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.

“Sometimes the adage doesn't hold true - some things are better 'never' than 'late'. That is exactly how I feel about Log Cabin's latest political blunder.
Perhaps it is self esteem but I cannot support anyone regardless of any type of political affiliation who does not support my future. I am married under California law and my marriage hangs in limbo. On November 20, 2012 we should know if the Supreme Court takes up the Prop 8 case. If they do, they could reverse the lower court's decision and even invalidate the marriages of the 18000 couples married in the Prop 8 window. 
As for DOMA, well a Romney presidency will, unlike the current administration, fight to keep DOMA's policy of regulating something that was previously left to the states besides violating Equal Protection.
Log Cabin's reversal of its 2004 position of not supporting presidential candidates that support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriages boggles my mind. Log Cabin even failed to get Romney to support ENDA to end discrimination in employment and housing in our country. If they would have accomplished that feat then I could have, at a minimum, seen some sort of logic behind their decision. But this illogical step backwards makes me sad because their former leadership worked to change opinions. Schwarzenegger's change of his position on marriage came after extensive lobbying from Log Cabin (Seehttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/ryan-j-davis/the-great-california-gay_b_96802.html ). I am disgusted.”
