Texas GOP to Log Cabin Republicans: We just aren't that into you


Once again, the Log Cabin Republicans have been kicked to the curb by their fellow conservatives.

The Texas State Republican Convention will not allow the LCR to host a booth next week at it's annual convention.

Via press release:

“Overall, Log Cabin Republicans of Texas has found incredible support within the Republican party — Texans, like the rest of the country, are evolving on LGBT rights issues,” said Log Cabin Republicans of Texas Chairman Jeffrey Davis.

“The Republican Party of Texas has even welcomed many of our members as delegates to the Texas State Republican Convention. However, the party has denied our several attempts to host a booth in the convention exhibit hall, citing archaic language in the party platform to support their actions.

"We deserve to occupy a booth just like anyone else, and it’s time that the Texas GOP’s hypocritical policies and procedures are replaced by new ones that match the general opinion of Texan Republican voters.”

According to Texas GOP Chairman Steve Munisteri the group was denied not because they are gay but because "of the association with the promotion for gay marriage" - which is not in the party's platform.
