The Only Conservative Candidate Speaking Up For Christianity and Against Gay Marriage in Church
|Pressemitteilung von: i1connect|
|(openPR) - New York, NY – June 29, 2007 – With the tremendous voting power of the Christian Right, and few state constitutional amendments to bring them to the polls, political experts will wonder what will bring them to the polls.
In the current 2008 presidential field, there are many walking contradictions that have very little appeal to the conservative movement.
The first Christian candidate to evaluate is Rudolph Giuliani. He is a born Catholic and attends services regularly.
However, Giuliani believes that while abortion is personally wrong, the government should not make it illegal, hardly a position that sits with evangelicals.
The next leading Christian candidate is Mitt Romney. He is a member of the Mormon Church, but has not been denounced by the evangelical community because of his Mormon faith.
During Romney's term as Governor of Massachusetts, the state became one of the first states to legalize Gay Marriage. During Romney's bid for US Senate, he openly supported the Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts, a group that openly supports Gay Marriage.
As far as the rest of the field is concerned, John McCain has been known as a flip-flopper on many issues. No one really knows what Fred Thompson stands for but he does have a moderate track record.
The rest of the conservative field has yet to draw any media coverage.
However, since the announcement by Michael Bloomberg, more and more Americans are now starting to look at third party candidates.
So i1connect did just that, and looked at third party candidates who embody Christian values and are against Gay Marriage.
During a recent campaign stop, 2008 Presidential Candidate, Daniel Imperato, addressed these very issues.
Imperato declared gay marriage in churches to be an "abomination." He continued by saying that the government ought not to be able to prevent two people from entering into a contract with each other.
"Gay marriage should not be allowed or confirmed in churches. I stand on the grounds that marriage is between a man and a woman," stated Imperato.
However, Imperato does not support a strong federal government and federal intrusion into people's personal lives.
"That does not mean that the federal government should be involved in the lives of personal people. If same sex persons wish to enter into legal contracts that should be within their rights, legally. On that same note, the federal government should not have the right to step into churches and tell our religious leaders who they have to marry by force of law. This is outright wrong, and I will not stand for it," stated Imperato.
Imperato is a "man of faith" when asked about his Christian denomination. He was raised a Catholic, but has embraced the evangelical Christian community, as well as the Messianic Judaic community.
Imperato is also Papal Knight with Honors from Pope John Paul II and the Vatican.
Recently, Imperato has also spoken out against removing religious epithets such as "In God We Trust" from our printed money, and the Ten Commandments from government buildings.
"The fact of the matter is that, the Ten Commandments only promotes good and not evil. We should not be wasting taxpayer money to remove these items, or to protest these items. Displaying the Ten Commandments, or printing "In God We Trust" on money, does not cause anyone any harm," stated Imperato.
In a crowded race of 2008 Presidential Candidates, it is the independent who is blazing a trail amongst Christians and conservatives alike.
As the 2008 Presidential race draws nearer, what better way to bring conservatives and Christians to the polls than to show the parties that turned their backs on them, that the American people have the power by voting for an independent.
