U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen attended the first social event of Miami's new Log Cabin Republicans club, held Sunday at the Miami Shores home of club Vice President Omar Cassola.

Ros-Lehtinen told club members that she is committed to helping defeat Florida's Amendment 2, which if passed in November would ban gay marriages, civil unions and state-recognized domestic partnerships.

how can you respect such a self loathing group as the log cabbin reps... i will pray for you to be released by your repressors.. the republican party. Maybe someday they will accept your financial donations, and your DNA.

I like how the gay dude's house is pink... Geesh... It's one thing to be attracted to the same sex.. it's another to be flamboyant.

another meeting of the admirals in the rear.

WOW How UnBush she looks like for a change

THIS IS SO SAD. ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE IF THEY DON'T REPENT AND CHANGE THEIR WAYS. THEY WILL BE PLACED IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ALL ETERNITY. YES I LOVE ALL PEOPLE, BUT I WILL NEVER SACRIFICE THE TRUTH. THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE. PSALMS 23

Nice photo op for the internet.
Has this been published on the front page of the printed Herald? Probably not--Miami does not have a really inclusive political/social climate. God forbid the paper should be really outspoken for civil rights.

Big crowd, what are there 10 people?..haha! She wants more outreach she should visit, HRC or Miami Gay Lesbian Chamber.

ooooh! Cant wait for the Lake of Fire - is that a new club???

Yeah, the same lake of fire as for the people who eat lobster, wear blended fabrics, and wear make up.

Won't be alone there, for certain

all those bigots and cuban defectors will all be outta business soon. good bye you hipocrates

emphasis on the word Log

Rick Truth Speaker (yeah right) quotes the Bible against gays. Bet he's a hypocrite who eats shrimp, pork and lobster. Bet he rounds the corners of his head. Bet he works on the Sabbath. Bet he doesn't isolate menstruating family members in a separate tent.

And I bet he's really full of sh*t.

I Corinthians 6:9 The wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God. According to God our creator of this earth,homosexuality is wicked. I Corinthians 6:18 Flee from sexual imorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Corthians 6:19 Do you know that your body is a temple of the the Holy Spirti, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. Corthians 6:20 You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. Holy Spirit does not dwell in unclean bodies. Romans 14:10 As surely as I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God. Each of us have to give account to God, including homosexuals and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Homosexuals should not have rights to marry.

There is no such thing as marriage between a man and man or vice versa. You can call it something else, but it will absolutely never, ever be a marriage. It's impossible!

My God, what a bunch of freakazoids. No wonder God sends hurricanes into Florida all the time; she wants to punish all Florida freaks.

Hola Steve,
Great seeing you again at the U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen fund raising party. Its unfortunate that gay democrats are so intolerant and hateful. Gay Democrats cannot see other gay members of our community working for gay rights within the Republican Party. Of course we don't share their hateful Stalinist, Maoist and Castroist totalitarian ideology. Like President Thomas Jefferson insisted by adding the Bill of Rights, we stand for more freedom in the board rooms and the bedrooms, we stand for optimism for having the opportunity to reach our highest potential and not the bigotry of low expectations, class hatred, lack of competition, big government and military defeat that American liberal Democrats, Socialists and Communists are pushing around the World.
