The Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) is a federated gay and lesbian political organization in the United States with state chapters and a national office in Washington, DC. The group consists of gays and lesbians who are supporters of the Republican Party. The organization has long been formally committed to supporting gay and lesbian civil rights.[1] The organization does not take a position on transgender rights. When LCR talks about who they are and what they believe, they say nothing about transgender rights or issues.[2] The Republican Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in the United States of America, along with the Democratic Party. ...

The California organization had initially popularized the "Log Cabin Republicans" name, so the national organization adopted the name as well.

According to their website, the California group initially proposed to name themselves Lincoln Club, but found that name was already in use by another California Republican organization. Thus, an alternate name was chosen that still invoked the memory of President Lincoln: Log Cabin Republicans.

The Briggs Initiative and Ronald Reagan's legacy

There were many "gay Republican" groups and organizations through the country beginning in the '70s. The Log Cabin Republicans formed in 1977 in California primarily as a response to The Briggs Initiative. The Briggs Initiative was the first attempt to restrict gay and lesbian rights through a ballot measure. It attempted to ban gay or lesbian teachers from teaching in public schools. State legislator John Briggs, an extreme conservative, sponsored Prop 6. Briggs said it would "defend your children from homosexual teachers." Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Supervisor Dan White was leading the campaign for the passage of the Briggs Initiative. For a time, The Briggs Initiative was winning in early polls, with about 61% of voters supporting it and 31% opposing it. Also: 1977 (album) by Ash. ...

It is historically significant that the polls changed to reflect growing public opposition to Prop 6 when former California Governor Ronald Reagan, later President, opposed the measure. Legend had it that Reagan penned an editorial for a major California newspaper in which he opposed the initiative. However, in fall 2006, the Log Cabin Republicans began researching the legend of the Reagan editorial. On behalf of the group, student Grant Grays conducted research at the Tretter Collection in GLBT Studies at the University of Minnesota Libraries. Grays discovered that there was no editorial penned by Reagan. Rather, he sent a letter to a pro-Briggs Initiative group in which he opposed the measure. The entire text of this letter was never published. Only excerpts from it were reprinted in the September 24, 1978 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Reagan's letter allegedly stated, "Whatever else it is, homosexuality is not a contagious disease like the measles. Prevailing scientific opinion is that an individual's sexuality is determined at a very early age and that a child's teachers do not really influence this." “Reagan” redirects here. ...

In the end the Briggs Initiative was defeated by over one million votes. Even John Briggs' home territory, conservative Orange County, rejected the measure. Without Reagan's personal opposition to Briggs, it is likely the measure would have passed. There is, however, no public acknowledgment of Reagan's historic stance on the Briggs Initiative at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

National prominence during Dole presidential campaign

It was not until August 1995, when the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole returned the group's $1,000 campaign contribution, that they gained significant national attention.[5] § Robert Joseph Dole (born July 22, 1923) was a United States Senator from Kansas from 1969-1996, serving part of that time as United States Senate Majority Leader. ...


The campaign returned the contribution after being asked by openly lesbian columnist Deb Price of the Detroit News about it after she saw it on a public report from the Federal Elections Commission. The campaign sent a written statement to Price saying that Dole was in "100% disagreement with the agenda of the Log Cabin Republicans.[6] The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an agency created to administer and enforce the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1975 (FECA), the statute that regulates the financing of federal elections in the United States. ...


The story took on prominence in the media when it was revealed that before it was returned, the finance office of the campaign had solicited the contribution from Log Cabin, and at the event where it was given, Dole had personally spoken with Log Cabin's then-executive director Rich Tafel about the group and AIDS legislation it was promoting in the Senate, which Dole had agreed to co-sponsor after a meeting held at the campaign's headquarters with Tafel weeks earlier.[7] It resulted in a front-page story in the New York Times, penned by Richard L. Berke, then-chief political reporter for the daily.[8] The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ...


As reporters, including Berke, were seeking confirmation of the story before it broke, Dole's finance chairman, John Moran, asked Tafel to not speak to the press, and that Tafel's "steadfastness and statesmanship at this moment will be handsomely appreciated in the long run by the campaign." Tafel refused.[9]


Leading pundits accused Dole of being a "flip-flopper and a hypocrite".[10] Editorials ran in major newspapers, including the Washington Post, New York Times, Boston Globe, Atlanta Constitution and the Times of London, condemning Dole's action, joined by radio commentators Rush Limbaugh and Don Imus.[11][12] Under the pressure, Dole admitted during an October 1995 press briefing on Capitol Hill that he regretted the decision to return the check, that his campaign was responsible for it without consulting him.[13] "I think if they'd have consulted me, we wouldn't have done that, wouldn't have returned it," Dole said.[14] In fact, Dole was privately angered by the action when he first learned of it, but chose to defend his campaign manager for fear of facing the same problems he had with second-guessing his staff in his failed 1988 bid. Dole later told Washington Post editor and author Bob Woodward that the Log Cabin episode was a "mistake" because the decision to return the check "gets into Bob Dole the person. It's not so much about Bob Dole the candidate. It's the person. Is he tolerant? Does he tolerate different views? Tolerate someone with a different lifestyle?" He added, "This is basic, this is what people ought to know about you. Are you going to just do this because it sounds good politically?"[15] Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (born January 12, 1951) is an American radio talk show host and political commentator. ... John Donald Don Imus, Jr. ... Bob Woodward signs his book State of Denial after a talk in March 2007. ...


