VA Congressman reportedly asked colleagues not to support gay candidates

When does the hatred and intolerance end? 
A Republican Congressman asked people to NOT support gay Republican candidates - That's not the way to include everyone and change the hateful face of the GOP.  UGH. I am so tired of this. Can't this outdated political party just accept everyone? What the hell is so hard about considering everyone equal? -

From Politico (a non-partisan political reporting source) :
Congressman reportedly asked colleagues not to support gay candidates

Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., repeatedly urged the National Republican Congressional Committee and fellow Republicans not to offer financial backing to some of the party's gay congressional candidates, according to sources familiar with the matter. Two gay Republicans -- Richard Tisei and Carl DeMaio -- are taking on Democratic incumbents in next year's House races. House Speaker John Boehner distanced himself from the report on Thursday, telling reporters he supports the Republican Party's efforts to support LGBT candidates for Congress.

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.
