The President has made history. On May 9, 2012, Barack Obama endorsed gay marriage. He is the first American president, ever, to take such a position. What a sad day indeed, when our national leader opened the door to infamy!
Should America choose to agree with the President, then God will have to apologize to the ancient citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah!
There have been many who have counseled me to dodge this topic. But then, what good would my word be if I waffled at the first hint of
pressure? How would that give you any confidence in sending me to Congress?
Throughout my campaign, I’ve consistently maintained a staunch support for the institution of marriage, which is the legal union between one man and one woman. Now that this view is being challenged by the President, it is the absolutely worst time for me to back away from standing up for what’s right!
Can I even consider the option of silence? No! Since when did being politically correct become the standard by which we should measure the Ten Commandments or the Constitution?
It’s not my charge, nor will it ever be, to appease the crowds.
You want a Congressman who will represent you. When the pressure comes, and it will come hard and heavy, you need peace of mind, knowing that the man you send to Capitol Hill will speak and vote on your behalf. I’ve listened to you…at Town Hall Meetings, on the street, at churches,
in schools, at rallies and community events. You’ve voiced your concerns about the moral decline of our country. You’ve shared your hopes of returning America to the Constitutional and moral standards on which she was founded. Let me reassure you… I’ve heard you. And when you elect me to be your Congressman, I will faithfully represent you and steadfastly fight for all that is right!
Join me in this worthy battle. With your vote, together, we can and must defend marriage!
