RNC Passes Unanimous Resolution Affirming GOP Is Still Against Gay Marriage

Well, it's official. The GOP platform continues to refuse to acknowledge gay people as equals or humans for that matter. I honestly don't understand a party that wants to exclude ANY citizens of the U.S.   The article below appeared in the Huffington Post last week and just goes to show that the GOP is out of touch and are truly bigoted. New polls indicate 63% of  Americans support gay marriage, but the GOP still stands against it firmly... AND they're nasty about it. One idiot likened gay people to those "dying of alcoholism" and called them "filthy."I'm so tired of this old, outdated, hate-filled, love-only-the rich, preach Jesus-and-act-the-opposite- party.  Sure, so it's okay for GOP people like the former SC governor to Commit Adultery and use 74K of the state's money (steal) to see his mistress in South America, but gay marriage is a heinous thing?  I don't think so. That hypocritical thief is NOW the front runner for a U.S. House seat!!  Can you believe it?  If anyone says this man is a "Christian" or say they are "Christians" and vote for the face of adultery, thievery, coveting, etc. - they're hypocrites.  (article: http://news.yahoo.com/scs-ex-gov-sanford-clears-hurdle-comeback-bid-023619843--election.html)

IN THE NEWS: RNC Passes Unanimous Resolution Affirming GOP Is Still Against Gay Marriage  (No surprise here)

RNC committee members gathered at their annual spring conference in Los Angeles voted unanimously on Friday to approve a number of resolutions, including one to reaffirm that the GOP still opposes gay marriage, Time's Zeke J. Miller reported.
"[T]he Republican National Committee affirms its support for marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and as the optimum environment in which to raise healthy children for the future of America; and be it further resolved, the Republican National Committee implores the U. S. Supreme Court to uphold the sanctity of marriage in its rulings on California’s Proposition 8 and the Federal Defense of Marriage Act," the resolution, first obtained by Chris Moody of Yahoo News, read.
Miller reports that the resolution was submitted by RNC committeeman Dave Agema, a Michigan Republican who has drawn criticism for calling gays and lesbians "filthy" and comparing them to people who were "dying of alcoholism."
While such an anti-gay plank already existed in the party's official platform, confirmed last summer at the Republican National Convention, the latest vote comes after a week of public consternation among social conservatives concerned that the party's aversion to marriage equality was beginning to wither in the name of expanding its outreach.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
