Letter: Can pro-science, pro-equality person still be a Republican?

To the editor:

It’s hard to know what the Republican Party stands for these days. Given the turmoil in Washington it appears that Republicans themselves don’t know.

My question is this: If I am pro-science, pro-higher education and believe that all people should be treated equally regardless of their religion, sexual orientation or national heritage, can I still be a Republican?
