Homosexual Groups Vie for Bragging Rights Over RNC Platform Process
America's Party News ^ | Aug. 10, 2012

Posted on 08/10/2012 7:51:14 AM PDT by EternalVigilance

Two separate Republican homosexual groups are arguing over who made the first inroads into the GOP platform-drafting process.

From the Washington Blade [a 'gay' news source]:

GOProud disputes Log Cabin’s ‘first’ at GOP convention

Two gay Republican groups disagree over the claim that the participation of Log Cabin in the 2012 Republican platform drafting process is a “first” for the organization as claimed by its executive director.

On Wednesday, the Washington Blade reported that Log Cabin would have four members of its organization credentialed to take part in the platform drafting process, which will happen in Tampa, Fla., the week before the Republican National Convention begins in that city.

R. Clarke Cooper, executive director of the organization, said this direct involvement in the platform drafting process was a first for Log Cabin.

But this assertion has been challenged by another gay Republican group that will also have a presence at the convention.

Chris Barron, chief strategist of GOProud, disputed Log Cabin’s assertion in an email to the Blade, saying he was “credentialed to attend the platform hearings” when he was Log Cabin’s political director in 2004.

Barron criticized Cooper, saying a Google search of Barron’s involvement in the Republican National Convention would reveal his past work and Log Cabin’s participation in the 2012 process is “nothing new or novel.”

Selling our souls for homosexual influence, money and to score political points is the path to Hell.

The GOP is like the idiot puppy dogs. Kick them in the groin with punitive discriminatory taxes in the groin, and they come back for more.

If homosexuals consider conservative principles superior, we welcome their votes. But there is no place in the platform for an affirmation of their perversions.

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

If homosexuals vote Republican this year it will not be because the GOP nominee has conservative principles. Beyond a thin gloss of campaign rhetoric, he doesn't. It will be because of his long and effective record of advancing the radical homosexual agenda, and his continued affinity with them.

But there is no place in the platform for an affirmation of their perversions.

Republican "leaders" don't pay the platform any mind anyhow, no matter what it says.

Remember how in 08 the GOP made a lot of noise about including a strong border control stance in the platform right before they nominated John McCain. LOL

I remember in 2006 how the public voted the Republicans out of power in Congress because they thought there were entirely too many homosexuals in positions of influence in the party.

The public hasn't changed ~ I see one of the lightest turnouts in more than a century.

Yup. It was around 12% in my precinct the other day and my little town usually has an exceedingly high primary turnout of only about 15% less than in general elections.

Let’s not forget that Ann Man neck Coulture is a BIG supporter of these groups, she calls herself the “Queen of Fabulous”, what a *ramp.

If homosexuals vote Republican this year it will not be because the GOP nominee has conservative principles.

Since the 2000 election, Republicans have made steady inroads in earning votes among self-identified homosexuals. That includes 2004 when W ran on the marriage amendment and the Tea Party's turnout in 2010.

That's OK, though, you don't want their votes as they're not good enough to be on your side.

You’re ridiculous. The public didn’t vote Republicans out for that reason. They did it because Pelosi beat the drums of coverup on the so-called “page scandal,” Tom DeLay’s fall, “Duke” Cunningham on the take and Bush fatigue.

Mark Foley and Senator Craig ~ and then there was Hastert's remarkable disinterest in the whole business.

People notice those things ~ and the second Ken Mehlman 'fessed up about it all that did was confirm in the voting public's minds that they'd been right about the rascally Republicans.

BTW, there's a double standard here and the Democrats are not held to the same deal, but Republicans are!
