Posted on 08/28/2010 12:18:06 AM PDT by DesertRenegade
A growing number of Republicans are breaking with the party's traditional stance to publicly state their support for same-sex marriage, a shift strategists say stems as much from demographics as from the renewed focus on economics and the "tea party" movement.
A solid majority of adults younger than 30 - about six in 10 - support the right of gay and lesbian couples to legally wed, according to a Washington Post poll in February.
But even many older Americans and self-identified social conservatives have changed their view on an issue that just six years ago galvanized voters in support of President George W. Bush's reelection.
Gay Republican activists credit the shift to the heightened attention within the GOP base to jobs and the economy, and by a desire among strategists to expand the party's appeal.

The Log Cabin Republicans do not write the Republican Party Platform.
No agenda here,
True, Marriage is between One Man and One Woman, that is a Sacrament and one that many are prepared to sacrifice for.
However, I also believe that in the US the Constitution Rules, and one may contract for whatever one wishes aside from Slavery.
That’s funny...in my state (Oregon), it’s written in the constitution that marriage is between one man and one woman.
And, this is Oregon!!!
These types of stories are written to try to get the Republican base to stay home in November.
When the moral underpinnings of our country are successfully smashed, you can even contract to kill little babies.
“Support” is an overly optimistic term.
Gay marriage still hung up in committee
Like a contract for murder foe example?
Gay marriage is an abomination of the highest order. Nor brain dead piece of propaganda from the fast fading Washington Post is going to change that.
Two parties on one hand cart pushing this nation as fast as they can in the same direction on a track heading straight for Hell.
Pretty much. And to get conservatives to stop fighting the homosexual marriage abomination. Not gonna happen.
However, I also believe that in the US the Constitution Rules, and one may contract for whatever one wishesOnly if it's legal. In some states it's illegal.
Indeed, consider the source.
This is why FR exists.
Let them call it Fratrimony for lack of a better word. And a man cannot have a husband, that's just creepy. Call the other guy a brubond.
Evil will never accept that there are people with core values; Values that are at the core of our very being.
Evil just doesn't get it that some things ARE carved in granite and we laugh at their attempts to change us.
"Dawn Wildman, a coordinator for the California Tea Party Patriots, who said she personally opposes gay marriage. "But I have this strong belief in individualism. Not to mention that we don't have the luxury to think of the social issues right now.""
Just the kind of faux Tea Party type the Left wants to promote.
Who are these people the MSM are employing nowadays. It seems that most "journalists" today are Muslim.

“TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY” is pretty specific as to what the tea party types are. He seems to fit the definition. Trying to impose your litmus tests and agendas beyond its purpose will kill it. Inevitable I suppose, and pretty much what Lindsey Graham predicted.

To me that sounds like a name of somebody descended from India. Unlike you I don’t know the religion of a writer just by looking at a non-Islamic name, but while you can’t rule out a Muslim I’d think the odds would favor either Hindu or Christian.
