"Of course it doesn't help us. It makes it more difficult to attract gays to the Republican banner. But, I will make this prediction to you: This is the last platform that will have an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment included in it. Four years from now, I'm willing to bet that won't be there."
-- Openly gay, former Republican Congressman Jim Kolbe of Arizona admits to a Buzzfeed reporter that the current party platform debated at the Republican National Convention might be "out of touch" with the cultural mainstream for rejecting not only same-sex marriage, but also civil unions. Then again, there's always hope. I bet in four years, nobody's going to ask to see President Barack Obama's birth certificate either.
