From An Official RNC Survey

John Aravosis parses an official survey from the Republican National Committee that was distributed last week:
Important to note is that the RNC now lists gays along with other groups that are discriminated against, implicitly acknowledging that gay rights are civil rights (another sore point for the religious right). The final question, that’s perhaps the most surprising, is the RNC asking people what their sexual orientation is. While on a Democratic survey you might expect a question about sexual orientation, die-hard GOPers like to claim that no one should be asking anyone what their sexual orientation is since it’s “just a sex practice.” But this survey treats it as far more than a sex practice. Oh, and Dear RNC, “in the closet” is not a sexual orientation. Though I guess in Republican circles, maybe it is
The survey is here.
