Texas Republicans HATE Gays

The examiner says, “Over the last 50 years, the Republican party has been stamped with the stigma of prejudice and racism.
While not all registered Republican voters and lawmakers have shown a
history of bigotry, they still have to defend those who have.

Out of all the states in the country, one of the most conservative is the Lone Star State of Texas.”

We affirm that the practice of
homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the
breakdown of the family unit. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the
fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God,
recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of
Texans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable
“alternative” lifestyle, in public policy, nor should “family” be
redefined to include homosexual “couples.” We believe there should be
no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status
for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin. Additionally,
we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose
homosexuality out of faith, conviction or belief in traditional values.
