Republican Homosexual Group Endorses Romney, Campaign ‘Pleased to Have the Support’

A well-known homosexual group within the Republican establishment has officially endorsed Mitt Romney for president.

Log Cabin Republicans made the announcement Tuesday, stating that it was supporting the candidate for his economic and national security policies. The group said that it communicated with Romney and his campaign before making the decision, and also discussed the matter with other members of the organization.

“We are Republicans, and we agree with Governor Romney’s vision for America in which success is a virtue, equal opportunity is ensured, and leaders recognize that it is the American people, not government, that build our nation and fuel its prosperity,” said executive director R. Clarke Cooper.

Although Romney has stated that be believes a homosexual relationship cannot be defined as a “marriage,” but feels that homosexuals have the right to be “in a loving relationship and to even adopt children,” the group says they think Romney will be sympathetic to their cause.

“On issues of particular concern to the LGBT community, we believe Governor Romney will move the ball forward compared to past Republican presidents,” Cooper continued. “No matter who is in the White House, it is crucial our community always has a credible voice speaking out on behalf of LGBT Americans. Log Cabin Republicans will be that voice to President Mitt Romney.”

“Mitt Romney is not Rick Santorum, and Paul Ryan is not Michele Bachmann,” he said. “Otherwise, our decision would have been different.”

While a number of homosexual organizations have been angered over the endorsement, claiming that the Log Cabin Republicans are betraying their cause, Cooper said he disagrees.

“Those who point fearfully to potential vacancies on the United States Supreme Court, we offer a reminder: five of the eight federal court rulings against DOMA were written by Republican-appointed judges,” he stated.

Following the announcement, Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul told reporters that the Romney-Ryan ticket is thankful for the endorsement.

“Governor Romney is pleased to have the support of the Log Cabin Republicans and looks forward to working together for the future of our country,” she said.

As previously reported, Mitt Romney explained to Neil Cavuto of Fox News this past May, ““[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do. But, to call that ‘marriage’ is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.”

Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul also outlined in August following the Boy Scout’s decision to reaffirm its policy prohibiting openly-homosexual leaders and members that Romney did not agree. She told the Associated Press that Romney still stands by his beliefs that homosexual men should be able to serve in the organization. She specifically noted that Romney had outlined his views in 1994 during a political debate, and that his stance has not changed.

“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during the debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

According to reports, Romney has had contact with the Log Cabin Republicans in the past as governor of Massachusetts. Boston’s Edge points out that Romney wrote to the organization in 1994, stating that he was more supportive of the homosexual agenda than his opponent.

“As a result of our discussions and other interactions with gay and lesbian voters across the state, I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for America’s gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent,” he wrote.

    Romney is a dyed in the wool liberal. His record in Massachusetts should be a wake-up call for Christians. But sadly, most professing Christians are so desperate for change, that they are willing to exchange the truth for a lie. The masses are being deceived by this charlatan.

    The homosexual Republican Log Cabin group is an example of why Christians shouldn’t be involved in politics. In 2 Cor.6:14-18 the Apostle Paul said: “Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can goodness be a partner with wickedness?…Therefore…separate yourselves from them…And I will be your father…says the Lord Almighty.” Another powerful reason is that politics divides people (1 Cor. 1:10-13) and has been the cause of horrible wars where “Christians” have slaughtered one another, such as the Civil War, now being featured at the Huntington Library in L.A. CA. (Please see my essay here on Abraham Lincoln) We Christians also understand that the one causing all the world’s trouble is Satan, and ONLY Jesus is going to get rid of him, so voting for these would be messianic, political saviors is disloyal to our Lord and savior.

    You are sadly very mistaken and you are taking those verses way out of context.

      Dear Charles, please tell us all what the proper meanings for those scriptures are. Should Christians allow politics to divide them as happened during the civil war? Should Christians be active in political organizations that embraces sex perverts(LGBTers)and atheists. Who is going to solve this worlds problems by getting rid of Satan, some slimy human politician? To whom do Christians pledge allegiance, to God and Jesus, or to something created by men? With Christian love Ross
