I cut and pasted a couple bullet points about UP that shows them supporting the same values as most of us have---anti abortion, anti gay rights, pro homeschooling, less regulations, etc. I can’t see those as evil goals.
· Union Pacific’s political contributions helped fund the Traditional Values
Coalition (TVC). The TVC is led by the Rev. Louis Sheldon and bills itself
as the largest church-lobby in the United States . It opposes gay rights, a
woman’s right to choose, and the teaching of evolution in public schools. It
also lobbies for conservative judicial nominations.10
· Union Pacific’s political contributions also helped fund Texans for a
Republican Majority (TRM). TRM was a major contributor to Texas House
of Representatives contests in 2002, giving $558,000 to 24 candidates
who supported “right to work” laws, home schooling and keeping state
health and safety standards to a “minimum,” and opposed gay rights and
abortion. Fifteen of the state representatives who received TRM money
are listed as “current and active members” of the Texas Conservative
Coalition. Formed in 1985, TCC is an influential caucus in the Texas
House of Representatives.11
Texans for a GOP majority is a DeLay organization. I personally know Tom DeLay and know how hard he worked in Congress to promote conservative values. He also walked the talk and opened his home to many unwanted children. I saw firsthand how he and his wife treated those children and no one could fault his care and concern to provide a stable and loving environment.
