This has freaked a lot of folks out. Even our own guys over at Ace of Spades are overreacting. MOst of this stuff I have no problem with: pledge to uphold the platform, or don’t run. The sexual stuff is a little silly, unenforceable, and even un-Christian; if Jesus can forgive your past infidelities, why can’t the Laurens Co. Republicans?
And since there’s no legal way to enforce any of it, one has to ask: WTF were they thinking in pushing this, given that it plays directly into the Progressive libel that Republicans are theocrats?
