn’t think it would have any impact, or did it looking to send some sort of message.

    I am not sure why Grenell would take this job. I know this is foreign policy and not domestic but still. He has either been assured or convinced himself that Romney really doesn’t hate gay people. Of course when the shit storm happens hope he holds on and is wearing hip-waders.

    While much of America won’t give two hoots, it is the base Romney is (still) chasing that will care and he has problems with them already. Maybe he figures many in the GOP base will vote for him anyway no matter what they say now, because they will be more scared of Obama being re-elected. Whether that is a safe assumption I don’t know. If I were him I would be worried about people not showing up to vote at all.

    This Grenell guy just seems like a flat-out nasty piece of work. I guess it’s okay if people want to give Romney credit for picking an out gay man, but look, if John Bolton were gay would you have been any more enthused about Bush nominating him? If Romney named Allen West, Marco Rubio, and John Yoo as advisors, would anyone feel like applauding his commitment to diversity? I really couldn’t care less that the guy is gay, what I care about is that he appears to be a hawkish asshole.

    Ash Can says:

    Awesome. The right wing detests Grenell because he’s gay. Everyone else detests him because he’s a mendacious, misogynistic schmuck. Romney’s probably on his sixth or seventh pair of britches trying to figure out how to handle the blowback. Comedy gold.

    @mainmati: OK. I am more than willing to concede that this guy is a total jackass. What I found curious is that John decided to bring up all the virulently anti-gay freaks and their foaming-at-the-mouth opposition to this guy. As a contribution to the dynamics between Romney and his supporters and maybe-supporters, this is indeed a weird pick and I will just sit back and eat popcorn as I watch these guys kill time, money, energy, and their bodies and minds bitching about Romney’s choice. We can be grateful that this kind of thing has no analogue in Democratic politics. We waste our energies on other things, but not foaming at the mouth about teh ghey.

    I guess my confusion about John’s point is this: of course Romney is going to be shot at, hard, for his choice. Bigots gonna bigot, after all. Nothing new here. The title suggests that this is about Romney, but it’s really about his base.

    And the worst kept secret in D.C. is that the Republican Party has a veritable army of gay men working as staffers on Capitol Hill. Fischer either doesn’t know this, and thus has no right to offer advice to any national politician on matters of personnel, or he’s feigning ignorance for his mongrel-idiot readers, in which case he’s just another pathetic Liar for Christ.

    @PurpleGirl:

    The only reason the Southern Baptist Convention exists is because of their imperative in defending slavery and segregation for a century and a half. The decent thing to do in the wake of the collapse of that ideology would have been to dissolve the denomination and rejoin the American Baptists rather than pass a back-tracking “resolution.” When their core value became impossible to defend, they got slippery and have had to satisfy themselves with bigotry against women, against gays and contempt for the poor – which is why Richard Land is the perfect spokesman for this pack of right-wing creeps. They’ve been moderately successful in using their “Baptist” credentials to recruit minority members, but they are utterly retrograde as a national denomination, and always have been – theologically and politically. Refuse to ordain women as pastors, firmly entrenched as part of the “Religious” Right and prone to purges, making it impossible for faculty at their seminaries to embrace any aspects of modernity at risk of being “outed” as heretics and fired. The egregious Richard Land typifies their values. Plagiarism is the least of his “sins.”

  65. 65
    Mnemosyne says:

    Also, too — at certain points in European history, it wasn’t that unusual for gay men to be higher up in the hierarchy than women, especially if they were in the clergy. So, yes, there are still men out there like Grenell who long for a return to the good ol’ days when just being a pen1s owner (even a homosexual one) was enough to boost you above the entire other gender.

    Reginald Perrin says:

    “Given the propensity for members of the homosexual community to engage in frequent and anonymous sexual encounters, the risk to national security of having a homosexual in a high-ranking position with access to secret information is obvious.”

    I thought we were supposed to judge the person based on his individual actions, not membership in a group. I thought only evil liberals did the latter. So it is unfair, maybe even unChristian, to assume this fact about Mr. Grennell, solely on the basis of his membership in a group. Furthermore, he is in a committed relationship; even if it could never be a Biblical marriage in Fischer’s eyes, it is unfair to assume Grennell is unfaithful to his same-sex partner.
    However, if Mr. Fischer wishes to judge Mr. Romney by his actions, in this case hiring Mr. Grennell, then fine. If he believes that this action by Mr. Romney shows his support for gay rights, and is contrary to the teachings of an important group to which he belongs, the LDS church, then he should not offer him political and electoral support. (And let’s hope he doesn’t.) But the spite shown Mr. Grennell is not necessary to make the valid point, and reveals Fischer’s true motivation — hate alone.
    Plus, also, what is this, the ’50s?

    the perfect height trees of Michigan

    I can never let this pass without pointing out that the reason all those trees are that perfect height (and it’s true that Michigan’s trees are all notably the same height) is that Michigan was logged off in the late 19th-early 20th Centuries, and then replanted with trees by the WPA in the 1930s . . .

    The proper response to gay Republicans is to ask them if they expect a nicer bunk in the camps

    @burnspbesq:

    Yeah I would go with the “Republicans purge gays” line because I doubt anyone gives a shit about any of that

    “The REAL scandal is that on an objective measure of foreign policy experience as determined by lawyers at a party, this particular individual in question . . .” ~(entire country dies of boredom)~

    Just point out that Republicans want gays dead and don’t make this about John Bolton who had lower name recognition than Mitch Daniels this election cycle
