In the August 15th edition of the Yell County Record (an Arkansas newspaper), Mary Bentley, a Republican candidate for District 73 State Representative, published this apparent attempt at a campaign ad with a very strong message. The Arkansas Times got wind of it, so now we can enjoy it too!
In case the print’s too small to read (all spelling and grammer errors are, well, not my own):
Democrat Party backs Gay Marriage on Party Platform
This past weekend the Democrat party backed Gay marriage for the first time on their party platform. The choice this November on moral issues could not be clearer. Do you support Gay marriage and abortion? The democrat party does. Thankfully here in Arkansas we passed the defense of marriage act defining marriage as between one man and one woman. But as we have seen in Washington with President Obama‘s refusal to defend DOMA just having the law doesn’t prevent Officials from ignoring it or the will of the people who passed it. Case in point here is Governor Beebe‘s latest appointment to the State School Board. Dr. Jay Barth is a liberal political science professor from Hendrix who happens to be a homosexual activist and married to another man. I have not heard a single word of opposition to this appointment from any of the democratic legislators in Arkansas. On the case for abortion the democrat party in Arkansas killed 10 prolife bills proposed by republicans in committee this past legislative session and brag about it. I am a republican because they represent my Christian values, faith in God and what the Bible teaches about life and marriage. I am a business owner and I am passionate about seeing our state prosperous, but my hopes of seeing the laws in Arkansas reflecting our Christian family values about abortion and continuing to reflect them on marriage drive me even harder to win this election in November!
Whoosh, that was a doozy. Damn that “democrat party”!
