Republican National Committee to Vote on Resolution Affirming Traditional Marriage Stance
Christian Post ^ | 04/11/2013 | By Katherine Weber

Posted on 04/12/2013 9:06:26 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Members of the Republican National Committee will gather in Los Angeles on Friday for their spring meeting and vote on a resolution to continue their opposition to same-sex marriage.

The resolution is expected to pass by an overwhelming majority, according to Politico. Although the conservative party has seen some dissidents, predominant GOP leaders still believe that marriage should be defined as being between one man and one woman.

A copy of the "Resolution for Marriage and Children 2013" bears a striking similarity to the 2012 Republican Party's platform regarding same-sex marriage. The resolution states that, among other things, "the Republican National Committee affirms its support for marriage as the union of one man and one woman and as the optimum environment in which to raise healthy children for the future of America."

The resolution also encourages members of the committee to implore "the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the sanctity of marriage in its rulings on California's Proposition 8 and the Federal Defense of Marriage Act."

The RNC is reportedly holding Friday's resolution vote in response to the recent "autopsy" report released by the committee, which sought to dissect what went wrong for the Republican Party during the 2012 presidential election.

The 100-page report suggested that the party adopt a more "inclusive" tone regarding social issues, such as same-sex marriage, in order to attract the vote of younger generations.

Although some Republicans found fault with the diction of the report, arguing that it hinted the GOP should change its stance on same-sex marriage, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus confirmed that the party does not intend to change its platform regarding the issue.

"To be clear, our principles our sound, our principles are not old rusty thoughts in some book," Priebus said after unveiling the report, as reported by ABC News. "I think our policies are sound, but I think in many ways the way we communicate can be a real problem," the chair added.

In preparation for the RNC Spring Convention, this week several conservative leaders signed a letter addressed to chairman Priebus urging him and the RNC to maintain their stance on social issues.

"We respectfully warn GOP Leadership that an abandonment of its principles will necessarily result in the abandonment of our constituents to their support," the letter, which was provided to and verified by NBC News, warned.

Recently, two GOP senators, Rob Portman of Ohio and Mark Kirk of Illinois, both voiced their support for same-sex marriage.

The Supreme Court is currently deciding on two cases relating to same-sex marriage, California's ban on same-sex marriage and the Defense of Marriage Act. The RNC's Spring Convention began Thursday at the Lowe's Hotel in Hollywood, Calif., and will conclude on Saturday.

No, it does not. We need all fractions of the party to become united. First step, then they need to do more though. Confirm 2nd amendment rights as well. You will not win a national election without having the moral component. Too many people, will not forgive candidates for past marriages/mistakes they have made in their lives.. as we see time and time again. I can over look man/ wife marital issues, many cannot.

The real reason we need the 2nd amendment is a last resort against the communist gaystapo left and their statist agenda.

Becoming united with this party that continually moves to the left in order to join with their pals the DemocRATs is enough to move me, and many others, into a legitimate third party.

What kind of mutated PCP are you mainlining?
The faggots are all about "backseats". However, defending normal cultural values can NEVER take a back seat.

What's insane is that it even needs to be voted on in the first place. The world is upside down.

For the first time I am genuinely entertaining dumping all connections to the GOP. I have been mocking “turd party” trolls around here for over a decade, but I may have to eat some crow. The GOP is weak and cowardly, and I do not associate with weakness and cowardice.

I don’t think it’s popular opinion at all. If so, why has it lost the popular vote 32 times in the states it was voted on?

Well..until a powerful group or persons go national and claim the republican party left them to where they are beginning a third party, we have to work hard to fire these people. Look at what they have done to us. They deserve to be creamed/removed from their office in the next election. We can’t let them get away with this. I would leave today, if a Palin or a Cruz type who was authentic in promoting to do so. Until Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh decide to dump the party, or a group of patriotic citizens, it’s no other thing to do. We have to get them fired. We have time to find new people to run against them. If we don’t get this right in 2014, the left will march right on.

We have to also be thankful that people are seeing that the Gop-e work against us. We have to lead them. I don’t have the answers, just know enough we all have to balance all of these things and keep our moral compass which brings integrity to the government system. We have a great system/ the problem is the corruption and people pushing an agenda for certain groups/the making of a govt larger. If we can ever get on track, and get a right republican president, that person will have to undo Obama’s overreaches.

Yay!

But pro-forma statements, delivered under political duress, are not nearly enough.

