Right-wing book blasts Mitt Romney for supporting gays

A right-wing activist has penned a book blasting likely Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney for promoting the “gay agenda” during his time as governor of Massachusetts.

In “Mitt Romney’s Deception: His Stealth Promotion of ‘Gay Rights’ and ‘Gay Marriage’ in Massachusetts,” Amy Contrada details the Republican’s role in implementing same-sex marriage and promoting LGBT tolerance in the state. She accuses Romney of supporting “sexual-radical indoctrination in the schools” while posing as “a defender of traditional family values.”

Anti-gay right-wing leaders have embraced the book, reports Christian Newswire.

“In writing the meticulously documented ‘Mitt Romney’s Deception,’ Amy Contrada has done the job that the liberal media was supposed to do,” said Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. “What she has uncovered is stunning even to experienced critics of Romney’s equivocation on homosexual issues. Contrada lays bare Romney’s servile embrace of the radical Massachusetts ‘gay’ agenda. Then she exposes his subsequent doublespeak in posing as the stalwart defender of traditional marriage in his bid for the GOP presidential nomination.”

“This book could not be more timely or more thorough in presenting the case against a Romney presidency,” said Linda Harvey of MissionAmerica. “Ms. Contrada has given a gift to America by exposing the faux ‘conservatism’ of former Governor Mitt Romney.”

Since serving as Massachusetts’ governor, Romney has rebranded his image as vehemently anti-gay. While many if not most pundits consider him the most formidable of the likely Republican presidential nominees, he is unpopular with the GOP’s evangelical base, partially due to his Mormon religion.

Romney made an unsuccessful bid for the Republican nomination in 2008.
