(Chron)   Interesting: the Issue of Homosexuals divides the TX GOP platform committee. Sad: between those who want to say it "tears the fabric of Society apart" and offends God, and those who merely want to endorse therapy to help them "escape" their lifestyle   (blog.chron.com) divider line 75

The funny thing?

The people who said those things were RIGHT every single time.  Change ALWAYS destroys the "fabric" of the society that came before it, hopefully for the better.   The immutable First Law of nature is Adapt or Die, which is why "conservatives" are pretty much doomed to be angry, bewildered and frustrated in any healthy society

One of things that amuses me about all this is that these "Christians" forget the love thy neighbor part, and don't trust God to punish the "sinners" in the afterlife.  They want to be sure they are punished now.

it says something about fark that trying to help people deal with this mental health issue is "sad" while forcing society to accept this particular group of people where just "born that way" is good.

"We recognize the legitimacy and value of counseling which offers reparative therapy and treatment to patients who are seeking escape from the homosexual lifestyle. No laws or executive orders shall be imposed to limit or restrict access to this type of therapy."

You know gay rights have made massive strides when that's the best bone the Texas GOP can throw it's bible brigade.

But what's with the "patients?" Is this some role-playing thing?

Benghazi
And then there's this:

"We call upon the United States House of Representatives to appoint a select committee and a special prosecutor in order to subpoena testimony to fully investigate all aspects of the Benghazi debacle, including, but not limited to, the reason Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi; the denied assistance before and during the attack, the accounts of personnel who participated in the defense of the Embassy Annex, and the apparent attempt by the White House to deceive the American public with a concocted story about a spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video. We call for bringing those responsible to justice."

They are, after all, officially against critical thinking.


"We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student's fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority."

I'm pretty sure the cure for homophobia is the same as for any other phobia: repeated exposure to the source of fear.  The more people get to know actual gays, and see that they are just regular folk, the less likely they are to think they're devious demon people out to make their kids queer.

I don't know, but I think if you want to make them stop, you're going to have to hold them down, rip their pants off, and work your dick right into their butt over and over again.

That's not exactly true. Not all change is good - just look at Windows 8. Ahem. Conservatism to a degree is an important failsafe. If you have a couple, one can say "Let's go on a vacation," and the other may say "We can't afford it." That's in general the purpose of conservatism in government, to be a necessary pragmatism that helps differentiate hairbrained flights of fancy from good progression.

That, of course, is not what the GOP has been doing for a long time. But a reasonable conservative party (yes, they exist, look at Canada) can serve as a legitimate balance as the minority party.

That would be the House GOP slashing the State Dept's budget for security.  They should probably stop barking up that tree.
