Skip to comments.Gay Republicans face long odds in House campaigns (Sodomite Infiltration)

Dan Innis' husband persuaded him to run for the U.S. House.
It didn't matter that Innis, a former business school dean, faced an aggressive Democratic incumbent, GOP colleagues who oppose his right to marry, and history no Republican ever has been openly gay when first elected to Congress.
"He said, 'You've got to do this,'" recalls Innis, running in the 1st Congressional District, which covers most of eastern New Hampshire. "He said, 'You need to take this opportunity and see if you can make a difference.'"
Innis plays down his sexuality as a campaign issue, but acknowledges the historic undertones. He is among three openly gay Republicans nationwide expected to run in this year's midterm elections. None has an easy path to Washington.
Each ultimately must unseat a Democratic incumbent, overcome brushes with hate and confront passionate divisions within the GOP about the way they live their lives. The Republican Party is trying to soften its tone on divisive social issues, but many religious conservatives see homosexuality as immoral.
Innis is married to a man, as is former state Sen. Richard Tisei, R-Mass., who is expected to run again for the northeastern Massachusetts congressional seat he narrowly lost in 2012 to Democratic Rep. John Tierney.
In San Diego, former Republican city councilman Carl DeMaio is challenging first-term Democratic Rep. Scott Peters.

There is NO WAY I will ever vote for a gay as someone who would represent ME. NO WAY!
I call these sellouts GOPes or Gopes.
Rhymes with dopes and mopes.

Like, take another one for the team...
Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities near them, which like them committed sexual sins and pursued homosexual activities, serve as an example of the punishment of eternal fire.
Oh, stop it - he can marry any adult women he wants to.
He cannot, however, marry inanimate objects, animals, vegetables, children, or adults that have the same "equipment" that he does.

Homosexual Indoctrination How Safety is Used to Promote Homosexuality in Schools
He doesn’t have a husband. He can’t. He’s a man (at least biologically).
Not as high as the odds against them of getting into Heaven... unless they repent and change... but then they don’t believe in HIM... but they will... ALL of them. Especially the ones that do not repent and ask for forgiveness.
If a Republican is homosexual, he lives his life quietly and does not announce the fact. If a Democrat (socialist, progressive, communist, Marxist) is homosexual, he demands legislated acceptance as he shoves it in our faces.
HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.
Safety: teach kids to avoid the house down the block with the rainbow flag flying.
The term “homosexual republican” should be an oxymoron.
Still though the American people have essentially endorsed organizized gaydom in all its forms. It probably began when Governor Ronald W. Reagan defended the “right” of homosexuals to teach in public schools, the camel’s nose under the tent”, as it is often said.
You may not, but your neighbors will.
log-crammin’ republicans....they have been around for a while....
they really need to join the other party....
the point of this AP story is to normalize homosexual based marriage.
ie HE has a husband rather than a normal wife.
all are running in dead end races where there is simply too much demcrate fraud. They are running as democrat “lite”.
That's as far as I got before nausea overcame me.
Garriage has arrived.
This is to try and take it mainstream.
