    Well, that didn't take long. Where are all the conservative RJers who said the Tea Party wasn't anti-gay? icon_rolleyes.gif

    CWA is hardly a Tea Party group - they were and are a deeply socially conservative outfit supported by James Dobson/Focus on the Family and other evangelical groups. A group which sadly attached itself to the Tea Party movement, but is itself a relic from the religious right that Karl Rove cultivated to great effect in the early 2000s.

    As for Tea Partiers in general... well, it *is* a broad spectrum movement.

    Just like not all Democrats care for LGBTs, or even many of the other special interest groups under the Democratic tent.

    Well if this isn't a warning shot accross the gay conservatives bows, that their not welcome in the republican party which is run and shaped by the tea party activists, then I've missed the point totally. Its fine for gays to want to limit the size and debt of the Federal government, but gays in the republican party are about as likely to mix as oil and water.

    Would you be able to find a comparable vid put out by a Democrat group and post it here? I've been looking and can't find anything so far.

    All this makes me laugh ......

    of all the apologists on here and GOProud themselves

    THEY DON'T LIKE YOU

    They don't want you in their party and everything you stand for they despise
    Hopefully when they see it spoken on camera in the English language they'll finally take them at their word

    I've been saying this here for years, predicting exactly this outcome. For which the GOP cheerleaders here called me paranoid, with southbeach1500 making comments that I had escaped from my straitjacket when I posted.

    But now I'm being proven correct, unfortunately. Which won't change their minds here, as you suggest. They'll just continue to hold the party line, and spew the lies & propaganda. It's a formula that works & gets political gains for them, so I don't see what would motivate them to change. Certainly not honesty & integrity, nor the slightest concern for gay rights or even safety.

    I see it as bigger than just LGBT issues.

    I can't see my way clear to being a single-issue voter, when I see the other major party as just being so wrong on a host of other things.

    And the Dems have hardly made any progress on federalizing same sex marriage, repealing DADT or DOMA.

    So I'm not holding my breath for action on these issues from either party.

    While LGBT rights *are* important to *us*, I don't see them as *the* overarching issue by which all other things must be subordinated.

    Moreover, the public's views on SSM and other LGBT issues are changing.

    State legislatures are gradually adopting laws in favour of our interests.

    Newly-elected legislators in Wisconsin have announced plans already to REVOKE previously-passed same-sex benefits.

    As your Sarah Palin said (sort of), how's that workin' out for ya?


    Yep...Our community has no better ally than Today's GOP! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Sarah Palin would do best to retire to her ranch in Alaska and make reality TV shows and live off her Fox News commentator cash cow. icon_razz.gif

    Speaking of, her show just started on channel 34, complete with husky male voiced Yee-haw! music and banjo.

    Barron ripped the two social conservatives apart, why do you have the opposite title on your topic?

    He did an awesome job and exposed the social conservative right -- they are no more interested in small government than liberals -- they talk about fiscal conservatism but only if it involves the other side, not their own agenda.

    What a different tack you take as opposed to, say, that Jan Brewer (social conservative right woman) topic where you demonstrated a callousness I have seen in few people.
