AUSTIN, TX — (06-19-22) — The Republican Party of Texas have just passed its latest anti-LGBT agenda platform that included a ban on same-sex marriage. In the GOP platform voted on by delegates at the Republican party’s biennial convention on Saturday, one section called ‘Homosexuality and Gender Issues’, says that “homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice.”

Chris Halbohn, president of the Log Cabin Republicans of Houston, an organization that represents LGBT conservatives, called that line “an unnecessarily gratuitous addition to the Republican Party of Texas’ platform.”

“We exist to advance that niche voice within the Republican Party, because there are plenty of gay conservatives out there, there are plenty of lesbian conservatives out there, and plenty of trans conservatives out there,” said Chris Halbohn, in an interview with The Texas Newsroom.

The delegates also agreed on language that said Republicans don’t believe in “granting” special status to LGBTQ+ people or “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”

Halbohn, in his continued support of a political party that can’t stand his own existence, said he does agree the state should not grant special treatment for people who identify as LGBTQ+.

For the record, LGBTQ+ people do not have any special status or treatment anywhere in the United States.

The Republican Party has been on a never ending crusade against the LGBTQ community over the past several years and with the 2022 mid-term elections approaching, they are stepping up their attacks.

The national Log Cabin Republicans issued a statement after the exclusion of the state chapter, calling the decision “narrow-minded” and “politically short-sighted.”

“The Texas Republican Party has an opportunity to play a pivotal role in our shared victory — but weak leadership that compromises the party’s appeal to a new generation of voters … should reassess their priorities,” the statement said. “Losers don’t get to change the course of the nation — only winners. And inclusion wins.”

Jack Finger, a precinct chairman from San Antonio, agrees with excluding LGBT Republicans from the convention. He even protested the fact that the Reepublican Party’s convention’s had even scheduled an event put on by the Log Cabin Republicans of Texas.

“Their ideas we consider are, quite frankly, evil,” said Finger said. “We think their ideals will destroy our society.” said Finger.

Throughout the dark age Republican Party conference, anti-LGBT flyers were passed around, including one that was called “Be Alert and Aware of the Homosexual Agenda.”
