    At least this anti-gay thread isn't centered around pizza and cakes.
    But I love pizza!

    I think some people get too invested in the stereotypes they create to really look at specific circumstances. And some just aren't smart enough.

    The day I buy that lie is the day that self-identified conservatives don't overwhelmingly vote Republican.

    Your defensiveness is on full display now, Tres.

    It's much different. When religion is involved there's very little wiggle room. Religion isn't a big part of the Libertarian party, or the Dems, etc. Right NOW the GOP has a large and vocal religious right. So this is a problem mostly with the GOP.

    I'm a Christian who thinks that marriage should be an exclusively civil matter, so I don't really have a dog in this hunt... I just dislike it when people put up crap like the OP to try to denigrate people based on nothing more than a lie.

    You didn't mention religion before. All parties have their litmus tests, just ask Joe Lieberman.

Now they have further enshrined a bad stereotype by making it true.
    Least they were being honest with them. They don't want to associate with people who openly defy the word of God.

    Conservatives mentioned religion as an excuse for barring gays from this event.

    It's going to be a problem for the GOP in 2016. Not just with gays but with younger women who are pro-abortion.

    See above... ^^^^

    So you think the Log Cabin Republicans are lying, aren't gay and don't really support gay marriage. Nice.

    Suppose a Democrat group were created where they agreed with every single portion of the dem platform with the solitary exception that they were for segregation. Would you expect them to be welcomed at a Democrat party event sponsored by and held at the NAACP?
