The Texas GOP Wants To Punish Straight People Who Support Gay Rights?

Now this interesting,

It seems that the GOP in Texas with the release of their campaign platform has dedicated a chapter on Gay rights?

But don't think for a minute that is flattering at all, they are asking for stern laws again gay rights and those that support them

Wait a minute is this really happening here in America in with one of our own elite parties? after all we only have two, dumb and dumber to chose from.


It might not be as hotly anticipated as one of the Twilight novels, but the Texas Republican Party has released its 2010 party platform. And the gays have at least the equivalent of a chapter dedicated to them.

But consider this work of literature a tragedy. That's because the 2010 GOP platform in Texas literally supports laws that criminalize sodomy, and also suggests that straight people who support same-sex marriage should be penalized with jail time.

Texas, Uganda. Uganda, Texas. I think you two will really hit it off.


I guess if you want to gain the scorn of a voting section in the nation you just should target them because is plenty of other "groups" that will yield better support, we know that GOP loves the "religious rights"


And is more to the issue,


For instance, the official GOP line in Texas, when it comes to sodomy is striking: gay people should be arrested for having any sort of sexual contact with someone of the same-sex inside their own bedrooms. That's my paraphrase, but trust the direct quote.

"We oppose the legalization of sodomy. We demand that Congress exercise its authority granted by the U.S. constitution to withhold jurisdiction from the federal courts from cases involving sodomy," the GOP platform reads. Meaning that even though the U.S. Supreme Court overturned sodomy laws last decade (ironically in a case that stemmed from Texas), Texas Republicans would like the state to have the power to criminalize LGBT folks for having sex.


This people needs to be send to the middle ages where they belong

"We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases," the platform reads.

I get the feeling that Texas Republicans are desperate now.
Rick Perry's only shot to stay around is to bring in the more extreme groups (seccesionists, Tea Partiers, gay haters) to get more votes. It seems like Texas is slowly becoming more accepting in general, at least in my experience.

Tea parties don't hate gays.

Republicans hate gays.

Perry is right to support secession from the criminal federal government. Of course, he doesn't really support secession since he is a globalist banker scum bag that works with Cintra and has done nothing to stop the illegals. Everything Perry says is hot air in that regard, nothing more than a show.

Allow me to speak for a moment on the issue of "gay rights".

Gays have no more rights than I do.

The only reason we hear the term "gay rights" is because government is run by criminals that have totally ignored their constitutional limitations.

The first amendment is clear, congress shall make no law recognizing a religious establishment.

Marriage is a religious establishment.

Marriage is something that should take place in a church, it has no business taking place in a court house. Our criminal government has decided to give special privileges to married people and has totally ignored the first amendment on all fronts.

Thus, the need for "gay rights" was born. Because our criminal government feels it can dictate what the religious institution of marriage should be and grant special privileges based on this institution, we now have a situation where gays and single people are second class citizens.

The gays look to government as a solution to their problem. This is ridiculous. You'd think they would have learned by now that the proper course of action is to demand government get out of the marriage business entirely. However that is not what we hear from the "Gay rights" camp.

They want more government, more special privileges, more "rights" - which aren't really rights at all.

Government can not solve problems, it can only create them.

It doesn't stop to amazed me that with all the problems facing this nation, including the disastrous wars in the middle east (thanks to the GOP)the only thing they have to offer is attacking gays and also straight voters.

Incredible, they are nothing but morons.

I've attended numerous tea parties.

I am not a republican.

Therefore your assertion is wrong.

The tea party stance on gay marriage:

Yes you are right to a point but remember that the concept of religious matrimonial ceremonies are base on religious believes, before that people just got together to father and birth children.

Nothing more and nothing else concept of Church's wedding is pretty new.

And as for gay rights yes you may be right also, but whatever this morons are advocating will affect heterosexual people also.

If you ever plan on voting for a "tea party" candidate...you will be voting republican.

Doesn't matter if you call yourself "republican" or not...the whole tea party movement was a Republican construct.


ETA: Not sure if you have noticed...but Ron Paul is a Republican.

Tea Partiers reject both the democrats and republicans but are not attracted to the Libertarians (mostly because they've dropped the ball for at least two decades now). It would be better to say that Tea Partiers tend to be right-leaning.

We are talking about Texas, a state that is SEVERELY behind and backwards in every regards.

Texas -- a legend ONLY in the minds of its own citizens.

The tea parties rose out of Ron Paul's candidacy, they were not constructed by the republican party.

Sure, you will probably be voting for a republican if you are voting for a tea party candidate.

This is because the republican and democratic parties have constructed the system in such a way as to make third party candidacies nearly impossible. It is far easier to co-opt an existing party than to start a new one.

Tea party candidates are not "republicans" as they reject the portions of the party platform that call for more intrusive government.

Tea party candidates are libertarian.

If you want to see what a tea party candidate supports, read the libertarian platform.

Most Tea Partiers don't even know who Ron Paul is...Sarah Palin is their leader.

You can keep lying to yourself...it doesn't matter to me...but all Tea Party candidates will be on the Repulican Party ticket and they will all be looking for the endorsement of Sarah Palin...not Ron Paul.

If you want to follow Sarah Palin...be my guest...just don't get mad when I am lauging at you.

Have you been to a tea party?

Have you interviewed people at these events?

My guess is you probably have not.

I have.

And I can tell you that you are wrong.

Your assumptions are misguided and based on mass media propaganda.

The "tea party express" is a republican machine that plays to republican neo-con sentiment, however that is not how the vast majority of tea parties go down.

The people at tea parties are anti-government, they want government out of their lives. They are not neo-cons. They are libertarians.

Well ask those 'libertarians' why they support Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security.

And a movement that can accept people like Sarah Palin as a de facto leader is not much of a small government libertarian movement that Ron Paul started. I guess they had to branch out and bring in the nut jobs like guys holding signs saying 'less government, more Jesus’ and others saying Obama is not born here or he is not legitimately our president.

Good people.

I used to support the tea parties until the time that they were infiltrated by the big insurance propaganda and completely deviated from the real issues behind the HCR.

The vast majority know the medicare/socialist security system is totally insolvent and the vast majority want the option to opt-out of those criminal ponzi schemes.

Am I supposed to be surprised by this? Texas even tried to change their science text books to prove that Evolution has holes in its theory. They don't need textbooks to prove that evolution is false just look at Rick Perry!


They do understand that imprisoning a person for supporting another person’s rights is considered political persecution and I thought we touted ourselves on freedom? I have a better idea, why don't we stone the homosexuals in the streets ya know, we can party like it's 150 B.C.
