California Republican Party Endorses 'Save Our Kids' and Protect Marriage Initiatives
SACRAMENTO - The California Republican Party overwhelmingly endorsed the Save Our Kids initiative to overturn SB 777 at their spring convention last weekend.
Republican delegates from all across California gathered for their biannual meeting and showed their strong opposition to Governor Schwarzenegger's signing of the homosexual indoctrination law.
"We are thrilled that the Republican Party is lending its influential support to our important campaign," declared Karen England, executive director for Capitol Resource Family Impact, the proponent of the Save Our Kids initiative. "Special thanks are owed to Assemblyman Bob Huff for presenting the initiative to the delegates and successfully arguing for an endorsement. As soon as we receive title and summary from the attorney general, we will capitalize on this momentum and begin gathering signatures.
The CRP also endorsed the Protect Marriage initiative, which has petitions circulating the state right now.
"The defense of marriage is vital to the stability of our state and nation," stated England. "With these endorsements, the CRP has boldly taken a stand for traditional marriage and the family. We are grateful for their support."
In other good news from the CRP's gathering, delegates approved a platform that maintained its pro- family and pro-life principles. There had been an effort by homosexual activists and "moderates" to strip the party's platform of these important beliefs. "This was an important victory for pro-family voters and candidates," explained England. "The platform contains the beliefs and principles that hold elected officials accountable. Removing the marriage and pro- life principles would alienate millions of voters that care very deeply about these essential issues."
