    article:
    Republican National Committee subcommittee members Monday voted to approve a plank embracing the use of harmful anti-LGBT conversion therapy, after it was introduced by the head of a certified anti-gay hate group. The plank will be voted on by a committee and then all RNC voting members before becoming an official part of the 2016 platform.


    This at a time when they've announced their intent to "soften" the anti-gay rhetoric of their party's platform

    The GOP is so fucking full of shit.

    And within the last weeks Republicans have inserted four anti-gay amendments into unrelated legislation in Washington. The level of their frenzy of hate is breathtaking. And yet we see gay Republicans in the Forums every day spouting whatever fountain of stupid they've been fed last by their fearful leaders.

    Here's Hillary with Chirlane MaCray whose husband, Liberal Democrat Socialist Mayor of NYC and former Clinton Senate campaign manager Bill DeBlasio converted Chirlane from an out and proud lesbian to heterosexual.

    Careful where you put that hand Hillary:

    I believe this is the reason they are going to lose the election this fall and continue to crash and burn. The GOP obviously has not learned the lesson yet. If they want to be a political party that they hope people feel is progressive, they need to start demonstrating policies that show that, instead of only supporting select blocks of citizens who agree with their rigid platform. The United States includes EVERYONE, gay, straight, every nationality and all aspects of sexual orientation.. Everyone needs to be included in their platform or the GOP will continue to march toward oblivion.

    im quite shocked some of the big people in the party have not rebelled yet and made a splinter group to take them out scorched earth and then rebuild from there.
    this happens all the time in other countries. the gop brand can't be THAT solid that it is invulnerable to being replaced wholesale.

    Very sad that these people are so utterly clueless. One of the reasons so many of them are in the #NeverTrump crowd is that they know he will not govern in this archaic fashion so they are digging their heels in now with this platform that in the end will be meaningless. The platform shows no growth from their losing platforms of the past. Regardless, I do believe that IF Trump is elected he will bring about long overdue change in this platform.

    Oh but they already are inclusive. Their menu says so. At brunch they're serving fish AND dairy.
