Log Cabin Republicans denied booth at Texas GOP Convention

What did the Texas GOP convey to the Log Cabin Republicans when asked to have a booth at the 2014 Texas GOP Convention?

We affirm that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit.  Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country's founders, and shared by the majority of Texans.  Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable  'alternative' lifestyle, in public policy, nor should "family" be redefined to include homosexual 'couples.'  We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state or origin.  Additionally, we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction or belief in traditional values."
