AURORA – Republican Governor Bruce Rauner celebrated Father's Day by marching in west suburban Aurora's first Gay Pride Parade Sunday. (More HERE)
Just a few years ago, Aurora's downtown was the site of a rally for traditional marriage – with local church members encouraging their state lawmakers to support one-man/ one-woman marriage.
What a difference five years make, eh?
David E. Smith, executive director of Illinois Family Institute, helped organize that rally in 2013. Here's what he had to say today:
Why am I not surprised to learn that Bruce Rauner marched in Aurora's Pride Parade over the weekend? For some strange reason, he believes that the path to a second term is to pander to potential voters on the left of the political spectrum. Instead of appealing to the 341k Republican voters who voted against him in the March primary election, Rauner apparently believes that he has to highlight his pro-LGBTQIA credentials to supplement his infamous pro-abortion advocacy. This leftward politicking only supports the growing number of voices accusing him of being an imposter.
