‘Gay’ Lobby Group Condemns McCain — as McCain Said to Be ‘Proud’ of Past Log Cabin Endorsement

john_mccain.jpgRepublicans For Family Values is back online, just in time to highlight this report from the homosexual newspaper Washington Blade — which aptly explains both social conservatives’ ambivalence toward Sen. John McCain and the reason why, when faced with a potential President Obama, most are reluctantly supporting the Arizona Republican.

McCain’s Human Rights Campaign 2006 Congressional Scorecard rating of 33 percent, though way too high from the perspective of most conservatives, is in stark contrast to Obama’s 89 out of 100 in the same HRC Scorecard. McCain voted against HRC on all but one key vote (he opposed the Federal Marriage Amendment), while Obama voted with HRC on all but one vote (he did not support a pro-homosexual immigration bill).

Here is another way to compare the two senators’ records: Human Rights Campaign’s analysis of Obama’s co-sponsorship of pro-homosexual legislation backed by HRC, versus the same analysis for McCain.)

The fact that McCain’s spokesman reports (below) that the senator was “proud” to receive the endorsement of the homosexual Log Cabin Republicans — a group that crusades for homosexual “marriage” and routinely demonizes Christian conservatives just as all the other “gay” activist groups do– will stick in the craw of pro-family Republicans.

We eagerly wait to see if McCain smartly makes a serious play for pro-family, conservative voters in the wake of California’s homosexual “marriage” ruling, or opts instead to try to split the middle of the GOP’s “big tent” — perhaps even making bolder pro-homosexual overtures to court “moderates.” — Peter LaBarbera

The following is excerpted from a Washington Blade report June 6 (emphasis added):

Log Cabin Romney Ad Ignores Homosexuality and Calls Pro-Lifers ‘Religious Extremists’

Check out this anti-Romney ad created by the homosexual activist Log Cabin Republicans which, strangely, does not mention Romney’s flip-flops on homosexuality. We agree with Log Cabin that Romney is a political chameleon, but it’s odd that Log Cabin chose to highlight issues other than the one that defines their organization.

Perhaps the LCR strategists understood that drawing attention to Romney’s support for a Federal Marriage Amendment would actually help him among Iowa voters. Regardless of the reason why, Log Cabin’s current and past support for “pro-choice” Republicans shows them to be the liberal special interest group that they are.

So if you’re a pro-life Republican, you’re a “religious extremist”? That’s pure bigotry and the sort of demonization we’re used to from the Left, not “conservatives” (as the Log Cabinites often claim to be). Republicans would be as foolish to drop their principled pro-life platform defending the unborn as they would be to embrace pro-homosexual “civil unions” or “same-sex marriage.” — Peter LaBarbera
