The reason the Montana Republican Party still states in its official platform, under the "Crime" section, that members "support the clear will of the people of Montana expressed by legislation to keep homosexual acts illegal"? Because it's a holdover from 1997, when the Montana Supreme Court struck down anti-sodomy laws and the GOP reacted quickly to register its displeasure, and then found itself annually re-committing to excluding gay voters. Removing the language has never come up for discussion, says Montana GOP executive director Bowen Greenwood (seen here in a photo that does not depict him cruising in a public park), who ran for a seat in the State House and lost. So it's remained as is.
