    Younger GOPers seem to be indifferent to NOM-like agitation against Marriage Equality:

    "The panel came off as a desperate plea by social conservatives, designed to make the point Gallagher admitted to the crowd: Many in the GOP, particularly among the libertarian-minded Tea Party activists, do not care about the gay marriage issue or many other social issues, at least not to the degree that Gallagher would like."

    Poor sow.. Hey Scott! Call your wife home would ya?

    I hope the younger Generation Y members of the GOP are victorious over the narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs and their foolhardy opposition to gay marriage. It is time to take the GOP back and permanently evict the religious right wing and send them into the outermost margins of society.

    I just think at this point it comes down to a generational divide, and even the older GOP members are understanding that marriage equality is an inevitability that they need to just stop resisting

    I generally agree with this statement, but would add that there's plenty of older Democrats who are anti-gay marriage.

    Here in NC, a few Democrats teamed up with Republicans to ensure Amendment One would make it to the ballot in May. I bet all of them are over 65.

    As a Democrat, I found that very disappointing but not terribly suprising.

    Here is a story of how they did not allow Gay Groups to attend this year:

    Here is a story where they welcomed White Nationalis­t Groups:

    I don't think they are improving. They are just trying to get away with whatever they feel they can get away with.

    The FACTS prove that the Repub party is not improving.

    The three front runners for the Repub nomination have adopted MORE hard line anti-gay policy stances than any previous Repub presidential nominees.

    Santorum Romney and Gingrich have all signed a pledge vowing to work to AMEND THE CONSTITUTION to make gay marriage illegal nationwide.

    If they were able to achieve their goal of taking the EXTREME step of amending the Constitution to make gay marriage illegal nationwide - all the states that currently allow gay marriage would be forced to stop doing so and no states would ever be able to start.

    The Repubs want to take the extreme step of enshrining anti-gay bigotry in OUR CONSTITUTION .

    They want to make gay Americans permanent second class citizens according to the Constitution!

    Fuck them.

    Bullshit, that's just the breath before the plunge. They are burning the last cartridges of the "old" GOP platform on gay rights.

    That's delusional.

    The young Repubs who don't advocate the anti-gay agenda of the official Repub party platform have ZERO power or influence in the current day Repub party.

    The Repub party of today is totally controlled by the older generation of activist anti-gay extremists.

    It will take years for the old anti-gay religious right Repubs to die off and be replaced by a new generation of Repubs who don't advocate an anti-gay agenda.

    In the meantime we need to keep the Repubs from putting another anti-gay Repub in the White House.

    If we can just keep the Repubs out of the White House for the next 2-3 elections - until the Repubs start putting forward presidential nominees who are pro-gay - we can keep the great progress we've seen in advancing gay rights moving forward!

    Fuck their admitting defeat which does not acknowledge having wrongly and badly mistreated us. It is not enough that Uncle Sam says uncle.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=93059465
    July 30, 2008 On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives issued an unprecedented apology to black Americans for the institution of slavery, and the subsequent Jim Crow laws that for years discriminated against blacks as second-class citizens in American society.

    We deserve nothing less.

    Yup.
    But they will never apologize.

    The only way for us to get satisfaction is to punish the Repubs by going to the polls and voting against them.

    Some guys just have it all! Not only has Rick Santorum had the honor of his surname entering the English language (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=santorum), but it turns out his wife shacked up for years with the physician who delivered her (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2087812/Rick-Santorums-wife-Karen-love-affair-abortion-doctor.html) Hell! You can't make this sort of stuff up -- what a great President he'd make! Can't you just imagine his table talk with a state dinner honoring Queen Elizabeth II. "Your Majesty, guess what my surname now means in the English language?" That ought to cement the special relationship across the pond for decades to come!

    THIS! THIS!! THIS!!!

    And, with the possible return to a Democratic Party controlled House and Senate this year, we have the opportunity to also load the judiciary (and hopefully the SCOTUS) with real human beings with hearts and souls.
