And the Purification continues

The GOP continues to push to the margins, to the shadows, dare I say even into the closet, anyone of influence or public prominence who happens to be gay -- unless they are anti-gay-rights gays.

When a neo-con foreign policy spokesman for Romney, a gent who's a former spokesman for John Bolton, gets pushed out of his job because the punditry and preachers of the Right are aghast that he's ... GAY ... then, yes, the message being conveyed to the nation (gay and straight) is crystal clear.

Especially when Romney lets it happen.
Andrew Sullivan says: "The GOP will have no gays within it unless they are prepared openly to oppose their own core rights and dignity. Romney has gone from promising to be more pro-gay in the Senate than Ted Kennedy than hanging a lone gay spokesman out to dry and pledging to write into the very constitution that gays are second class citizens.

If you're gay, or your friend, son, daughter, brother, sister, aunt or uncle is gay, you just learned something about what the GOP now is. Do not forget it."
