Tea Party Candidates Are Radical Social Conservatives
The Tea Party claims that they are focused on economic issues, like the deficit and government spending, but they have nominated candidates who take extremely radical conservative views on social issues like gay rights and abortion. Several tea party candidates, including Sharon Angle and Christine O'Donnell, are opposed to a women's right to abortion even in cases of rape or incest! All oppose equal rights for gays and lesbians, and some (like NY Tea Party Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino) have embraced extremely anti-gay homophobic views.
So when the Tea Party claims they are not anti-gay or concerned with social conservative issues, they are LYING!
Look Who's Joined the Tea Party!
