New Politico Poll Shows National Support for Same-Sex Marriage Continues to Decline

May 22nd, 2014

This week, the popular political news website Politico.com released the results of their recent national poll.

Encouraging, Telling Results:

Fully 70% of Americans say the issue of abortion is important in their voting decisions, and nearly 80% favor at least some restrictions on abortion.

Additionally, a majority of Americans (52%) oppose redefining marriage, and nearly 2/3 of voters polled say where a candidate stands on marriage is important in selecting their candidates.

As we have seen in Ohio, with the polling figures over the last month, support for same-sex marriage is declining as citizens become increasingly alarmed and disturbed by the bullying tactics carried out by many in the same-sex marriage movement.

CCV Action PAC Encouraged by Tuesday’s Primary Results

May 9th, 2014

CCV Action PAC would like to congratulate all those who were victorious in Tuesday’s primary election. We would also like to thank all of those who ran, campaigned, or voted for engaging in our civic duty and blessing of self-governance and the electoral process. We thank God for the opportunity to engage in free elections, a privilege that many “gave the last true measure of devotion” to protect, to quote President Lincoln.

CCV Action PAC was particularly encouraged by the fact that, in addition to endorsed incumbents who won re-election nominations, seven CCV Action PAC-endorsed non-incumbents (running in open races or as challengers) won their contested primary nomination for State Representative! This is encouraging news for all Ohioans who hold conservative values and principles.

If you are a candidate or supporter, please remind all candidates for November’s general election to complete the CCV Action PAC Questionnaire on OhioElectionCentral.com in order to be considered for endorsement. All candidates, even those previously endorsed in the primary, must fill out the general election questionnaire in order to be endorsed for the general election.

If you are interested in participating in the political system, or know someone who is considering a run, please contact us.  If you are Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage, and Pro-Religious Freedom, we would love to help you prepare.  Whether that means weighing the odds, laying out a campaign strategy, or just dipping your toe in the water to better understand what it takes, please let us know.  Maybe you are being prepared “for such a time as this…”

OUTRAGEOUS: Ohio Candidates Oppose Religious Freedom

March 21st, 2014

Mr. Ed FitzGerald and Mr. David Pepper Come Out AGAINST Religious Freedom

Religious liberty has been in the news a lot recently. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) has made headlines and sparked debate. Unfortunately, rather than contribute to quality discourse over the merits of RFRA bills throughout the country, some Ohio politicians have attacked religious freedom in order to earn cheap political points with the radical social agenda of their base.

Background

In 1993, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 was introduced in the House of Representatives by now-Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY). It passed the Democrat-controlled House virtually unanimously and passed the Senate by a vote of 97-3. Even Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid voted for RFRA. This nearly unanimous bipartisan bill was then signed into law by President Clinton who said, “I have tried to be faithful to that tradition that we have of the First Amendment.”
