BOSTON, April 8, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Republican Party of Massachusetts' newly elected Chairman told a LGTB news service recently that the party will no longer take stances on social issues like same-sex "marriage" because she is against "legislating" personal views.
In an interview with the LGTB newspaper the Bay Window, Mass. State Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Nassour said that her priority of reinvigorating grass roots Republicans will be addressed through a party-wide focus on the economy - not prominent social issues.
"To me social issues are personal issues. Those are personal views, and we are not legislating here - at least I am not legislating anyone's personal views," said Nassour. "I have no personal agenda I'm trying to push through other than electing Republicans."
"Obviously building a strong grassroots and a farm team to get people to run for office [is important], but I think what's also important is to reach out to people who aren't part of the Republican Party right now and try to expand the party and bring new people in, and I would include the gay and lesbian community."
