Republicans Confident Gay Rights Issue Will Hurt DeanRichard White (search), a Republican state senator from Mississippi, said any candidate talking about gay rights might as well not even visit his state.
"The people down here, they are not going to put up with that kind of stuff," White said. "We're not prepared for all that in Mississippi or anywhere else in the southern states."

... Let the Democrats continue to be the party of sexual deviance and let us exploit that identification to woo away their healthy families to the higher Republican standard ...Apparently we have a few mullahs of our own.
Oh, great.... a purge. Feh.
I'd be unwelcome in the Dems, because I support low taxes and the 2nd Amendment, as well as opposing partial birth abortion. I'd be unwelcome in the Libertarian Party, because I supported the war in Iraq and an active foreign and defense policy. Now, I'd be unwelcome in the GOP, because I oppose anti-sodomy laws and support legal recognition of gay marriage. I don't want to be an independent, as I can't vote in primaries.
Nope. I ain't leaving the GOP. I have nowhere else to go. And the fact that I doubt that this ideological purging is too likely to come off means that, if this isn't my political home, it's the closest I have right now.
I am not a single issue voter, but if I was the GOP becoming the other "Gay Other Party" would be the one to cause me to sit out voting for their candidates. I left the "party" 5 years ago for their lack of principled leadership. Throw in a lack of moral leadership as expressed by their candidates and I will cease even supporting their candidates as the only viable alternative.
Given no viable alternatives I will become yet another disenfranchised American. Our Republic and its future is of great concern to me, but not to the point that I will totally ignore my moral compass.
The GOP had better learn that it may ignore it's conservative base but is history if it craps on it's traditionally valued base.
In a nutshell: Limp-wristed leadership.
If this guy is claiming we need leaders who support police barging into people's bedrooms to arrest adults for consentual acts of homosexuality or adultery.....then he must want the Republican party voted out of power. Because that is exactly what will happen.
Furthermore, that is what the Santorum controversy is really about...something the author just doesn't seem to get.
What else is new..?
I am beginning to think all they do well is international trade, tax cuts and amnesty for illegals.
|if homosexuality is not immutable, then logically it must be acquired (children being the most likely to acquire the condition because of their vulnerability to social conditioning), and 4) society must err on the side of caution, actively discouraging the normalization of homosexuality in order to protect children and others from the possibility of acquiring a homosexual condition with its attendant health risks.
Let's be careful what we wish for here. This might not be such a smart thing to advocate.
The homosexual advocates share an office with the female supremacy police, who make the same argument concerning the immutability of maleness, which they consider a social conditioning problem that needs fixing.
As we all know, these people now control the education system from kindergarten through college. We don't just see fisting classes in elementary school, we see every kind of social conditioning measure imaginable being used to twist boys into being girls; to make boys ashamed of being male; and when all else fails, to make sure the unbendable ones don't learn anything so they can't get very far when they grow up. These measures range from cancelling recess so boys can't blow off their energy, through drugging the little miscreants if they won't sit still and behave properly, which is to say, like girls.
When that bunch finishes with them, the rest of them come in to explain the joys of, umm, alternate forms of eroticism.
The idea that sexual orientation can be controlled via conditioning is exactly the same argument that the most whacked-out feminists make that "sex" may be immutable but "gender" is a social construct. And it's one that Anointed Smart People who know best can and should alter, so as to Make Everything Better.
I think that accepting the premises and strategies of liberal social engineers is ultimately a form of defeat. It amounts to trying to build the New Conservative Man instead of the New Communist Man. The truth is, all efforts by Anointed Smart People to improve the human race go nowhere, as the Soviet Union demonstrated by failing to produce the New Communist Man after three generations of trying.
All we really need to do here is get rid of the social engineers who are already in place. We do not need to put our own in their stead.
