Gays constitute a tiny minority of the U.S. population, less than 2% to be precise.
Excluded From Inclusion – NYT
WHAT the Republicans painstakingly constructed here was meant to look like the biggest of tents. And still they couldnt spare so much as a sleeping bags worth of space for the likes of me.
Women were welcomed. During the prime evening television hours, the convention stage was festooned with them, and when they werent at the microphone, they were front and center in mens remarks. Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney both gushed about their moms in tributes as tactical as they were teary.
Latinos were plentiful and flexed their Spanish En América, todo es posible, said Susana Martinez, the New Mexico governor despite an English First plank in the partys regressive platform.
And while one preconvention poll suggested that roughly zero percent of African-Americans support Romney, Republicans found several prominent black leaders to testify for him. Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state, delivered what will surely be remembered as the conventions most stirring and substantive remarks, purged of catcalls and devoid of slickly rendered fibs.
But you certainly didnt see anyone openly gay on the stage in Tampa. More to the point, you didnt hear mention of gays and lesbians. Scratch that: Mike Huckabee, who has completed a ratings-minded transformation from genial pol to dyspeptic pundit, made a derisive reference to President Obamas support for same-sex marriage. We were thus allowed a fleeting moment inside the tent, only to be flogged and sent back out into the cold.
I think the NYT reporters and writers should read Leviticus 18:22.
What percentage of people are gay in this country? Why do Democrats think it is cool to talk about the gay community all the time? Is the media full of gays too?
Oh, yeah, he did slip up twice ~ wanted forced adoptions of straight chillun' to flamboyant gays, and he wanted homosexual activists to become scoutmasters.
Otherwise, pretty quiet ~ no big thing ~ dude's probably going to get busted for some of this stuff some day, but pretty quiet at the moment.
Then there's the other guy. He's gay too.
You do realize that convention delegates were chosen months ago by local and state conventions all across the country right? You do realize that even a small space would be reserved for ... a REPUBLICAN, right?
The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.
I count the homosexual population as being one of the most intransigent segment of the voting population. But they’re only two or three percent of the voters. And even given the so-called anti-gay agenda of the Republicans, they still get about one third of the homosexual vote. That means to pander to the homosexual lobby would be to try and placate about one or two percent of the population. And that assumes all homosexuals vote which they don’t. Pandering would lose more votes for the Pubbies than they would gain. So what’s the point in pandering?
Not pandering to perversion is good with me
A culture that embraces decadence cannot prosper.
DemocRATS like putting people in categories and groups. Dividing the country is their specialty.
Never will you hear them including the middle class white male in their groups. Because to them, that’s the problem.
An oversized percentage of homosexuals do work for the media. Especially in the areas of commentary and direction of what stories get focused. Many work for the Slimes and the Compost.
About 2% of the population, and probably 50% of network new is gay. Actually I don’t know how many, but the media is full of gays. That is the only reason it’s an issue. IMO, I though what someone did sexually was nobody’s business if there are two consenting adults. If so, why is it an issue?
And don't let the door hit you on the butt on your way out.
If you can't support Romney because it's the right thing to do for the country rather than your own little (pervert) constituent group, then to hell with ya.
You think Romney is gay?!?!?!?!
I admit sometimes I am floored by revelations of homosexuality. And that the higher some people climb the more perverse they seem to get, but that accusation seems twisted to me.
It seems gays do not like Romney. Blacks do not seem to like Romney. Romney would probably help these groups better than Obama but they are too emotional to understand the truth.
