Gay Republicans split

A dissident faction of gay conservatives is launching a rival group to the traditional voice of gay Republicans: the Log Cabin Republicans.

GOPROUD, the new 527 group, will launch next week, according to a media advisory. The contact given for the group is Christopher Barron, a former Log Cabin political director who broke with the group.

"Essentially, there's no voice for gay Republicans or gay conservatives in particular in D.C. right now. Log Cabin has been completely and totally absent here in D.C. for months and months," Barron said.

"It has simply moved way too far to the left and is basically indistinguishable from any other gay left organization."

Looks like some of the dividing issues are on hate crimes legislation and marriage.

RNC Chairman Michael Steele has come a long way by saying that being gay isn't a choice.
