Gay Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger gets a rough welcome in southern Utah
Yahoo! News ^ | June 14, 2012 | Chris Moody

Although Mitt Romney has virtually locked up the Republican presidential nomination and all of his serious challengers have conceded the race, presidential candidate Fred Karger is still out on the trail campaigning.

Karger, a gay Republican running an issues-based campaign to change attitudes within the GOP about same-sex marriage, took his efforts last week to Utah, which holds the nation's last primary election, on June 26.

Karger spent four days in the state, meeting with local Republican leaders and urging the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to stop funding efforts against gay marriage. (Prior to launching his presidential bid, Karger founded a group called "Californians Against Hate," which focused on Mormon involvement in the campaign to pass Proposition 8, a ballot initiative passed in 2008 banned same-sex marriage.)

During his visit to Utah, Karger met with Washington County Republican Party Chairman Willie Billings, who Karger said was "welcoming" and "friendly." After their meeting, which was first reported by the Los Angeles Times, Karger gave Billings some campaign paraphernalia, including a Frisbee and a T-Shirt. When Billings brought the souvenirs home, however, his wife, Nanette Billings, threw them in the garbage and fired off an email to Karger, calling him "a radical idiot" and saying

Why would anyone vote for a “man” who leads with his degenerate proclivities?

If not for the 22nd Ammendment, Bill Clinton might STILL be president...

His anti-God worldview isn’t American-—it belongs in some Marxist/pagan/earth worshipping country—not a country built on the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.

We were built on the idea of “Higher Law”-—God’s, not Barney Frank. He is advocating changing the whole Christian worldview of America-—from God to paganism.

It won’t work-—Rule of Law is based on Virtue—Justice. It is where Just Law comes from and he is ejecting Virtue and inserting Vice as “Good”. Unjust Law promotes Vice. Only Just Laws promote Virtue—ALWAYS—otherwise the Laws are unjust and unconstitutional. Sodomy promotion is evil. So is baby-killing. We know these behaviors are evil because they are unnatural and destroy life or bodies. It is Satanic.

He wants to change the Christian Paradigm which made us exceptional, into a pagan worldview which has always led to nihilism—disintegration of cultures.

This is a repulsive, barf-worthy non-story. Perhaps more vomitous is how Yahoo “News” gave this item such prominent placement on their site.

Decades ago the Communists planned to infiltrate American institutions and take them over from within.

A couple decades ago I remember reading about Lib/Dem plans following that model (or continuing it might be a better way to put it) to specifically target the Republican Party. Guys like this are the result.

We have a number of ‘republicans’ in the last several elections advocating the overthrow of the traditional planks of the party platform, so what else can one conclude? I remember working with a ‘republican’ at a newspaper who flatly refused to accept that such machinations were happening. He sounded just like the libs who scoffed at McCarthy.

Today it’s not just the candidates. The entire machine of the GOP is feted with liberals, homosexuals and communists. One need only look at their direction, policies, public statements and compare it to the following...

Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Romney is for homosexuals in the military. Romney is
for homosexual adoption. Why is anyone upset?

Why is Romney the conservative candidate for President?

There’s a word, Sister Lucia of Fatima fame called it “diabolical disorientation.”

First....Can anyone confirm for me this poster is suggesting that he will lead us out of an Afghanist society entrenched against homosexuality and pro-choice into a new light?

If so, some may know I work as contractor in Afghanistan and I have a unique view into daily life here, details, of which, I’m duty bound to not reveal.

But, in general terms, homosexuality here is open, frequent, and NOT suppressed in the least.

Let’s not mention, beastiality and pedophilia.

In terms of sexuality, they trump any suggestions Fred Karger is foisting upon the voter via this poster.

Don’t know about the pro-choice here though.

Pro-choice: If a microbe is found on Mars, or anyother planet, it will be hailed as LIFE. Yet, a fetus is not. That microbe would be handled with the utmost care and reverence.....not the fetus.

Aside from what you mentioned, in a secular sense, if you believe in a God, you have to also believe God’s laws are manifest in his creation of nature and are impossible for man to transcend.

Nature does not require human permission...

All men are born of a woman and every living thing dies.

This idea that ‘thou shalt marry and be given in marriage’ is corrupt and degenerate.

It is an impossible immortality of a kind (i.e., eternal love), but not of the persons of men.

A lot of self-proclaimed Biblical “experts” continue on the same path of error in their arguments and ignore the very foundation of the Bible and all of creation - - Genesis.

Even the idea of evolution is confirmed by Genesis - - ALL MEN ARE BORN OF A WOMAN.

If he’s gay, then he isn’t a Republican, he’s a RINO.
