The following comes from a March 1 SF Gate article by Carla Marinucci.
After 15 years of struggle to be allowed into the California Republican Party’s “big tent,” the LGBT group known as the Log Cabin Republicans on Sunday won its battle to be chartered as an official volunteer party organization.
Republican delegates at the party’s statewide convention Sunday in Sacramento voted overwhelmingly — by a 861-to-293 vote — to back the charter of the 240-member California organization of gay and lesbian Republicans as an official party volunteer organization.
State party chair Jim Brulte brushed aside a request for a secret ballot, saying that at state GOP gatherings, “people stand and are held accountable” for their views.
Incoming Log Cabin chair John Musella called granting of the charter a defining moment, arguing that it would “strengthen the Republican Party” in a state where the party holds no statewide offices and lags behind Democrats in voter registration.
Celeste Greig, a longtime GOP conservative activist, also called the Log Cabin efforts to be chartered “a real travesty.”
“They are promoting a lifestyle, which is against our bylaws,” said Greig, who insisted that party rules mandate that “no group should be chartered if you have a personal agenda.”
And Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resource Institute, said the group’s charter would mean the party’s platform would be “watered down in terms of family values.”
The GOP now has an official LGBT group in the big tent. How inclusive. Will the GOP also have a pro-abortion group? How about a sodomy marriage group? Why not have a group that pushes for assisted suicide? They need to be progressive. Why not just change the name of the GOP to Democrat Party II? Is there any difference between the two parties?
What a crock. How they mock Abraham Lincoln. Next they’ll be trying to convince the naïve that Lincoln was one of them. They should be named as the Outhouse Republicans, in fact that is what I will refer to them from now on. They deserve no better. I can no longer respect nor continue my membership in the Grand Old Republican Party. They have lost all sense of morality, rhyme, and reason. Good by. May God have mercy on the RINO’s for choosing to make the Outhouse Republicans happy at the expense of the homosexuals making God unhappy. We can’t change God’s laws as we are just dust, and to dust we shall return. Sound familiar?
RINO$ 4 Sale – Inquiries should be sent care of the Log Packin Republican Gaystapo recruiters.
Be sue to include a ‘selfie’ of the candidate rolling on their back in shame (on behalf of all the Un-Good) for being born a brutish raping Hetero-Pig patriarchal oppressor, and a Demicrat Party membership card.
Anybody Remember Suzi Kennedy – Militant Psychodyke Chief of Staff to recalled governor ‘gay davis’ – who later took over the keys (and files) of the CA Republican Party – as part of the deal to keep the allegedly ‘secret’ Extra Son of ‘Der Arnold’ quiet…
At least the Terminator waited until the Day After he left office, when even Maria ‘skeleton’ shriver cast off the ‘good kennedy’ wifey role and confronted him about what was common knowledge – at least to the Gaystapo Press Corps an other insiders – but not the clueless Vanilla (voting taxpayers) who still though him a populist…
But the media knew better than to expose this ‘happy friendly’ hollyweird lowlife who threw both marriage and the voters under Der Bus – to keep his screen image untarnished, at least officially.
And Reward the Blackmailers – who made sure that Disgraced former Senator Carole ‘$5 Smidgen’ Migden landed in a big vat of tax pork.
When you stand for nothing, you fall for everything. The Bible says, PUT NOT YOUR TRUST IN PRINCES, IN MAN IN WHOM THERE IS NO SALVATION. Without God and morality, we shall fall. The trouble with modern Republicans is that they want to be loved and respected by all, and therefore they have lost their moral principles. By the latest caving in to the dictates of the emperor Obama, the GOP has shown that they cannot be trusted. The Tea Party and the Libertarian Party seem to be there only ones who are willing to fight the immoral and godless liberal Democrats. Nero is fiddling away while the Church and the world is burning. History is repeating itself.
I agree with the post of Fr. Karl. Our country has fallen, like the Roman Empire in its final days! America is in the jaws of the Devi! Without moral decency– a Nation cannot stand! And without God– all is lost! The very heart of all Christian civilization, is the Traditional Marriage (of one man and one woman) and the sanctity of a loving, morally-good home and family, that loves and worships God, and abides by Christ’s teachings! And God cannot help us much– if we do not love and honor Him, and abide by Christ’s teachings!
This is a deal with Satan. The GOP was strong in CA and could be again. It is called courage and fortitude; something that the CA-GOP lacks.
So what if the GOP wins something here and there. There should be a difference with the Republicans, not just Democrat-Lite.
Time for a new party.
