A 'Gay' Guide to GOP Candidates

A 'gay' guide to GOP candidates

Salon magazine recently performed a public service for homosexuals –
publishing a thorough "gay" guide to the GOP presidential candidates.

But it's not just a public service for homosexuals. It's also a public
service for those of us who see the homosexual political agenda as extremely
dangerous to the very survival of our nation.

I thought I would perform a public service myself by making it unnecessary
for you to read through a voluminous report in a publication littered with
soft-core porn, obscenity, vulgarity and profanity by summarizing it right

Who is the most homosexual-friendly of the Republicans seeking the

It's Rudy Giuliani, hands down, according to the report. ... far and away,
the most homosexual-friendly person seeking the Republican nomination. It's
one reason I wouldn't vote for him. On so many cultural issues, he's part of
the problem, not part of the solution for America.

Who's next? According to Salon, it's John McCain. "...during his 2000 run
for president, he launched blistering attacks on Jerry Falwell and other
evangelical leaders, calling them "agents of intolerance." ...opposes a
constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage – the only way to prevent
it, as far as I can see.

I have other reasons for having decided not to vote for McCain, no matter
what. ...consider this virtual endorsement by an advocate for the homosexual

Who is the third most homosexual-friendly GOP candidate? ...According to
Salon, it's Ron Paul.

The fourth most homosexual friendly ... Fred Thompson. ...famously declared
his opposition to a constitutional amendment to define marriage
...explaining it was unnecessary. On Sept. 7, he declared, "There have been
no state legislatures that have affirmatively allowed gay marriages in the
United States." That same day, California legislators did just that.

While initially somewhat excited about Thompson as a possible electable
alternative to the other front-runners, responses like this and his
avoidance altogether of the Values Voters Debate has rendered me extremely
skeptical about voting for him under any circumstances.

In fifth place is Mitt Romney, dubbed by Salon, "the switch-hitter." The
report notes that his position on the issue today is 180 degrees opposite
from the way he governed in Massachusetts.

"The Romney record on these issues is such a muddle that his performance in
the White House is difficult to predict," concludes Salon.

I agree. Anyone willing to take a chance on that crapshoot? Not me.

In sixth place is Mike Huckabee.

"He has told reporters that he is open to state-sponsored civil unions that
would bestow the legal rights of marriage on gay and lesbian couples," says
the report.

It strikes me that Huckabee is trying to be everything to everyone. Didn't
we have enough of that with the election of another Arkansas governor by the
name of Bill Clinton?

The other candidates vying for the GOP nomination could all be safely
described as open, unadulterated opponents of the homosexual agenda,
according to both Salon and my own research. They are: Tom Tancredo, Duncan
Hunter, Sam Brownback and Alan Keyes.

It seems to me homosexual activists have more choices among the Republican
candidates than do traditional Republicans.
