Skip to comments.Texas GOP platform: criminalize gay marriage and ban sodomy, outlaw strip clubs and pornography
Posted on 06/23/2010 8:37:50 AM PDT by Zakeet
The Texas Republican Party gives a whole new meaning to the word conservative.
The GOP there has voted on a platform that would ban oral and anal sex. It also would give jail sentences to anyone who issues a marriage license to a same-sex couple (even though such licenses are already invalid in the state).
We oppose the legalization of sodomy, the platform says. We demand that Congress exercise its authority granted by the U.S. Constitution to withhold jurisdiction from the federal courts from cases involving sodomy.
In addition, the platform says that homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit and leads to the spread of dangerous communicable diseases.
It also states that homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle in public schools and family should not be redefined to include homosexual couples.

Perhaps most troubling, we Texans will now miss out on the cultural diversity that comes from events such as the recent Gay Pride Week parade in Boston.
Sigh, that is a goddamn ugly pic but I do prefer my conservatism on the libertarian side. Glad I don’t live in Texas I guess.
God bless Texas.
The stupid party strikes again, of all the other things to tackle.
Funny, I’m not seeing ANYTHING at all on the Texas Republican party website that supports what the author is stating.
Literally, there is NOTHING that shows up on my browser.
Sounds like BS to me. Someone is astro-turfing the Texas GOP. They have no mention of such nonsense as outlawing strip clubs on their website.
Muslim named Aliyah Shahid trashes conservative Christians. Big surprise.
—yep—the country is bankrupt, the border out of control, unchecked “environmental”, etc., regulations by non-elected officials are driving small business to bankrupcy—but the Texas GOP apparently wants a sex inspector in every bedroom-—
It’s BS! See posts 5 & 6.
Outlaw strip clubs? That I think is going a tad to far.
Laws like this were common when I was a boy, I can’t recall anyone ever being prosecuted other then man/boy sex.
—thanks—I sure hope so-—
Maybe this is Aliyah Shahid’s way of contributing to journalistic jihad. I hope a mod pulls this article double quick.
I asked the mods to pull the article but they haven't done so. Would you please ask them to pull it also? Thanks!
I asked them to pull it as well. They must be busy this morning.
Now watch the libs’ heads explode over this- then they will know how WE FEEL when they try to cram their agenda through
These are lies.
I just sent a link to this hit piece to email@example.com. Let’s see if they smack this little fool down.
