GOP in the 21st Century--Back to The Future #2

Here's the second plank in a "Back to the Future" platform that I believe is important for the GOP to develop. This plank deals with social issues. This is one that will probably generate some heat. So be it.

GOP In the 21st Century: Back to The Future

Social Issues

  1. The Republican Party recognizes that social issues are an important part of our party's platform. We reaffirm our commitment to the following:

a. We believe that life begins at the moment of conception. This is nonnegotiable. We affirm our commitment to the life of the unborn in all circumstances. We also resolve to support the Partial Birth Abortion Ban signed by the President. We intend to promote adoption as a preferable alternative to any abortion procedure.

b. We believe that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. We do not recognize civil unions or gay marriage as legitimate alternatives to traditional marriage. Therefore, we resolve to support and reintroduce the Federal Marriage Protection Amendment.

c. We believe that the family is the fundamental unit of all society regardless of race or nationality.

d. We believe that the flag of the United States is a symbol that has withstood the test of time. This symbol has rallied troops from Gettysburg to Mount Suribachi and has created a sense of unity in times of crisis. We therefore reaffirm our support for a constitutional amendment protecting this hallowed symbol of our nation.

e. We believe that religious liberty is a fundamental right granted under our Constitution. All citizens of the United States may practice whatever religion they see fit, provided said exercise does not present a “clear and present danger” to others. We affirm the right of all citizens to be secure in the protection of this free exercise. This includes the display of Nativity scenes in public parks.
