Now I understand that the talent pool is severely limited when it comes to HomoCON’s, but just when you think that the Log Cabin Republicans can’t get any worse after their endorsement of Mitt Romney for President now that the LCR executive director R. Clarke Cooper will be stepping down they will be replacing him with Gregory T. Angelo, who announced his support for Newt Gingrich’s presidential bid just weeks after Gingrich signed the National Organization for Marriages ‘s hate pledge to destroy LGBT rights on the federal level.
According to Joe Jervis over at the award winning newblog Joe My God who references this 2011 interview “Angelo appears to be the typical homocon who proclaims his Christianity and denounces gay pride parades. Because, you know, he’s butch. Or something.”
Most of the other gay Republicans Greg knows, he says, are not fans of the pride parade. They’re not wearing their sexuality on their sleeve, he says. Many are partnered. A lot are business owners. “The bottom line is many just want to live their lives in quiet dignity. Their rights are important to them and achieving equal rights is important to them but the way to do it isn’t really to go out and bang a drum and make a lot of noise. It’s more so to make a difference within the party and to sit down with fellow Republicans and sit down with their partners, sit down with the foster children they’re taking care of, sit down and explain that they’re a business owner who is also not happy with the MTA payroll tax in New York and make the case that we are normal,” he says. Greg has met with people who think all gay men are hairdressers or fashion designers.
“Business owner” of course is a Republican code word for “anarcho-capitalistic, exploiting, dumb fuck who thinks his employees are slaves”
LCR-ers and GOProud-ers have: no shame, no self-esteem, no decency, no sense of irony, but
have all the self-loathing hate that money can buy!!!
Any self-respecting LGBT individual or LGBT organization wouldn’t be caught within 10 feet of them.

” The Log Cabin Republicans are good people doing good work. We need all fair-minded Americans to rally to the side of equality, and that most definitely includes Republicans. They provide a voice within the Republican Party that’s important.”
I rest my case.
