Don Grundman: Sodomites are “sub-human”
by Joshua Fauver
The following will be a compilation of posts from one Don Grundman, the founder and former state chairman of the Constitution Party of California as well as it’s current state contact. (as listed on the national party’s website.)
On the piece published by the Independent Political Report, titled Constitution Party Issues Statement on Religious Liberty and Boy Scouts Mr. Grundman had the following to say:
“…. I actually represent the majority of history and civilization throughout time up until this moment when a new sub-human species, spawned by and in allegiance to The Enemy of God, has emerged which will actually sacrifice the children of our nation and the world as a whole to sodomites.”
Incredible isn’t it? How does one suggest with any real confidence that those who are of a different sexual orientation than them are somehow a, and I quote, “sub-human species.” But Grundman didn’t stop there, he went on to suggest that they exist only to “sacrifice the children of our nation and the world as a whole to the sodomites” How absurd! Where does one get off by saying that the homosexuals in this country are out to get our children and to have them sacrificed. There is absolutely no basis for such hideous, inflammatory, and bigoted remarks. It doesn’t matter what your personal religious beliefs are, there is no basis for suggesting that simply because of someone’s sexual orientation that they are “sub-human” I’m appalled by Mr. Grundman’s claim.
Mr. Grundman’s bold, baseless, and ridiculous claims didn’t stop there. He had to go on to suggest that anyone who 1.) Advocates for marriage equality, 2.) suggesst that the tenth amendment should apply to marriage and it be left up for the individual states to decide on, are “moral mutants.” who believe that our children should be taught to be homosexuals. He said:
“It is only in our time that moral mutants like yourself have openly worked to advance the pathology of homosexuality and especially the once unthinkable idea that homosexuality should be taught to children…”
I find this to be a bit absurd. First of all, when did Don Grundman become the judge of all of mankind? Last I checked God was still seated on the throne, and it was He who would be doing the judging. I don’t remember the standard to which I would be held being Don Grundman’s standard of morality. Who is Don to suggest that those who are of a different opinion of him are “moral mutants”? Secondly, where does Don Grundman base his claims that because some in our society feel, and perhaps rightfully so, that they should be free to be with who they choose to be with want to teach our children to be gay? There is absolutely zero basis for such a strong accusation. that the above quoted “unthinkable idea” is ” something which only monsters such as yourself, …, and all too many other degenerates of our time will endorse” I find it a shame to see such immature name calling being found constantly among the leadership in the Constitution Party ranks.
Don Grundman went on to suggest that those who are homosexual aren’t really fighting to have marriage equality. Their goal isn’t to have their relationships legitimatized and legally recognized as they say they are doing. No, in fact their ultimate goal is to be able to legally molest children.
” You do such an excellent job of presenting all of the arguments which the child molestors will use in the next phase of the attack upon the nation by the Homosexual/Sodomy Movement after pervert marriage is legalized.”
I honestly don’t even know what to say about this. I guess my question is when did homosexual become synonymous with child molester? On what grounds does he suggest those who have a homosexual relationship are by extension pedophiles? Why is it that this Don Grundman continues to make claims with absolutely zero evidence or basis in reality?
I’ve documented here for you the behavior and opinions of those in leadership positions of the Constitution Party.Whether it be our example here, Don Grundman, (founder and former state chairman of the California affiliate of the Constitution Party.) or Riley Hood (Chairman of the Constitution Party of Wisconsin, or even Don Stone of the Constitution Party of Illinois, those who are in this party have a now well documented reputation of, under the name of Christianity, using derogatory words, statements, phrases, and comparisons to bash those who live a life style that is contrary to their beliefs. Let me be clear, I am a devout follower of Christ, and it is by my daily reading in the word of God that I see that Jesus’ behavior at no time ever looked like that of Don Grundman. At no point is Jesus found bashing sinners and condemning them and calling them insulting names. On the contrary, Christ embodied love and compassion.
Let’s observe for just one moment a passage from the Bible found in the book of John, chapter 8 versus 1-11
But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. 3 The scribes and the Pharisees *brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court, 4 they *said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?” 6 They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground. 7 But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 When they heard it, theybegan to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court. 10 Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.”]
Let us ask ourselves, would Jesus have acted any differently had they thrown a homosexual man before him instead of an adulterous woman? Certainly not. Now let’s compare Jesus’ behavior to that of Don Grundman’s and company? Does the above examples of Don Grundman’s behavior remind you of Jesus? I feel it only right to remind Don that the word christian means “Christ like.” Sir your behavior is in no way, shape, or form like that of Christ.
Don Grundman, I only ask that if you’re going to call yourself a “Christian” then act like Christ, and if you’re going to call yourself a Constitutionalists, then know and support the Constitution.
