SUPPORTING THE GAY AGENDA IS NOT THE ANSWER
I wonder if you have noticed what I have.
Back in the Bush years, conservatives were still pretty much agreed that Bush was a Christian conservative. Not that he had lived up to that reputation or anything.
In many ways he had not.
But many conservatives still had that starry-eyed confidence that all could still be ok, and that Bush was somehow the new Reagan, just a size smaller, and would lead us to the Promised Land.
But by the time it was clear he had failed to do that, and McCain came around, conservatives were starting to get their antennas up and check things out more carefully, although of course, even in 2008, there were people saying "anything but Obama" even though most didn’t know who he was.
But now the ABO crowd has shrunk considerably and there are conservatives, especially conservative Christians, the law-and-order people and assorted patriot groups, saying NO WAY to Romney. And I don't see many of the most resolute among them losing their nerve as elections draw nigh.
This is seen as a sign of doom by many, but the Republic can probably survive even another 4 years of Obama, just as Rome survived the weirdest, most despicable possible emperors. One reason we can survive is that the more radical the Federal government gets, the stronger and more defiant the states become. There is a sense that some states will go to the wall for their rights. There is also a possibility that CA and a few other profligate liberal states will go bankrupt and that no one will be able to bail them out. Bankruptcy tends to neutralize political entities, making them less harmful than they might otherwise be.
Now Romney is known to have been in the pocket of the Log Cabin Republicans in MA and this is widely believed to be why he immediately ordered his JPs to perform gay marriages after the Supreme Court ruled against the traditional definition of marriage--this despite the fact that the legislation had not yet made gay marriage "legal" (as if the Constitution could legally give the courts the right to change standard legal definitions the way a lady changes hairstyles).
For this and other reasons (his $50 abortion as part of Romneycare), I am not ready to join Matt Barber and recommend that you go ahead and vote against your consciences or your Christian principles. It really isn't that simple if you are a believer. You know you are supposed to stand alone, it is part of the deal. And so is persecution in the event Obama turns all his wrath against Christians next term. Some will not flinch and will say with Paul:
I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to do that which I've committed unto Him against that day.
In other words, come what may, I am taking my stand here and now. I am on God's side. All they can do is kill the body, not the soul.
At any rate, I can fully understand that this billionaire in the story linked below might think the GOP could become THE gay party. He probably knows in advance what Romney has in mind for us.
I can easily see why people might say: The GOP can do whatever it darned well pleases, but leave me out. Are you listening, RNC? You may not own us after all.
