Anti-Gay Texas Republicans to Join George Rekers Outside the Closet

Woah. Via the Bilerico Project, the Texas GOP is going completely insane. A copy of their platform is apparently floating around the interwebs and they're so busy making sure every little teeny facet of gay life regulated and punished that it's amazing they have time for the really important stuff, like keeping the gun show loophole open and executing mentally retarded inmates.

But thisee here is my favorite part:
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.
You know what else contributes to the breakdown of the family unit and spread "dangerous, communicable diseases" (read: STIs)? Heterosexuals. Since you have to be married in order to divorce, we can't go blaming the queers for the breakdown of the family. And anyway, should gay people just be like George Rekers and stay in the closet and hire "baggage handlers" from time to time?

Okay, Rick Perry, I get it. Escalating anti-gay extremism on the part of a public figure usually precedes the accidental exposure of the fact that the figure is, in fact, totally gay. Somebody ought to be checking the parking lot at the Midtown Spa...
