RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY


By Evelio Perez
It has become so apparent to me that we lost the 2008 presidential elections because we, the Republican electorate nominated the wrong person to challenge the Democratic nominee and eventual winner, Barack Obama for the presidency. Most of us knew that John McCain was over-matched and could not win, and yet we still nominated him. What happened?


In Governor Mitt Romney we had the total package, we had the right man with the deep Christian ethics and values that is identified with the majority of Americans and yet, inside party collusion and a major dislike for the man's faith, gave us John McCain and this embarrassing and humiliating defeat against an inexperienced Socialist.


When we talk of rebuilding the already damaged Republican Party, we must understand why we were and will continue to be defeated if we don't change our destructive and discriminative actions.
Many slanderous statements from many social conservatives ( like Pastor Robert Jeffress ) have been truly embarrassing and unbecoming to our conservative beliefs and not worthy of a true Christian, if these destructive ways of religious discrimination continue, our chances of ever getting qualified and honest people to lead our very fragile republic will become un-reachable.


We had the right man who was willing to sacrifice himself and his family to serve our country to do what he has always done best, but the main problem was that the most qualified person running for the Republican nomination was that he was a Mormon........ in spite of his brilliant abilities, his great accomplishments and his outstanding resume, he was already disqualified to run for the presidency simply because his branch of Christianity was different than some in the majority.


Are we serious in taking back The White House?
Can we finally say no more to the nasty religious bigotry that embarrasses the Republican Party?
Do we have to start a new conservative party where the principles and the ethical standards of Ronald Reagan wont be slapped down?


If we are seriously seeking to rebuild the Republican Party, lets unite with the true Conservative leaders and elect qualified people like Governor Mitt Romney, do yourselves a favor and study his record, see what he has accomplished as a husband and father, the many triumphs in the private sector and the four years as Governor of Massachusetts and you will find that he is the right man for the right historical time to lead us back to victory and prosperity...........
