Gay Group In, Values Groups Out at CPAC

Friday, January 7, 2011


Social and economic conservatives have worked together under the mantle of the Republican Party since Ronald Reagan made them the core of his 1980 coalition, but the alliance may now be fraying.

Some of the nation’s most prominent social conservatives are sending a message to their economic brethren by dropping out of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in response to the decision to include GOProud, a gay conservative group, as a participating organization.

“The base-line reason is that homosexuality is not a conservative value,” said Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association’s director of issue analysis. “It’s the conservative PAC, not the libertarian PAC.”

Sponsored by the American Conservative Union (ACU), the CPAC gathering traditionally has been a marquee event on the conservative political calendar. This year’s conference is scheduled to run Feb. 10 to 12 in Washington and will feature leading Republican presidential contenders Haley Barbour, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and John Thune.

    It would have been better if you had been hot or cold but because you were lukewarm I will spew you out of my mouth. Revelations

  • rimshot75

    Abominable behavior has no place in the public square. These folks want to carry on like wild animals in their own backyard, fine. But not in public office and not in the military; and certainly not as leaders.

      I thought sodomy was outlawed or did they bring it back?
      The morals of this country and world has gone to hell.

  • Bob

    There can be no association or compromise with evil, and homosexuality is evil. The GOP is about to screw up again by trying to build a “big tent” party that includes socially liberal degenerates. I would rather see the GOP disapear as a party than to see it become just a right-wing version of the scumocrats.

    • rexroi

      God created homosexuality. If you don’t like it, take it up with Him.

    • Dave

      God did not create SIN. HOMOSEXUALITY is a NAMED SIN. Your attitude is disgraceful.

      How dare you even think you will EVER be able to “take” anything up with HIM?!?

      Your blanket statement blaming God for sin shows just how LOST you really are…

      You can take that statement of yours up with your little lord, Satan.

    • http://x Patty

      Conservatives DO NOT support gay values. We are a big tent,but not for immorality. We are principled and moral and ethical. Gays are small in number with big voices. Why do we give them so much attention? They need to change their morals,not the other way around.

  • GeeBee

    Fiscal Conservatism without Social Conservatism is unbridled utilitarianism. Without Social Conservatism, a Fiscal Conservative would farm human embryos to sprinkle on salads. And hard core porn? Hey, for a Fiscal Conservative, it’s a good business. Pedophile prostitution? Makes good Fiscal sense!

    C’mon you guys! Fiscal conservatism without Social Conservatism is Nazism.

  • Russ Wickstrom

    If CPAC want to make themselves irrelevant, that is their choice. True conservatives will NOT stand for this!

  • FirstSeaLord

    I couldn’t care less about the Gay/Straight orientation of individuals or the morality questions as long as they shut up. What bugs me and most people is the same thing as with Muslims. The minority keep pushing their radical agendas in our faces, and the majority sit back, silently, and do nothing. It only serves to tick most people off. Enough is enough.

    • rexroi

      If blacks had just “shut up,” they would never have achieved equality. (Somehow, I think most of the people who read and respond to the drivel here would like that.)

  • http://None Rick

    A shocking revelation. Republicans who have
    been and are staunch conservatives, are now
    giving in and joining Obama in his quest to
    corrupt not only the military forces with
    DADT but now within the party itself. Abama
    has used the military to carry out his social
    experiment of change (that nobody wants)
    to screw up the morale and welfare of those
    in uniform. Republicans will hear plenty
    about this issue and they are smart, they
    should revoke this action. Its sick.

    • Frankie

      Republicans dropping like flies! Rather than stand against the Gays they just back off and give in to them.
      If you don’t stand (up) for something, then you don’t stand for anything!!
      I am so disappointed that the Republicans did not stand up against immorality.
      Just like the gays….no balls!

  • Tim Singleton

    I will withdraw from CPAC.

    I will not approve of, nor tolerate, nor insinuate approval or toleraince of by my silence, homosexuality.

  • Gunny Walton

    This is one reason I not longer belong to the Republican Party and will not rejoin. Further, I will not consider giving to CPAC or to the national Rep. party. RINO’s simply don’t get it! If they don’t stand for something (real values) they will fall for anything. This is a good beginning to losing 2012. The social conservative vote is far larger than the gay vote and although they will not go to the Dems, many will simply not vote unless they really believe in who they are voting for! A really stupid move RINOs!

  • Am2sweet

    I would never have put the words gay and conservative in the same sentence. Is there Really a gay conservative? How can someone be both when conservative used to mean “opposed to change” and “cautious”. Seems that most words no longer have the samae meaning anymore.

  • Dean

    To hell with the homos!

    • rexroi

      Hmm. You seem like such an angry boy. Don’t know of any humans who can damn anyone else to hell. And why would God damn gays when it was He Himself who created them?

    • emerutil

      You are sick! Just be glad the Judeo-Christian God is not like Allah!!


