Randy Thomasson of SaveCalifornia.com says GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has a record of supporting issues pushed by homosexual activists.

He has also documented the more conservative views of Sen. Ted Cruz. 

"Trump wants a new federal law punishing private business owners for not hiring homosexuals. He wants open homosexuality and transsexuality in the U.S. military," Thomasson says of the billionaire real estate mogul.

Thomasson, Randy (SaveCalifornia.com)The conservative activist says Trump has voiced support for other homosexual causes, too, which are described in a six-page document compiled by Thomasson.

Trump has claimed his views have become more conservative over time but Thomasson quotes Trump from as recently as last year. 

"The decision has been made and that is the law of the land," Trump said last September of the controversial Obergefell v. Hodges decision that struck down state marriage laws nationwide.

“Those who are not parties to the suit are not bound by it,” Cruz told NPR News last year, arguing that the lawsuit only named four states.

Other quotes cited by Thomasson date back to interviews Trump gave in 2000 and 1999, and conservative groups are hammering Trump for espousing those liberal views.

OneNewsNow reported this week that a coalition of pro-life women is urging Iowa pro-lifers to support another candidate besides Trump in next week's caucuses, citing his pro-abortion stance and his demeaning statements about women. A letter condemning Trump was signed by the female leaders.

Trump's campaign website does not describe his views on abortion, homosexual marriage, or other hot-button social issues. 

The campaign website for Cruz, however, describes his support for those conservative issues, including a section devoted to "Religious Liberty."
