National GOP establishment lavishly funding liberal homosexual activist Richard Tisei for Congress in Massachusetts.

Has long record of outrageous activity.

Is this a warning where the Republican Party will go in the next few years?

POSTED: October 14, 2012

The Republican establishment in Washington is pouring enormous amounts of money -- over a million dollars -- into Massachusetts to elect an aggressive, anti-family homosexual activist to Congress.

In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei is known as an openly "gay" liberal Republican politician who ran for Lt. Governor in 2010. Prior to that as a State Senator, among other things he worked to successfully block the people's right to vote on the Marriage Amendment.

Salute to his "community." Advertising in the Boston "Gay Pride Week" official program in 2010.

Tisei is the only Republican Congressional candidate in Massachusetts to receive such support from the national Republican Congressional campaign!

Flood of expensive TV ads

Anyone watching TV in Massachusetts has undoubtedly seen a flood of television ads which support just one particular Republican challenger, Richard Tisei, mostly through attacks on the Democratic incumbent, Rep. John Tierney (6th District). The ads are impossible to miss, and easily dwarf all the TV spending for Republicans in all the other Congressional districts in the state.

The Republican National Congressional Committee (RNCC) has picked Tisei to be one of their so-called "Young Guns," an elite group of 30 US House challengers being touted as "the new generation of right-wing House Republicans who are looking to put their conservative stamp on Washington." (We're not making this up.)

The RNCC and its super PAC Young Guns Action Fund have already spent nearly a million dollars for hundreds of 30-second ads on behalf of Tisei, and many more are planned.

How radical is Richard Tisei?

Tisei is both fiscally and socially liberal. His political views and record in the Massachusetts Legislature include:

  • High taxes. Has refused to sign Grover Norquist's pledge that he would not raise taxes if elected to Congress. In Mass. Legislature, Tisei voted against several bills to reduce taxes, earning him the wrath of Citizens for Limited Taxation. Tisei was the only State Senate Republican who voted against the tax rollback in May 2000.
  • Abortion. Strongly supports abortion. Rated 100% by NARAL and 100% by Planned Parenthood.
  • Abortion buffer zone. Co-sponsored the bill that expanded the buffer zone around abortion clinics.
  • Hostile to religious faith. Co-sponsored the "emergency contraception bill" in 2005 (vetoed by Gov. Mitt Romney because it would force Catholic hospital workers to act against their faith).
  • Gay activist. "Came out" as a homosexual in 2010 and has proudly and publicly embraced the homosexual lifestyle. Prior to that he pushed its agenda supporting a range of bills and legislative actions, working with activists and the homosexual lobby. Has since appeared in numerous homosexual newspapers and magazines. Marched in 2010 Gay Pride parade (see news video).

  • Gay marriage. Passionately supports same-sex "marriage". He brags that he fought to make it "legal" in Massachusetts. Believes it's a civil right that must be granted across America. (See excerpt from radio interview, below.) Tisei may "marry" his male partner after Election Day, reports the Washington Post.
  • Stopped Marriage Amendment vote in Massachusetts in 2007. As part of the leadership in the legislature, fought successfully NOT to let the people of Massachusetts vote on the Marriage Amendment. Bragged in homosexual magazine that "The margin of victory [to deny the vote] was provided by Republicans," and he took the lead in pressuring and persuading them.
  • Helped to spread "gay marriage" across the U.S. with his vote to repeal "1913 Law" (in 2008). That law had barred out-of-state same-sex couples from "marrying" in Massachusetts if those "marriages" were not recognized as legal in their home states.
  • Gay propagandist. Appeared in slick pro-homosexual "marriage" propaganda video produced by the homosexual lobby group MassEquality to persuade legislators to block the Marriage Amendment. Includes a number of questionable (i.e., phony) statistics.
  • Actively works to move the Republican party leftward on "gay rights." Told homosexual newspaper ""What I would say to people is that we will never have true equality unless we have strong voices and allies speaking out for fairness from both sides of the aisle."

