Another influential organization that NEVER speaks out against family-destroying bigotry.

Center for Arizona Policy.

Considered the most powerful social conservative lobby in Arizona, this national astroturf folksy little local grassroots group of Christians pushes policies it considers crucial to promoting strong families:

Life – The Center for Arizona Policy is dedicated to the protection of human life from the time of conception to the end of natural life. We promote public policy to protect the unborn child and their mothers. In further support of life, we oppose euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, human cloning, and embryonic stem cell research.

Marriage – Center for Arizona Policy supports measures which strengthen and encourage the institution of marriage through covenant marriage, the elimination of marriage tax penalties, and measures to reduce the divorce rate. We support the Arizona Marriage Amendment and support the passage of the federal Marriage Protection Amendment, defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman.

Religious Freedom – Center for Arizona Policy supports First Amendment religious liberties for Arizonans, and defends against unconstitutional discrimination toward people of faith. We are also committed to preserving our nation’s historic dedication to public expression of religious faith.

Education – Center for Arizona Policy supports enabling parents to choose the education they deem best for their children, whether that choice is public, private, charter, online or home schools. We promote policy that assists parents in having broader education choice and limits government involvement in private and home education.

Parental Rights – Center for Arizona Policy supports the rights of parents to guide their children’s lives and to be responsible for every aspect of their care, including all health-related decisions.

Gambling – Center for Arizona Policy opposes gambling, including the state lottery, race tracks, and casino gambling, primarily due to the harmful effects legalized gambling has on the family.

Judicial Reform – Center for Arizona Policy supports efforts to reform the judicial system to provide an effective check and balance on judicial power as a means to curb judicial activism.

Pornography – Center for Arizona Policy supports regulation of sexually oriented businesses to the fullest extent possible, including time, manner and place restrictions, and supports the strongest possible laws against obscenity and child pornography.

They couldn’t care less about immigration policies that rip parents away from their children. Not like we didn’t already know this from their stance on gay rights but I just thought I’d point it out.

    Probably not a coincidence that Brewer is speaking at CAP’s annual dinner on Saturday, a day after signing SB1070.

    Would aborting the fetus of an undocumented worker pose a dilemma for CAP? I know it would for Sen. Russell Pearce.
