"Well, he would say that, wouldn't he?"
He must be of the school of thought that believes saying something makes it so.
Or he could be of the Hitlerian School of the Big Lie:
"in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation."
You see there is a great difference between being a mere sinner and a sinner who is so fatuously up his own arse and mad with arrogance that he really believes that something cannot be a sin simply because he indulges in it.
This is the reality of sexually-liberated PC liberal extremism.
