Texas Republican Party Platform

How can the Texas Republican party be the party of the future when they continue to include anti-gay language in their platform?

From Newsweek: "This past weekend, the Texas Republican Party (“Fight to Keep Texas Red”) adopted a party platform for 2014 that includes support of so-called “reparative therapy,” a psychological approach that claims to be able to change the sexual orientation of adults, from gay to straight. Reparative therapy is a long-held cornerstone of the religious right, and the Texas GOP’s inclusion of the therapy in its platform could be an indication that Tea Party and religious right’s pull in the Lone Star State."

Texas Republicans are best when they focus on inclusion, focus on solutions, and focus on creating a more efficient government, but Texas Republican are at their worst when they champion an anti-gay agenda.  

Why?  How will including anti-gay language in the party platform help Texas Republicans solve problems?


  1. Unbelievable. They're sooooo out of step...what's it going to take?

  2. Texas Monthly said that if the Republicans continued on this path that they would be destroying the party themselves. (or something like that.) :)