    As the Washington Post reported: "Tisei takes an evolutionary rather than revolutionary approach to gay rights and the congressional agenda. 'If I'm in the [Republican] caucus, people are going to see me, they're going to get to know me. Just the fact that I'm there, is going to make a lot of people question, or think about the issue differently. Rather than poking somebody in the eye, the best way to deal with it is to let them evolve. I've seen all kinds of people, Democrats and Republicans, change their opinions of it over time.'"
  • "Transgender Rights" bill. Was lone Republican co-sponsor of radical Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Law when first filed. The bill (passed in 2011) forces businesses, schools, and government to accept cross-dressing and transsexuality or face punishment. Was a strong proponent and helped develop the strategy (i.e., "this is an anti-discrimination bill") to get it passed.

  • Supports homosexual agenda in schools. Told homosexual newspaper that if elected to Lt. Governor he would "work very closely with" the dreaded state-funded Commission on GLBT Youth -- which spends public money implementing homosexual programs in the public schools and supports gay-bisexual-transgender clubs for kids both on and off campus.
  • Turncoat Republican. Tisei told National Public Radio: "When Gov. Romney was here, I voted with him half the time, and I voted against him half the time. ... I have no problem working with Nancy Pelosi. Just because she's in the opposition, I'm not gonna poke her in the eye."

Tisei believes that "gay marriage" is inevitable in America, and he plans to fight hard to make that happen sooner rather than later. He compares it to interracial marriage, and says that court decisions and laws are necessary -- that people should not be allowed to vote on it. In May, Tisei and national homosexual activist Jarrett Barrios were interviewed on Boston's National Public Radio affiliate.

Here's what Tisei told NPR about gay marriage taking over America:

"I look at this as more in a historical perspective. This is the same situation that popped up with interracial marriage in 1948 in California; a very controversial court decision there and California became the first state to legalize interracial marriage. It took a while for the rest of the country to catch up. State by state you saw a change, until finally the Supreme Court some 20-something years later with a decision that banning interracial marriage in the United States was unconstitutional.

"I kind of look at this situation we're on as pretty much on the same track...I think you need both the legislature. . . AND you need the courts. This isn't going to happen overnight, but look at the progress that's been made already since Massachusetts became the first state in the country to legalize gay marriage."

You can be sure that Tisei will vote to repeal DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) if he's elected to Congress.

And the Republican establishment considers him a "conservative"? Most Republicans would see a Richard Tisei as the exact opposite of anyone they would support, much less someone the Republican establishment would spend enormous funds to elect to Congress. He does not appear to agree much with the Republican Party Platform, to say the least.

What is the Republican "Young Guns" program?

The "Young Guns" program was by started by Congressman Paul Ryan (the current GOP VP Candidate) along with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia and Republican House Whip Kevin McCarthy of California. It was basically sold as a strategy to raise money to support a select group of aggressive, conservative challengers in winnable Congressional races, and nurture them to victory. In 2009 it became part of the National Republican Congressional Committee and helped in the 2010 GOP takeover of the House.

The term "Young Guns" originally came from an October 2007 article in The Weekly Standard. In 2010 Ryan, Cantor, and McCarthy wrote a book about the idea.

Their media image of the "Young Guns" has been well crafted. As pointed out above, the group is regularly described as "a new generation of right-wing House Republicans who are looking to put their conservative stamp on Washington."

But behind the scenes, it's another picture entirely. As the Washington Post reports:

Republican leaders are actively helping Tisei's campaign, and they promise that his sexual orientation and his liberal views on gay marriage and abortion rights would not make him an outcast in their conservative caucus.

"We all came here from somewhere. It is the opportunity that drew us here, and he will have every bit of opportunity, as an openly gay Republican, as any other Republican," House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.) said. "I told him, we're fully behind him. I'm supportive of his candidacy and look forward to serving with him."

Super PAC is formed

In 2011, the Young Guns Action Fund super PAC (YG Action Fund) was formed to raise the big money for the 2012 election and take some of the burden off the RNCC. This past April, billionaire Sheldon Adelson (who had earlier given millions to the Gingrich campaign) gave $5 million to the YG Action Fund and they were off and running, and raising more money from other wealthy Republican donors. This year there are 30 "young gun" candidates selected for their hardcore support, including Tisei, who has already received over a million dollars from the YG Action Fund, and thus appears to be getting a particularly large share of the money.