I won’t soon forget the four states last election in which the Democrats pulled out every stop for their faux “marriage” agenda, while the Romney Republican Party COMPLETELY STOOD DOWN.

I guess it is only popular to the extent of what we see expressed in the public opinion polls. Today in Newsmax it was reported that according to the latest WSJ poll, the majority of Americans now support same sex marriage. Further, last November, for the first time, a number of states (all solid blue of course) did approve same sex marriage on ballot initiatives. Finally, although Prop 8 (defining marriage between one man and one woman) passed narrowly here in CA in 2008, I don’t think it would pass again, as the state has even moved even further to the Left since that vote was taken. Same sex marriage is now viewed by most in California as basic civil right and nothing short of sacrosanct.

I think approval is going in the wrong direction. We need to keep on fighting, but it may be inevitable. Their constant barrage on television sways the weak minded. Also, getting to the kids in school early is sick but effective.

What do you expect, people voted for gay marriage/romneycare Romney fell right into the Gop’s mindset/ they voted for this acceptance (not really, most were afraid of Obama). Some, even with fear, couldn't support Mitt's governance. Now, we see people in the base saying that if you change the platform on marriage; we are gone w/ no grassroots support. This is nothing more than remnants of having a northeastern liberal as the face of that party. Yes, to those who likes him, he knew business though the other things trumped him to win. So, now it's clean up and trying to pull them back as a party to where they need to be. People in this party have to stop trying to make others think that they are not a bigot or a racist. Stand your views to the party platform and move on. Most Libs will never see you other than being a bigot.

" Bucking popular opinion and affirming traditional values is not popular these days!!!!!!"

The age of family and nation first has been replaced by the age of pleasure first [hedonism]. Our politics of 'freedom' provides the fertile ground. 'We are free', 'We have rights' - We can do what we want. The 'common good' is passe. Legality has replaced morality. Sacrifice is stupid. Religion has forgotten sin. Man has triumphed. Life is good. I hope it doesn't end.

Right on Christie. Destruction of the family and our Judeo-Christian principles are a goal of the leftwingers.
Anyone that believes in the bible or is a Christian cannot expect a priest or preacher to unite gays in Holy Matrimony. I am not opposed to civil unions between gays but marriage is another ballgame.
Also, take note how much steam the secular movement is making in regards to traditional Christian holidays. Either we preserve America’s Judeo-Christian heritage or move towards Sodom and gommorah

As usual, the RNC is out of step with America and out of step with their rapidly shrinking base.

At this point, IMO, they have made themselves so irrelevant that I don't really think anyone cares!

I thought every man woman and child had "civil rights" in America....are there separate civil rights for the gay man or woman? Aren't my rights just as equal? Don't the votes against gay marriage by the majority in many states and now overturned for the few, isn't that unfair also against election laws? Caving in on one's beliefs shows a desperateness of sick minds...imho.

Really? Try comparing his votes (and voting record ratings by various conservative and liberal organizations) with those of the other Illinois Senator (Democrat Dick Durban).

Try to do some investigation before making unfounded statements about Republican you’d like to defeat and have replaced with a Democrat.

Hmmm. I could have sworn I specifically said "a Democrat", rather than specifically "Democrat Dick Durbin". There are numerous "moderate Democrats" with positions similar to Kirk, and is some cases even less liberal. Mark Kirk is to the left of many card-carrying Chicago Democrats on social isseus, for example. Hell, you want me to compare him to Durbin, even Durbin's record on abortion when he was a Congressman was much more conservative than "Republican" Mark Kirk's was.

>> Try to do some investigation before making unfounded statements about Republican you’d like to defeat <<

Here's a little investigation you can do. Ask ANY voter in America to correctly identify they party affiliation of a U.S. Senator who:

has an F- rating from the NRA, a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood (including voting YES in favor of partial birth abortion), is rated MORE LIBERAL than Obama on environmental issues by the Sierra Club, opposed the surge in Iraq, supports gay marriage, supported Elena Kagan for SCOTUS, is obsessed with spending more money on "embryonic stem cell research", voted AGAINST making the Bush tax cuts permanent, voted for Cap n' Trade, voted NO on ANWR drilling, voted NO on allowing school prayer, co-sponsored signing on to UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, sponsored the federal ”hate crimes” bill, voted YES to approve a $140,000 earmark for ACORN’s New York office, voted YES to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, OPPOSES Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigration, and accepted $1,000 from Obama's pal Tony Rezko in 2008.

