On January 3, Campaign for Children and Families, a leading West Coast pro-family organization that researches and advocates for the natural family, published its Report Card On the Natural Family. The Report Card summarizes research of each candidate’s published votes, policies, and public statements and documents on issues related to the traditional family. Some of the issues covered in the report include support for the civil marriage right of one man and one woman; support for adoptions by families of both motherand father; support for the protection of boy scouts from the homosexual agenda, and support for the protection of schoolchildren from forced indoctrination and support of homosexuality.
“While all of the leading Republican candidates claim to embrace family values, let the record show that they’re marching to different drummers on marriage rights, adoption, schoolchildren, and the destructive ‘LGBT’ agenda,” said CCF President Randy Thomasson.
What does the record show?
Based on the evidence of candidate support for each and all of the issues considered, the two most family friendly presidential candidates are Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee, both receiving the same score. The highest possible score was eight and both Paul and Huckabee received a seven. John McCain received the next highest rating of four followed by Fred Thompson’s three and only one for Rudy Giuliani. Surprisingly, Mitt Romney flunked the natural family test. He received zero on his report card.
|The highest possible score is 8 and lowest is 0.|
The natural question while reading the report is why the Democrats were left out? The answer is because “the leading Democratic candidates support nearly all of the homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual agenda,” according to Thomasson. Why then waste time and paper reporting on candidates with all zero sum results?
