Well, I have friends that are Republican. I was a registered Republican at one point in my life. Actually, there was a political office that temporarily opened up next to one of my father's offices and my dad walked me in to get me registered to vote. The form already had Republican checked on it. lol. I grew up in an city that is primarily Republican. I grew up in a household that was mostly Sagebrush Republican (not a term that is really used anymore). I currently have friends/neighbors that are registered Republicans. But I will say that most of them would not vote against civil rights.
I wonder. SOMEBODY is voting against gay civil right in lots of Red States. If it's not the Republicans, who is it? I mean, SOMEBODY is. Who do you think is voting against gays? Democrats?
And BTW, my own parents were lifelong Republicans. And Republican elected officeholders. I helped in their campaigns. And the first time I ever voted it was for my Mother, on the Republican ticket.
But that was then, this is now. As many people say, they didn't leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left THEM. And so it was with me, a Republican until my 40s.
Republicans hate gays. It's in their official national party platform. Their leaders and candidates make horrible homophobic statements, like an Indiana candidate for the US House just last week, who thinks gays cause tornadoes. It just doesn't stop, one incident after another.
And the worst thing is that Republicans vote in lockstep. You can say your own Member of Congress is a good guy. But when he or she gets to Washington, they'll vote the Party line as they're told. And that Party line is anti-gay, anti-women, anti-Black, anti-minorities, anti-labor, anti-everything. And only pro-1 percenters. No gay should support that.