I guarantee you that 95% of the voters would assume a Senator with that type of record is a Democrat. I just described Mark Kirk's record 100% accurately.

>> and have replaced with a Democrat. <<

Nice job putting words in my mouth. I want Kirk replaced with a conservative Republican, not a "Democrat". Though I'm sure you'd happily support any Democrat in the Senate right now if they put an "R" next to their name, since you have no problem when Kirk votes like them.

I’m not attempting to imply that Kirk is a conservative by any means. And I wouldn’t want to recommend him as a prom date.

However there are some votes (such as when picking the Senate Majority Leader or protecting US sovereignty - http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3007232/posts ) where I’d much rather have him as a Senator from Illinois than have another Democrat replacing him and voting like Dick Durbin. In the very strong Republican year of 2010, Kirk won his Senate seat with less than a majority of the vote (thanks partially to a Green Party candidate).

So, on the RINO removal front, I’m saving my ammunition, time and very limited funds to devote to efforts to get rid of Senators such as Lindsey Graham where we could almost certainly replace the RINO with a true conservative after that conservative defeated the RINO in the primary.

What I’m looking forward to in 2014 is for conservatives to be able to say “mission accomplished” upon the removal of Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. I just don’t like to see things that are counterproductive to those efforts advanced—particularly things that cause us to take our eyes off of the prize.

Same argument used by conservatives who urged everyone to vote for Arlen Specter in 2004. "At least he's not a Democrat!" Then Specter defected to the Dems and made it official. Kirk would switch parties too, if he "needed" too. RINOs like him would drive over their own mother if it got them fawning coverage from the MSM.

>> In the very strong Republican year of 2010, Kirk won his Senate seat with less than a majority of the vote (thanks partially to a Green Party candidate). <<

Yeah, the kool-aid drinkers will tell us it's because Kirk "worked harder" in the suburbs than the conservative candidate for Governor, though every single voter I know like myself who actually LIVES in the suburbs (not counting the 10% of the suburbs in Kirk's congressional district) never ONCE saw Kirk or "his people" knock on doors here or lift a finger to have any kind of ground game here. You don't suppose vote fraud caused the conservative to lose? Nahhhhhhhhhh. It's because RINOs are magically more electable and can "win" more votes by never campaigning.

>> So, on the RINO removal front, I’m saving my ammunition, time and very limited funds to devote to efforts to get rid of Senators such as Lindsey Graham where we could almost certainly replace the RINO with a true conservative after that conservative defeated the RINO in the primary. <<

Ah, the tired of "we should only go after RINOs in "red states" talking points. ::YAWN:: You guys break you own "rules" anyway, by gushing over GOP senators in "safe" states who go wobbly on us anyway (no one lifted a finger to challenge John Thune in the primary after he stabbed us in the back, a bunch of you guys wanted to give him a promote to President instead). Fire all your ammo at Lindsey Graham if it makes you feel better, but in the long run it won't change things much because Kirk is 10X worse. Even on his worse days, Graham didn't go around worshiping Planned Parenthood and demanding we surrender in Iraq. You are failing to see the big picture. If we took advice from conervatives like you, we'd never get a conservative majority because MOST states in this country voted for Obama so any Republican we run from states can make the excuse they're just voting how the voters want them to.

Until marriage is defined as a reproductive union between one man and one woman it ain’t really marriage. Its not a union that is worth defending or supporting.

We need to recreate real marriage in our churches and in our communities. A union that is about family(children) and not self-serving feelings of the parents.

Then it’s settled. I’ll focus my attention on replacing squishes such as Graham with true conservatives and you can focus your attention on defeating RINOs and replacing them with “whatever”.

Of course I suspect the chances are fair that you’ll come out later in 2014 to defend Graham against his conservative opponents (after all, it appears that you’ve already started down that road just a bit).

Bottom line is I agree with Ronald Reagan that someone who is with me 80% of the time is not my enemy. I'd certainly support someone more conservative than Graham in the primary, but if it was him vs. a liberal RAT, I'd take him.

You, on the other hand, seem to have it backwards. You think people who agree with you 20% of the time are your friend, and people who agree with you 80% of the time are your enemy. The fact Kirk does something decent now and then and is not as liberal as Durbin doesn't make him an ally of ours, it just him a slightly less socialist liberal Obama ally who runs for office with an "R" next to his name.
