Montana Republican Party wants to make homosexuality a crime

At a time when gays have been gaining victories across the country, the Republican Party in Montana still wants to make homosexuality illegal.

The party adopted an official platform in June that keeps a long-held position in support of making homosexual acts illegal, a policy adopted after the Montana Supreme Court struck down such laws in 1997.

The fact that it’s still the official party policy more than 12 years later, despite a tidal shift in public attitudes since then and the party’s own pledge of support for individual freedoms, has exasperated some GOP members.

“I looked at that and said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,'” state Sen. John Brueggeman, R-Polson, said last week. “Should it get taken out? Absolutely. Does anybody think we should be arresting homosexual people? If you take that stand, you really probably shouldn’t be in the Republican Party.”

    A while back I said that the events in Uganda which were USA driven, were a dry for for the USA.

    Loks like i might have been right.

    I would not be suprised if there is an attempt to make homosexuality illegal in the USA. The support the extremists have does make it theoretically possible if ordinary people don’t stand up to them.

    The Republican Party Platforms in many states support all sorts of insanity. The Texas Republican party platform looks like it was written by an EXTREMIST in the 1400’s.

    Often the only folks who care enough to be that active in the party are various and sundry extremists.

    Unfortunately too many folks in the eastern part of the USA laugh at this stuff — or, they think it unimportant.

    Gay folks will only be seriously targeted if our “leaders” decide they need a scapegoat.

    By the way, T folks of all sorts will also be targets — no matter what their politics. The homophobes automatically include us with the LGB folks — no matter what we say or do. Their churches + the Roman Catholic Church see us as our “birth sex”. If the fundamentalists and the Bishops have their way — we’ll go into the cattle cars too — no matter what “brand” of trans or ex-trans we say we are.
