    Wrong. Guy, the "republican base" is not the Republican PARTY. The majority of Republicans did support the positions I just listed. Go read the 1992 GOP platform sometime.

    What happened to the GOP's big tent? Any ideas on that?
    The big tent has never been bigger than a bivy sack. It is a primarily a White Southern Christian Party and has been for a while.

    I did end up looking up the group but really just going off 'log cabin republicans' it makes me think of republicans in log cabins.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Looks like the GOP's big tent got bigger if there's a organized group of gay Colorado Republicans. I'll bet they're actually a pretty cool group of people.
    Only if cool is a synonym for self-loathing. Who wants to be part of a club with a bunch of people that think you are an abomination.

    The Log Cabin Republicans are gay. And Republicans.
    What is CPAC? Only the biggest annual event for GOP politicians, that's all - and MUCH bigger and more newsworthy than the event mentioned in the OP. But of course since bringing them up only shows the GOP as becoming ever more homophobic, that's not something you want to hear...and so your dismissal of them.

    I just can't get over the fact that a gay group called themselves after Log Cabins. Historically speaking the time period when Log Cabins would have been at all used wasn't kind to homosexuals. Just sayin'.

    We aren't talking about CPAC. Did you stumble into the wrong thread?

    TB, the problem with making discrimination legal is that a little bit of discrimination is like being a little bit pregnant. If someone can refuse to serve a gay person because religion, then what stops that person from refusing to serve Muslims, or blacks, all because religion?

    I've seen and done enough discrimination - I know first-hand where it leads. You really don't want to go there.

    I don't think so. They don't care about the word of god. They're just grossed out by the concept of sodomy. I actually am grossed out by it as well, hence I don't participate though I hear it's all the rage with young women these days to be sodomized. However, me being grossed out by something only means I shouldn't do it, it doesn't mean I should judge others who choose to do it.

    There's not one ounce of "caring about the word of god," it's flat out bigotry.
    Like I said in another post, most people don't proudly wear the badge of being a sinner. [which we all are] These people of faith don't want to play nice, they shouldn't have to.
