Six GOP Presidential Candidates PLEDGE To Void LGBT Equality Laws In Their First 100 Days

GOP Anti-LGBT Carson, Rubio, Cruz

Former National Organization for Marriage president and current hate -freelancer Maggie Gallagher-Srivastav, has released a press release stating that six of the Republican party presidential candidates have signed a pledge to sign the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) into law within the first 100 days of their administration that would bar the federal government from acting against anyone who discriminates against LGBT Americans in the guise of “religious liberty.”

From Gallagher’s statement:

“It has become clear that the First Amendment Defense Act is rapidly becoming a signature issue that unifies the GOP. Three out of the four top contenders for the nomination — Carson, Cruz, and Rubio — have pledged to prioritize passing FADA in their first 100 days of office. Additionally, Bush, Graham, Paul, and now for the first time, Donald Trump, have publicly expressed support for FADA. Real, concrete protections for gay marriage dissenters appear to be just one election victory away.

The reported signees are: Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Rick Santorum, and Marco Rubio.

The anti-LGBT hate pledge is the work of Gallagher’s own new American Principles Project, the Family Research Council, and the Heritage Foundation.
