MassResistence: Mitt Romney Is Really Pro-Gay Rights

Get the feeling those Religious Right Christians just can’t stand Mormon Mitt Romney? A Christian-based press release was distributed Wednesday touting a new book – Mitt Romney’s Deception – that claims to be a “thorough history of the former Governor’s shocking (but under-reported) record on “gay rights” and “gay marriage” in Massachusetts.” The author: “Amy Contrada holds a B.A. summa cum laude (Tufts University), an M.A.T. (Brown University), a Diploma in Violin Making, and attended Oberlin Conservatory. She is a 40-year resident of Massachusetts.” And the kicker: “Since 2004, she has been a researcher, reporter, writer, and blogger for the pro-family organization MassResistance.” Folks may remember MassResistance as the wing-nuts who were imported to fight for Prop 8.

Here’s a snippet from the press release and the trailer:

The book details Romney’s promises to homosexual activists, his resulting promotion of “gay rights” and unconstitutional implementation of “gay marriage,” and his support for sexual-radical programs in the Massachusetts schools. The outrages Romney failed to halt set horrible precedents for radical leftist victories nationwide. Contrary to his claim that he defended marriage, the Constitution, traditional values, and religious freedom, he actually undermined them. ??In addition, the book places Romney’s actions within the broader history of how “gay marriage” and the homosexual agenda in the schools came to Massachusetts — and ultimately to the rest of the country. It is a unique resource written by a pro-family activist on the frontlines of the culture war in Massachusetts. ??See book trailer here. ??Contrada’s research will prove invaluable in evaluating Mitt Romney as a Presidential candidate.

OK. So this sounds like more right-wing crap to discredit the man using their favorite wedge issue, TEH GAYS! When it's really more deception on their part because he's not a christianist! Ultimately it doesn't really matter because the way he flips/flops on everything, he'll probably throw us under the bus the first chance he gets...

Can't disagree Joe. In Iowa, the justices there could find no reasoning in the state Constitution not to treat gay couples equally, so therefore marriage for gay couples was legally acceptable.

And then NOM came in and campaigned to have the only justices up for retention voting to be ousted because of their 'activist legislating from the bench in favor of a pro homosexual agenda'.

Their decision wasn't pro gay, it was PRO CONSTITUTION. As it should be.
But of course, NOM et al, are truth repellent and wouldn't be honest about THAT.
