CPAC Was a Milestone Weekend for Gays?

Anti-Gay CPAC Speaker Booed Off The Stage

Just when it looks like this country can’t get any more divided, there comes a tiny glimmer of hope. At CPAC, California Young Americans for Freedom’s Ryan Sorba launched into a denunciation of the conference for inviting GOProud, and as he railed against gays, he was roundly BOOED off the stage.

  • Of course he was booed off the stage. They weren't there to discuss sex. There are a lot more important things going on right now.

  • Besides this what else happened? Did I miss something? Not trying to rain on the parade or anything. I just don't see how this helps, that guy is a nut anyway.

  • I'm glad that whoever was watching for gay-bashing saw that it is NOT a part of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

    Conservatives are often accused of being "gay-bashers" because they disagree with gay activists about things like gay "life style" education in grades as young as Kindergarten, or changing the legal definition of marriage (because of concern for additional new arrangements such as polygamy).

    But the fundamental principle of Conservatives is personal, individual LIBERTY, so this accusation is misdirected.

    There ARE some Conservatives who are also of a religious or moral persuasion, who DO oppose homosexuality. But if they resort to gay-BASHING, then they have immediately abandoned their claim to be Conservatives. Again, Conservative = personal liberty.
