Will the Republican Party live up to its platform – part 3

The 2016 Republican Party National Platform states the following:

We are the party of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The Declaration sets forth the fundamental precepts of American government: That God bestows certain inalienable rights on every individual, thus producing human equality; that government exists first and foremost to protect those inalienable rights; that man-made law must be consistent with God-given, natural rights; and that if God-given, natural, inalienable rights come in conflict with government, court, or human-granted rights, God-given, natural, inalienable rights always prevail; that there is a moral law recognized as “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”; and that American government is to operate with the consent of the governed.

Clearly, the attempt to create human-granted rights of sexual perversion which would override  the rights of citizens to exercise their religious beliefs, as exemplified by Senator Wagner’s SB 613 and SB 974 (see other posts on this blog) is neither consistent with the Declaration of Independence nor the 2016 Republican Party National Platform.
