The Texas GOP adopted a 40-page platform at its biennial convention in Houston over the weekend that pushes the party even further to the right.
Even John Cornyn, Ted Cruz and Dan Crenshaw came under fire for not being “conservative” enough from some at event. In addition to pushing Trump’s “Big Lie” with its declaration that Joe Biden’s election as president was “illegitimate” and declaring that homosexuality as an “abnormal lifestyle” while “oppos[ing] all efforts to validate transgender identity,” the party platform goes even further off the rails by calling for a referendum in 2023 on Texas seceding from the U.S.
In its section on “Homosexuality and Gender Issues,” the platform declares that Texas GOP is against giving “special legal status to gay men or women” and supports people who oppose homosexuality based on faith, religion or a belief in “traditional values.” The platform also opposes the use of public funds for homosexuality, transgender or diversity and equity inclusion centers as well as for gender-affirming care but supports so-called “conversion therapy” for LGBTQ people.
