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

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council, an organization that has never hidden its belief that the only good gay person is a "converted" gay person, is now praising the Lone State State's Republican party for rejecting both credible science and citizen welfare:

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.
