GOProud touts Homocon 2012 as unifying force
Question of the Day
“We just believe a marriage should be between a man and a woman. And that was my position, it was Mitt Romney’s position, Paul Ryan’s position, Bill Clinton’s position and until a few months ago it was Barack Obama’s position. So if that view is out of the mainstream, that means Barack Obama was out of the mainstream when he ran in ‘08.”
For his part, Mr. Barron of GOProud dismissed the platform as “completely and totally meaningless” and argued, as the Harris Poll suggested, that social issues aren’t the most pressing ones.
“Here’s the reality: The platforms have no rights, no rule of law. They are routinely dismissed by candidates within hours of ink drying on them,” Mr. Barron said. “At the end of the day what matters is the position and policies of candidates, not a platform.”
His group has endorsed the Romney-Ryan ticket and he called upon the Log Cabin Republicans, which have yet to follow suit, to do the same: “It would behoove them to act.”
Gay conservatives, he argued, are focused on issues important to everyone and focused on changing the occupant of the White House.
“The conservative movement is committed to traditional values of limiting government, of free-market capitalism, of a strong national defense. That is going to be the future of our party,” he said.
