  1. The “Uncle Tom” self-haters of GOProud have arch bitch Ann Coulter on their board, someone who openly hates us (although she pings my gaydar something wicked…). Their opinion could not be less relevant and their attempt to re-write what happen just proves – as if it was necessary – that they are a bloody joke.

      She tells dreadful lies about gay people but does it in a charming rather than bitchy way. Maybe that’s why they like her.

    Give gingrich 1 point for honesty. Most honest comment since presidential candidate McGovern’s vice- said, “To hell with gay people!”
    These gay republicans would be farcical, if there weren’t so sad, in such self-denial and self-loathing. That they are willing to sit at the back of the bus, and accept having no rights … Pitiful creatures.

    1. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 2:43pm

      Your majesty is totally right.

  3. Commander Thor 22 Dec 2011, 11:07am

    Go vote for Obama. No wait, I want your vote afterall, you filthy second class citizen.

    1. Pretty much sums it up.:-\

    If people cut through the usual bile aimed against anyone described as right wing, they might feel that Newt was being honest, saying “if gay marriage is the most important thing you thnk about you are barking up the wrong tree with me and I will never support it, but if it isn’t and jobs….blah blah blah…are more important then I will do this,

    This and this”. This is a little refreshing, I think. In quite contrast to Mr Clegg and his crew saying “we will spend this, this and this” like a bunch of deranged footballer’s wives, then when they are in Government saying “oh, we’ve now looked at the books and it is cut, cut, cut” ; Mr Osborne saying “I have no plans to raise VAT” before the election, then the day after saying “Now I do!”

    Having read the whole acount (albeit relayed by the Republican spin machine) I say good on Newt, honest if nothing else. At the very least it makes the story a little less cut and dried.

    Anyone know what 4 + 8 is? I can’t work the weblink!

      The House Ethics Committee in Washington apparently disagrees with you as to his honesty.

    Why would anyone vote for the republican party in the USA, if they do win the election, expect that party to dismantle equality laws and follow Russia in banning Gay association. At least, Obama, whatever anybody says, is in agreement with Same-Sex Marriage Equality, but would not be able to get a majority vote. Today, is our 6th CP anniversary, although we have been together 31 yrs, we long for the day when we can enter Same-Sex Civil Marriage together.

    1. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 2:40pm

      Even the republicans can’t ban freedom of association in America.

  6. Watch: Gingrich Tells Gay Iowa Voters Gays Should Vote For Obama (Video):

    Personally, I like the fact that the bigotry of Gingrich and the rest of these Republican presidential hopefuls is so blatant. Simplifies things immensely!

  7. I’m trying to decide who is more worrying Gingrich (who at least admits that LGBT voters who value their human rights should vote for Obama) or GoProud (who seem to be prepared to forfeit their human rights) … close call

    1. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 2:38pm

      Does it matter? Obama will win by a landslide.

  8. GOProud and the other group, Log Cabin Republicans, are all rich fags who have nothing to lose when it comes to civil rights because they can afford the best lawyers money can buy. These KAPOS deserve neither the American electorate’s time or money. I watched the interview of Gingrich and the man was dead serious “…then vote for Obama…” is exactly what the man said, and I am going to take his advice.

    1. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 2:56pm

      Being rich has nothing to do with it. Being deluded does.

  9. Just when you think Republican candidates (and supporters) can’t get any dumber, they go and prove you wrong. The most important thing to ANYONE should be their own equality. I vote first and foremost for my equality.

    1. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 2:57pm

      Recent history has shown being dumb is a requirement for a puppet republican president.

  10. Mischaracterised him? How exactly? Is Newt FOR gay rights now? Nope. That’s what I thought.
    Then they’ve summarised him, not mischaracterised him. If they told us his other policies were other than stated, that would be mischaracterisation. Seems like the Log Cabin Republicans enjoy rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic.

  11. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 2:36pm

    The republicans may as well announce they are not putting up a candidate this time, they are all total losers obsessed with repressing homosexuality.

  12. Gay Republicans – now there’s a tragic sight.

    A sad group of rich white men who cannot get over the fact that their parents hate them for what they are. To try to curry favour with people who have nothing but contempt for them; they are willing to betray their own klnd.

    It’s all in vain though, as their parents still hate them.

    1. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 3:07pm

      Bizarre comment, do you have issues with your parents? Sounds like you are projecting.

    2. Happy to be CPd 22 Dec 2011, 3:10pm

      Don’t bother, it’s just Spanner.

    3. Pastor Rich N. Fat 22 Dec 2011, 3:12pm

      Agreed.

  13. Stuart Neyton 22 Dec 2011, 4:12pm

    I knew GOProud were just self-hating excusers of homophobia, but i always thought Log Cabins had a little more respect for themselves than to defend people with views like that.

    None of the candidates of either of the main two parties have good policies for the LGBT (especially T) communities. It’s not all about marriage either, discrimination affects LGBT people in so many other areas.

  14. The Christians pretend to be gay to get information about gays they can use it to destroy them and the “gay agenda”. These “gay republicans” sound fake, like some are just saying they are gay to get the gay vote for the Republicans, everybody knows they are anti gay everything and want a Christian take over of government where they control everything their way, that means no LGBT people. These days you need to do a check to find out who is for real and the best way to do that is kiss the guy or another way to find out if they are for real is If they don’t go down they are fake clowns.

    Everyone here is criticising this American politician but has Obama or the Democrats promised Federal gay marriage?

      1. de Villiers 23 Dec 2011, 8:26am

        That is interesting, thank you. A “wait and see” approach, pushed by a liberalising culture, is better than a hostile declaration.

  16. Quote:
    On the other hand, for those for whom it’s not the central issue in their life, that they care about job creation, they care about national security, that they care about a better future for the country at large, then I think I’ll get their support.”

    This actually confirms my suspicion that many right wingers really believe that gay people don’t have real realtionships that they care about, that we are quite happy to sacrificie the person whom we love most, to see them snubbed and humiliated (and possible deported) just so long as we can increase GDP by an extra half of a percentage point as well.

    Still, we all know from his past behaviour how much Newt really values marriage, so perhaps it is understandable that he should assume that we are all just as blase…

    But then again, luckily for me I’m not an American.

      Gene says,
      “These “gay republicans” sound fake, like some are just saying they are gay to get the gay vote for the Republicans, everybody knows they are anti gay everything and want a Christian take over of government where they control everything their way, that means no LGBT people.”
      I don’t know who these “gay republicans” are, but they definitely are not Christians in the true nature of Christianity. No true Christian wants to “control everything”, they want to point out the sinfulness and wickedness of mankind totally. Instead of “controlling” God wants to have everyone see how selfish everyone is because they do every kind of sin.
      Galatians 5:19-21 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

      So you and I are identical when ignoring God’s principles and following our own sinful behavior as we become our own god.

      1. de Villiers 23 Dec 2011, 8:29am

        The left also has sinful behaviour – it is just different issues to which it directs it’s censoriousness. Smoking, fast food, free speech replaced by excessive political correctness, boxing, holidays to Spain – all of these fall foul of the left’s form of sin.

  17. Always amazes me that out of such a large educated population people like this are considered to be serious candidates for the post of most powerful person on earth??
