Republican does what all GOP candidates will eventually do (i.e. accept gays); feels MassResistance's wrath (i.e. tsk-tsking blog post)
Anti-gay group MassResistance is coming out against Republican U.S Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez for showing up and campaigning at Boston's Gay Pride Festival:
It's interesting how these groups are starting to realize the future that's playing out before them. The stranglehold is slowly lessening and their awareness is setting in. While the GOP is still far from a pro-LGBT party, more and more candidates are looking to demography, the future, and some basic inevitabilities, moving them away from discriminatory "culture wars" and into places where pro-equality people congregate. Groups like MassResistance just don't know what to do with themselves!
So what are they doing? Well, since they won't support progressive Democrat Ed Markey either, these social conservatives are vowing to just leave their ballots blank in the upcoming special election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's vacated seat. They forfeit; the future wins.
