GOP of Clark County, NV Removes Traditional Marriage and Pro-Life Abortion From It's Party Platform
LAS VEGAS – The Republican Party of one county in Nevada recently voted to remove its definition of marriage from its party platform, as well as its position on abortion.
Members of the Clark County Republican Party largely agreed to the changes on Saturday, editing out language in the party platform that outlined their belief in marriage being only between a man and a woman. A statement affirming the party’s opposition to abortion and its commitment to life was also removed from the document.
Director Nick Phillips told reporters that the adjustments came as a result of discussions during the party’s committee meeting this weekend in Las Vegas. He said that black and white statements on social issues run contrary to the group’s belief in personal freedom.
Certainly this isn't surprising, as the GOP has been against the true pro-life stance and has been accepting of sodomy for years now. This was merely a formality, and frankly, at least honest. No doubt that the national party will follow suit. This is exactly what the GOP leadership has been demanding, from McCain, to Condaleeza Rice, to Boehner.
This is not what freedom means. What GOP wants is anarchy against the truth; an abandonment of principles and values. What they're after is to be liked by the masses of liberals. Because they ARE liberal.
