Are These Republicans Traitors, or Just Clueless?

 


The entire Republican Party owes their electoral success to people of faith, individuals like us who turned out in droves to oppose the leftist agenda of the Democrats and Hillary Clinton. The Democrats demand complete loyalty to their extreme agenda – same-sex 'marriage,' abortion on demand, transgender ideology, virtual elimination of religious liberty, etc. In rejecting the extreme agenda of the left and Democratic leaders, people of faith put their trust in Republicans who said they would deliver on their promises and defend American values.

From Donald J. Trump, to the members of the US Senate, to the members of the House of Representatives, Republican elected officials owe their majority to people of faith, the bedrock base of the Republican Party.

But so far, outside of Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, the Republicans have precious little to show in terms of delivering on their promises.

Worse, late last week, some 23 GOP members of the US House of Representatives opposed an amendment to the defense spending authorization bill to prevent the use of taxpayer funds to pay for sex-change surgeries from transgendered soldiers.

Are these 23 Republicans clueless or, worse, are they traitors to the conservative cause?

First off, the science is clear that there is absolutely no evidence to show that someone can be "trapped in the wrong body." Those who think they are "transgender" actually suffer from a psychological disorder known as gender dysphoria.

Moreover, why in the world should US taxpayers be given the bill because a gender-confused individual joins the military and then demands a sex-change operation? It's insane!

And what's really problematic is that the GOP leadership in the House, including Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, did absolutely nothing to prevent this travesty and betrayal of trust.

If the Republican leadership in Washington does not get their act together soon and begin delivering on their promises to restore American values like marriage and life, they are going to be in for a rude awakening come the 2018 midterm elections. Why would people of faith turn out to vote for incumbent Republicans who do nothing, or worse, betray us?

NOM intends to hold the Republican majority in the House and the Senate accountable for their actions, and the Trump administration as well. We have a detailed plan to do so, but we need your help to be successful.

Will you stand with us and help us with a financial contribution so we have the resources to hold the GOP accountable and fight for the rights of all marriage supporters?

Here is our plan:

  1. Conduct a strong public education campaign supporting NOM's legal team as we prepare to file amicus briefs with the US Supreme Court in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, which holds the potential of achieving a sweeping Court ruling preventing government from targeting people for punishment because they hold fast to the natural, biblical understanding of marriage as one man and one woman...

  2. Hold the Republicans in Congress accountable, including demanding they introduce and move forward with the First Amendment Defense Act to provide protections for people of faith, and demand that GOP members feel the heat when they abandon us to vote for "transgender surgeries" and other policies that violate our values and defy common-sense. (See our petition below.)

  3. Organize tens of thousands of Americans to contact Attorney General Jeff Sessions to demand that the Trump administration move forward with a long-promised Executive Order to protect individuals, pastors, churches and nonprofit groups who believe in traditional marriage from punitive actions against them by the government.

  4. Highlight the utter hate that many on the left have for people who remain firm in their belief that marriage is as God created it – one man and one woman. This includes formally launching our First Freedom Initiative which, among other things, will highlight the animus and dangerous tactics of groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the grossly-misnamed Human Rights Campaign.

Combined, these four priorities form the backbone of NOM's work this summer to protect marriage supporters. But to be successful on any one of these undertakings, let alone our full agenda, we need the strong support of every NOM supporter. Will you be with us?

One of our first acts to begin to hold the GOP in Congress accountable is to launch this petition to the 23 turncoats who just voted for taxpayer funding of sex-change surgeries for the transgendered.

Think about it: the most prominent transgender solider is Bradley Manning (who now goes by Chelsea), a traitor who risked our national security to release highly confidential military intelligence documents. Incredibly, President Obama let Manning out of prison after serving only a fraction of his sentence, and now these 23 Republican Congressmen want taxpayers to pay for sex-change operations for people like Bradley Manning!

Please sign our petition to the 23 Republicans who abandoned taxpayers, people of faith and American values. We will make sure that Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy also receive the petition so that they know that we are not going to sit still for this type of betrayal by Republicans in Congress.

All of us in the pro-family movement worked hard to help elect President Trump and Republican majorities in both the US Senate and the House of Representatives. Now we have to redouble our work to make sure they deliver what they promised. Please give generously at this important time.

Thank you for all that you are doing to help us restore marriage and protect marriage supporters.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
