Fischer's GOP: The party of 'nope'

by Jeremy Hooper

Values Voter Summit star speaker Bryan Fischer is building on the words of GOProud's star speaker Ann Coulter, taking the latter's latest column about Reagan being "her guy" and using it to say that the GOP should head in a direction that bans any and everything having to do with the gay:

If we apply Reagan’s determined counsel to critical contemporary issues, complete clarity emerges regarding the position that Reagan Republicans ought to take:

- Homosexuals in the military: Nope. Allowing open homosexuals to serve in the military - and running people out of the military who don’t approve - is an extremely powerful “government endorsement of homosexuality.”

- Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA): Nope. Giving homosexuals special privileges and protections in the workplace, based exclusively on the kind of aberrant sex in which they indulge, is a powerful “government endorsement of homosexuality.”

- Same-sex marriage: Nope. For the government to declare that couplings based on deviant sexual expression are the moral and legal equivalent of heterosexual marriage is a powerful “government endorsement of homosexuality.”

- Hate crimes laws: Nope. Giving greater legal protections to certain victims of crime just because they practice unusual and unacceptable sexual behaviors is a powerful “government endorsement of homosexuality.” Plus, this violates the classic American standard of full equality under the law. Under hate crimes laws, practitioners of unnatural sexual conduct are more equal than people who are sexually normal.

Reagan shows the way: no “government endorsement of homosexuality” [AFA]

There's no hope in "nope."
