    This guy sounds pretty good for a Republican. I would vote to re-elect him if he continues to support liberties like these (if I lived in his state).
    Vote John Schnatter (Papa John) 2012!

    No actually I don't. I think about 30% of Republicans compose the right-wing. They just control about 95% of the party.

    The Republican Party has plenty of gays in it. Granted, very few of them are openly gay, but when you count the closeted ones, they are well represented.
    And, like the black and hispanic populations in the United States, the Leftsits use them as fodder for their campaigns, not really giving a **** about anything other than getting elected. Where are the Liberals going to be if all these problems are suddenly solved? Out in political no-man's-land, because if it weren't for identity/victim politics, the Liberals wouldn't stand a chance at the voting booth.

    I would be interested in a more in depth answer than "my views have evolved" other than that, good for him.

    And you stole that line from a crossdresser! Now that's progressive of you!

    I don't think republicans in general "hate' gays, but they certainly don't approve of their lifestyle and seek to block that lifestyle from being accepted. I.E. marriage rights.

    The reason why the presumption "Republicans just hate gays" gets thrown out a lot...by liberals no less...is because gay people are yet, just seen as another electorate for the democrat party.

    No, maybe it's because they're being treated as second-class citizens. They're only another "democrat party" electorate because the "republic party" treats them the way they do.
