If the right can managa to successfully intergrate homosexuals into their party or at least have the gay GOPers and the straight ones overcome their differences to face the common enemy, then not only will people be more drawn to the Republican party, but also they may stop being hated on so much.
    That is the dumbest interpretation of the first amendment that I have ever seen. Which oddly enough, doesn't call for a separation of church and state, but to keep government out of religion. Religion is an extremely important part of any culture, and will influence the opinions of many. So claiming that the culture or beliefs related to religion should be left out of voting disenfranchises the majority of America. You'll know when the government starts breaking the 1st Amendment because either 1) religious people will have to hide it from the public, or 2) you will be church on Sunday, or Saturday, depending on what religion the government chooses for you.

    With that said, I put into my last post why it wasn't actually Christianity that would attack homosexuality. It's not part of the actual program. It doesn't matter if you're homophobic or not, their beliefs and ideas are just as valuable as anyone else's.

    Gibberesh,

    Are you suggesting that homosexuals remain sexually oppressed due to the fact that they don't want to pay as many taxes?

    LOL -- that's what they been doing to the evangelicals for years... taking their vote, but really doing nothing but posturing and making noise on social issues.

    Family Values conservatives get as many bjs (from men and interns) as their "liberal" counterparts.

    Tactical error. When you keep doing that eventually people start voting for the other guys. (or as we see now, a third party)

    You heard the crowd there, NP. People aren't sharing your views much these days.

    The issue is complex because people with same-sex attractions often don't identify as gay. People who identify as gay are self-labeling. So it's a bit of a misnomer to say that there are closeted gays voting for Republicans, because that would in turn presume that all closeted gays identify as gay in the first place.

    There are lots of "straight" guys that vote Republican who have had same-sex relations in their lifetimes. Ted Haggard comes to mind.

    I don't see how labeling the sexual demographic in the voting process is useful.

    a whole lot of gays voted republican

    in massachusetts, virginia, new jersey

    a whole lot of gays will do so in nevada

    and pennsylvania, delaware, north dakota

    just like in the bay state, they'll join happily with conservatives and independents and lipton lovers and bible thumpers and dems who can do math and libertarians...

    all united passionately on one thing

    VEHEMENT opposition to obama

    the only explanation for THIRTY POINT SWINGS in all bailiwicks

    so far, it's made for a lovely political marriage

    party on, progressives

    be proud!
