Boy, has the state of Georgia's Republican Party hit an all time low with their senatorial candidate, U.S. Representative Phil Gingrey! He's evidently the conservatives' conservative. There's no level too low for him not to try stooping to. He better hope Georgians are homophobic and idiots if he thinks he's got a scintilla of hope as he fights in the primary. Maybe it's that desperation that allowed him to put out this campaign ad:
So just what is this Youth Pride organization that Gingrey is so opposed to? From Youth Pride's website:
For 18 consecutive years YouthPride has remained committed to the LGBTQQ [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning] youth it serves. Nothing has stopped YouthPride providing critical services to LGBTQQ youth and their families at no charge. YouthPride has prevented 28 suicides in 2013.
So this organization is saving lives, counselling and helping young people deal and cope with the hands they were dealt in life. This isn't a recruitment organization as this conservative moron would have the people of Georgia believe. Rather they are a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, uniting, and dignifying the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth and young adults. Neither coming out nor living in the closet can be easy. But if voters allow a candidate's disparaging of a life-saving organization to impact their vote, they deserve the horrors and repression they'll get if they elect Congressman Gingrey to the senate.
