|Beware of ¨Religious Nuts¨|
Ít´s true, what ever happened to the decent men and women who are/were Republicans? Those nice people? Where did they go? Did they die off along with, President ¨Tricky Dick¨ Nixon, Wendell Willkie, Martha and John Mitchell, Herbert Hoover, J. Edgar, Joseph McCarthy and Anita Bryant (oops, she´s not dead yet) ?
|Joseph Raymond "Joe" McCarthy (November 14, 1908 – May 2, 1957) was an American politician who served as a Republican U.S. Senator from the state of Wisconsin from 1947 until his death in 1957. Beginning in 1950, McCarthy became the most visible public face of a period in which Cold War tensions fueled fears of widespread Communist subversion. He was noted for making claims that there were large numbers of Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers inside the United States federal government and elsewhere. Ultimately, McCarthy's tactics and his inability to substantiate his claims led him to be censured by the United States Senate|
|Gracious, welcoming, friendly and ¨hardworking¨ my Dad the Republican|
|¨Generous of spirit and hospitable¨ my Mom the Republican|
My Republican parents weren´t bigots. Everyone, I mean everyone, were welcomed into our home (including me and my heterosexual older sister and all of our acquaintances and friends).
I know, I was there, a Gay son who witnessed their unending kindness and genuine caring for me and my LGBT close ones whom I introduced them too. My parents knew my friends and treated them with not only warm respect but also with a gracious and sincere welcome...their arms wide open!
The ONLY time I heard either of my parents refer unkindly about anyone was when they warned me to be very cautious around/about ¨religious nuts¨!
