I don't even get why gay Republicans try to connect with their party on anything other than economic issues. Social conservatives don't like them. This is a fact proven time and time again through legislation, statements, and party policy. It doesn't matter how much you support small government if the person you're going home with has the same gender as you. To the average social conservative, gay Republicans simply are an unimportant and insignificant percentage of the Republican party. One whose vote is not required.
