Homosexual Republican Group Calls Pro-Family Activists "Domestic Terrorists"

Homosexual Republican Group Calls Pro-Family Activists "Domestic Terrorists"

By Kathleen Gilbert

ATLANTA, Georgia, February 24, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A homosexualist Republican group is lobbying GOP chairman Michael Steele to turn a deaf ear to pro-family activists, who the group leader labeled in a letter "Anti-American" and "domestic terrorists." James Ensley, President of the Georgia Log Cabin Republicans (LCR), made the comments after the pro-family group, Americans for Truth, petitioned Steele to work to return the GOP to its conservative roots and protect true marriage.

"I want to urge you not to allow small biggoted [sic], anti-American and anti-Christian fringe groups such as Americans for Truth to influence you," wrote Ensley in a letter addressed to Steele.

"Groups like Americans for Truth simply want to divide Americans, and truthfully their group would be more welcome as a mainstream Nazi Germany organization, than an organization which provides any value at all in 21st Century America," Ensley continued. 

Ensley said he hoped Steele would support the LCR, a radically homosexualist group, "and not listen to the radical Christian extremist domestic terrorist groups such as Americans for Truth." 

Log Cabin had praised Steele's election as chairman of the GOP last month, saying the former Maryland lieutenant governor "believes in a big tent GOP" and "is an inclusive leader who will bring a new energy and a new vision to the GOP at a critical time."  Following Log Cabin's endorsement of Steele, Americans for Truth of Homosexuality (AFTAH) petitioned Steele to strengthen the GOP's conservative roots by protecting marriage as between one man and one woman. 

WorldNetDaily (WND) reports that the Georgia Republican Party responded to Ensley's inflammatory rhetoric, stating, "While a healthy debate on the issues can help strengthen us as a party, to use the word 'terrorist' to describe those that disagree with you is not appropriate." Georgia GOP spokesman Doug Reineke emphasized that the Log Cabin Republicans were an independent group not officially associated with the Georgia Republican Party.

Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) "really have an anti-Christian animus, an anti-Christian bigotry about them, which would actually stoop to calling us ... terrorists," AFTAH President LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN).

"We see the same trend: this Log Cabin group is seated as if it's a hugely important constituency to the GOP, and what I'm trying to tell people is: 'Look, these guys have 20,000 members nationwide - 20,000,'" La Barbera said.  "It's a tiny organization that's not worth losing millions and millions of conservatives, pro-life, pro-family Republicans over."

After Californians voted into law Proposition 8, adding to the state constitution the true definition of marriage, LCR sent an amicus brief to the California Supreme Court arguing that the voter-approved amendment should be overturned because it denies a "fundamental right" to same-sex "marriage."

"If you're crusading to overturn the popular will of California voters on defending marriage between a man and a woman - to me, don't call yourself a Republican," LaBarbera told LSN.  "That's a radical thing to do - even some gays don't say we should overturn that vote.  There's really nothing distinguishing them - when it comes to the hardcore homosexual activism - they're just like the Democratic gay activists.  That's what they value most highly. "

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute also condemned Ensley's words, stating: "It appears that James Ensley just came out of his bigot closet, hurling pernicious charges - with no evidence - at not only Mr. LaBarbera but also at countless others who share the view that homosexual behavior is immoral behavior." (See: http://www.illinoisfamily.org/news/contentview.asp?c=34271)

Both AFTAH and the Illinois Family Institute are encouraging followers to urge Steele to oppose the homosexualist agenda.

They share a common, larger goal with the left in general (and their “father”), that’s why.

Destruction of the traditional family.

When that goes, so goes all transmission of faith and civilized behavior.

Yeah, what the GOP desperately needs to survive and flourish is the queer, hip hop demographic all hooked up on Twitter. It's the magic bullet. /s/

The Republicans cannot afford to lose the support of their core constituency in order to cater to small groups that will not deliver significant votes. Becoming Dem-lite is not a solution.

The Republican party has been incrementally abandoning what was once it's core constituency consisting of conservatives with the big tent mentality by appeasing the socialist left and one result is attracting the LCR to the party. This situation would never had occurred if the Republican party stood firm on conservative principles all along.

There’s a business a few miles over the State border where I live. The business has the word “Christian” in it. Everyone initially thinks “Oh, this is a Christian, he’ll understand my financial straits, so I’ll call him.” HA! He charges 50% MORE than the other businesses of like product for private homes. He stays in business because he mercilessly underbids other businesses to get contracts.

Just because the word “Christian” is in a title doesn’t mean the person or the business is actually “Christ-like.” Just because the word “Republican” is in a title doesn’t mean a thing, either.

That’s why we ALL must email Mr. Steele and support him for NOT including tangential agendas in The Republican Party.

Militant homosexualism is inconsistent with traditional Republican values as are efforts to mainstream homosexualism in the party and to redefine the meaning of what constitutes a family.

Calling pro-family republicans "Anti-American" and "domestic terrorists" are views and tactics unacceptable in a Republican party that stands for traditional American values.

Cut these people loose - with their values and methods they will be more at home in the Freak Party Democrat party.

Mr.Ensley.For over 230 some years your choice of homosexual activity was considered an ILLEGAL act by Law and by the vast majority of Americans that lived during that period of time. It was considered immoral and depraved activity. So how do you call Americans today that still have that belief Un American? You are only fooling yourself.

The “domestic terrorists” are the anti-Prop 8 types in California.

Remember how that little old Christian woman was treated while trying to be interviewed for TV?

How about posting the names and residential maps of Prop 8 supporters?

Exactly! When marriage amendments were on the ballot in 2000, even the Amish, we don't traditionally get involved in politics or voting, came out in droves and voted for President Bush. That alone speaks volumes. That also explains clearly why Republicans have lost since they enacted the stupid big tent.

How many people are members of Phelps’ family cult? 40? Look at all of the press they get (slurring those who oppose the norming of homosexuality and the religious right).

Notice how the Democrats who disagree with party leadership (on bailouts, nationalized medicine, abortion, gun control, etc.) never get any press.

Incredible. Log Cabin Repubs [sic] are merely another branch of radical homosexual activists whose aim is destroy the Republican party. What’s left of it, anyway. The guys in positions of power in the GOP seem to be all eunuchs and RINOS or full-on leftists.

Someone on antoher thread today said they heard on Laura Ingraham that Michael Steele wants Washington DC to have statehood. Then there will be even more D Senators. Leftist crap.

During the OK “Johnny Jihad” bomber news, I was freepmailed about something very interesting.

The rumor was that once congresscritters etc get to DC, they are invited to parties put on by Saudis, who provide male and female underage prostitutes. Later said congresscritters etc are shown the videos, and then do the bidding of the Saudis.

I have not a speck of an idea whether this is true or not; perhaps some truth. But I have a suspicion, just based on motherwit, that many suits in DC are either blackmailed by others (not just Saudis) and/or paid for.

The GOP is practically over. If Steele actually wants DC to be a state - someone heard it on Laura Ingraham, I asked for more info - then it’s freaking toast. Steele has some major issues AFAIAC.