Banner on the Young Guns Action Fund Facebook page. Note the word "conservative."

Why are Congressional leaders supporting Tisei? Strange answers.

Of all the Congressional races across the country (and across Massachusetts) why pick this one? And why Tisei of all candidates, who is loathed by the conservative base and is running against an entrenched incumbent? Why not pick a race like the 4th District that's an open seat (with Barney Frank retiring)? How did these decisions get made?

It's very difficult to get any answers on this. Nobody at the RNCC would talk to us, despite numerous attempts by telephone and email.



From the NRCC's "Young Guns" website.


The most prominent "Young Guns" staffer quoted in the media is Brad Dayspring, a former deputy chief of staff to Eric Cantor. Dayspring recently told Commonwealth Magazine, “Richard Tisei is a next generation, live-and-let-live Republican and someone that the people of Massachusetts can be proud of."

We finally reached by Dayspring by phone this week. This was our conversation with him:

We started out listing the multitude of problems with Tisei and asked Dayspring why they were supporting him. "He is the most conservative candidate running in the 6th District," he told us.

But Tisei is the only Republican in that race, we said. Dayspring simply repeated: "He is the most conservative candidate running in the 6th District."

But what about the other districts, we asked? What about the 4th District, with Sean Bielat. It's an open seat and Bielat got 45% last time against Barney Frank. What about the 5th District, with Jon Golnik polling very well against Nikki Tsongas? Why not support them? Dayspring simply repeated, "Tisei is the most conservative candidate running in the 6th District."

Then he added, "There are no other competitive districts in Massachusetts." With the Obama voters coming out in force, he said, "to support anyone else in Massachusetts would be a fool's errand." When we started to rebut that, he interrupted, "Have you seen any Republican prognosticators that say any other races in Massachusetts are competitive?" We admitted we hadn't consulted prognosticators.

"We are not in the business of throwing away money," Dayspring stated. And that was that. His attitude had become quite condescending. And it's a bit maddening to try to argue with that kind of logic, so we thanked him for his time and ended the call.

Pushing hard for Tisei

Besides the flood of lavish, expensive television ads, Tisei gets other red-carpet treatment from the "Young Guns" group. He gets lots of PR publicity, including TV interviews on major networks and media outlets. And in Tisei's case, it works like a charm. It's the only time you'll ever see ABC, CNN, and the Huffington Post gush over a Republican.

House Speaker John Boehner, flanked by Congressmen Kevin McCarthy (left) and Eric Cantor (right) appear on CNN piece highlighting Richard Tisei. Watch VIDEO here.

And of course, there have been various swank DC fundraising events. This past Tuesday, Oct. 9, House Speaker John Boehner personally spent the morning raising money for Tisei. The average GOP Congressional candidate can only dream of that.

From a Tierney ad: Invitation by Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, and others to fundraising event for Tisei (note top billing) and other "Young Guns."


The push for Tisei, of course, includes the cooperation of the Massachusetts State Republican Party, which cleared the way for him to get the early money without the distraction and delay of a primary. In 2010, Bill Hudak, a charismatic local attorney, ran in that district and got 43% of the vote against Tierney. Hudak planned to run again this time and thus would have been in a primary against Tisei. But the state party establishment pressured Hudak to drop out before the primary so Tisei could have a clear run. In our opinion, that was pretty low.

(Finally, this is sadly not the first time this has happened. In 2010, Tisei was running for Lt. Governor as running mate to Charlie Baker, who described himself as "to the left of Obama on social issues." Louisiana Governor Haley Barbour, who claims to be a conservative, used his Republican Governor's Association group to pour over $2 million for attack ads against Baker and Tisei's opponents. It didn't work; Baker and Tisei still lost.)

A gush of major "gay Republican" money for Tisei

If that's not enough, the Republican "gay money machine" is gearing up for Tisei. As the Washington Post reported on Sept. 29:

The Tisei campaign has also become a rallying point for a cluster of wealthy Republican donors who support gay rights and would like to see the party move away from some of its recent harsh rhetoric on the issue.

