Social conservative Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum, claimed this week that Republicans want candidates who will resist “gay tide” of marriage.

Schlafly chided mainstream media for putting out the idea that “gay marriage is the wave of the future.”

“But not so fast,” she told her radio listeners. “That may not be true at all. All this so-called momentum is created by supremacist judges who are trying to impose their left-wing bias even on states where the voters have passed a referendum putting only traditional husband-wife marriage into their state constitution. Unfortunately, we are stuck with some supremacist judges who claim we have a 'living' Constitution and pretend that they can rewrite our laws and even our Constitution. This marriage issue will probably go to the U.S. Supreme Court in about a year, and we don't know how the Court will rule.”

After citing a poll which found a large majority (82%) of Republicans agree that marriage should be defined as a heterosexual union, Schlafly claimed that the Republican National Committee (RNC) selected Cleveland over Las Vegas to host its upcoming convention to “punish” Nevada Republicans who recently dropped anti-gay, anti-choice language from their state party platform.

“After Nevada Republicans dropped traditional marriage from their state platform, the Republican Party promptly punished Nevada by rejecting Las Vegas as a site for the 2016 Republican National Convention. It is unfortunate if marriage becomes a political issue between Republicans and Democrats, but it does look as if politics is going that way. We are looking for candidates who will defend marriage and not be swept along in the gay tide,” she said.
