The press is largely bit picking up this story. Besides PinkNews and other gay papers one report is as follows:

"The Southern Poverty Law Center strongly condemns the possible inclusion of an anti-gay, conversion
therapy plank in the Republican Party platform"

Sheeesh......
Yup, I have been an active member of the GOP and I think these are STUPID issues.

The GOP is becoming NERO. Fiddling while America burns.

On the coal issue, I wonder how many of them, on a cold wintry night, put a few shovelfuls of coal in the fireplace and light it up? It used to be quite common. People rather learned their lesson that coal is not suitable for such a purpose in London, in the 1950s, when lots of people were burning coal in their fireplaces during a cold winter, a 'cap' developed over the city (meaning, the fumes settled over the city instead of dissipating), and several thousand people died (the calamity was not realized until after the event).
Yet coal is a key component of electricity. You know, that source of energy all the progressive Prius drivers feel so "holier than thou" about?

A party's official platform is (for the most part) irrelevant and a joke. Very few people, including many politicians within the party, truly care about party platforms. Most of us wisely just ignore them or laugh at them and then go on about our daily lives.