Tisei has the financial backing of some of the most prominent gay conservatives, including Peter Thiel, the billionaire co-founder of PayPal, and Ken Mehlman, the former Republican National Committee chairman. Mehlman, now a private-equity executive, hosted a New York fundraiser for Tisei. A new super PAC supporting Republicans who approve of gay marriage — with financial backing from billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer — may enter the Tisei race in a few weeks.

Conclusion

Ladies and gentlemen, this is your 2012 National Republican party. Diversity is much more important than conservative principles. Maybe they think that if unprincipled Republicans get elected, the liberals and the media (and their mushy RINO donors) will like them all better. The bottom line is that it's down to the same old thing: money and power. They can pretend to be conservative for the hoi polloi, but they're much too "refined" to actually hold to those principles. The YG Action Fund spokesman made that pretty clear to us. And this will only be exacerbated among the Republicans under a Romney administration, we fear.

Unfortunately, in the long run everybody on the right suffers from this kind of strategy. It's very shortsighted. Without principles and real fortitude, nothing else in politics works for very long. That's pretty much what happened back in 2006, isn't it?

As a Congressman, Tisei will do exactly what he did in the Massachusetts Legislature: be an aggressive fifth columnist for the radical homosexual and abortion movement, terrible on taxes, and work tirelessly to move the party to the left. None of that seems to matter to the establishment Republicans.

We remember hearing how hard it was to get conservative principles into the National Republican Party Platform at the convention in Tampa this year. It was only through sheer perseverance by conservatives that it worked out. The RINOs there had tried to stack the deck, we were told, to create a much more watered down document. Tisei shows us exactly where the RINOs hope to take the party.

But we'll say one thing for Richard Tisei. He doesn't hide what he believes or what his goals are. From that perspective, he's probably the only honest one in the whole bunch. Maybe the only one there with "principles."

What you can do

Although the "Citizens United" Supreme Court decision has given much more influence to wealthy donors, the Party elite still cannot ignore the average person.

We think it would be useful to contact the Republican National Congressional Committee either by phone or email and let them know why you will never give them a penny. We believe it's very important for them to hear that from a lot of angry people.

Beyond that, give generously to individual CANDIDATES. But don't give any money the Republican Party or PACs connected with them. This is a widespread problem, trust us. In any case, you'll never be able to compete with the millionaires who seem to control things within the Party establishment.

I fail to see why liberal Republicans think they will win in states like MA. The Democratic party has cornered the market on offering eveything a socially and fiscally liberal person would want. It’s like why pick the off-brand when one can get the genuine article for the same price?

I’ll investigate this and if I find out that the GOP has donated one cent to this sodomite’s campaign, I will switch parties immediately. I will join the Consitution Party, a party that does not tolerate open rebellion against God. I swear if this sodomite creep is being supported by Boehner and the rest of the Beltway crowd, I am through with the Republican Party.

Scott Brown calls himself a pro choice republican and look at all the cheerleaders he has right here at FR.

Lovely. Any wonder why after three decades of exclusively supporting and voting for the GOP, I’ve lost every tiny shred of faith and trust in them? GOP-establishment leadership consistently pushing for crap like open-borders amnesty to this sick farce of homo-marriage, all while basically backstabbing Tea Party/Sarah Palin conservatism?

I loathe these degenerate scumbags that now seem to be in total charge of the RNC/GOP with a passion that I once only reserved for idiots on the left.

Watching a special election episode of “How the states got their shapes” on the history channel they had a college democrat and college republican. The college republican decided to speak up for the gays because he’s gay and wants to get married.

“I swear if this sodomite creep is being supported by Boehner and the rest of the Beltway crowd, I am through with the Republican Party.”

Romney also supports gays, went to all their parades in Mass. when he was governor, put out fliers that he supported their cause, said this year it's okay for gays to be in boy scouts - gay marriage law passed when he was governor.

Oh, but, he's not Obama, so he's okay. /s

Romney is a liberal defacto Republican and this forum will jump for joy if he wins. You said, “They refuse to acknowledge past experience.” That is exactly Romney, his past is being tossed aside because he's not Obama.

