|The following is a statement from Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director, Gregory T. Angelo, on the passing of Former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher:
Log Cabin Republicans mourns the loss of Margaret Thatcher, a conservative heroine and a maverick with the ability to convey conservative principles in a way few others could. In a gesture similar to her contemporary Ronald Reagan’s opposition to the Briggs Initiative (which inspired the founding of Log Cabin Republicans), it was Thatcher’s brave move to buck her colleagues and vote to decriminalize homosexuality in the 1960’s that paved the way for modern conservatives such as Prime Minister David Cameron to make the conservative case for marriage equality today.Our prayers go out to the Iron Lady, her family, and the people of the United Kingdom who have lost an unparalleled and irreplaceable leader.To learn more, go to www.LogCabin.org.
