NOM determined to divide GOP, define it by discrimination

by Jeremy Hooper

In what is essentially a fundraising pitch on behalf of Kirk Jorgensen, a conservative Republican running for a House seat in California's 52nd district, the National Organization For Marriage goes all-out nuclear against openly gay challenger Carl DeMaio and the idea of a moderate Republican party in general. NOM writes:

Redefining marriage. Medical marijuana. Force the Republican Party to abandon social issues and focus national policies on what big corporations want.

DeMaio isn't the first RINO to run for the US House of Representatives, but it sure is disappointing to see so many establishment Republican leaders in Washington line up to help him. They are so desperate to be seen as "tolerant" and "inclusive" in supporting a homosexual candidate like DeMaio that they are willing to abandon any semblance of principle.

But think about the message they are sending: If a guy like Carl DeMaio can win as a Republican, then what the heck does being a Republican mean?

FULL: The Soul of the Republican Party [NOM]

What message are they sending? Um, I don't know—maybe that Republicans actually like winning national elections and having a party that might be viable in the decidedly gay-accepting future?

But you keep driving that wedge and casting out anyone who doesn't believe like you all, NOM. It's working out so well (for us).
