Terri Lynn Land on Civil Rights

 


AdWatch: No discrimination, but "no comment" on gay- bashing

As prominent Michigan Republicans distance themselves from controversial remarks national committeeman Dave Agema made about homosexuals, Land has refused interview requests, instead choosing to issue only a prepared statement that fails to fully address the comments from Agema. The statement quickly spins from the topic of Agema renewing his religious belief against same-sex marriage and claiming gays want free medical care because they are dying young from AIDS to disparaging Democrats as desperate.

"Terri does not tolerate discriminatory acts or speech, and believes that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect," the emailed statement said.

When reached by phone, Land declined to elaborate on what she finds objectionable about Agema's talk. She deferred to the emailed statement. Land has not responded to questions about whether Agema should be asked to resign. Meanwhile, the state's top elected Republican, Gov. Rick Snyder, has publicly condemned Agema.

Supports GOP platform which bans same-sex marriage

Terri Lynn Land announced she will continue to serve as National Committeewoman for the National Republican Party while running for Senate. In this role, Land voted for, and will continue to promote, the GOP platform, which called for turning Medicare into a voucher program and a ban on abortion that did not include exceptions for rape, incest or saving a woman's life. Land's extreme GOP platform also supported privatizing Social Security, banning same sex marriage, opposing any gun legislation that would limit "the capacity of clips or magazine," banning women from combat, and a study to determine whether to return the US dollar to the gold standard.

In August 2009, the New York Times reported that the 2012 GOP platform "calls state court decisions recognizing same-sex marriage "an assault on the foundations of our society."
