A pro-family activist who works to expose the truth about homosexuality is praising Congressman Randy Forbes for suggesting that the GOP shouldn't be funding the campaign of some homosexual candidates. 

Politico reports the Virginia Republican has waged a lengthy crusade to convince his colleagues and the National Republican Congressional Committee leadership they shouldn't back some of the party's gay congressional candidates.

Forbes, Randy (R-VA)Two openly homosexual candidates are vying for seats held by Democrats. Richard Tisei, who narrowly lost a congressional bid in 2012, is running again in 2014. In San Diego, former city councilman Carl DeMaio is also challenging a Democratic incumbent. 

Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, says Rep. Forbes understands that open homosexual candidates are basically open homosexual advocates within the Republican Party.  

LaBarbera, Peter"The Republican party platform is opposed for the most part to homosexual activism, especially gay so-called marriage," says LaBarbera. "So Forbes understands that the Republican Party should not be in the business of promoting candidates that are going to promote sexual immorality."

LaBarbera says he is disappointed that many other prominent Republicans don't have a problem with "gay" GOP candidates. 

"It's disappointing to see House Speaker Boehner and other prominent Republicans backing openly homosexual candidates because these candidates are not going to serve the interest of the Republican Party if the party still claims to be pro-family," the family advocate tells OneNewsNow.

LaBarbera says the Republican Party is never going to "out gay" the Democratic Party, so it is foolhardy for Republicans to think they can a lot win votes by going "pro-gay."
