Georgia Republican compares LGBTQ+ people to poop in brownies

In Chatham County, Georgia, a member of the local Republican Party is wrapping blatant anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination in a blanket of Christian charity with her call to ban LGBTQ+ people from the GOP — and offering an unusual dessert analogy on the side.

“It’s not that we don’t love them. It’s not that we don’t like them. But if you’re going to be part of the Republican Party, you have to support the platform, and the rules and bylaws 100%, not just 80%,” explained local GOP member Sara Lain-Moneymaker, who’s running unopposed to chair the District 5 chapter in her county.

With that in mind, the self-described Reverend is introducing a resolution that lets local Republicans do the thinking for LGBTQ+ people and ban them from the party before they have a choice to agree or not.

She used a novel analogy to serve up her point.

“If I made brownies, and I said, ‘Well, these are 80% brownies and 20% poop,’ you would not eat those brownies.”

Who was offered the brownie/poop treat, or precisely what the ingredients represented was left unsaid.

Either way, it left a bad taste in the mouth of newly elected GOP chairman Brittany Brown, who said Lain-Moneymaker’s resolution violated local chapter bylaws that prohibit discrimination “against age, sex, gender, I mean, all of it,” Brown told the Savannah Morning News.

“I made certain it was all in there, because I knew that this had come up before,” Brown explained, adding she’s “100% against this.”

“While I respect people’s religious beliefs and things like that, we are a political organization and we are a big tent. That is not going to change.”  

It’s not Lain-Moneymaker’s first attempt to foreclose LGBTQ+ participation in Republican politics.

She says she brought the same resolution up for a vote at the March 11 Chatham County GOP convention, but the meeting adjourned before members took a vote.

“They came back with all sorts of arguments: ‘Oh, you’re being discriminatory, blah, blah, blah, blah,'” said Lain-Moneymaker.

“It’s like, no, everybody’s discriminatory. We discriminate against bad food; we discriminate against having pedophiles around our children; we discriminate against drunk drivers, we don’t want them on the roads. So discrimination is not necessarily a bad thing. We’re discriminating against a lifestyle that is in rebellion to God’s laws.”
