"It's an axiom of modern American politics that most Republicans are reflexively - even stridently - anti-gay... To be sure, anti-gay sentiments still run deep in the GOP. Yet if one digs deeper than the conventional wisdom, one finds large, overlooked pockets of gay tolerance among rank-and-file Republicans."

-- The Cato Institute's David Lampo in an op-ed to the Los Angeles Times entitled, "Is the GOP deeply anti-gay? Hardly." The Cato Institute is funded by the Koch Brothers - who are also heavily involved in funding the Tea Party movement and far-right anti-gay Republican political candidates.
