The Republican National Committee has hired Chad Connelly as their “faith outreach director” (it really should be Christian outreach director; it’s not like they’re reaching out to Muslims or Hindus) and he’s making sure everyone knows that the Republican party is God’s political home.
RNC faith director Chad Connelly said during a recent interview with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that Republicans aren’t moving away from conservative stances on issues like marriage equality. In fact, Connelly said that the GOP adopted “the most pro-faith, pro-family, best platform ever put in in Republican Party or political party history down in Tampa in 2012.”
“The Republican Party is the natural home for people of faith,” he said. “This is the place where God’s got a home.”
Sounds like a good reason not to vote Republican.
