Still say there's no homophobia in the (R) party?

Do,


Being a gay Republican is like unto being a Jewish Nazi.


 The wrong people has gotten the GOP's ear.


 What I been getting from the GOP is a message that they don't want your vote if you are gay.


Maybe they intend to disenfranchise you, criminalize you and persecute you.

For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary.
For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.

St. Thomas Aquinas

If one turns his ear from hearing the Law, even his prayer is an abomination. Proverbs 28:9

Back in the 80's there were gays in the GOP, now with the the rightward shift of the party in their policies and the loss of compromise in party politics has polarized the entire system.

Hmmm...glass houses and all that.  At least Romney (who didn't have a problem with the guy's sexual orientation, if anything, he's only guilty of caving to interest group pressure, like pretty much every politician on the planet) didn't diddle his subordinate and then buy the victim off like he's some kind of altar boy...  Still think the Dems hold any high ground on this issue?

Neither party holds much of a high ground when it comes to sex. That said, the Democrats aren't usually the ones inveighing about "family values" so while they're just as liable to get their hands caught in thej honey trap, they're not usually as wildly hypocritical about it.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

Fiat justitia, ruat caelum

Hell, no.



But this is not about sex.


It is about Mr. Romney refusing to stand up to the yahoos. 


I'm done with Mr. Romney, whom I once liked.


The man has no backbone at all.  If he thinks he's Rick Santorum, maybe he should drop out of the race and let the real Rick Santorum run.

Do unto others


If you want a soapbox for gay issues why not create one thread rather then shotgunning all over the hot topics zone.


I haven't encountered much anti-gay sentiments on BNet so I find your exagerated hysteria puzzling.
