Romney: I swear that I am a social conservative

Apparently, Governor Mitt Romney is NOT a social conservative. A group out of Massachusetts, called MassResistance, will be handing out pamphlets tomorrow that criticize Governor Romney. The group argues:

"Gov. Romney has NOT used the Executive Office or “bully pulpit” to protect and promote pro-family, pro-life issues. He rejected the idea of removing the four “homosexual marriage” judges (through the means outlined in the Mass. Constitution). He allowed his Dept. of Education and Dept. of Public Health to promote a radical homosexual agenda in our public schools.

Gov. Romney says he will support “domestic partnerships” for homosexual couples if the new “VoteOnMarriage” amendment is passed in Massachusetts. In 2004, he voiced support for civil unions (according to the Boston Globe). In 2001, Citizen Romney did NOT endorse the first Massachusetts marriage amendment, was embarrassed that his family members had signed the petition, and said the amendment was “too extreme.” (Boston Globe)

More information on the group can be found at these two sites:
