First Republicans will be hosting a series of groundlevel political briefings in a convivial cocktail setting in the Presidential Suite at the Columbia Club in Indianapolis on March 22nd at 5:30 pm. We welcome all -- voter, political aspirant, office holder, Republican, and Former Republican alike -- who share our Principles, whether you've been involved with First Republicans in the past or not.

In this afterhours, the newly elected Marion County Republican Party Chair Tom John, joined by Vice Chair Jennifer Ping, will update us on the progress of the county party's re-organization and the opportunities ahead. Marion County City County Councilor Scott Keller will tell us what lies ahead for the City County Council. And Indiana Representative Jon Elrod will brief us on current affairs in this session of the Indiana Legislature.

Come join us, mix with others of similar vision, and learn how you can get involved! (RSVP helpful, but not required, to [email protected].)

The official Republican Party Principles are enshrined in the real Republican Party platform. In regard to America?s GLBT citizens, the Republican Party platform states:

Protecting Marriage
We strongly support President Bush?s call for a Constitutional amendment that fully protects marriage, and we believe that neither federal nor state judges nor bureaucrats should force states to recognize other living arrangements as equivalent to marriage. We believe, and the social science confirms, that the well-being of children is best accomplished in the environment of the home, nurtured by their mother and father anchored by the bonds of marriage. We further believe that legal recognition and the accompanying benefits afforded couples should be preserved for that unique and special union of one man and one woman which has historically been called marriage. ...

Kay, you are quite right. First Republicans would be in complete disagreement.

How typically condescending of you to dismiss the culpability caused by the ridiculous position you advocate.

Geez-O-Pete, the clan you are forever raising money for and promoting with the 'they're-not-all-bad' argument does nothing more than prolong our struggle for equality; in my not so humble opinion.
