Sandy Rios Responds To Critics Upset With Her Comparison Of Gays To Kidnapper Ariel Castro
The Internet had a collective "... the fuck?" moment on Tuesday when Fox News contributor Sandy Rios compared gay men to convicted Ohio kidnapper/rapist Ariel Castro.
From the dark depths of her self-dug hole, Sandy wants us to toss her a shovel so she can dig out.
Today, Sandy devoted a portion of her radio broadcast to reach out to those who may have been offended by her remarks.
If what we’re saying is not true, it should have no power over you, it shouldn’t bother you. Because I think in time, what’s true and what’s right, what works, what comports with reality will be lasting. So, let’s just see if your view of this is lasting. Let’s just see if homosexual marriage is all that you think it is, if it’s a pure and wonderful expression of love for two people.
Now, I would never say that homosexuals cannot love. They can, of course. Capable of great love. And I know there’s been tremendous heartbreak in the homosexual community – and I’ve talked about this before – heartbreak when you lose a loved one, heartbreak when you break up. Because, you know, there aren’t many lasting relationships – maybe among lesbians, but certainly not among gay men, that’s not the norm.
So, there’s a lot of heartbreak, a lot of rejection when you get older, so I know that you’re capable and able. You’re humans, you love. The point is, the right kind of love. The right kind of love is life-giving. And the right kind of love is love for God, love for your natural family, love between a man and a woman and a woman and a man in marriage. Not cohabitating. There’s just some standards that God lays down.
There. Does that make you feel better?
