Et tu, Newt? AFTAH Chides Gingrich for Speaking at Homosexual ‘Log Cabin Republicans’ Dinner-Fundraiser
By Peter LaBarbera
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is scheduled to speak at the annual fundraising dinner for the Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) this Wednesday, September 28. LCR has a long history of promoting homosexualism in the GOP and opposing most of the pro-family planks on “gay” issues that Gingrich supports.
LCR supports homosexual “marriage” and strongly opposes a federal constitutional amendment preserving marriage as between a man and a woman. On July 12, just after the GOP Platform Committee passed a conservative, pro-family platform, LCR president Gregory Angelo sent out a press release/money pitch blasting the Committee:
I will translate Angelo’s “gay”-activist-speak: he’s furious that the GOP:
Surely, Newt Gingrich agrees with those three GOP Platform points that made Angelo “mad as hell”–yet Gingrich is lending his conservative name to Angelo’s socially-left LGBT Republican organization that mocks Bible-believing Christians. Why?
Newt is “growing” (liberals would say)
In a radio interview today on Texas Pastor and radio host Greg Young’s program, “Chosen Generation,” I chided Newt–whom I have long admired–for failing what I call the “Sexual Sin Substitution Test,” by helping LCR’s cause:
To hear the interview, start at 100:30 for the entire segment, and around 118:00 for the portion about Gingrich:
In reality, Gingrich’s gambit–like the Trump/RNC “LGBTQ For Trump” t-shirts and Trump’s choice of openly homosexual businessman Peter Thiel to speak on the biggest night of the Republican convention–is more about remaking the GOP’s image in a “gay”-saturated culture than it is about winning a few thousand homosexual voters. (Besides, homosexual voters are notoriously Democratic.)
Bottom line: savvy yet unprincipled Republicans are catering to post-Christian morality, rather than doing the tough work to actually expand the appeal of their party’s pro-family Platform.
