Last week, we reported on the efforts of Cathie Adams, the former Texas GOP chairwoman who now leads the state’s Eagle Forum group, to preserve language in the state party platform that declared “the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit.”
While the party ultimately removed the “fabric of society language” — ignoring Adams’s warning that such a move would lead to society’s “demise” — it added language endorsing the discredited practice of “ex-gay” therapy.
Adams told Texas Public Radio that she had pushed for the therapy language at the request of a self-proclaimed “ex-gay” friend , who wrote the resolution.
Meanwhile, as Adams was championing the anti-gay resolutions at the GOP convention, she was also fighting a battle for hearts and minds on Facebook. When someone posted one of our articles on Adams’ wall, she responded, “Homosexuality is NOT NORMAL behavior,” and proceeded to debate with pro-LGBT commenters, telling them, “You are loved. Sinful behavior is not,” “When sin is flouted it cannot be ignored,” and “I love you! I want the BEST for you now and in eternity.”
“You are dissing our Founders and the Constitution they gave us,” she added.
