GOP: Discrimination against gay North Carolinians OK

Check this out from the platform committee report at this past weekend’s GOP state convention in Greensboro.

Government should treat all citizens impartially, without regard to wealth, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, sex, political affiliation or national origin. We oppose all forms of invidious discrimination. Sexual orientation is not an appropriate category.

It is hard not to read this and conclude that the “all citizens” that the GOP believes government should treat impartially does not include gay and lesbian North Carolinians.

    They listed wealth first, why would one list wealth beside race, ethnicity, religion, disability, or sex. How twisted does your view of the world have to be to list wealth and political affiliation with these other categories?

    The Ron Paul delegation proposed a change and after much debate, it passed.

    The wording was changed to:

    Government should treat all citizens impartially.

    The tide is turning, folks.

    So which is it? Did the party pass the discriminatory language or not? Special thanks to the News and Observer for not having any info whatsoever on this issue on their website.
