Art Moore. Military Guy. Good looking single dude. Some of my closest friends and allies in politics either gave Art a long look or they are publicly endorsing him.
I read today’s interview in the Sacramento Bee with Art Moore where he clearly came out in favor of Same-Sex Marriage. This was not a misprint. This either means that Art has attempted to be on both sides of the issue during the campaign or has flip flopped. Whichever it is, it is clear now.
17 years ago, I joined CRA because I was and am Pro-Life. The thought of debating the foundations of society was unheard of – even when I was an anthropology major.
The Family Research Council had this to say in an email today about the SCOTUS side-stepping 5 marriage cases:
… if liberals should be anything, it’s worried. When it comes to marriage, time is not on their side. Deep down, the Left knows it needed the Court to force same-sex “marriage” on America before more people saw the fallout for Christians like Aaron and Melissa Klein. Or sportscasters like Craig James. Or CEOs like Brandon Eich. Ask them if same-sex “marriage” is just about two people who love each other. For them, it was about losing their business, their livelihood, and their freedom.
If the Supreme Court thinks America isn’t ready for same-sex “marriage,” they’re right. As more states are forced to recognize it, people will see the ensuing attacks on religious freedom. They’ll feel the wedge driven between parents and their children when school curriculum is changed to contradict the morals moms and dads are teaching at home. They’ll shudder as more people lose their jobs because they refuse to celebrate (not just tolerate) same-sex “marriage.” Maybe then they’ll realize that the true goal is not about the marriage altar — but fundamentally altering society.
It is pretty much well-known that I am not a charter member of the Tom McClintock fan club. Tom McClintock is vulnerable only because of personality issues and his reticence to engage with people in local government. We’ve heard this ad-naseum.
But, what Tom McClintock lacks in engaging with local government, he has in spades when it comes to understanding the nature of our freedom. Homosexual marriage was never about who you love. It is about removing any and all opposition to their lifestyle by force. It is actually a religious freedom issue.
Art Moore fought to defend our freedom, yet is willing to surrender religious freedom. I like Art on a personal level. I intend to work with him for years to come if he chooses to stay involved in politics at the local level. But, I need a congressman that understands our freedom and how fragile it is, but most importantly the reasons why.
With his comments in the Bee, Art Moore has proven that he is not ready to be a Congressman yet. At this point, I prefer to stick with the guy I know. I am voting for McClintock.
