Ed Gillespie, chairman of the Republican National Committee, said in an interview published Tuesday that gay activists are guilty of bigotry, and he suggested the GOP will promote the traditional notion of marriage as a part of its 2004 platform.
Gillespie said this "bigotry" comes in the form of gay activists using the government to protect their lifestyle.
He accused homosexual activists of intolerance and bigotry by attempting to force the rest of the population to accept alien moral standards. As a result, "tolerance is no longer defined as my accepting people for who they are," the RNC chairman said.
"Many of us who are practicing Catholics deal with [other people´s homosexuality] in our own fashion," Mr. Gillespie said. "I accept people for who they are — and love them. That doesn't mean I have to agree or turn my back on the tenets of my faith when it comes to homosexuality."

Can someone explain to me how this asshat became leader of the Party of Lincoln a party that is, at its core, about limited government intervention and states' rights? Mr. Gillespie, you are a pathetic excuse for an American, and you're an embarrassment to our country. Are you and the Good Rev. Phelps personal friends?
I'm so angry at how one of the two major political parties in this country has become so perverted by these brain dead religious zealots who have no business procreating much less shaping public policy.
2004 should be fun since this jackass is intent on making us targets.
