NC Republican Party tells Log Cabin Queers to stay away

See more » Durham, NC See more » Sodomitical Polity

I know I should feel bad about this happening here in The Great Tarheel State. But I fear that moral philosopher Blount does state the case for the majority of Republicans down here. My own nasty feeling is that the Log Cabin Republicans aren't getting anything other than what they should've expected. A desire to bomb Iraqi citizens and deprive impoverished people of social services isn't as binding as they must've hoped.

[N.C. GOP Chairman Ferrell] Blount's letter reportedly said that "homosexuality is not normal and should not be established as an acceptable 'alternative' lifestyle." He also said the North Carolina Republican Party and the Log Cabin Republicans "do not seem to share the same agenda."

Homosexual Republican Group Barred From NC GOP Convention

Really what would you expect from the state party that gave America Jesse Helms and did its best to keep black voters from the polls not that long ago?

He said he conferred with state party leaders about the booth. He said that the Log Cabin group not only pushed gay issues, but that its national Web site criticizes President Bush, who supports a federal constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

"As state party chairman, I support the definition of marriage as being a union sanctioned by God between a man and a woman. That is what the Republican Party talks about in its platform and will talk about this weekend," Blount said

Gay GOP members not allowed a table at state convention

One North Carolina gay Republican has a much delayed moment of political satori.

Ed Farthing, the chair of the North Carolina Log Cabin Republicans called Blount's position "discouraging".

"It appears to be you have to be a white, Anglo-Saxon married Protestant for the Party to pay any attention to you," Farthing told 365Gay.com.

GOP Tells Gay Republicans 'You're Not Wanted'

This NC gubernatorial candidate summarizes the limits of the state party's cosmopolitan spirit and empathy.

Bill Cobey, a former congressman and past state GOP chairman running for governor, said Republicans are responding to what they see as an assault on time-honored values. "I'll trust God before I'll trust the mayor of San Francisco or a bunch of judges in Massachusetts," Cobey said.

Gay Republicans are barred from GOP convention

Sorry guys, kissing George Bush's behind has gotten you what you deserve: zero.

I’m as queer as a three dollar bill but I love republican men. No girls need apply. Write me please!

I feel that so long we have heard the words” I don’t care what they do as long as they keep it out of my home.” Well, now its here, and in everyones face to deal with. I have heard people say that gay’s are sick, they don’t know what they want, well, I don’t know much about that side of life, and I have grown up with the values of you get married, have kids, love each other, grow old together. We as Americans let it get this way and now we wish to stop it. My grandma used to say, look the other way,people love their children and we don’t plan to raise kids that are gay, and if you have one, it is kept a secret, you don’t want to let others know. That was 40 years ago. I have found out by raising 3 children, you do your best and pray they are going in the right direction. My mother-n-law, has a nephew that is gay, he is 40 and still lives at home. He does not date( to their knowledge) he is different, his mother and grandmother don’t see anything wrong, but other people see it. I don’t know how my youngest will feel as she grow, she has always gave a little tendence that way, she has been raised in a loving home and has seen things that should keep her straight. What I am saying is parents have not raised their kids to be gay, and I imagine when most found out they had to say’ I love my kid, therefore, I have no choice. We have also laid no laws for adoption in this country by gay people, if we knew we were headed in thie dirrection, that should have been stopped a long time ago, but it wasn’t. I don’t really know how I feel about this, but I do feel that the GOP should not have said stay away, there is no room for your kind. It appears they are cutting off their nose to spite their face. I guess I believe in marriage between a man and a woman, but I never really have given it much thought.

Your feelings?

Please share your feelings about NC Republican Party tells Log Cabin Queers to stay away.
