    It seems that sometimes turkeys do vote for Christmas.

  2. This raging bigot not only supports a constitutional amendment banning equal marriage he also wants to make ALL abortions illegal in the US and allow employers to dictate what if any birth control their employees can use. He recently was quoted as say that visiting your partner in hospital was a benefit not a right. He does not believe that our LGBT community or the women in this country should have the same rights as the rest of the population. He does not give a shi@ about anyone other than rich white (straight) guys. This gay republican group must believe their social status will keep them and their money safe. A gay person voting for HIM is like a cockroach voting for RAID.

  3. Any LGBT group that approves, let alone promotes Romney, is either mentally retarded or being bought ! :-(

    1. Its totally about money. They value their bank accounts more than their human dignity.

      1. Can you show me where I can find that information?

  4. The mind boggles. These self-loathing pond scum are beneath contempt. I don’t begrudge anyone their politics – some people are right wing, ok – but supporting Romney, who is specifically waging war on us!? Sad sad sad. Uncle Tom comes to mind.

      I’m sure he’s promised them something in return for the endorsement. Unfortunately, just as with every else he’s said over the past year, he’ll change his mind the moment they’re out of the room. Romney and his campaign team will say anything to anyone in order to get elected. It’s impossible to know what he actually does stand for. He probably doesn’t even know himself. He’s not even a good capitalist, because any idiot can make a company’s temporary balance sheet look good by pretty much shutting it down and selling off its assets. Not exactly Steve Jobs or Warren Buffett is he?

      Americans would have to be idiots to vote this man in. Sadly it’s looking increasingly likely that they might do just that.

    How can they endorse him when he wants to deny equality to them in return? . . .

    1. I’ve always wondered if they are actually gay or not… Remember, Republicans, most of them, have a firm belief that we choose our sexuality.

  6. An example of how gay people really are like everyone else; in that being gay isn’t a cure against complete and utter idiocy.

  7. I imagine that they would all fit into ONE cabin as well!

    1. More likely one cottage

      1. One room of one little cottage…the bathroom perhaps

  8. Romney is GAY. I would put money on it.

    1. GingerlyColors 25 Oct 2012, 7:23am

      What about Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan? He’s pretty nice looking! Oppressed sexuality, perhaps?

      1. @GingerlyColours … you really DO need to go to Specsavers!!! ;-) ;-)

  9. Log Cabin Republicans really are an oxymoron aren’t they?

  10. The LCR are also known as the
    Uncle Tom Cabin Republicans.

    Thanksgiving comes early for Romney, and he won’t even spare his turkeys. So sad, these guys are blind to the stupidity of their actions.

  12. Idiotic quislings.

    And fat sweating impotent sacks of suet whose only joy left is stroking their money and shrugging about liberty and dignity (someone else will do all the hard work….)

  13. GingerlyColors 24 Oct 2012, 12:41pm

    Log Cabin Republicans my sound like turkeys voting for Christmas (or in the case of America, Thanksgiving) but sometimes I think a good way to influence the Republican Party is from within. The LCR did not endorse George W. Bush because like Mitt Romney, he also wanted to see a Constitutional Amendment opposing gay marriage but as anybody in the know about the US Constitution is aware, getting an Amendment is very difficult and out of 10000 proposals to amend the Constitution only 27 have been successful.
    Don’t forget George W. Bush was also opposed to the decriminalization of homosexuality in Texas, of which he was Governor of before the law was struck down by the Lawrence v. Texas ruling which also ended bans on same-sex relationships in other states. Today there is little call from the mainstream Republican Party for recriminalization of gay sex.

    Log Cabiners and GOProuders are all delusional if they think they can change the Republican party from within. Their party has been hijacked by right wing religious extremists Tea Partyers. Until they are fumigated and destroyed, there will never be inclusion for LGBT people. Unfortunately, the GOP is in tow to the religious right, similar to some in our own Tory party.

    1. GingerlyColors 25 Oct 2012, 7:32am

      It seems that the Tea Party tail is now wagging the Republican dog. As more Americans come round to the idea of marriage equality and an increasing percentage declare no religious affiliation the Republican Party risks ending up out in the political wilderness unless they cut the Tea Party loose. In such a senario the Tea Party may campaign as a separate party or end up teaming up with the right wing Constitution Party. The Constitution Party along with the Libertarian and Green Parties are the three lesser parties in America’s Republican and Democrat dominated political system. While the Libertarians support same-sex marriage and greater abortion rights (although there are pro-life as well as pro-choice Libertarians), the Constitution Party oppose LGBT rights and even support the right of states to recriminalize homosexuality. The Constitution Party is also 100% opposed to abortion which no doubt means that they will not even allow it when a woman’s life is endangered.

  15. It’s rumored that Log Cabin gave their endorsement because of a possible promise by Romney to sign ENDA ( LGBT Employment Non-Discrimination Act), if he becomes President.

    Quite seriously I haven’t even got around to my fears for gay rights under Romney. I’m too worried about the world as a whole when a lunatic fringe mormon gets handed the nucler launch codes

    1. Must admit, this frightens the hell out of me, too!

    2. I always think it would be interesting and curious, to see the lunatics taking over and running the madhouse. Like if the Joker took over Gotham City in The Dark Knight .

    3. I think that’s reasonable tbh. Whatever he promised the Log Cabin quislings (and Obama couldn’t get ENDA through a Dem house with his endorsement. Romney? No chance) I can’t stop thinking about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6udew9axmdM

      The concept of a Romney presidency, given that he believes that bunk, and it is so intrinsic to him that he was a Bishop in the faith, scares me too.

    4. GingerlyColors 25 Oct 2012, 7:21am

      Nor do I find it comforting if Mahmoud Amendinejad gets his hands on Iran’s nuclear launch codes as well.

    5. Yeh, I’m certain the first place he’ll destroy is S.F. because of all the homosexuals there followed by other gay-friendly cities worldwide.

  17. Knee-jerk tribal support. If Romney called for the public execution of gays and lesbians they would say they were lobbying behind the scenes to soften the policy and would denounce the Democrats’ opposition to it as cynically courting the l&g vote.

  18. Gay Republicans????? Next thing will be prostitute nuns.
