Skip to comments.Retired naval officer calls for gay marriage in GOP platform
Posted on 08/09/2012 2:17:35 PM PDT by scottjewell
A retired Navy captain is asking Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell to support adding marriage equality to the GOP platform. McDonnell chairs the committee that will propose a platform at the national convention in Tampa later this month.
Retired Navy Capt. Joan Darrah, in a letter to McDonnell, said the freedom to marry is in keeping with the partys ideology.
If given the opportunity, we will testify in support of the inclusion in the Republican platform of both the repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and the right of same-gender couples to marry and for those marriages to be recognized by our federal government, Darrah wrote.
Quite simply, these objectives correspond with the ideals of the Republican Party opposition to government intrusion in peoples lives and a modern military that supports all service members and their families.

... and the Mittens-ization of the party proceeds apace.
And that will be the death of the GOP.
This clown doesn’t have a full seabag.
Clearly a Democrat-Obama plant who wants to knock the social conservatives completely out of the election.
Particularly now that so many African-American clergy are speaking out against Obama because of his ‘evolution’ towards ‘gay marriage.’
Maybe the thought of a gay marriage plank at the Tampa RNC will awaken Mitzi and make him go anti-gay marriage?
Remove him from the committee. Period.
It would be political suicide.
It's already here.
Methinks perhaps Joan was retired from the Navy on a section 8.
Log Cabin Republicans announced yesterday that they are part of the process on the platform this time as well.
He’s just mad “Don’t ask, don’t tell” outlasted him.
Another one irked at the failure of the Chick-Fil-A “kiss-in”?
Here is a pic:
This man is no shipmate of mine.
Or a Section Q
Make that She/her.
Misread “Joan” as “John”.
She is demanding gay marriage.
Let her go somewhere else (Saudia Arabia, perhaps) to peddle her pro-sodomy ideology.
"Did somebody say Section 8?"
Just about anybody can "call for" just about anything and it means nothing.
Let’s see...the Captain’s period of active-duty service began well before “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” during the days when recruits were questioned on their sexual identity and being gay was grounds for dismissal from service. I’m guessing the Captain lied back then, so she’s guilty of fraudulent enlistment (at a minimum). Too bad we can’t bring her back to active duty, charge her with that crime under the UCMJ and collect hundreds of thousands of dollars in active duty and retired pay that she has received improperly.
Funny how that little legal technicality never makes its way into stories like this one.
And nothing but ballast between the ears.
Pic at Post #14; yuk.
I'm guessing it was Jimmy Carter or John McCain.
"The letter for Monday is from Lynne Kennedy, partner to Capt. Joan Darrah, U.S. Navy (Ret.). The couple has been together for 20 years this December."
There's no such thing as homosexual tolerance. It was a very successful public silencing campaign, but behind the voting curtain it's a different story. The fascists have no control over the voters minds in the privacy of the voting booth.
Well they’ve already nominated a candidate who did more for gay marriage as governor than Obama did as president.
So why not go ahead and put in their platform what they stand for. For that matter, they could copy the democrats platform.
The GOP platform could just be a big “ME TOO!”.
Let the exodus of both parties begin to a real alternative.
They’re everywhere. Sheesh!
It’s not about marriage. It’s a door for letting in any kind of depravity.
It’s been coming for yearsdrip, drip, drip.
0bama’s agendaDivide and conquer. We see it in everything he does.
That’s the Alinsky way.
Make it stop!!!!
I always knew there was something funny about squids.
Two shriveled old prunes.... makes me shudder to think about what they look like or do with each other.
They’re both wives?
Husbands??? We don’ need no steenking husbands!
Yep, going the way of the Whigs. Needs to be replaced by something close to the Tea Party concept.
Romney supported the proposed Constitutional Amendment in Massachusetts defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is an easily verifiable fact.
The Massachusetts Supreme Court's specious "interpretation" of the state constitution is the reason "gay marriage" is the status quo at this time. (Goodridge vs. Dept. of Public Health) The 80% Rat legislature obstructed the Constitutional Amendment vote in order to allow the supreme court's "gay marriage" interpretation to stand in MA.
The effect of the MA Supreme Court's ridiculous interpretation of the state constitution regarding "gay marriage" is an exact parallel to the current legal situation in regard to Obamacare. We need the Congress to overthrow Obamacare or we are stuck with John Robert's court's bizarre ruling, and in MA, action by the legislature was necessary to prevent the supreme court's ruling from remaining the final word on the subject. Unfortunately, the Rat legislature, with their obstructionist tactics, chose to trample the citizens' right to vote.
It's within the realm of possibility that the state constitution could be amended in future under a less corrupt legislature.
Just curious, but is the Navy ahead of the other branches of Service in terms of advocating open homosexuality in uniform? It was Admiral Mullen who also pushed the queer banner in everyone’s faces.
Go for it. In fact the GOP should just merge with the Democrats. There’s not enough difference to justify the existence of two parties.
I favor immediate firing of any person in the Republican Party who ever uses the words inclusion or diversity favorably in the current political context. Maybe if they’re talking about food, and that’s about it.
Right, merge them and then have a new right party.

Well, yes it is about the destruction of language and meaning in Western Civ—so words like”marriage” will be destroyed and meaningless, so the Marxists can control the thoughts of all children (Create their proper Worldview). Textbooks (like in CA marriage licenses will no longer be allow words like wife or husband or mother or father to be used for textbooks. Nor “partner” because actually marriage will be between Party A and Party B and eventually C,D, E, F etc-—either males, females, or both. It won’t mean anything. And children will be able to be like objects, used in negotiations, and given out like birth control pills—or the State will raise them. Biology is meaningless.
Marx hated God (religion) and the natural family. The family unit is essential for emotional health of children so they become independent and emotionally secure—but those type of people are to be eliminated because they are dangerous to the Power that be.
Read 1984 and The Brave New World. That is their vision—where the word mother is a filthy word and makes people vomit. It is conditioning so all biological connections are destroyed (Laws of Nature obsolete) so that an artificial world-—dictated by the elites—who want the “all type of sex anytime” paradigm—like was rampant in Ancient cultures and eliminated only in places where Judeo-Christian Ethics were adopted.
To make Sodomy a “Right”, eliminates Judeo-Christian Ethics and destroys the Rights of our Constitution. Only Rights from God are recognized, but they want God “dead”—as Nietzsche so well stated in the 1800’.
To establish Sodomy (a Vice) as a Right-—we also eliminate Reason from the Law. Right Reason according to Just Law is the understood rationality that was essential for ALL LAW in the US. Reason does not exist with Sodomy which is not only unnatural—it is an impossible concept—two men can never be one flesh—and ALL American legal dictionaries defined marriage as one woman and one man.
How can a group of people with such a warped, evil way to see human beings—get to decide a “NEW” Ethical system based on Vice is Good??????
Bizarre and Irrational.
Pederasty was the norm-—The Satanists want God killed, so they can go after the boys. The founder of the Homosexual movement, Harry Hays, liked boys—after all he was sodomized by a sailor at 11 and loved it and wants all boys to have such “Freedom” and “Love”.
Chambers stated the culture war in 52 in his book, “Witness”. it is God vs. Man. Been going on since Adam but really got warped and sick with Marx after centuries of Christianity in the West.
These sick warped bastards think their Rights come from Satan.
In this country-—we give our oath to God—and our NATURAL RIGHTS come from God-—not some warped mind, like Barney Frank and Sandusky.
Trying to force laws which promote Vice is EVIL and Unjust Law. There is no more rationality to marrying the same sex than marrying a dog.
Law has to contain Reason and be in line with Natural Moral Law-—not the irrationality of Marx.
