Here’s an example of why some conservative Christians don’t trust Mitt Romney to be a champion on the social issues. This is what he said to the NAACP yesterday:
"With 90 percent of African-Americans voting for Democrats, some of you may wonder why a Republican would bother to campaign in the African American community, and to address the NAACP. Of course, one reason is that I hope to represent all Americans, of every race, creed, or sexual orientation, from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between.”
Sounds great right? Back up. Let me narrow that phrase down for you:
“I hope to represent all Americans, of every race, creed or sexual orientation.”
Despite affirming traditional marriage in his speech, he just defined sexual orientation as a separate class of people just like the gay activists have been trying to do for decades. Romney has bought into the language, which makes conservative Christians question what’s next.
Conservative Christians believe that ALL people in this country should be protected under the law. But to compare sexual orientation to race implies that there is no choice in the matter and it plays right into the hands of homosexual activists.
That's where Romney gets into difficulty.
