GOP Rebranding
Those wacky Republicans! They're working to change how they're perceived but not their actual objectionable policies and positions.

Social conservatives warn Priebus they could abandon GOP

Social conservatives warn Priebus they could abandon GOP | GOP Rebranding | Scoop.it

A group of high-profile social conservatives warned Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus in a letter this week that their supporters could abandon the GOP if the party seeks to change its position on social issues, particularly same-sex marriage. 

Thirteen social conservatives, representing various influential groups, wrote Priebus ahead of the RNC's quarterly meeting this week in Los Angeles to sternly rebuke the conclusions of a post-election report that advised Republican elected officials to adopt a softer tone toward social issues. 

"We respectfully warn GOP Leadership that an abandonment of its principles will necessarily result in the abandonment of our constituents to their support," concludes the letter, which was obtained by and independently verified by NBC News in advance of the meeting this week. 

The letter further asks GOP committeemen to pass a resolution at their meeting this week re-affirming the party's 2012 national platform, which includes language calling for bans on abortion and same-sex marriage.

The Ryno's curator insight, April 11, 2013 5:59 PM

Social Conservatives always forget about how our Constitution specifically establishes SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE; government stays out of religion and religion stays out of government. This isn't a negative reflection of religion, but rather a protection of religion and a recognization that it has no place in debate of our laws.

Our Founding Fathers recognized this basic truth and put it in the FIRST amendment (you know the one that was more important and powerful than that 2nd amendment they always fight so hard to protect). Government isnt supposed to hinder religion, nor support one religion over the other. So why do Social conservatives insist that the US be run by strict Christian laws?

Religion is a beautiful guide for your personal life, not the government.  It's wonderful to live your life with a strict "moral" guidelines, but stop insisting that everyone else adopt your personal code of right and wrong in their own personal lives.

I say, go for it, Social Conservatives. Nothing would make me happier than to have the GOP even more fractious than it is already.
