Republicans Throw Their Gay Adorers Under the Bus...Again

   The Republican Party is in trouble and LGBT people will continue to be targeted as symbolic sufferers for it. As argued here in March, (“Why ‘God, Guns and Gays’ Is Still Working”), no matter how the country is going in a more accepting direction, the right-wing is going to use discrimination as long as it works to rile up the funders and voters that make up their base.
   It doesn’t conform to the Republican gay group’s, the Log Cabin Republicans,’ ongoing fantasies about the Party and its presidential nominee treating LGBT people as equal human beings. Instead it provides the Log Cabiners with what they value more - the comfort of continuing their economically privileged status.
   So these gay loyalists must watch as their beloved Party continually rejects them in front of the world.  Tellingly, in July it approved what even the Log Cabiners call “the most anti-LGBT platform in the Party’s 162-year history."
   In an email from Log Cabin President Gregory T. Angelo, he explained - as if shocked that Republicans would do this: “Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of “pray the gay away - it’s all in there.."

A Recent Comment:

"I see little discussion in the coast press that equals the thinking of Bob Minor ('Minor Details') including his, in this issue, saying that we must go beyond just calling bigots hypocrites - the religion itself has to be held accountable. He names names and is right: 'What we’re seeing is the heart of what right-wing religion itself really is, not merely hypocrisy.'"

Desmond M. Clarke: "Religious Belief, Fundamentalism, and Intolerance" (January 16, 2016)

"In many western democracies today, the defensive strategies of churches—to protect their members from ‘contamination’ by non-members—are limited to demands for separate schools, in which they can indoctrinate those who had been made members involuntarily soon after their birth. Peaceful non-engagement with other citizens has replaced civil war. Those who still endorse the logic of Aquinas and Calvin, however, are not restrained by the uncertainty of their convictions. For them, the Kalashnikov is the modern equivalent of burning at the stake. Technology changes; poor philosophy survives in the closed minds of religious fundamentalists."

Dr. Minor on Love, Dating, and Relationships
His Latest Column on 50
PlusPrime.comRelationship Collumn Logo

     What is the best balance of similarities and differences between two people that makes for happy relationships?
     The old saying that opposites attract might be true when it comes to the initial stages of a relationship. But as time wears on, it could very well be those opposites that start to bug the other partner.
     Those little quirks that were thought to be so cute can start to become irritating and get under ones nerves. And soon we’re out of touch with how we used to evaluate what we laughed about.
     It might be truer to say that we’re more likely to get along with someone exactly like us. But even if that’s the case, there just isn’t another human being with the same background, interests, and baggage that we’ll bring into any relationship....

NW PFLAG Leadership WorkshopThe Fairness Project On-Line Activist Tool Kit

The Fairness Project is in the process of making available the handout materials from Dr. Minor's popular workshop: "Being an Activist Without Being a Victim." These materials are chosen because they encourage activist leadership to proceed from a progressive, healing model which contradicts the models of leadership found in most popular forms, models that are meant to keep the system in place rather than to make changes that support humanity, and result in burnout among leaders.

To access the current materials in The Fairness Project Tool Kit for activist leaders, click here.
