Gay Republican Woman Fighting for Marriage Equality

And She is Still a Republican – What is She Thinking?

Some stories really need no commentary, their weirdness just speaks for itself.  So without further comment here are the lead paragraphs from NYT story on how gay Republican women are operating inside the party that considers gay men and women to be an abomination on society and who should be sent to jail.

In 1996, Kathryn Lehman was a soon-to-be married lawyer working for Republicans in the House of Representatives. One of her major accomplishments: helping to write the law that bans federal recognition of same-sex marriages.

Today, Ms. Lehman, 53, no longer has a husband, and is no longer straight. And she is a lobbyist for Freedom to Marry, which is devoted to overturning the very law she helped write, the Defense of Marriage Act.

But Ms. Lehman is still a fervent Republican.
