Sandra Lee, Food Network star and live-in girlfriend of New York Governor Chris Cuomo used to social media to declare her displeasure with the 7-2 Supreme Court ruling on the controversial Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission decision.
Her support for same-sex marriage is curious since she’s not married to the man she’s living with. I’ve always said that liberal support for same-sex sexuality is used to justify other immoral and socially denigrating sexual relationships.
If Sandra Lee can live with the governor of New York, then why can’t other young women do it? It follows that out-of-wedlock births are a natural consequence of such an arrangement. Where’s the morality of the man who fathered the baby to marry the woman he got pregnant? Who says he must stick around? Marriage is a social convention, not a moral one.
If it’s OK for men to engage in sex with other men – married or not – then it’s OK for a man and woman to live together without being married or for a man to impregnate a woman and goes his own way. It’s what Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003), a Democratic, who represented New York in the United States Senate, described as “defining deviancy down.”
Robert Bork explained the phenomenon:
Emile Durkheim, a founder of sociology, posited that there is a limit to the amount of deviant behavior any community can “afford to recognize.” As behavior worsens, the community adjusts its standards so that conduct once thought reprehensible is no longer deemed so.”1
Sandra Lee can get away with the arrangement because she and her live-in boyfriend, the governor of New York, are rich. Their immorality is masked by their wealth and the acceptance of the majority of voters in New York. Let’s not forget that Cuomo and Lee are divorced and support abortion. Cuomo claims he’s a practicing Catholic.
In receiving communion at a Mass offered by the Roman Catholic bishop of Albany, NY, that state’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, who supports abortion, gay marriage, and lives with his girlfriend, committed an “objectively sacrilegious” act that “produces grave scandal,” according to Dr. Edward Peters, a top expert in Catholic Church law and a consultant to the highest court at the Vatican.
Peters specifically cited Cuomo’s cohabiting with Food Network hostess Sandra Lee as “publicly acting in violation of a fundamental moral expectation of the Church,” and that “as long as he persists in such conduct, he should refrain from taking Holy Communion” and “if he approaches for Holy Communion, he should be denied the august sacrament in accord with Canon 915.” (CNS News)
At the same time, these same moral misfits are defining their own brand of moral deviancy up…
