Alabama GOP purges pro-gay marriage member

Post by Dennis324 on Wed Aug 21, 2013 10:50 am



Senior officials of the Alabama Republican Party are trying to pass an amendment which would remove any member of the group’s steering committee who publicly opposes the GOP platform outlined in 2012’s Republican National Convention.
 
The move is widely seen as an attempt to purge 23-year-old steering committee member and University of Alabama College Republicans president Stephanie Petelos after she made statements perceived as supportive of gay marriage to a local news station.
 
“The majority of students don’t derive the premise of their argument for or against gay marriage from religion, because we’re governed by the constitution and not the Bible,” Petelos told al.com in reaction to the Supreme Court’s overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act in June.
We don't want that mess down here.

Maybe 'Compassionate Conservatism' is why the GOP has lost the election the past 2 terms.

Alabama's GOP: hate gays, fear God, or fuck off...

Please see the thread about the danger of the GOP ignoring demographic changes, I think this equally applies.

We..we just don't want that down here.  Gays make up only about 4% of the population.  If they don't want to come to Alabama, no sweat off our brow.  We'll gladly take the Christian Conservatives in their place.
