GOP ripped for funding anti-platform, homosexual candidates

A Massachusetts-based pro-family activist is aghast that Republicans are pouring money into the campaigns of two openly homosexual Republican congressional candidates.

The Republican Party platform clearly opposes abortion and same-sex "marriage," but The Washington Post reports that the National Republican Congressional Committee is backing two openly homosexual candidates who ardently support same-sex marriage and abortion on demand (see related story). The Republican "Young Guns" program is supporting Carl DeMaio of San Diego and Richard Tisei in Massachusetts in their election efforts.

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance, says with all of the strong GOP candidates available, it's "horrible" Tisei got the nod.

"Richard Tisei marches in the gay pride parade, he has said very publicly that he's going to move the Republican Party to be pro-homosexual, he supports abortion," he points out. "He's everything that the conservative movement can't stand – and he's getting showered with money from the Republican establishment."

Tisei is challenging Democrat incumbent John Tierney, who beat him in 2012. Camenker says it would be better for Tisei to lose to Tierney again. "I've always believed that having a liberal Republican who is intent on changing the party to the left is much more dangerous than a liberal Democrat," the conservative activist states. "I would certainly prefer to see Tisei lose than to have him win."

Camenker says the Republican establishment has some sort of fantasy that liberals will vote for them if they run people who are like Democrats.
