    What happened to the GOP's big tent? Any ideas on that?
    Nonsx this isn't a GOP event, its a Conservative Christian event.

    I wonder if a Event run by Black ministers would allow the Log Cabin Republicans in ?

    I'm not sure I understand the outrage. This is a Christian organization that does not recognize gay marriage or abortion. This is not a Republican affair. They invited some of the GOP candidates to speak. Is anyone suggesting they do not have that right? Millions in this country like it or not share their beliefs. And who are any of you to define their morality for them? I would imagine if there was still a pro-life, pro-traditional marriage candidate in the Democrat party, they would have received an invitation as well.

    From Wiki:

    The party of the incumbent president tends to lose ground during midterm elections: over the past 21 midterm elections, the President's party has lost an average 30 seats in the House, and an average 4 seats in the Senate; moreover, in only two of those has the President's party gained seats in both houses.

    When I meet a Christian who can get through a day without breaking at least one commandment then I will consider this "shunning". the Jesus I follow died for my sins, yours and gays. As I understand it, Jesus loves sinners.


    I guess you don't
    Pretty sure we're all sinners.... that's a fact. But some of us are trying to reform ourselves and don't wear a badge that says "Hey I openly sin but want to vote Republican"

    Jesus and I do love our fellow man. That's why he said "Go forth and sin NO MORE"

    Then you obviously don't understand the meaning of the word always, and if you think 2014 was typical, then you weren't paying attention. Both 2010 and 2014 were huge defeats for the Democrats by any measure. Trying to obscure those two shellackings is pretty disingenuous.

    Try asking them. That's a good way to find out.

    Translation: They already discriminate, so a little more discrimination shouldn't hurt.

    Welp, I guess that means all the Westboro Baptist Church should just STFU already.

    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.

    2010 was.. I even mentioned it. 2014? No, I'll nick pick like you are about me using the word always. You obviously don't know the meaning of the word shellacking. Losing 13 and 9 is not a shellacking.

    Anyway you keep believing the GOP doesn't need to diversify. The DNC appreciates that kind of thinking.

    Good Day.

    I've been intimately familiar with senior leaders in both GOProud and Log Cabin Republicans and it pains me immensely that these valuable, bright, and courageous men and women are so obviously rejected by huge portions of the party. At best they are held up as baubles to trot out in front of the media when accusations of bigotry are hurled their way and more usually they are ignored or shunted aside as though they are a dirty little secret. The insularity of the aging social conservative mass which exerts so much control over the party is horrendously destructive. I'm still stunned when I attend conventions or go to local GOP events and I'm confronted with the same slogans about gay marriage or 'traditional marriage' that I heard ten years ago. It's mind boggling that so many people haven't been able to realize that the world has changed and that they need to bury the god damn hatchet. It's why we'll nominate a candidate who will be too afraid to accept SSM in 2016 and one of the many reasons we'll be successfully tarred as the party of reactionaries and cultural dinosaurs. It might also be one of the reasons we lose.

    But by all means have your convention. We all know gays can't be conservative people of faith.
