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."

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

"Look, these guys have 20,000 members nationwide - 20,000"
Why are they even getting the time of day!
Throw out the enemy within our ranks!
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/
There ARE no true “Republican Homosexuals”. Get lost, beat it to the Demoncraps Party. We don’t want you and we can win without you.
Kick em out.
Homos are a cancer on society.
Tell them to take their logs and their cabins over to the DemonRATs.
They would “fit-in” better there, with the likes of Bawney Fwank.
What are a bunch of queers doing in the Republican Party in the first place?
The Log Cabin gang is encouraged by Rick Warren and Joel Osteen I guess?
Time to dump the log cabin gang, as well as Collins and Snow etc.
...”radical Christian extremist domestic terrorist”...
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.
bone smugglin/turd burglars all.
either change parties or back to the closet with ye and STFU.
They like the economic restraint of Republican policies but hate the social policies like pro life.
The face of the modern GOP.
“There ARE no true Republican Homosexuals”
Well said, not possible.
I believe the term Republican Homosexual is an OXYMORON.
