MassResistance fires back

MassResistance fires back

After accused of being out of the mainstream of pro-lifers and social conservatives in Massachusetts (as few as there are) with its criticisms of Mitt Romney on gay marriage and abortion, MassResistance fires back with the release of a letter detailing Romney’s failings. The group said it was releasing a letter today that it sent to Romney in December and which was signed by a diverse group of 44 pro-family and conservative leaders, including Paul Weyrich, Free Congress Foundation; Robert H. Knight, veteran Washington political activist and a draftsman of the federal Defense of Marriage Act; Linda Harvey, Mission America; Rev. Ted Pike, National Prayer Network; Randy Thomasson, Campaign for Children and Families; Peter LaBarbera, Americans for Truth; Dr. Chuck Baldwin, radio host and columnist; Paul Likoudis, The Wanderer; Phil Lawler, Catholic World News; David E. Smith, Illinois Family Institute; Michael Heath, Christian Civic League of Maine; Gary Glenn, American Family Association of Michigan; Joe Glover, Family Policy Network; and Bill Cotter, Operation Rescue Boston. That’s a pretty broad-based and mainstream group of prominent pro-lifers and social conservatives.

MassResistance also repeats its claims that Romney exceeded his legal authority by ordering city and town clerks to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples without the marriage statute in Massachusetts ever having been changed. They also link to the blog of “Robert Paine,” a pseudonymous attorney who has extensively detailed the objections to Romney’s actions (and who was a frequent commenter at Bettnet on this issue).

The letter itself is apparently not available as I write this yet. Maybe later today.

[Update: The letter is now available online as a PDF.]
