    Bishop Harry Jackson wants GOP to focus on marriage

    During a panel titled “Traditional Marriage and Society,” Jackson said the conservative movement has “an opportunity to engage a multi-racial, multi-cultural group of people,” but only if the Republican Party doesn’t throw social issues “under the bus.”

    “Whether I like the GOP or not, whether I like Republicans or not, there is no other party now that really is advocating any of the social issues that are consistent with my faith,” Jackson said.

    Faulkner, who campaigned against Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), said conservatives need to develop their message to racial minorities because they are ready to support the conservative movement.

    “As I campaigned, especially in Latino churches, I was required before the pastor would allow me to speak to give my position on same-sex marriage and on abortion,” Faulkner said. “So they are staunch conservatives, probably more conservative than we are.”

    Jackson spoke out against the advancement of marriage rights for gay couples and said it would interfere with parents’ rights in children’s education.

    Well this kind of thing should help the GOProud crowd be all the more interested in voting Repub. because after all, they are so open to gay's and their social interests/concerns in our country.
