GOP seeks ‘big tent’ but who props it up?

By Charlie Butts (OneNewsNow.com), September 28, 2016 |

With just weeks to go before Election Day, a pro-family advocate is questioning the Republican Party’s affiliation with a homosexual group.

Newt Gingrich is set to speak tonight, September 28, at a fundraiser for the Log Cabin Republicans. The pro-homosexual group is meeting in Washington, D.C., where the keynote speaker is the former Speaker of the House.

Peter LaBarbera, who heads Americans for Truth, recalls that Log Cabin president Gregory Angelo publicly expressed anger this summer over the socially conservative platform approved by the Republican Party.

In a July press release, Angelo complained that the GOP “passed the most anti-LGBT platform in the party’s 162-year history,” citing “opposition to marriage equality” and “nonsense about bathrooms.”

LaBarbera says it’s a fair question why Gingrich is helping an organization raise money that’s attacking the Republican Party’s conservative beliefs.

“I think this is the fallacy of the big tent,” says LaBarbera. “The Log Cabin Republicans are homosexual activists first, Republican second.”

The more the GOP reaches out to homosexual Republicans, he warns, “the more they alienate their massive Christian, conservative, grassroots base.”

LaBarbera says the Log Cabin Republicans report [in 2008] only 20,000 members nationwide, meaning Gingrich and others risk offending millions of conservative Americans [for a tiny amount of votes].

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is scheduled to speak at the annual fundraising dinner for the Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) this Wednesday, September 28. LCR has a long history of promoting homosexualism in the GOP and opposing most of the pro-family planks on “gay” issues that Gingrich supports.

LCR supports homosexual “marriage” and strongly opposes a federal constitutional amendment preserving marriage as between a man and a woman. On July 12, just after the GOP Platform Committee passed a conservative, pro-family platform, LCR president Gregory Angelo sent out a press release/money pitch blasting the Committee:

“There’s no way to sugar-coat this: I’m mad as hell — and I know you are, too.

“Moments ago, the Republican Party passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party’s 162-year history.

“Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of “pray the gay away” — it’s all in there.”

I will translate Angelo’s “gay”-activist-speak: he’s furious that the GOP:

  1. opposes homosexuality-based “marriage”;
  2. opposes men who live as “women” using public women’s restrooms inhabited by ladies and girls (note that many cross-dressing men, like this Idaho “transgender” miscreant voyeur with a video camera, still say they are sexually attracted to females); and
  3. opposes laws banning sex-confused minors (including victims of child sexual abuse) from seeking pro-heterosexual-change therapy. (Note Angelo’s “pray away the gay” mockery of Christians who seek God’s help in overcoming the sinful pull of homosexuality; I assume here that most Republicans still support the notion that God answers prayers and helps people overcome besetting sins.)

Surely, Newt Gingrich agrees with those three GOP Platform points that made Angelo “mad as hell”–yet Gingrich is lending his conservative name to Angelo’s socially-left LGBT Republican organization that mocks Bible-believing Christians. Why?
