Skip to comments.The GOP's Gay-Rights Reboot: An effort to change the Republican Party's platform.
Posted on 07/14/2014 8:53:25 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Inside the offices of Republican gay-rights groups, a strategy is forming to convince party leaders to strip opposition to gay marriage from the GOP platform.
The target, operatives say, is to see party leaders drop their support for a gay-marriage ban in time for the Republican National Convention in summer 2016.
It's a long shot, but Republican gay-rights lobbyists think they can build on the momentum provided by courts nationwide and the belief that, philosophically, the GOP's social conservatives are fighting a battle that puts them well out of step with the majority of the country, and that could demographically doom national aspirations.
"The ground has never been more inviting and welcoming to someone changing their position on the issue," said Marc Solomon, a former Republican Hill staffer, now with Freedom to Marry. "Where the polling is on the issue, it shows that we have a real legitimate chance at victory in 2016."
A group called Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry is part of the effort to remove the traditional-marriage plank from the GOP platform at the Cleveland convention. Already, the group has met with state and county party officials in New Hampshire, and they're planning trips to Iowa in August and to South Carolina and Nevada in September.

Fully indoctrinated college republicans are driving it along with completely fake republicans who vote straight ticket democrat.
I’ve got a militant lesbian cousin who is a hard left marxist yet calls herself a republican for effect only. She’s never voted for a republican in her life.
GOP RINO homos have the same agenda as DNC crazy lefty homos.
The Republican left has gladly given up its faux resistance to sexual perversion and embraced the homosexual agenda. Their excitement is barely containable, and it won’t be surprising when the Republican left embraces the next logical steps, pedophilia, and polygamy. After all, the dirty little secret of homosexuality is that its root cause is pedophilia, and the big lie, “It’s in the genes,” can readily be used in support of polygamy.
Serious question: why don’t RINOs simply become Democrats? What keeps them from doing so? I don’t think I’ve ever heard an explanation for it, and I do not have one. Anyone?
Won’t work—People won’t vote for a RINO when they can have the real thing.
RE: Fully indoctrinated college republicans are driving it along with completely fake republicans who vote straight ticket democrat.
This is happening in churches too. The Gay Mafia is learning from the Alinsky and Marxist playbook — INFILTRATION.
For instance, the United Methodist Church, PCUSA and other big Protestant denominations still have many local churches whose pastors DO NOT SUPPORT gay marriage or the homosexual lifestyle. The gays would target these churches for infiltration, have sympathetic members join these churches and then slowly introduce resolutions in these local churches to slowly but surely “loosen” their moral restrictions.
Evil does not work in one big bang. it works slowly, but surely to influence you.
Party will be dead quicker than you can say ‘whig’.
“why dont RINOs simply become Democrats?”
The soros cabal pays them handsomely to stay in the GOP to divide the GOP.
At one time "the majority of the country" (different country) thought the world was flat, too.
Screw'em. Right is right - and this ain't.
Huh? Might as well have a group called "Young Satanists for Christ", or "Young Pacifists for War". Homo marriage, homo adoption, homo rights, it makes no difference. Nothing about homosexuality is conservative. It is the polar opposite of conservatism. Get that through your heads, Pubbies!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Says all one needs to know about the movement.
No longer a nation of laws, but a nation of lawyers.
Multiple votes where people have overwhelming said, "NO!" and the courts overthrow it on the whims of one black-robed dictator.
Romney Republican chickens coming home to roost.
The GOPe’s motto should be: “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”
Is same-sex marriage really a right? If so, by what standard is it a right? Who said and by what authority?
What reasons, other than religious reasons, might someone want to keep marriage defined as only the union of one man and one woman?
Anyone who opposes same-sex marriage is wrong, says the gay mafiathe term the liberal TV personality Bill Maher gave to homosexual activists who whack dissenters.
When RNC committeeman Dave Agema spoke out they tried to destroy him. They were mostly angry because he told the truth.
The GOP platform is a thin coat of paint to fool voters and the opposition to gay marriage is one the party has no intent of standing by.
It's all about having the majority in Congress. Then your seniority gives you the very best that tax dollars can buy. Seniority of the Majority gets the best offices, biggest staff, best perks, best insider trading info, sexist interns, most freebies from lobbyists, all the while claiming to be for the "little man."
“I would say in America’s suburbs this is quite often the No. 1 test for younger voters”
Then they deserve to be jobless. They deserve to be taxed to death. If this is how STUPID young people are, let them starve.
