Michigan Republicans Call for Resignation of RNC Official Dave Agema Over Anti-Gay Facebook Post


More than 20 Michigan Republicans are calling for the resignation of Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema over an anti-gay update Agema made to Facebook, the Detroit Free Press reports:

2_agemaAgema’s posting Wednesday, during U.S. Supreme Court oral arguments regarding the legality of same-sex marriage, was based on an online article titled, “Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals,” which appeared under the byline Frank Joseph, M.D.

The post depicts gays as sexually promiscuous, rife with sexually transmitted diseases and responsible for “half the murders in large cities.”

Said the group, in a statement: “This isn’t about what we believe either politically or as women and men of faith. This is about common decency and realizing that you cannot win an election by insulting a wide swath of the electorate, whose votes our Republican Party needs to once again form a national majority.”

Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak is also telling Agema to get out.

  1. In the back rooms Repugs are applauding this with no real concern of the backlash.

  2. How come anti-Gay activists can't seem to not talk like 1950s segregationists?

  5. It's interesting observation I made, that pro-gay people are having something broken inside of them bein uncapable of understanding and embracing the most basic condition of a humanity - being a heterosexual. It's saddening because understanding such simple fact of human identity and integrity is probably one of the most basic notions in human life. That is to say, that homosexuals have no integrity, and no notion being truly human.
