Gay GOP Group in 'Ongoing' Discussions With Romney Campaign, RNC
Christian Post ^ | May 3, 2012 | 6:36 am | Paul Stanley

Log Cabin Republicans, a gay political action group, is in "ongoing" discussions with Mitt Romney's campaign and the Republican National Committee on a variety of issues, said the group's director, which most likely includes same-sex marriage and employment discrimination policies. The group will be meeting over the summer to determine whether to endorse Romney prior to the GOP convention.

"I can't confirm the details of our conversations because they are of a 'private nature,'" the group's Deputy Executive Director Christian Berle told The Christian Post. "We're in ongoing conversations with the Romney campaign and the RNC on the issues that are important to gay Republicans."

Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Times reported that Log Cabin Republicans founder Rich Tafel said that "I think he (Romney) does oppose gay marriage, but the speed with which he jumped on and rode that issue struck me as political." During Romney's 1994 campaign for U.S. Senate, the candidate had written to the Massachusetts chapter of Log Cabin Republicans to voice his support of full equality for LGBT citizens. But after taking office as Massachusetts governor in 2003, Romney said he disagreed with the state's Supreme Court's "Goodrich" ruling, which says same-sex marriage is protected in the state's constitution.

"I disagree with the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts," then Gov. Romney said in 2003. "Marriage is an institution between a man and a woman. I will support an amendment to the Massachusetts constitution to make this expressly clear." …

While Berle was mum about details of the "ongoing" conversations with the Romney campaign and RNC, one likely issue might be adding openly gay individuals to the Romney campaign staff. Yet on Tuesday, gay activist Richard Grenell, who was helping with foreign policy issues, announced he was leaving the Romney campaign. …

Mitt’s not negotiating with the perverts, they’re on the same side. They’re holding strategy meetings.

They think they need to court the gay vote to win:

They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” - (Genesis 19:5)

We already know how this story ends.

Who gives a shit what the Log Cabin Perverts do? They faded into obscurity years ago, with GOProud taking the limelight. And what’s to “discuss”? Does Romney really think he will get the double-gated vote no matter what he promises? they are (ahem) hard left, and always will be. Pathetic.

I think that is more accurate but far worse. If it’s Obama’s job to make people miss Carter, it’s Mitt’s job to make us miss Ford.

Romney is a liberal and has catered to them in the past but now that it looks like he’s the GOP nominee for president, I don’t think there is anyway in hell he would ever come out in support of sodomite marriage. The Morman Church would disown him. The are adamantly opposed to it as they rightly should be.

Romney probably doesn't know that he won't get any gay votes.

He appears to be quite unfamiliar with Republican party history concerning gays IN THE PARTY ~ they were used to defeat us in 2006 ~ it wasn't all Bush "bush" eh!

Actually, Romney appears to be unfamiliar with the Republican party ~ even though he served 4 years as the "token Republican Governor of Massachusetts'.

I think all the Republicans are gay.

Not surprised:

***

Mitt Romney To The Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts: "My approach to government is consistent with the values & vision of government we share." […] "I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for American gay & lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent." (His opponent? Senator Ted Kennedy. Full "equality" is a term the homosexual community uses to describe gay "marriage" & pushing the gay agenda into the mainstream.)

- "We must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern." "I can and will." - Mitt Romney

"I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays & lesbians being able to service openly & honestly in our nation's miliary. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians in the mainstream concern." - Mitt Romney

God help us if he’s elected. He’ll wear his magic underwear to his inauguration and be the grand marshall at his celebratory poofter parade!

He will not get my vote.

The article says the gay spokesman claimed there are ongoing "discussions". It is not clear to me how you got from the gay spokesman's claim to your claim that "negotiations" are in fact taking place, especially in the absence of any word from Team Romney on the subject.

It is worth noting that the LDS church took a clear and public stand against gay marriage here in California and took a lot of heat over it.

Ok, in “discussions” with perverts ... no matter how you describe it, he is cavorting with perverts in an attempt to get elected.

Not something I would be proud of, but then again, I’m not running for President.

Romney will never get my vote.

Preferences for gays, now? We know they are so oppressed and that is why they run the entertainment industry and the sex baiting departments at our Universities. They are so oppressed and this is why no Christian has whomped them for vandalizing churches and threatening to rape Rick Santorum.

If this guy is elected, the Repub party will give up any pretense of any social conservatism. Those who are pushing him will be advocating gay marriage e.t.c.

“Log Cabin Republicans, a gay political action group”
Isn’t this an oxymoron?
