Posted on 05/01/2012 2:58:59 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Richard Grenell, an openly gay foreign policy expert hired by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, has resigned after only two weeks on the job.
In a statement obtained Tuesday by Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, Grenell said, "While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama's foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign."
Grenell also thanked Romney for not making his sexual orientation an issue when he was hired.
The Romney campaign had come under fire in some conservative circles for hiring Grenell. Writing for National Review, Matthew Franck argued that Grenell's staunch pro-gay-marriage advocacy could mean that he would pursue an agenda that elevates gay rights above religious freedom in a future Romney administration.
Grenell was also criticized for using crude language talking about women on his Twitter account. He later apologized and deleted the tweets.
Grenell had previously worked in the President George W. Bush administration for Ambassadors John Negroponte, John Danforth, John Bolton and Zalmay Khalilizad.
Two months after leaving his United Nations position in 2008, he criticized the Bush administration for not backing a United Nations declaration calling for an end to laws that discriminate against homosexuals.
In a message to Rubin, a Romney campaign spokesperson said, "We are disappointed that Ric decided to resign from the campaign for his own personal reasons. We wanted him to stay because he had superior qualifications for the position he was hired to fill."
You can NOT be moral and hold the “homosexuality/sodomy is good” worldview. Sodomy is always evil. The US Constitution is founded on Moral Absolutes—on Objective Truth—Natural Law Theory—which believes that man is designed by God—not that there is NO DESIGN to humanity and laws are arbitrary=man is woman is boy, etc., nonsense of radical egalitarianism.
Denying male and female natures is Marxist and designed to destroy the natural family—and religion. Harry Hayes was a Communist. To destroy reality—like the Europeans are doing to condition little children into believing there is no male or femaleness in man— is a joke and stupid. It removes reality and destroys logic and truth in young children’s worldview. Exactly what Islam does. It destroys the worldview that there is a God—a Designer—and Right and Wrong. If Sodomy can be “good” and a “right” then, Evil becomes good and there can be no Right and Wrong except that which is man-made and arbitrary—like the laws of Hitler and Stalin.
Homosexuals deny Natural Laws—just as Karl Marx did—and Atheists do. The ideology is anathema to the Constitution and unity under God and destroys rational thought. It reduces man to base animals where urges trump reason.
Romney has a non-Christian convoluted ideology which is anathema to the Constitution. He can not use logic and reason since it comes from Natural Law Theory which has been embraced by true Christians and unique to the Founding of the USA, since it is the basis of our Constitution and all logic and Rule of Law.
“The Romney campaign had come under fire in some conservative circles for hiring Grenell.

This is exactly what happened in Canada when John Tory, the Canadian equivalent to CINO Romney, led the Ontario Conservative Party. Here’s the story (and photo-op) that led to conservatives staying home, despite Tory’s incumbent opponent being to the left of Obama:
That Romney (and his handlers) didn’t see anything wrong with hiring Grenell is the problem with Romney.
When will Romney resign, so that he can be replaced by an actual conservative candidate for ‘12 POTUS?
Love, just love to know what he said about women in his “tweets.” Undoubtedly, the fair sex would be flattered immensely.
Glad he’s gone.
I’m guessing RINOmney chose him to appeal to gays...
I prefer the more accurate noun “queer” then “gay”
Does it occur to him that he is the instigator of the "hyper-partison" problem? If he was actually concerned about the effects of "hyper-partisonism" he would have demanded to have a back seat role and tell Romney to not put him front and center. He is the loser and the self centered narcissist.
>>>Does anyone have any background on the guys qualifications as opposed to his homosexual advocacy?
He was John Bolton’s spokesman at the UN, so you can be pretty sure there has never been an expansion of US forces anywhere in the world to which he has been opposed.
Ditto! This clown has shoved more knives in the back of Conservatives than the Roman Senate did to Caesar! Et Tu Mittens! FUMR! :P
Romney's State Sponsored Push Of The Homosexual Agenda Onto Children.
1.) "Husband" and "Wife" has been replaced by "Party A" and "Party B".
2.) Justices of the Peace are required to "solemnize" these marriages or be fired, as ordered by Gov. Mitt Romney on April 25, 2004. "We're just following the law," said Mitt Romney.
3.) Male/Female checkoffs for both Party A and Party B now on marriage license.
None of this was required by any law passed by the Legislature, or even ordered by the court. Governor Mitt Romney did this on his own, in cooperation with the ruling: "We're just following the law."
Mitt Romney's Gay Youth Pride Proclamation: "Urge all the citizens of the Commonwealth to take cognizance of this event and participate fittingly in its observance."

BOSTON, February 20, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and a top government leader have told a group of bishops that their request that Catholic institutions be exempt from placing foster children with same-sex parents will be denied. [link]
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldnt make any sense at all."" -- President Ronald Reagan
The poster from the Romney Department of Public Health was pushed statewide in doctors offices, school nurses offices & public transportation. The poster claimed Transphobia in healthcare is unhealthy.
