AL GOP Seeks to Oust College Republicans Head Over Support for Gay Marriage

The stupid party never disappoints


Senior members of the Alabama Republican Party are trying to kick a 23-year-old college Republican off their steering committee after she told a local news site that same-sex marriage was reasonable because "we're governed by the constitution and not the Bible."

Stephanie Petelos, who chairs the College Republicans Federation of Alabama, made the comments to in June shortly after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage in June. The state party's chair, Bill Armistead, had called decision "an affront to the Christian principles that this nation was founded on."
