Log Cabin Republicans responds to the GOP's most anti-LGBT Platform yet!

Compiled by MK Scott - SGN contributing writer

Log Cabins are fighting mad and shocked that the GOP passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party's 162-year history.

The email, sent on Tuesday evening, from Log Cabin President Gregory T. Angelo, writes:

'This isn't my GOP, and I know it's not yours either. Heck, it's not even Donald Trump's! When given a chance to follow the lead of our presumptive presidential nominee and reach out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful terrorist massacre in Orlando on the gay nightclub Pulse, the Platform Committee said NO.'

Angelo then continues, 'Take back the Platform. Take back the Party. Stand up today and let the folks on the Platform Committee who paved the way to this foolishness know you're not going down without a fight!'



Here is the full text of Angelo's email:

There's no way to sugar-coat this: I'm mad as hell - and I know you are, too.

Moments ago, the Republican Party passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party's 162-year history. Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of 'pray the gay away' - it's all in there.

This isn't my GOP, and I know it's not yours either. Heck, it's not even Donald Trump's! When given a chance to follow the lead of our presumptive presidential nominee and reach out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful terrorist massacre in Orlando on the gay nightclub Pulse, the Platform Committee said NO.

BUT...now is not the time to sit around feeling sorry for ourselves. Log Cabin Republicans has been officially credentialed for the Republican National Convention, and when it convenes in Cleveland in a mere 6 days' time I want to be able to take a stand, but we're going to need your support to do it.

Cleveland is rightly making the most of their time in the spotlight, and prices for advertising in area news outlets are sky-high.

Take back the Platform. Take back the Party. Stand up today and let the folks on the Platform Committee who paved the way to this foolishness know you're not going down without a fight!

Sincerely,
Gregory T. Angelo
President
