(Continued from page 1) discussed his findings as detailed in his best- selling book, A Separate Creation, about the gay gene (maintaining the theory that ''we are homosexual due to genetic make-up"). Burr, who was eloquently introduced by Texas' Log Cabin President Dale Carpenter, enthralled the crowded luncheon with his presentation of his research concluding that homosexuality is not learned behavior, rather it is genetically pre-disposed. Burr attributed the controversy surrounding his findings to an innate fear from the gay community as to what affect his research will have in terms of consequentiality (If they know what causes it, they might do something to stop it). The Saturday evening banquet featuring Rep. Steve Gunderson (R-WI) and his life partner Rob Morris was filmed live by C-Span. Gunderson and Morris delivered the keynote address together with clever repartee and insightful anecdotes. Promoting their book, house and home, the couple demonstrated their compassion and commitment to each other in spite of their different political affiliations. Gunderson, who is not running for re-election, is a highly respected member ofthe House Republican Conference who has been an outspoken advocate on the virtues of tolerance. Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ), who just recently came out, also visited with LCR members during an impromptu reception in the lobby ofthe convention site hotel. Rep. Tom Campbell (R-CA) addressed the LCR conventioneers at the Sunday luncheon to explain ^OOBrazo, COMMERCIAL MEMBER st°n (713) 52s fj if It t 5* , l» <M -I, /Sunday, August 18, 8ym CrystaC Rae Lee Love, RSICSS presents The Grand Cle Cpr>| benefiting Colt 45's Stone Soup Monrfay Aff Day All Night Tuesday $1.00 Domestic Longnecks Ail Day-Ail Night Drinfc Special's tiff 9pm Wednesday $1.75 Domestic Longnecks All Day-All Night Drink Special's tiff 9pm Thursday Drink Speciafs tiff 11pm Fricfay Buffet at 5pm Drink Speciafs tiff 9pm Saturday Drink Speciafs tiff 9pm Sunday Drink Speciafs tiff 5pm ~~i 'f""f"l 'f""f'"J" '""V':"^TT H-. Come On Down and Dance Your Boots Off his op-ed piece in the Los Angeles Times in defense of DOMA. Campbell, who has a good voting record on gay and lesbian civil rights, argued that not supporting DOMA would be inconsistent with his belief that the federal government should not impose their agenda on individual states. He reiterated his support for the» rights of gays and lesbians to get marrie^P however, he believes that decision should be belong to the states. He followed his prepared remarks with a question and answer session that was informative and provided the group with thought provoking fodder. The LCR convention closed Monday morning with a prayer breakfast featuring Ihe incomparable Rev. Mel White whose protests against the religious right are effective and legendary and have earned him the distinction of being one of their biggest nemesis'. One ofthe main goals of this convention was to determine whether or not to endorse Bob Dole for president. Alter lengthy debate on the matter, the organizations Endorsement Committee recommended that a decision be postponed until after the Republican National Convention concludes. The group approved the recommendation, thereby delaying their position^ on the mailer to a later date. The decision to dclafB came after raucous debate among members ofthe organization as to whether or not the Dole/Kemp ticket was deserving of our endorsement. "As a United States Senator, Bob Dole has had a nondiscrimination policy in his office insuring fair treatment for his gay staff, supported legislation for people with AIDS, such as Ihe Americans with Disabilities Act and the Ryan White Care Act," informed the LCR press release. "Much to our frustration. Bob Dole as a presidential candidate has repeatedly compromised, retreated or reversed himself under pressure from the extreme right," added the statement. "Therefore, Log Cabin Republicans will consider an endorsement of llie Dole/Kemp ticket following ihe Republican National Convention. We urge Bob Dole and Jack Kemp to make clear exactly where gay and lesbian Americans fit into their vision for America in the next four years," said Log Cabin. Following the press release and announcement of the groups decision, the Dole camp responded. "The Dole campaign would welcome the endorsement of Log Cabin Republicans as a sign that they too share the same beliefs as Bob Dole. Bob Dole has always held the belief that the GOP is an inclusive party," said Dole campaign spokesperson Christina Martin. "...We see this as a beginning step in opening a dialogue with the Dole Campaign and the Republican Party. We are encouraged by this historic development," responded David Greer, LCR Communications. Whether or not the aforementioned will earn the ticket an endorsement remains to be seen. What was evident throughout the LCR national convention is that there are many gay Republicans who are determined to challenge the religious right's dominance within the party apparatus. Republican candidates are starting to seek the support of the gay conservative lobby and their influence is gaining during the process, albeit gradually. Hundreds of gay Republicans descended upon this beautiful city to participate in the political process and coincidentally broughtjA thousands of dollars of revenue to San Diego™ They lobbied delegates, offered commentary to Ihe media at will, and worked diligently to dispel any negative stereotypes that may be associated with gays and lesbians. In fact.'they have done so with aplomb and effectiveness. At press time, the Christian Action Network's President Martin Mawyer challenged Log Cabin Republican Executive Director Rich Tafel lo a debate, which he accepted. The debate took place last Tuesday at 2pm at the U.S. Grant Hotel and was televised for broadcast at a later date. Curt Morrison, a member of Log Cabin Houston, is in San Diego covering the Log Cabin and Republican Party National Conventions. Next week he will report on the Republican National Convention.
