USA: New Group of Young Conservatives Pushes Marriage Equality

Joshua NassA new group of conservative youth are pushing the GOP to embrace marriage equality.

Queerty reports:

Voices of Conservative Youth thinks that its pro-marriage equality stance will help convince young voters that the GOP isn’t a hopeless case. “The thesis of our organization is that young people are not liberal,” Josh Nass, a Brandeis student and founder of the group, told Buzzfeed. “They vote for Democrats but that is not a function of their genuine political philosophy. And that’s not their fault, it’s ours. The party and the leadership has given them no attention, has done nothing in terms of outreach, and we’re going to change that.” One way to change that is to break with the Republican ideology on marriage equality. Nass said he is aware of the risks involved of bucking the party line.

Think the next generation can drag the GOP into the 21st century?
