Only 5 out of 6,000 Minnesota GOP Precincts Give in to Log Cabin Effort to Abandon Marriage, Family

 

MinnPost.com on a failed effort by the "Log Cabin Republicans" to get the GOP to abandon their grassroots support for marriage and family :

Out of more than 6,000 precincts, only five passed on caucus night last week a resolution promoted by the Minnesota Log Cabin Republicans to change the definition of family in the party platform.

... The resolution asks the Minnesota Republican Party to delete the word "traditional" from its plank on "Strengthening Families and Communities." Log Cabin Republicans also want to delete the section titled "Defend the Definition of Marriage," which calls for the state and U.S. constitutions to define marriage as between one man and one woman and rejects civil unions.
