Anti-LGBT Language Struck from State Republican Platform
in a near-unanimous vote, the Republican Party of California struck anti-gay language from its Party platform and added language supporting non-discrimination legislation for individuals based on sexual orientation because of the work of Log Cabin Republicans of California.
“Log Cabin Republicans of California are proud of the support of the California Republican Party to build a more inclusive GOP,” Log Cabin Republicans of California Chairman John Musella stated. “We built a strong, broad-based conservative coalition to bring about this change which received nearly unanimous support of the delegates. We’re helping to build a platform and a Republican Party where all Californians are welcome.”Read more
It's Not Just the GOP Fighting for Its Antigay 'Religious Freedom'
Our Chapter President Matthew Craffey recently penned an op-ed piece for LGBT publication "The Advocate" regarding the Kim Davis case and the battle over "religious freedom":
The behavior of Republican politicians is nothing if not predictable. But what is surprising is that this battle is exposing elected Democrats who can no longer simply stay indifferent on this issue or hide behind Obama’s record as they are now compelled to carry out the law. To put it more bluntly, shit just got real.
Davis is in fact a Democrat. The Democratic candidate for Kentucky governor supports her actions and has actually said he wants to pass a law protecting county clerks from having to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples if they have religious objections. The federal judge who sent Davis to jail for not carrying out her duties was an appointee of Republican President George W. Bush. In fact, the entire “religious freedom” protections idea stemmed from the bill President Bill Clinton signed into law in 1993. As an Illinois state senator in 1998, Obama also voted in favor of a version of a similar bill. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has famously supported states’ rights on the issue of marriage, which would ostensibly allow “religious freedom” laws to be used to deny same-sex couples the ability to marry.

Log Cabin Republicans Response to Supreme Court Marriage Decision
Moments ago, the Supreme Court of the United States issued its landmark ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges. In its 5-4 opinion, the court ruled that there is a constitutional right to marriage equality in all 50 states.
In providing the Opinion of the Court, Justice Kennedy wrote:
"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right."
