Well, Rick Perry "converted", right? And if Perry can do it, anyone should be able to. At least, that's the argument they continue to make.

If they only knew ...

That is certainly the tiniest baby step they could take without falling over from lack of motion.

"Rudy Oeftering of gay conservative group Metroplex Republicans remained optimistic about the party platform.

"'We’ve gotten nothing but support from the rank and,' Oeftering said.'We sense a real change afoot in the Republican party. We think it’s a shrinking group within the party, that’s held power within the party for a very long time that just needs to catch up on this critical issue.'"

He's cheering that. How sick.

I think the platform should be changed to "homosexuality tears at the mixed fibers of society," instead of, "social fabric of society."

Texan Republicans tried to convert to homo sapiens status, but it did not work. They are still in homo erecti mode.

The GOOD thing about these hissy-fit republicans is they are chasing their voters away to the Democrats