A Real Low at the CRP Convention
In a disturbing turn of events the CRP ignored its own by-laws by moving to recognize and charter the Log Cabin Republicans. Although the Chairman claimed he simply followed the by-laws by turning over the application to the Volunteer Committee. He chose to overlook the elephant in the room by violating another section of the by-laws as noted below:
C “ARTICLE III Miscellaneous
Section 3.01 CHARTERING, SUSPENSION AND REVOCATION OF
(A) The Committee will consider for issuance of a charter, and recognition of delegate
positions and appointment rights under these bylaws, any organization whose
primary purpose is supporting and promoting the Republican principles and
platforms, and will not consider organizations based on special agendas, such as
Republicans motivated by profit, Republicans for certain life-style preferences or
orientations, Republicans for any personal agenda.”
Laughably the Chairman also claimed that the Log Cabin group had changed their by-laws and they did not advocate for a certain life-style. I really wondered if that is the case then what is the purpose of their group? This did not even begin to address the other violation since the Log Cabin group intensely opposes the party platform regarding marriage.
I was there for the vote. I was one of the 293 who voted against their inclusion. We were clearly outnumbered. A delegate in favor of their inclusion and a member of the Log Cabin Republicans stated that they have no intention of changing the party’s platform regarding marriage between a man and a woman. I don’t believe him for one second. Soon there will be no party that represents Christians and we will have nowhere to go. The only way POLITICALLY is a third party or for conservatives to take over the Republican party.
and what would you call the Tea Party?
The Tea Party is not a political party. It is a loosely organized group of people who believe in limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets. A majority within the Tea Party are also social conservatives. At the California GOP convention there were some Tea Party people, but as you can see by the vote we were outnumbered.
Well, the Tea party is a movement within the GOP to pull it to the right, and you can see how it is destroying it from within. If you are advocating something even more conservative, more white, more older, and more out of touch, you truly will destroy the GOP. But if that is your goal, go for it.
You obviously know nothing about the Tea Party. The members are not all Republicans, in fact many want nothing to do with the party. As for being white, I know several who are NOT white – African American, Hispanic in fact. So until you actually speak in person with someone in the movement you will continue be misinformed.
Thanks to Cardinal’s Bernardin, Mahony, Weakland, Abp Cupich, and others – the Democrats think they are a shoe in for the Catholic Votes no matter what they do.
If the Republicans believe that supporting the same MORTAL SINS as supported by the Democratic Party is the only way to get into office –
many of them may start supporting Mortal Sin as well.
The Catholic VOTERS are a significant part of the problem/equation.
Time, also, to reach out to a real man and bishop, Abp. Cordileone.
He is certainly someone that demands that the Faith be taught and observed. His counsel to Catholic voters could be important.
All CA bishops need to speak from the Catechism, and not from some Zombie-Liberal tract or principle, like the dopey “Seamless Garment,” so that people can have a clear sense of their moral options while voting.
Catholics elected Obama, and enabled giving hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, and the growing political support of homosexual marriage. Time for Catholic voters to act like Catholics. No true and valid Catholic may vote for a Democratic Party candidate. This is the message. Remember, we are dealing with Satan here, with abortion, and sodomite rights. As Prime Minister Netanyahu very recently said, “The enemy of your enemy, . . . is your enemy”.
I guess they’re getting desperate for members.
Because of the public sins of most (but not all) Bishops of CA over the past 30 years
– who have been involved in aiding and abetting child abusing priests,
or being involved in Democratic politics,
or refusing to teach the Faith according to the Bible and CCC,
California truly has become the land of nuts and fruits.
The teachers (Bishops) have refused to accurately teach the Faith.
They are too busy with their political goals and political affiliations.
Not all homosexuals are for gay marriage, The GOP is not a religious organization. It should be an organization that conserves the liberties and rights of the citizens with most control being at the local level. The Log Cabin Republicans are the least of our problems. CINOs are much more of a danger, not only are they anti life, but they hide in the untruths of the seamless garment.
lisag, those with same sex attraction (SSA) and are trying to lead a moral life,
and definitely do not support same sex marriage or any other form or promotion of sodomy will be rewarded by God for not giving in to temptation.
As we know fornication as well as homosexual acts are mortal sins.
Unmarrieds are a significant portion of the population, so being celibate is not limited to a small population of those with SSA.
Hopefully we will all be in heaven together.
It’s naive to thing Log Cabin Republicans would be anti-same sex marriage. They’re an openly gay group.
Voila: They support it (The California Chapter, at least)
Strangest phenomenon ever, though. Why on earth they would want to belong to a party that has been so hostile and often hateful to them. It’s like a black KKK chapter.
The Republican Party is never going to win another Senate/Governor race in California running on social conservatism. This probably helps the party focus its only possible selling point; convincing people that policies designed to benefit the ultra rich are in their interest, by projecting a fantasy of notion of social mobility.
