It's a huge document. I think it pretty much spells out the goals of the Republican Party in detail. How about that making a "marriage license" a FELONY for gays? http://static.texastribune.org/media/documents/FINAL_2010_STATE_REPUBLICAN_PARTY_PLATFORM.pdf Free Speech for the Clergy We urge change of the Internal Revenue Code to allow a religious organization to address issues without fear of losing its tax-exempt status. Ten Commandments We oppose any governmental action to restrict, prohibit, or remove public display of the Decalogue or other religious symbols. Confederate Widows Plaque We call for restoration of plaques honoring We oppose the recognition of and granting of benefits to people who represent themselves as domestic partners without being legally married. Marriage Licenses We support legislation that would make it a felony to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple and for any civil official to perform a marriage ceremony for such. Homosexuality We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our countrys founders, and shared by the majority of Texans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle in our public education and policy, nor should family be redefined to include homosexual couples. We are opposed to any granting of special legal entitlements, refuse to recognize, or grant special privileges including, but not limited to: marriage between persons of the same sex (regardless of state of origin), custody of children by homosexuals, homosexual partner insurance or retirement benefits. We oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values. Texas Sodomy Statutes We oppose the legalization of sodomy. We demand that Congress exercise its authority granted by the U.S. Constitution to withhold jurisdiction from the federal courts from cases involving sodomy. We support the Life at Conception Act. Morning After Pill We oppose sale and use of the dangerous Morning After Pill. no homosexual or any individual convicted of child abuse or molestation should have the right to custody or adoption of a minor child, and that visitation with minor children by such persons should be prohibited We oppose adoption by homosexuals. Social Security - We support an immediate and orderly transition to a system of private pensions based on the concept of individual retirement accounts, and gradually phasing out the Social Security tax. To eliminate much of the bureaucracy in todays burdensome Medicaid system, we support reallocating the majority of Medicaid spending into simple vouchers for lower income individuals to purchase their own insurance. remind administrators and school boards that corporal punishment is effective and legal in Texas. Controversial Theories Realizing that conflict and debate is a proven learning tool in classrooms, we support objective teaching and equal treatment of all sides of scientific theories, including evolution, Intelligent Design, global warming, political philosophies, and others. We believe theories of life origins and environmental theories should be taught as challengeable scientific theory subject to change as new data is produced, not scientific law. Teachers and students should be able to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these theories openly and without fear of retribution or discrimination of any kind. We oppose any sex education other than abstinence until heterosexual marriage. We support school subjects with emphasis on Judeo-Christian principles (including the Ten Commandments) upon which America was founded We affirm that the public acknowledgement of God is undeniable in our history and is vital to our freedom, prosperity and strength. We pledge our influence toward a return to the original intent of the First Amendment and toward dispelling the myth of separation of church and state. We call on the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of these United States to clarify Section 1 of the 14th amendment to limit citizenship by birth to those born to a citizen of the United States: with no exceptions.
