Rumor has it a few high-ranking GOP operatives have turned their backs on the pro-life movement by helping Democratic Candidate Christine Quinn’s bid for Mayor.
Inside religious political circles, Quinn is considered the strongest adversary of religious free speech in New York City – infamously dubbed “public enemy number one to the faithful,” according to a source familiar with the situation.
A small number of these legacy Republicans are alleged to be aiding and abating her campaign for a quick buck and a political capital windfall should she win the Mayoral race.
Imagine this scenario: young men receive high level positions in government based on the hard work of their fathers, many of whom are considered “heroic, honorable, pro-life advocates that have dedicated their lives to God’s work and saving unborn babies,” according to the source. But instead of continuing their father’s work, they are alleged to be helping Quinn’s campaign for Mayor.
In response, a grassroots movement known as “Salve Regina” is sweeping across NYC.
“Salve Regina” is an attempt to educate Christian parishioners, Evangelicals, and Jewish Synagogues of Quinn’s agenda to suppress religious free speech by raising awareness of her attacks on pregnancy centers and pro-life advocates.
When their message becomes salient, she could lose all support from church going democrats particulary African-Americans, Hispanics, Jews and conservative whites in the outer boroughs, even though these demographics were already said to prefer one or more of her opponents.
Are those Republicans that are secretly helping Quinn now at a state of political war with the defenders of life? Will there be a backlash against the turncoats? Will these sell outs try to put political hits on the pro-lifers in order to gain favor with Christine Quinn?
Time will tell.