One is either a conservative or a conservative in name only - a CINO.

I understand voting for Romney as a means of getting rid of Obama but I haven’t forgotten that Romney is ideologically in the same place as Bill Clinton.

If he isn’t hammered into a conservative shape by us, he’ll be a one term president and that means another democrat presidency 4 years from now.

"the new generation of right-wing House Republicans who are looking to put their conservative stamp on Washington." (We're not making this up.)

That part I would be very surprised if they aren't making it up...I seriously doubt the NRCC would put out a statement with the adjective "right-wing" as that is normally a negative term used to attack conservatives.

John Tierney is seen as vulnerable while the other seats are not, so the whole dialog about them pouring money into that campaign and not into the others as though some sort of deliberate favoritism is being shown is a false narrative.

That said, if his stands on the issues as they describe are actually as bad as stated, I could do without him being a member of the caucus...he would just be another media darling they could put on to bash his own party when we are trying to move legislation forward.

You speak the truth. But I’ve had it up to my back teeth with people who have turned their back on conservatism but still excoriate people like you and me who remain true to our principles.

Romney is nobody’s conservative, and conservatism is the reason we all post here. Problem is, we won’t ‘hammer’ Romney into anything he doesn’t want to be. He controls the party, he controls the party apparatus, and he has a demonstrated history of thinking he can control US.

Which, of course, he can’t.

Why I ask would we EVER want this kind of guy elected to Congress? The same folks that won’t fund Todd Akin do fund this ultra liberal Republican? This guy gets elected and he becomes the darling of leftist media and then we have to deal with BS about how if only we moderated our views on SSM and abortion we’d win. The problem is this guy isn’t just a social liberal he’s a fiscal liberal. He also supports the same anti-Religious ideas as leftist fags. Sorry we don’t need him. There are hundreds of more deserving races like Todd Long in FL which is very close and if he loses it will be because the GOP wasted money on dumb races like this in MA.

Scott Brown presses Republicans to be ‘more inclusive’ on abortion

Brown blasts back: I am a pro-choice Republican

Conservatives ae going to have to face reality and realize that we're being evicted from the GOP even if they don't have the man parts to say so openly.

When did candidates stop running on their merits and think their sexual deviancy was more important?

The dichotomy should be coming more obviously clear to more and more people... a Republican Party that basically outlawed the words “Tea Party” at their convention, yet goes all-out supporting and funding its own Barney Frank deviant for Congress!

Absolutely stomach-turning. It almost makes you wonder if some kind of cabal of genuine evil has pretty much taken over the GOP leadership ranks.

George Soros was a source of funding for the Main Street Republicans. I think the group is now effectively defunct but many of their people are still in congress like John McCain.

Most people don’t have the courage to admit it but Sheldon Adelson a supporter of gay marriage, abortion, open borders etc.

I’m so disgusted with the republican party. They helped put Harry Reid back in office here in Nevada because they hated Sharon Angle so much, and wouldn’t financially support her, yet they will back a homosexual?? Blows my mind. I’m voting For Romney, THEIR choice, only for the sake of my children and grandchildren. Hopefully, a new party will emerge in 2016.

Romney will promote homosexuality as soon as he's President, just like he did in Mass. He took a known public homo into his campaign leadership and the guy resigned not long after because he wanted to. Romney likely has them now and he will as President. He appointed homos in Mass., even homo judges.

But, hey, he isn't Obama, so it's okay - we'll just ask Romney to be conservative after he's President - we'll hold his nose to the conservative grind stone - that will fix him. /s

Will as of today I am no longer a member of the Republican Party. The merger with the democrats is complete. One party control has been accomplished. These RINO asses don’t even attempt to hide it anymore. Not a lick of difference in the parties anymore. The only reason I want to get rid of Obummer is because he is destroying the country with socialist, God-hating politics. But as far as social issues are concerned, both parties have been taken over by the perferts. To hell with both of them.

