Welcome to the brand new blog and informational news and commentary site, Republicans For Family Values (RFFV; write us at firstname.lastname@example.org). We are dedicated to supporting pro-natural-family and pro-life values in the GOP, fulfilling the party’s conservative platform. We will stand for the sanctity of life and marriage, and oppose all efforts within the GOP to support counterfeit rights such as the supposed “right to choose” to abort innocent unborn babies, and counterfeit “civil rights” based on changeable homosexual behavior.
RFFV will oppose and expose groups like Republicans For Choice, Republican Unity Coalition and Log Cabin Republicans, which promote destructive anti-life and pro-homosexuality ideologies (masquerading as conservatism) within the GOP.
The RFFV website is published and edited by Peter LaBarbera, longtime pro-family advocate and president of Americans For Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH), based outside Chicago. However, unlike AFTAH, a tax-exempt non-profit group, Republicans For Family Values blog has total freedom to report and comment on the presidential campaign and other races. We shall use this freedom to provide you with critical information on the comments and positions of Republican candidates, but also Democrats, Independents and Libertarians.
You can rest assured that RFFV will be nobody’s political toady in this or any election. LaBarbera has a well-established record of “calling ’em like he sees ’em,” which has earned him plenty of enemies in the liberal Republican camp, but also among some compromising “pro-family” types who, sadly, occasionally put loyalty to the GOP above pro-life and pro-family principles.
Frankly, we are sick and tired of Republicans who count on the support of the GOP’s hard-working, pro-life and pro-family grassroots but then refuse to discuss the pro-life cause or defend the natural family on the campaign trail. Once in office, precious few Republicans energetically and creatively defend these noble values in office. Many Republicans, even some pro-lifers, now see homosexual issues as the “third rail” of American politics — thereby negating their opportunity to stand for truth and religious freedom on that crucial moral issue.
We believe that the Left’s advocacy for killing unborn children and radicaly redefining God-ordained marriage and the natural family unit go hand-in-hand. Defending life without opposing the homosexual lobby’s agenda, or vice versa, hurts both causes and the larger goal of rebuilding a “culture of life” in this nation.
We at Republicans For Family Values believe that God does not favor Republican homosexuality or Republican pro-abortion advocacy any more than the Democrat variety. Having said that, we strongly believe that the media has helped cover up the social radicalism of Democrats like Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and Howard Dean.
The Democratic Party leaders have turned that party into a bastion of pro-homosexuality and pro-abortion advocacy, slighting millions of pro-life and pro-natural-family Democrats in the process. The Republicans would be fools to follow suit. Still, many in the media can barely hide their glee at the prospect of a pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality Republican leading the GOP ticket in 2008.
