Doug Warner is featured in a Reuters story about Gay Republicans coming out of the closet.

 “I believe that the approach of the social extremists eliminates our party’s ability to grow in the future,” he told Reuters by phone from his home in Charleston, South Carolina.

“Somewhere along the way our party was hijacked by the social extremists who say that government needs to regulate things that were once considered private,” said Warner’s partner Truman Smith, who works as a private consultant and is the president of Log Cabin’s South Carolina chapter. “If we believe in lower taxes and less government, what are we going to do? Become Democrats?,” he asked.

Good article. Thanks to Truman for the link. Look for more on the Log Cabin Republicans in next week’s Gay Issue.
