Republicans and gays

This morning while listening to NPR, I started thinking about how much Republicans have been so intolerant of gays. Was it only because of the religious? So many more young people voted this year. It's youth that is far more tolerant of gays (certainly not 100%). I also applaud the many Republicans who are gay and participate actively with their party despite having the door slammed in their face by their own people over and over again.

I think it's possible the Republicans will never regain control of our government until they learn to accept gays as normal people. I think things would be different today if this were not an issue. I would love it they changed their position and then watch the religious freaks self-implode.

Joe -

I hope for the same, but I'm afraid that the message sent by the passing of the laws in CA and AZ will keep that from happening.

Although there was a clear call for change and move toward democrat ideals, the message that this might include gays is, I'm afraid, still lost.

I hope I'm wrong.
