The new GOP name and mission statement


UPDATE: Check out the new page on the site: The Gay Objectors’ Party (GOP), for more anti-gay prejudice in GOP party platforms

Eureka!

Ya’ll have already seen me use the new name for the “Grand Ole’ Party (GOP)”…. it is the Gay Objectors’ Party (GOP).

Here is their new mission statement:

The Gay Objectors’ Party (GOP) strives to tell people who they are, what they can do, when they can do it, how they can do it, what they can and can’t believe, who they can and can’t love, who they can and can’t live with, where they can and can’t work.

Furthermore the GOP promises to take away people’s children, destroy families, keep families from forming and to be the perpetuators of prejudice, ignorance, hate and discrimination in the United States of America.

If you are confused as to why I feel this way then you just need to see an example of some of the Gay Objectors’ Party’s prejudice. Check out a previous post and see what is in the Texas GOP Platform).

Umm… For the record (as I have said in past posts)… There are plenty of people who are fair-minded and inclusive and yes even lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender who are also members of the Republican Party.

My assessment of the Party is based solely on the Party’s actions and its official stances as found in their Party Platforms. It’s in ya’ll’s platforms, so I guess you can’t be ashamed of it or back down from it, right?

If you are one of the above-described, fair-minded, inclusive or LGBT folks in the GOP… You’d better step up and start doing something. Being quiet and doing nothing about injustice is just as bad as being the perpetrator yourself.

Kudos to folks like Fecund Stench, the Log Cabin Republicans, Ed Farthing, my good friends Leehe, Ryan, Melissa, Natasha, Chris, both Lauras and so on and so on (there are way too many to list), who have already started doing something to actually make that little “all men are created equal” thing something real instead of just empty, soul-less lip-service.

    Don’t thank me, I was cheering today as the votes came in on H.J.Res 88… something about “writing discrimination into our constitution” (did you like that Pelosi-esque catch phrase?).

    But alas… we couldn’t get 2/3, once again. Oh well, there’s always next year.

    Ryan… have seen the Texas GOP platform? Surely you can’t support even any where near what is said in there (maybe except for the marriage issue – I know you and I disagree on that one)?

  3. Rudicus says:

    I know there is already some backlash in the Christian community from moderates who are tired of the uber conservative evangelicals speaking for them. I imagine the same is happening in the GOP, but the big problem is that they’ve done such a good job of wrapping every issue with the Bible, that a vote or a stance against the GOP is really a vote against God, and that’s how they’ll frame it, so it makes it tough to speak against it and make any headweay.

    Look at the Log Cabin Republicans – here they speak out against an obviously homophibic Dick Roeding and he dismisses them and calls them a “bunch of queers”

    I still say the best solution would be for moderates on both sides to jump ship and form a centrist party – they could dominate. After all, extremeism looks pretty silly when it’s standing by itself.

  4. Ryan says:

    Why would anyone jump to a third party because they disagree on one issue? Yeah, way to throw away your vote.

    But I agree, the bible-thumping Republicans are giving the rest of us a bad name.

  5. Matt says:

    I agree with you Ryan. Third parties are useless. That is why I stick with the Democrats. Yeah, they are cowards and sometimes they stick gays in the back, but they are the best bet gay people have (in my opinion).

  6. Natasha Sell says:

    Kudos Rudicus!! you know, my dad actually called me a liberal the other day because we got into an argument about homosexuals, and he’s one of those bible thumping uber-conservatives. That’s when I realized that my moderate conservative beliefs aren’t even welcome by some in my own party. I tried to explain to him “hate the sin, not the sinner”, but that wasn’t good enough.
