RNC chair actively works to destroy GOP youth, gay, moderate vote

by Jeremy Hooper

Dear LGBT Republicans: Your Chairman just called for a Federal Marriage Amendment:

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus: "Because our children's future is best preserved within the traditional understanding of marriage, we call for a constitutional amendment that fully protects marriage as a union of a man and a woman, so that judges cannot make other arrangements equivalent to it."

Ya know, because why shouldn't a publicly unsupported measure that failed multiple times during the hottest heat of the Bush years guide the GOP of 2012? After all, scientists are getting closer to reversing the aging process—right?

Pagebreak-47

Note to anyone trying to find clarity in Mitt Romney's marriage stance: You don't have to look any further than the National Organization For Marriage's truly chilling marriage pledge. It's impossible to go further or more extreme (with that pledge even calling on a presidential commission to "investigate" supposed slights against the NOM crowd). Mitt Romney proudly signed it.

Defense, LGBT supporters? And no, "the party has to appease social conservatives" is not an okay defense. Because no you don't. Not when it comes to human worth, dignity, and the refusal to accept the same!
