I know that there are many, many people that feel that homosexualty is against God, the Bible, etc. The posted comments cement my statement. I do not feel that homosexuality is wrong. I am embarrassed to be a Republican with the comments that have been made on this thread. I know there is absolutely no way that I can ever change the opinions of the posters, as they will never change my opinion either. I feel it is necessary to give my support to gay Republicans. There are a lot of other straight Repubs that feel the same way as I do.
I will not get into a tit-for-tat arguement about why I hold these views, it will fall onto deaf ears. However, I do spell my arguements out to people I meet face to face. I take little steps to bring people to a different way of looking at this situation. I thank you for supporting the Republican party even though people seem to want to push you out. Hang in there! Flame suit on.
"There are a lot of other straight Repubs that feel the same way as I do."
Yup, I'm with you.
Incidentally, I also sincerely doubt the "Christian" credentials of many of the posters on here who seem to make a second living attacking homosexuals and fixating on demeaning them.
To me, that kind of denigration is UN-Christian, but I guess I must be just another godless infidel.

OK, now you're gonna get it. [Just kidding]. I think homo behavior is disgusting, but if some of them want to vote Republican (ostensibly for economic reasons), I don't want to dissuade them from doing so.

Well one has to ask oneself, is it worth that 3% of the vote to sell one's soul...
I have no delusions about the GOP being pure as the driven snow. I am also not under the delusion that every single homosexual is a pink-feather-boa-toting flamer out on the street corners in fishnet hose trying to seduce little boys every weekend. I am also libertarian enough to believe that it's none of the govt's durn business what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own domicile, and folks should do whatever floats their boat as long as they don't bother me or cost me money.
That being said: how can an honorable Republican justify an alliance with those vocal members of a group whose whole shtick derives from something as base and animal as what appendage goes in whose orifice?
Think about it-- defining yourself first and foremost by your sexuality. The gods meant higher things for us than that.
I am an American first, a scientist second, and unsolicited questions about my sexual orientation will be met with pugilism.

(Well I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation...)
