Why I am abandoning the GOP

Guest Commentary

I am an out and proud Christian. I am a fiscal conservative. I am also a lesbian, so let me just say how psychologically damaging it is to be told by complete strangers that what you do in the privacy of your own home is unnatural, you’re sick in the head, that the right man hasn’t given it to you the right way, that you’re going to hell, that you need to be fixed, that you’re probably a pedophile, that you are destroying the institution of marriage or that you are bringing the wrath of God upon your country. This is what the Republican Party does and these are the ideas it supports.
