AFTAH Gives RNC Chief Michael Steele 20,000 Reasons NOT to Embrace Divisive Homosexual 'Log Cabin Republican' Agenda

Contact: Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth about Homosexuality, 630-546-4439, [email protected]

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Feb. 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- Americans For Truth (AFTAH) President Peter LaBarbera today urged Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele not to promote the divisive agenda of the homosexual activist group 'Log Cabin Republicans' - which has just 20,000 members nationwide -- at the expense of the huge, grassroots pro-family conservative GOP base.

AFTAH is encouraging Republicans and pro-family citizens nationwide to contact Steele and the RNC to urge them not to sell out the conservative GOP platform by courting an organization that works to undermine traditional marriage and supports anti-religious, pro-homosexual special-rights legislation.  (AFTAH is also launching a parallel effort encouraging pro-life and pro-family Democrats to appeal to their Party to stop promoting a "Culture of Death" agenda.) Steele can be reached at:

"Michael Steele and the GOP need to do the math: it is foolish and impractical to risk alienating millions of pro-family, pro-life, conservative grassroots Republicans to appease a tiny homosexual special interest group with fewer members than the population of Liberal, Kansas," LaBarbera said. "If the Republican Party is to turn itself around, it must reach out aggressively to real, pro-family minorities like Steele himself -- not homosexual activists whose agenda would restrict our precious religious and First Amendment freedoms by using the government to promote aberrant sexual lifestyles."
 
Log Cabin praised Steele as a "Big Tent" Republican who will reach out to its supposedly "mainstream" cause. But LaBarbera said LCR's liberal agenda and rhetorical smears against religious conservatives have more in common with other anti-Christian homosexual activist pressure groups than with the pro-family base of the Republican Party.

"The Log Cabin ideologues are 'gay' activists first and Republicans second," LaBarbera said. "Just look at their current effort - joining fellow homosexual activists on the Left - to reverse Proposition 8, passed by California voters, reinstating marriage as God intended it: between a man and a woman."

Log Cabin Republicans have proudly offered an elitist amicus brief urging the California Supreme Court to overturn Prop 8 - inexplicably calling homosexuality-based "marriage" a "fundamental," constitutional right against all evidence from our nation's history and Judeo-Christian heritage. Polls show Black and Hispanic minorities favored Prop 8 at higher rates than whites.
