chapter of the conservative Eagle Forum, has stated that she pressed
for anti-gay language in the Texas Republican Party platform because

Texas GOP, worked to keep language in the platform stating that
“homosexuality tears at the fabric of society” and add language
endorsing therapies aimed at turning gay people straight.

In the end, she won only half the
battle, with party delegates removing the “fabric of society”
language and adding the “ex-gay” therapy endorsement.

response to its reporting on her crusade.
In response to a commeter opposed to

and, “When sin is flouted it cannot be ignored,” and “I love
you! And want the BEST for you now and in eternity.”
