LGBT Newspaper Details Romney’s Support Of Gay Agenda
Christian Response Alerts ^ | 1/11/2012 | Frankyork

Posted on 01/12/2012 6:01:51 AM PST by Former Fetus

Bay Windows, an LGBT newspaper in Boston has posted a lengthy article on its site detailing Mitt Romney’s long-time support of the gay political agenda.

The article notes that in 2002, the Romney for Governor Committee authorized campaign flyers that championed “gay pride.”

In 1994, Romney wrote to the Massachusetts Log Cabin Republicans and pledged to be a hero to the LGBT community. Romney is also quoted as saying:

“For some voters it might be enough for me to simply match my opponent’s record in this area. But I believe we can and must do better. If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will.”

“I respect all people regardless of their differences,” Romney told Bay Windows in 1994. “There’s something to be said for having a Republican who supports civil rights in this broader context, including sexual orientation. …I think the gay community needs more support from the Republican party and I would be a voice in the Republican party to foster anti-discrimination efforts.”

Another Romney flip-flop? This is a 2002 flyer that was passed out at Boston Pride:

As a diehard Santorum supporter I've seen/read innumerable posts defending their candidate(s) saying that the social/moral issues are not important this election, that people are voting for a POTUS and not a pope/husband, that the SOCONS are going to lose this election, etc.

And yet, when these folks want to bash somebody they don't like, they're sure fond of going after the social issues.

There is nothing, literally NOTHING, Conservatives can, or should, support romney on. NOTHING. He should be rejected so far into oblivion that he can never come back again. Ever.

The fix is in folks.

If either Romney or Obama is elected we will be left with only one method to regain our freedom.

There is no convincing reason for a conservative republican to vote for Mitt Romney let alone support his candidacy. if Romney and the PTB want to invest hundreds of millions of dollars into a failed election campaign, let them. If they have any sense, they’ll hedge their bets by giving to Obama too because they’re going to have to deal with him for another 4 years.

One of the things that makes America great is we have choices. Take this election for instance. We likely will have a choice between a Ulta-Liberal Rino and a radical marxist.

agree , I am so sick of the GOP and their liberal social issues.
If one is liberal on social issues then vote for libertarian but obviously there is a reason why the primaries start in a north east open primary state and that is to movement for their liberal guy.

How anyone can vote for the sheep in wolf clothing is beyond me.
The other day he said he was for marriage one man and one woman but then goes onto that homosexuals can get kids, homosexuals can serve openly etc.

The snake is trying to be everything due to his desperation of wanting that nomination and then thinking us true conservative will fall into line with him and back him.

Well no frigging chance will I , my family and most I know who are voting.

Those which vote for him are just ignorant and only see the name and the letter after it and are no better than the fools on the left who only see the letter.

Newt needs to stop the Bain issue and go after Romney hard and point out these issues.

It’s time for Newt to push the red buttons on the ICBMs.

It’s time for Perry and Santorum to drop out and line up behind one conservative.

If the big 3 would talk, then they can agree on post-election positions for Santorum and Perry.

Polls say that Newt is running away from Rick & Rick in S. Carolina.

Newt, Perry and Rick are splitting the vote and this needs to stop.

Perry has no chance now and might as well help either Newt or Rick.
But Newt and Rick need to get together and say I will run, you give me your votes and support and one of us will be the VP.

newt is great as a VP because he can go into attack mode against bozo and dopey plus attack the bias media.

Let others do that line of attack IMO.

Newt can point out other issues but right now Rick, Perry and Newt are splitting the vote and this needs sorting out to stop the establishment elitist cross dressing lot.

Oh and FOX makes me sick for their support for their socially liberal man.

I think after SC, that won’t be a problem anymore. Perry and Santorum know that SC is their last stand.

Maybe Rick and Newt can do a deal and one of them drop out and become VP.

Romney needs to be stopped and those who vote for him are just as ignorant as those on the left who only see a D or an R at the end of a name.

Has any male from the Romney family served in the military? Ever? Romney and his sons are six dodgers of military service. And I don´t think anyone in this family has ever served in any American military conflict.

You are right on all accounts. Newt seems to be polling ahead of the other not-Romneys in Florida too and the last Ohio poll (my home-state) I saw had Newt favored 2:1 over Mitt. If we could narrow the race down to Romney versus Newt, Romney would be screwed going into Florida and then into super Tuesday. I think it will be imperative that we give buckeye Republicans a candidate that they seem to strongly favor as opposed to a candidate that they’re not so enthused about because we need to maximize republican turn out in swing states and especially in Ohio if history is any indicator of future events.

I don’t get the support for homosexuals with the the mormon identity. Arent’ mormons highly conservative when it comes to social issues?

Or is he really even a mormon at all?

How do mormons square this with their beliefs?? Always thought they were strictly pro-family, at least the ones I know personally.

What is wrong with Santorum? He has scored higher than Newt in Iowa and NH . He doesn’t have the baggage Newt has. Every time I see Newt’s third wife, I think about the affairs he has had. Any conservative that stays home on election day is giving Obama one half a vote. BO is by far the worst POTUS this country has ever had. We must vote him out.

they are supposed to be and they helped to stop prop 8 but Romney will be anything, hell he’ll be muslim if he thought it would help him.

Just seeing the socially liberal half baked RINO with his family smiling after the OPEN NORTH EAST NEW ENGLAND STATE WIN pissed me off.

We have got to stop splitting the vote and for the love of this country Newt, Rick have go to talk to Newt and I’m sad to say Perry needs to now drop out and help conservatives stop Romney

Sickening. But old news. Willard must be stopped or the republican party has effectively merged with the liberal democrats. No difference at all when this immoral flip-flopper sitting in the White House. He’s a disgrace to everything the republican party stands for.

Willard does not support the teachings of his church and never has. He’s pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, etc, anti-traditional marriage (don’t care what he says). The mormans are pretty conservative. Not Willard. Maybe they think about kicking his liberal ass out of the church.

Nothing is wrong with Santorum except he is fading. I just listened to one news person say that Newt beat Santorum in New Hampshire.

Newt also leads Santorum by a substantial amount in S. Carolina.

I couldn't agree more! The question is, would Newt agree? Does he have the humility to drop out while he's ahead in the polls? This is certainly a test of his patriotism.

Newt is leading Santorum in S Carolina (see here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2831983/posts)

Newt also has money and Santorum doesn’t.

Santorum is also young enough to take a VP slot or a Defense/State Dept cabinet position and be a formidable candidate in 8 years.

The only thing Mitt Romney cares about is being President Mitt Romney.

No principles, whatever gets him elected in the end. I find it sad that we haven’t had somebody smack him down already.

Why aren’t these pro-homo agenda Romney quotes run and repeated around the clock by the conservative candidates? I would venture to guess that many Romney supporters, particularly evangelicals, if you can believe that, are completely ignorant of this position of his. It would be a major game changer.

I think a cult built on sex harems, power, wealth, to war against Christianity, and the men becoming Gods, might not be as conservative as some people think.

Romney himself was a Bishop, and will probably continue to advance in rank inside the religion, he is already a part of the secretive elite, 15%.

I have heard conflicting reports. One says that Gingrich finally ended up on top and the other than Santorum ended up with a few more votes. I’ll have to research to find the exact number of votes if they’re posted anywhere yet. If I find it, I’ll send you the link.
