Texas GOP Party Platform Endorses “Reparative Therapy” for Gays

June 12, 2014

From WFAA, the Dallas, Texas ABC affiliate, comes the disturbing news that the Texas GOP platform, which was recently ratified at their state convention, now endorses “reparative therapy” for lesbian and gay people.

“The Texas Republican Party now endorses so-called ‘reparative therapy’ for gays, under a new platform given final approval at its annual convention Saturday.

“The new anti-gay language never came up for debate before roughly 7,000 delegates ratified a Texas GOP platform that tea party groups succeeded in pushing further to the right, including winning a harder line on immigration.”

EEWC-CFT member, and Vice President of PFLAG Austin, Susan Cottrell, responds on her blog, Freedhearts, here.
