The chairman of the pro-LGBT ‘Log Cabin Republicans’ of Texas resigned after the state GOP designated homosexuality as an ‘abnormal lifestyle choice’ in its party platform.
Texas MassResistance is leading the way back to normalcy.
On July 24 the Texas Tribune, a prominent left-wing newspaper, published a banner article “‘We failed’: Gay Republicans who fought for acceptance in Texas GOP see little progress,” describing how the Texas branch of the Log Cabin Republican organization, which pushes homosexual and transgender issues into the Republican Party across the country, was now admitting defeat in Texas.
But what was the tipping point? The Texas Tribune article specifically mentions the “anti-LGBTQ” language inserted into this year’s Texas GOP Party platform, despite LGBT-lobby objections.
At the 2022 GOP Convention held in Houston on June 16–18, Texas MassResistance delegates Tracy Shannon, the regional leader, and Kevin Whitt and their group were vocal and determined. They insisted that the strongly worded language regarding homosexual behavior which had been dropped from the state party platform in 2018 be re-inserted:
“Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental truths that have been ordained by God in the Bible.”
The platform chairman finally agreed to submit a different but powerful phrase for a vote by the platform committee: “Homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice.”
The debate on that plank was quite animated. A “gay” platform committee member and other “LGBT” people in the room vigorously objected to it, but Shannon, Whitt, and their group were not backing down an inch from insisting that the Texas Republican Party tell the truth. Their pro-LGBT opponents were unsuccessful – and our people were persuasive: the platform committee voted 17–14 in favor.
