Kevin And Don Respond To Being Self Loathing

Looking back at their journey from the Stonewall Democratic Club to Log Cabin Republicans, they claim it was one that was actually started by the democrats. After being told that marriage as not a priority on the agenda in 1995, they became disillusioned with the DEMS. For a decade they felt like they did not belong until they met the republicans of the Log Cabin Republican Club and discovered they too shared a dream of marriage equality. This blog is now a digital time capsule of their time as Republicans and moderated by a friend and supporter.

A Letter in The Times

How big is the Republicans' tent?
Los Angeles Times, October 22, 2006
Re "Some Seek 'Pink Purge' in the GOP," Oct. 18

The Christian conservative wing of the Republican Party should tread lightly on what some have dubbed a "pink purge" of high-ranking gay Republicans on Capitol Hill and in the Bush administration. As a trustee of the Log Cabin Republicans (a gay Republican group), I stand for the original values of the party, which include personal responsibility, low taxes, limited government, a strong defense and free markets. I also caution anyone even contemplating a "pink purge" that we have a lot of mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, relatives, friends and co-workers who are Republican and are equally appalled by the call for a gay purge. Purge the party of us and there may well be unforeseen consequences. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has shown that the party's tent is large enough for opposing views. It is shameful that the leaders in Washington do not see his vision as the start of a trend. Instead, some of them seem hellbent on destroying the party of Abraham Lincoln.KEVIN NORTEHollywood
