Log Cabin Republicans has taken out a full page ad in the New York Times to oppose the nomination of Chuck Hagel as the next secretary of defense:

"Chuck Hagel: Wrong on gay rights, wrong on Iran, wrong on Israel," the ad states.  It references Hagel's opposition to an ambassadorial nominee for being "openly, aggressively gay." 

"Tell President Obama that Chuck Hagel is wrong for Defense Secretary," states the ad. "Help us create a stronger and more inclusive Republican Party."
