A pro-family activist says he disagrees with U.S. House Speaker John Boehner's recent comment that he supports Republican congressional candidates who are openly homosexual.
"Sometimes I think he's been in Washington too long," Phil Burress, chairman of the Ohio-based Citizens for Community Values Action Political Action Committee, says of House Speaker John Boehner.
As reported on OneNewsNow, Virginia Republican Randy Forbes has said the National Republican Congressional Committee leadership should not use the dues of members to fund the campaigns of some openly "gay" GOP congressional candidates. But Speaker Boehner told Politico that his party should support gay Republican congressional hopefuls.
"If you're going to elect people who are self-proclaimed homosexuals, then you're totally ignoring what the Republican Party stands for in its national platform, marriage between one man and one woman," Burress tells OneNewsNow.
Burress observes he has never seen a homosexual in the Republican Party "who does not promote the homosexual agenda," which he says includes same-sex marriage and abortion.
One problem plaguing the GOP is the so-called big tent approach.
"The Democrats have two non-negotiable issues, same-sex marriage and abortion rights," Burress claims. "The Republican Party never talks about their non-negotiable issues because I don't think they have any."
Burress also says it is time for Boehner to be replaced as speaker.