“Romney also supports gays, went to all their parades in Mass. when he was governor, put out fliers that he supported their cause, said this year it’s okay for gays to be in boy scouts - gay marriage law passed when he was governor”

I am repulsed by Mitt Romney’s liberal politics, but like I have said before he’s still 1000 times better than the man who is nothing in the world but an American-hating marxist, trying his damnest to destroy Christianity in this country. And with Romney as president maybe a republican controlled senate and house can hold his feet to the fire. No way that happens with the empty-suit Kenyan.

This is definitely a sign of things to come in the GOP.

If Romney wins, — which of course would be a happy change from Obama, — the GOP will take it as an object lesson that centrism (defined as socially liberal fiscally restrained opportunism) wins generally. Expect more queers come out of the woodwork and be enthusiastically supported by the GOP.

Romney and Ryan have both said they are fine with a sodomized military and will do nothing to change it.
Of course, Mitt has always been a homo hugger.

Im on board with most stuff posted here but, the anti-gay stuff is really over the top, don't you think? Sure, there are some real freaky gay people and you've certainly high-lighted some of them with your post but, you make it look like gay people are a threat to civilization. Really? Could you possibly be anymore paranoid? I don't think so.

Did you ever stop to consider that there are freaky people in any large group? Somewhere between 5-10% of the population is probably gay or at least bisexual. Ironically, it would probably be lower than that but, a certain segment of the people are gay simply because they enjoy annoying the hell out of people like you.

My advice is to vote against gay marriage and tone down your over-the-top warnings. I'm as heterosexual and as conservative as you, but, I also have both lesbian and gay friends. And even though they are mostly liberal and we debate constantly over their political naivete, I consider them all to be good people. You can be nice...really you can.

So they want to evict 70% of the party because it is without a doubt that a supermajority of GOP are conservative on abortion and ssm. That is why the GOP is the stupid party. I had some idiot say we needed a firewall in places like MA? Really how does that work when we have some media darling GOP who is as likely to vote with liberal Dems as they are conservative GOP? Scott Brown has been a real disappointment. He could’ve led the way for a conservative awakening in MA but he chose not to lead.

See the left knows that coexisting won’t get them what they want which is why they actively try to force their beliefs on us or if not us our children. We had better realize that this isn’t a game where we can just split the difference and all will be well. What we see culturally and fiscally is the result of that attitude. We need to cling to our idelogical positions and sell them or we will find ourselves an endangered species.

Apparently, you are either not a Christian, or one who has not read the Bible much.

This site, as declared by Jim Robinson, it's owner and founder, is "As a conservative site, Free Republic is pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-Constitution, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-private property rights, pro-limited taxes, pro-capitalism, pro-national defense, pro-freedom, and-pro America. We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc. We also oppose the United Nations or any other world government body that may attempt to impose its will or rule over our sovereign nation and sovereign people. We believe in defending our borders, our constitution and our national sovereignty. "

God, through his Apostle Paul, defines the sin of Homosexuality as follows:

Romans 1:18-32

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Your argument isn't with me, where Homosexuality is concerned, it's with your Heavenly Father.

He defines Homosexuality as evil; there is not compromise with evil.

You'll have to decide which side you are on.

Your post describes you far better than it describes God-fearing Christians. God said sodomy was an abomination and He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their perversion. Think He forgot what He declared. Some of US know full well this nation has been blessed and protected and some of US would like to continue receiving those blessings and protection.

There is nothing gay about these perverts. They know it and they have NO shame. They are mentally unstable. Oh, there will be no sodomy in heaven.

Look, I understand social conservatives we need to work with people who agree with us on national defense issues or fiscal issues.

Please try to understand that, from our perspective, homosexuality really **IS** a threat to civilization.

If you don't agree, I understand. Libertarianism proceeds from different principles than those which I hold, and while I can work with libertarians I understand we have different foundations for our beliefs which lead us to share many but not all of the same beliefs.

But please understand that I disagree, and disagree strongly, that homosexuality needs to be accepted as somebody’s personal choice.

The only recourse would be to vote for the demrat. Coprophiles should not be given power regardless of party or whatever boys organization they infiltrate.

Coprophiles should not be given power under any circumstance. You simply vote Demrat in this case.
