    Position #1:

    Typified by Dick Cheney, former Republican vice-president and architect of America's energy policy and the invasion of Iraq.

    Feels gays should have full rights as American Citizens.

    Gay connection - daughter.

    Relation with daughter - supportive and close.

    Recent Activities - toured with an "anti-President Obama" and pro-torture agenda.

    Position #2:

    Typified by Phyllis Schlafly, mother of the Modern Day American Conservative Movement.

    Feels she did everything to raise her son as a heterosexual. Strong father, subservient mother, Christian values, no exposure to sex, home schooling. Is completely dumbfounded. Besides bewilderment, gives no official public opinion other than her son shares her position.

    Gay connection - son.

    Relation with son - Publicly admits to being confused, but loves and lives with son.

    Recent Activities - Her straight son Andrew founded Conservapedia. At the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration suggested that "Congress ought to talk about impeachment" of Justice Anthony Kennedy, citing as specific grounds Justice Kennedy's deciding vote to abolish the death penalty for minors.

    Position #3:

    Typified by Alan Keyes, former Republican presidential candidate, former Republican Senate Nominee - ran against Barrack H. Obama and served in the U.S. Foreign Service, was appointed Ambassador to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under President Ronald Reagan.

    Feels gay sex is selfish hedonism and gay behaviour should be a criminal offense. Feels gay marriage destroys fundamental moral institutions and gays should have no protections such as hate crime laws, job protection, discrimination protection in housing.

    Gay connection - daughter.

    Relation with daughter - in the name of family values, Alan felt it appropriate to cut all financial and emotional ties with his daughter and ordered her out of the house, immediately. He contended that he must, "stand for the truth [Jesus Christ] represents," even if it breaks his heart.

    Recent Activities - On May 8, 2009, Keyes and 21 others were arrested while protesting President Barack Obama's commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame. Keyes was charged with trespassing and released on $250 bond. He was arrested a second time on May 16.
    Following Obama's inauguration, Keyes denied he had been constitutionally inaugurated, refused to call him president, and called him an "usurper" and a "radical communist".

    Phylis Schlafly and Alan Keyes are hardly mainstream Republicans/Conservatives.
    Thread fail.

    Is there any hope for rdean?

    Will he ever recognize his group-think affliction?

    Stay tuned for another boring thread masquarading as 'thought' from rdean.

    Get ready for a bunch of irrelevant questions (Didn't Keyes serve in a Republican administration?) to support his absurd contention.

    That doesn't stop their positions from being very Republican/conservative.

    Did rdean have an epithany that Republicans are people too with different values, experiences and ideas? Is it possible that he's learned they come in all colors, shapes, and sizes? Wow. This is truly a remarkable day at USMB!

    Overall, I'd say this is a pretty queer thread.

    Shapes and sizes? OK.

    Colors? Not so much.
