SC REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEEMAN CALLS ON CONVENTION TO PASS RESOLUTION

Would express support with local principal in fight over gay student club

South Carolina Republican National Committeeman Drew McKissick called on the delegates to Saturday’s State Convention to pass a resolution expressing support for Irmo High School Principal Eddie Walker in his stand against a gay student club on campus.

In an email to delegates McKissick stated, “Our party has an excellent opportunity to speak up this Saturday on a timely issue here in our state.  Specifically, the right of individuals who hold government jobs to stand up for their religious convictions“.

The issue revolves around Irmo High School Principal Eddie Walker, and his decision to resign from his position, effective at the end of the next academic year, as a result of the formation of a Gay student club on the school’s campus – and the fact that it violates his religious principles to be a party to allowing it to happen.

“The gay rights radicals are now out in full force, and our party should stand up for people of faith in government that are willing to stand on their principles, McKissick said.”

The proposed resolution reads:

“Whereas, Irmo High School Prinicipal Eddie Walker has dedicated his life to the education and development of our young people,

“And Whereas, Principal Eddie Walker has been viciously attacked by radical ultra-liberal and angry extremists for standing up for his religious and professional convictions,

“Therefore be it resolved, that the South Carolina Republican Party expresses its support for Principal Eddie Walker and urges all local school boards and the South Carolina State Board of Education to do so as well.”

The State GOP will hold its convention this Saturday at the Columbia Convention Center.
