    A question for members of the Tea Party?

    Where do you stand on LGBT issues? Do you support or are against things like Same Sex Marriage, spousal benefits, adoption rights, DADT, anti-discrimination laws? And why?

    What's wrong with getting some insights from a group of people in a political movement concerning a specific set of issues?

    What are you talking about? You have a problem with me asking questions? And I didn't know all LGBT people were influenced by this site

    How interesting. You just assume there are no LGBT members in the Tea Party.

    Re: A question for members of the Tea Party?

    I consider myself someone who agrees with the foundation of the tea party. I am for same sex marriage, for spousal right, for gay adoption and.....I didn't choose on the anti-discrimination laws because there are always 12,000 other things stuffed into a law that have zero to do with the actual law.....so I can't be for that unless I agree with EVERYTHING that's in the law.

    Re: A question for members of the Tea Party?

    I don't think that there would be any consensus about this in the Tea Party. The movement to me seems based wholly on economic and budgetary issues, not social issues.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    Re: A question for members of the Tea Party?

    Phat's right. The tea party, while it seems by liberal media outlets to have been hijacked by the right-wing Bible thumper crowd, still has its grass roots of anti-taxation minarchists like myself. For many libertarians, social issues are a non-factor. It ultimately boils down to government staying out of the affairs of people who can make informed, conscious choices on their own without bureaucratic red-tape or Big Brother interference.

    I, for one, have absolutely no qualms with gays being allowed benefits allowed married couples through the use of civil unions, and additionally have no problem with adoption.

    The whole "tea party is anti-gay" crap has been sensationalized by those Big Tent Obama worshippers who are slinging mud at anyone on the wrong end of center-left in a feeble attempt to marginalize core American values. It's a thinly veiled attempt, and I expect the midterms to be a harbinger of a crossfire on this.
