One of America's most anti-gay orgs praises TX GOP for committing to 'cure' gay people

by Jeremy Hooper

It's truly bizarro-nutso-crazypants that this is in a party platform in this, a time of such sweeping progress and public support. The political talk for the past few years has been all about the ability to turn Texas purple, if not full-on blue. If the Republicans are trying to to tempt those fates, this is a great step.

Though I'll have to say, that's a very fitting headline you've got there, FRC. By adopting such shocking language and terrorizing tacts, the Texas Republican party is, in fact, walking an ever-shortening plank. Those of us who understand demographics and trend lines get that. I'm just surprised you all are so quick to admit the obvious about this ill-advised journey toward political irrelevancy.
