Texas, Smell the Manure of Progress

From the 1904 (oops, strike that...) 2004 Texas Republican Platform:
Homosexuality- The Party believes that the practice of sodomy tears at the fabric of society, contributesto the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country's founders, and shared by the majority ofTexans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable "alternative" lifestyle in our public education and policy, nor should "family" be redefined to include homosexual "couples." We are opposed to any granting of special legal entitlements, recognition,or privileges including, but not limited to, marriage between persons of the same sex, custody of children by homosexuals, homosexual partner insurance or retirement benefits. We oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values.

It's comforting to know that this is the same party that brought us POTUS.
