    It seems that the debate among the platform committee on Monday has focused more on the party’s advocacy for teaching the Bible in public schools. However, it ultimately seems to have concluded that, yes, the Bible should be an essential part of public school education in this country


    WTF icon_eek.gif


    Does this mean the republican party and their religious ilk are now prepared to relinquish its 'church' non profit and tax free status? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Republicans moved on Tuesday toward adopting a staunchly conservative platform that takes a strict, traditionalist view of the family and child rearing, bars military women from combat, describes coal as a “clean” energy source and declares pornography a “public health crisis.” ... the document positions itself far to the right of Mr. Trump’s beliefs in other places — and amounts to a rightward lurch even from the party’s hard-line platform in 2012 — especially as it addresses gay men, lesbians and transgender people...nearly every provision that expressed disapproval of homosexuality, same-sex marriage or transgender rights passed. The platform calls for overturning the Supreme Court marriage decision with a constitutional amendment and makes references to appointing judges “who respect traditional family values.” ... Additional provisions included those that promoted state laws to limit which restrooms transgender people could use, nodded to “conversion therapy” for gays by saying that parents should be free to make medical decisions about their children without interference and stated that “natural marriage” between a man and a woman is most likely to result in offspring who do not become drug-addicted or otherwise damaged.

    The bigotry is almost breathtaking in its persistence! Again, conservatives seem almost obsessed with gays. Why?

    The Republican platform could care less about the Constitution. We just got the ability to adopt in all 50 states as of last week.

    That Republicans say they don't discriminate while they discriminate against us is because Republicans don't consider us to be 100% human to be discriminated against. They continually seek to demonize us to dehumanize us to discriminate against us without--in their minds--discriminating, because we'd have to be human to be discriminated against. So if they succeed in stripping us of our humanity (TRUMP AND HIS PRESUMPTIVE SUPREME COURT, FOR RANDOM INSTANCE), then they both fulfill their claim that they don't discriminate (after all, what human would allow a beast to use a public bathroom) as well as supposedly fulfilling their self-appointed anointment as God's personal representatives on Earth.

    With all due respect to God, Republicans should go fuck themselves.

    Interesting to see what the spineless Log Cabin Republicans will do next. I predict they'll still kiss the GOP's ass, with plenty of rationale, even while the GOP is kicking them in the teeth.

    What will be fascinating is to see is how they explain their continued support for Republicans, even as Republicans have declared total war on LGBT. But rest assured, they'll find a weasely way. Apparently their best tactic is to try to insert LESS harmful LGBT language in a minority report. Well, that solves everything!

    Log Cabin Republicans should convene to organize themselves against the GOP's mainstream on gay rights issues. If only there was a bathroom stall large enough.

    Someone forgot to inform the GOP that the greatest number of online porn hits are in Red States. Restrict access to those Internet porn sites and the GOP will be making their base very unhappy. Good.

    And also require the US to resort to repression tactics like the Chinese government, and some in the Middle East use. A nice comparison.

    I see you're still alive and have freedom of speech and can marry a man!

    All Republicans are not that radical. I think many take a stand for the 25% that want/need to see it......but it's changing and it looks like with Trump! Remember, he's a liberal to most republicans! YUP

    1.Look what's happening in London with the New Muslim Mayor? I am sure you have read it???
    2. I think we should all pray a little more......
    3. No excuse for women to have any less than a man. I know many Christian faiths that teach equality.
    4, Homosexuality, IT WILL NEVER BE FULLY UNDERSTOOD. I get that, I take precautions. ALWAYS HAVE, ALWAYS WILL! Your're a fool if you don't!
    5. It's clear, in this Country....for how many years now?? We do have a better separation of state Vs. The UAE......LOL
    6. Kids need a little more religion, so why not let them take an elective class to learn about their individual faith!
    7. Killing an unborn child, Well Dr. Mett8. Whip out your knife and slice the brat to death! I am glad I am not a woman on this issue. I try not to judge, but I would offer every means to help guide that child to adoption. Gay or Straight.....I still think having a mom and dad are the best. However, the world has changed and eventually, they will understand it.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    Perhaps you mean his attending the Orlando tribute, along with thousands of other Londoners.

    It seems he has a little more respect for your culture than you have for his.
