Gingrich Platform Includes Presidential Commission to Protect Rights of Pro-Marriage Supporters

 

This is a testament to the success of our (and your!) efforts to encourage the GOP Presidential candidates to be marriage champions.

On Newt Gingrich's campaign website, he proposes a Presidential Commission on Religious Freedom which, among other things, would investigate:

#2 -- The extent to which schools from primary to university level are discriminating against religious viewpoints, restricting religious expression, or forcing students to violate their conscience by forcibly imposing beliefs about sexual orientation, gender, same sex “marriage” and abortion, to which students have constitutionally protected religious objections.

#6 -- The extent to which individuals have been harassed or threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if needed.

#8 -- The impact on religious freedom of same-sex “marriage” and non-discrimination laws, including the rights of individuals, businesses and religious institutions that have a conscientious objection to providing or engaging in services that support values they oppose.

Obviously the need for these proposals will be clear to our loyal supporters, and especially our regular NOM blog readers!
