News release from Log Cabin Republicans:
Washington, D.C. — Following the fallout from a recent interview in which Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson criticized gay Americans while citing his religious beliefs, and the Robertson family’s subsequent statement suggesting his suspension from the show could end their relationship with A&E, Log Cabin Republicans has suggested mediating this dispute with a “Moonshine Summit”.
“Let’s put an end to all of the fussing and feuding and talk about this like adults,” Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo stated. “Phil, you have your views and we have ours, but I think you’d be surprised how much we all have in common, and there’s no better gay folk out there to make that case than Log Cabin Republicans. We’re conservative, we’re guided by our faith, and we believe in freedom of speech. Most important, we are all children of God; that’s the most important thing we have in common. So in the spirit of the season, let’s get together — your family and ours — raise a glass, and work this out.”
Log Cabin Republicans is the nation’s largest Republican organization representing gay and lesbian conservatives and allies. The more than 30-year old organization has state and local Chapters nationwide — including a Chapter in Louisiana — a full-time office in Washington, DC, a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
