All gay Republicans are not the same
So there’s some sanity amongst gay Republicans after all. After GOProud named Ann Coulter a gay icon and some honorary something or other, the other and older gay Republican group, Log Cabin Republicans, could not refrain. From Clarke Cooper, LCR’s director:
Ann Coulter is not a serious part of the conservative movement — her positions are a throwback and do more harm than anything else. Her remarks endorsing the widely outdated and profoundly harmful idea of ‘reparative therapy,’ alleging that one can ‘pray the gay away,’ are not only demeaning to gays and lesbians, but are offensive to all people of faith. While her position on this matter is off base, it is exacerbated by her claim that the armed forces should bring back ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ a failed policy which impedes military readiness. Servicemembers who put their lives on the line deserve respect, not such clownish behavior.
