Log Cabin Republicans Not Homophobic Enough For Gay Conservatives

No, seriously:

Gay conservatives have now officially moved to shore up their POV and credibility in the party by launching a 527. Ben Smith @ The Politico:

A dissident faction of gay conservatives is launching a rival group to
the traditional voice of gay Republicans, the Log Cabin Republicans.GOPROUD, the new 527 group, will launch next week, according to a media advisory. The contact given for the group is Christopher Barron,
a former Log Cabin political director who broke with the group.

…”Essentially, there’s no voice for gay Republicans or gay conservatives in particular in D.C. right now. Log Cabin has been completely and totally absent here in D.C. for months and months,” Barron said. “It has simply moved way too far from the left and is basically indistinguishable from any other gay left organization.”

Ben also notes that the LCR’s support of hate crimes legislation had also rubbed conservative gays the wrong way, further spurring the decision to spin off an effort to take matters into a different direction.

Only self-hating gays are welcome in the right’s tiny flea-circus tent.
