FRC Takes Aim at Republican Rep. on Gay Rights

Family Research Council Action PAC launched a late radio ad campaign against Republican Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao of New Orleans for his support of gay rights legislation.

Tony Perkins, a former Louisiana legislator who leads the organization, told the Times-Picayune that Cao was the only Republican candidate targeted with an FRC attack ad this fall. The ad ends with the tag line, "Washington doesn't need more liberal Republicans. Stop Joe Cao on Election Day."

"Who is Rep. Joseph Cao representing in Washington?" the FRC ad asks. "Cao has repeatedly voted for extra protections for homosexuals at the cost of religious liberty. Cao voted to use the military to advance the radical social agendas of homosexual activists and he voted for a so-called hate crimes bill that places your personal liberties at jeopardy."

Cao co-sponsored both the Hate Crimes Protection Act of 2009 and House legislation to repeal the policy that prohibits openly gay men and women from serving in the armed forces, known as "don't ask, don't tell."

"I believe it is a human rights violation to impose government-sanctioned penalties on a group of people just because of their sexual orientation, just as it would be a human rights violation to impose penalties on a group because of its religious affiliation or race," Cao said. "I will continue to fight for the protection of human rights for all people."


Cao told the newspaper, "As a former Jesuit seminarian and practicing Catholic, it is ridiculous to say that I have ever taken a position against religious liberties. I am, however, a champion of human rights and justice for all."

Cao faces Democratic state Rep. Cedric Richmond and Perkin's preference, independent candidate Anthony Marquize. In 2008, FRC endorsed Cao and Tony Perkins included Cao in his column, "The Good News on November 4."

In the 2nd congressional district Anh "Joseph" Cao defeated the ethically challenged Congressman William Jefferson. Jefferson has pleaded not guilty to charges of bribery, laundering money and misusing his congressional office. The pro-life Cao won despite running in a district that is 28 points more Democrat than the national average.

Comments

Like many misguided conservatives, Cao errs when he allows an Enlightenment understand of human rights and a liberal Christian understanding of social justice to destroy a clearly stated biblical ethic in which God denounces homosexual activity. Unless God is the author of injustice, we must assume that a strong stance for fidelity in marriage does not deny those who want to practice alternative lifestyles their human rights. God calls homosexuality an abomination. The scriptures have dire words of warning for those who embrace it. In recent times, instead of being the defenders of the faith, Jesuits have become the destroyers of biblical Christianity, advocates for leftest regimes that persecute Evangelicals, and propagators of a sycretistic view of Cathlicism that allows corrupt elements of culture to go unchallenged. I only have one question, can a biblical conservative win election in NOLA? If not, Cao may be better than the alternative.

This "republican" is a deep in his heart a democrat.
Either that or the republican party has changed what it stands for. This is the problem with the republican party right now, it has been infiltrated by true democrats so that democrats will be in power no matter what party they run on. And, this guy definitely is not a Roman Catholic, he may attend church for show but he doesn't live out his catholism. He belongs in a homosexual church becaue judging from this article and his pushing, pushing homosexual agenda, he just might be a closet homosexual. As for civil rights, civil rights is the right to vote, homosexuals just by them being men have always had the right to vote, unlike women and blacks (the only men who couldn't vote). Even out of slavery, blacks couldn't vote. Civil Rights has never appied to homosexuals just lesbians as women and black men. As for sexual rights, women are abused and murdered by out of proprotion to their numbers more than homosexuals and I don't see women getting special laws made for them. They have to live by the abuse and murder laws that cover both men and women.I forgot, homosexuals don't like women so what do they care, they only care about their right to push how they do sex, a bodily function not a racial function in everybody's faces.

@Original Anna,

Your suggestion that promoting hate crimes legislation and a repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy might make him a "closet homosexual" is simply idiotic. Whatever your political views or religious background, these sorts of non-sequitars do not have a place in our public discourse.

@Original Anna, you are exactly right.But today's conservatives frequently stoop to using the tactic of making an inflammatory & false statement just to get an idea out there.No matter how unethical or unseemly, a comment may be; there will be some who believe it. In other words some of it will stick. This has applied to gay Americans more than any other group.The repeated use of lies, slander, & defamation are the cause of the endemic violence & bloodshed that gays are subjected to.
