GOP Platform Is Most “Anti-LBGT” In History Or Something

The Republican party has long stood against gay marriage, and now they have added opposition to the gender confused in the bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers of the opposite biological sex. This has caused a bit of a freakout

(WTVD) The country’s largest organization representing LGBT conservatives has slammed the GOP for its draft party platform, which remains opposed to same-sex marriage and bathroom choice for transgender people.

“There’s no way to sugar-coat this: I’m mad as h*** — and I know you are, too,” Gregory T. Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans, wrote in a fundraising email sent Tuesday evening. “Moments ago, the Republican Party passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party’s 162-year history.”

Angelo continued, “Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of ‘pray the gay away’ – it’s all in there.”

What did Angelo think was going to happen? That the GOP would suddenly come out in favor of those things?

The GOP’s current draft platform — prepared in advanced of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, kicking off July 18 — defines marriage “as the union of one man and one woman” and calls for a reversal of the 2015 Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.

As it should. One thing they could have in there is the notion of governmentally recognized civil union, since this is America, founded on the notion, among others, that if it isn’t actually negatively affecting you, why do you care? If two people love each other, that love should be able to be formalized under the eyes of the law.

There is no “conversion therapy” within the bill.

Rachel Hoff, an openly gay defense lobbyist for a center-right policy center, was among the GOP platform committee members who gathered Monday to shape the party’s platform. She called for the GOP to take a neutral position on same-sex marriage.

Yes, let’s push the GOP over towards the Democratic side.

Citing Trump, the Log Cabin Republicans’ Angelo said, “This isn’t my GOP, and I know it’s not yours either. Heck, it’s not even Donald Trump’s! When given a chance to follow the lead of our presumptive presidential nominee and reach out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful terrorist massacre in Orlando on the gay nightclub Pulse, the Platform Committee said NO.”

It’s been this way for a long time, explicitly ever since leftists started pushing their gay marriage agenda. And as far as transgenders go, well, Republicans are going to take a stand against opening up bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to people who do not belong in there due to their actual biology, much less the fact that bad people will take advantage of those types of policies to do bad things.
