Stephanie Mencimer: Anti-Christian/Pro-Sodomy Activist Welcome at Mother Jones?


Recently I came across a little-read Mother Jones article about my speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last Febuary. During my speech I condemned the organizers of CPAC (Re: Lisa De Pasquale and David Keene) for allowing an anti-Christian/pro-sodomy organization called "GOProud" to attend despite the fact that they are not conservative. The organization is led by Grover Norquist of American's for Tax Reform and Jimmy LeSalvia.

The Mother Jones hit piece posing as an article is insolent and cheeky. Written by journo-activist Stephanie Mencimer, the article begins with a misquote:

"He (Ryan Sorba) made some incoherrant comments about how civil rights -is- grounded in natural rights."

Here, Miss Mencimer trades my "are" for an "is" in a feeble attempt to make my statement read as though it were "incoherrant." But Mencimer's typo aside, was my statement "incoherrant?" Really?

First of all, civil rights are grounded in natural rights. If you don't believe me, just ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He'll tell it to you in black and white script in his Letter from a Bermingham Jail. Dr. King writes that:

"An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law..."

There you have it, Miss Mencimer. Now, allow me to repeat what I said and set the record straight (no pun intended).

"Civil rights are grounded in natural rights. Natural rights are grounded in human nature. Human nature is a rational substance in relationship. The intelligible (aka rational) end of the reproductive act is reproduction..." The secondary end of the reproductive act is spousal unity in the interest of the twenty year process of education required by the child produced. Together, reproduction and unity in the interest of education comrise the essence of marriage.
Advocates of the GOProud Agenda would have us base the essence of marriage on "mutual affection and commitment." This may sound good at first but basing marriage on affection and commitment would allow anyone to marry! Just think, if grandpa and grandson share affection and commitment they could be married! So could brother and sister. Based on the "gay" version of the essence of marriage one thousand people could be married, provided that they all share mutual affection and commitment to each other and there is no principle in the left-wing version of the essence of marriage that would allow us to reasonably restrict it. This is rediculous on its face. Shame on Mother Jones, GOProud, and the euphemistically titled grandaddy of em all, the "Human 'Rights' Campaign" for promoting such intellectual non-sense. You all get an "F" in logic, as far as I'm concerned.

This, Miss Mencimore, is not "incoherrant." Your article for Mother Jones is third-grade, "incoherrant," and to be honest, offensive. Please refrain from using chicanary and lies in your next piece. It doesn't look good on you. Please also send Mother Jones herself the following personal message for me, will you?


Dear Mother Jones,

Enough with the pop up ads already! Rediculous.

All the best,

Ryan