Log Cabin's leadership met with Dole's coalitions manager to discuss an endorsement after Dole's reversal.[16] Among various items, Tafel demanded there be no gay bashing in the speeches from the podium of the 1996 Republican National Convention, nor any anti-gay signs on the convention floor, in stark contrast to the previous party convention in 1992. He also wanted to see a gay person address the convention, and a public request from Dole's campaign for the Log Cabin nod.[17] On the opening night of the convention, Stephen Fong, then-president of the San Francisco chapter, gave a one-minute speech in a series of speeches from "main street Americans", but was not identified as gay.[18] While there was no mention of Fong's homosexuality in his speech, his presence at the podium for the Log Cabin delegates in the arena "was something that would have been unimaginable four years earlier," Tafel later wrote.[18] Two days later, Dole spokesperson Christina Martin told a reporter that the campaign "welcomed the endorsement of the Log Cabin Republicans."[18] Log Cabin voted to endorse Dole for President, and then-Republican National Committee chairman Haley Barbour approved the use of the RNC's press briefing room for Tafel, Log Cabin's convention delegates and officers of its national board to announce their decision.[18] The 1996 Republican National Convention convened at the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) in San Diego, California from August 12 to August 15. ... The Republican National Committee (RNC) provides national leadership for the Republican Party of the United States. ... Haley Reeves Barbour (born October 22, 1947) is the current Republican governor of Mississippi. ...


Later in the campaign, Tafel met with Dole's chief aide Sheila Burke, and the remaining demands Log Cabin made for their endorsement were met. In a statement released by Log Cabin, and confirmed to reporters by the campaign, Dole had pledged to maintain an executive order prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation in the federal workforce, and full funding for AIDS programs.[18] Dole went on to lose the election to Bill Clinton, winning 23% of the gay and lesbian vote.[19] William Jefferson Bill Clinton (born William Jefferson Blythe III[1] on August 19, 1946) was the 42nd President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001. ...


Platform

The Log Cabin stresses its loyalty to the Republican Party: "We are loyal Republicans," its website says. "We believe in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. Log Cabin represents an important part of the American family—taxpaying, hard working people who proudly believe in this nation's greatness." They take no position on abortion.-1... Limited government is most commonly government where its functions and powers are prescribed, limited, and restricted by law, usually in a written constitution. ... In military science, defense (or defence) is the art of preventing an enemy from conquering territory. ... A free market is an idealized market, where all economic decisions and actions by individuals regarding transfer of money, goods, and services are voluntary, and are therefore devoid of coercion and theft (some definitions of coercion are inclusive of theft). Colloquially and loosely, a free market economy is an economy... The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, Pub. ... Liberty is generally considered a concept of political philosophy and identifies the condition in which an individual has immunity from the arbitrary exercise of authority. ...


But Log Cabin dissents from conservative Republican views on matters relating to gay and lesbian rights. "We also believe all Americans have the right to liberty, freedom, and equality," it says. "Log Cabin stands up against those who preach hatred and intolerance. We stand up for the idea that all Americans deserve to be treated equally—regardless of their sexual orientation." Intolerance is the lack of ability or willingness to tolerate something. ... Sexual orientation refers to the direction of an individuals sexuality, normally conceived of as falling into several significant categories based around the sex or gender that the individual finds attractive. ...


Log Cabin's criticism of President Bush

The neutrality of this section is disputed.
Please see the discussion on the talk page.

The 1992 Log Cabin Republican convention was held in The Woodlands, Texas, a Houston exurb. It was the first time LCR had such a large presence of the major national press at a convention. The big issue was whether or not LCR would endorse the re-election of President George H. W. Bush. The group voted to deny that endorsement, based on the 1992 Republican National Convention that preceded it in Houston.[5] Image File history File links Unbalanced_scales. ...

Although Log Cabin supported the election of George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election, in September of 2004 LCR's board voted to withhold its endorsement of President George Bush's re-election, Bush's support of Federal Marriage Amendment being one of the significant reasons, although LCR tried to avoid criticizing Bush by name, preferring to attack the influence of the "radical right" on the Republican Party.[citation needed] Since then LCR has been critical of many actions (and inactions) of the Bush Administration. LCR said: "The radical right has drawn Republican leaders into a culture war as the 2004 election approaches. With poll results often against them, the radical right's desperate rhetoric has become overwhelmingly Christian in nature. They use fears about the 'gay agenda' in their effort to magnify a public backlash. They are desperate to not fail .

Criticism

Many social conservatives and Christian evangelicals in the Republican Party refuse to recognize Log Cabin as part of the party, and many Republican office-holders refuse to meet with them or respond to their initiatives.[citation needed] In March 2004, for example, Kansas senator Sam Brownback said that Log Cabin's activities in support of same-sex marriage were "hurting the party they claim to support."

Although most socially conservative Republicans have distanced themselves from the group, in 2004, Log Cabin made allies with mainstream GOP groups such as Christine Todd Whitman's It's My Party Too, Ann Stone's Republicans for Choice, The Republican Majority for Choice, The Wish List, Republicans for Environmental Protection, and The Republican Main Street Partnership.[22] In the last several years, these groups united to do political combat with social conservatives to re-assert the role of centrists and traditional conservatives in the Republican party.

Log Cabin Republicans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1414 words)
The Log Cabin Republicans is a political organization in the United States, consisting of a splinter group of gay, lesbian and bisexual who are also supporters of the Republican Party.
The most prominent of these, in 1977 California, founded "Log Cabin," as a rallying point for Republicans opposed to the Briggs Initiative, which for a time was winning in polls conducted prior to the election and was the first attempt to restrict gay and lesbian rights through a ballot measure.
The 1992 Log Cabin Republican convention was held in The Woodlands, Texas, north of Houston.
