Book Description

This is an excerpt from the 2011 print edition, “MITT ROMNEY’S DECEPTION: His Stealth Promotion of ‘Gay Rights’ and ‘Gay Marriage’ in Massachusetts” by Amy L. Contrada (available at Amazon). Only a few minor changes have been made from that edition, and a brief commentary from November 2011 has been added.

The focus of these chapters is the constitutional crisis of “gay marriage” in Massachusetts (2002-2006) and Governor Mitt Romney’s lack of leadership. While candidate Romney is now pledging to appoint only strict constitutionalists to the federal bench, as Governor he unconstitutionally enforced a Massachusetts high court ruling – enabling the judicial activism he now says he opposes. Despite his claims that he did all he could to protect marriage, Romney’s failure to uphold the Massachusetts Constitution resulted in the illegal issuance of null-and-void marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Further, he had failed to support a strong, early marriage amendment proposal, and his later assurances that a constitutional amendment was sure to pass proved wrong.

This Kindle edition includes almost 300 detailed endnotes with live links, and over 50 exclusive color photographs.

(See “MITT ROMNEY'S DECEPTION” for full details on Romney’s admitted support of “gay rights." It inclues a compendium of his public statements, a review of his record as Governor promoting that cause, and the story of his support for radical homosexual and transgender programs in the Massachusetts public schools.)

Mitt Romney’s record is not one conservatives can support.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story the media isn't covering January 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What Mitt Romney did as Massachusetts governor was not accidental - it was purposeful. Romney allowed for the establishment of homosexual "marriage," therefore winning for himself the title of the "Father of gay 'marriage.'"

Too few social conservatives know the truth. Amy Contrada's new book tells the story that Republican primary voters especially need to hear. We're all used to politicians lying. I'm afraid Mitt's version of this episode does not match the facts.
