The Homophobia of the Republican Party

If the Republican primary process has taught us anything, its that the Republican Party, by and large, opposes treating LGBT Americans as equals under the law. Below are a few videos that I believe, explain the party’s stance on gay rights issues rather well – ok, one video per candidate.

While the rest of the civilized world has recognized homosexuals as equals for decades, the Republican Party still supports categorizing gay members of society as second class citizens. Fortunately, Americans have surpassed the intellict of the Republican Party, as an increasing majority support granting gays and lesbians the same marriage rights granted to heterosexual couples. What prevents the Right from accepting gays as equal members of society is beyond reason.

Enjoy the nonsense.

I thinks that’s all of them…Former Governor Huntsman is the only candidate who takes the a humane approach towards the issue. Here are some clips from former presidential candidate – used loosely – Herman Cain, and Pat Robertson, the radical host of The 700 Club – one of the top five favorite shows of Republicans.