    “Gay” is a nice euphemism for a perverted homosexual. What actually makes them “Gay?”The fact that they practice abnormal sexual gratification? If you don’t condone their mental aberration, they place a label on you, e.g. “Homophobic”… “Phobia” means “fear”, “Homo-repulsed” would be a far better description. A vote to include this group would be reason to exclude the member who cast the vote. I guess there are people who would sell their souls for political gain, similar to Congress accepting the likes of Barney Frank dancing with his male “partner” at Bill Clinton’s inaugural Ball. I guess “Shame” and “Honor” are lost values..Adios my America!

    • rexroi

      C’mon, Dick. Homosexuals do not choose to be so; they were born gay. To deny rights to gays is to deny rights to people who are what they are through no fault of their own. You are repulsed by homosexuality. So? People used to be scared of left-handers, thinking the devil controlled them. These ignorant souls either got over it or died out. Homophobia will fade, too, thank God. So says this Christian.

    • emerutil

      YOU a christian? Fagots are and always will be an abomination to God!!

  • sean murrey

    i dont give any money to CPAC i am glad to hear the orgazations i belong to pulled out this crap.We dont nedd any faggots in there.

    • rexroi

      Faggots? Really? You must truly hate yourself.

    • sean murrey

      i do like myself it is you faggots that hate yourselfs.

  • sean murrey

    i am glad to see the organizations i belong to pulling out of cpac we dont need faggots.

  • Eddie B

    Let TRUTH,HONOR and DIGNITY RULE….NO EXCEPTIONS….Love the person but NEVER EVER approve of homosexuality!

  • jr



  • Patriotic Veteran

    If the Republican leadership wants to truly win during the next 2012 elections, they had better listen to their base constituency, and return to conservative social, economic, and moral values which strengthen and prosper both mankind and our country.

  • Bob

    Seems gays aren’t going to be happy until they ruin everything! They aleady ruined education and are doing a good job with the churches. Now the government. Probably an indicator we are closer to the “end times”.

  • Ron Schansema

    It is a crying shame that the CPAC is deciding to lower its self to letting Morally challenged homosexuals join their organization. When will people start to realize that Homosexuals are not normal thinking people, they are weak minded and give in to Satan’s temptations.
    They do not belong in a conservative organization, there is no such thing as a Christian Homosexual either, they will try to put all kinds of labels on themselves to be accepted.
    God forgive those that are giving in to these wicked and weak minded sinners.

    Pray in the Lord Jesus to help take back this land of his and cleanse it from all sin and sinners.

  • RJJ

    Screaming in silence is the fact that there is no word in this article from GAYProud. Did anyone consider interviewing one or two of their most masculine conservative specie? If they had any respect for themselves and realize the calamity they are creating, their #1 should make a statement of sacrifice and GAYProud should withdraw from the conference, not everyone else.
    Judging by their silence I will make my own judgement. They are not Gay Republicans, they are just gay and on a Soros mission of infiltration and destruction and enjoying the ride. I’d say kick em in the ass but they probably would like it.

  • Ed

    This is why we need Mike Huckabee as President 2012. Huckabee and the fair tax.

  • wake up call…….

    I have nothing against the gays,I just think we should send them all to san franisico and then fumigate the entire city.barney the queen franks should swim the everglades with a dead chicken around his neck for one week and then we can go from there.has pelosi bought a new jet yet,what no tax dollars for a new pelosi jet?she will find another way to steal from the American tax base and obama will still look to take us down with the help of scum like soros.America,its time to wake up and I mean now.Will any elected offical force obama to show his birth certificate?

    • rexroi

      Always with the birth certificate. Obama is an American. Kills you, doesn’t it?

    • emerutil

      I only believe that the Deceiver-in-Chief is not a natural born US citizen!

  • rhurt

    It is a matter of keeping consistent; God, traditional family, and Country. You break one out of those three and you get caos. Look at how the Dems shamelessly cry about inconsistences now. If these Gays really care about the country-then they should keep their sexual preference private. As I recall there is respect about keeping your sexual activities quiet and private for both that of the indivual, and the partner. The respect for this country should-at the very least-be to provide the unity needed to maintain our freedoms as a nation-beyond our personal choices. It is time to call these Gays on their patriotism and to remind them of keeping the peace and unity within the Republican Party; regardless of the sacrifice needed to supress their public choice of sexual preference.

  • CJM

    Not being a homosexual, but knowing a few people who are, I can say that they are fine citizens who work just as hard as any heterosexual person. Both have their own traditions and values, they simply differ on who their life-partner will be. I have read many posts that claim the homosexual flaunts his/her orientation of preference; how does that differ with the heterosexual who flaunts their own preference in public even moreso than the other? Neither of the flaunting individuals is serving mankind to any degree, but show just how self-serving an individual may become. Some of the greatest men and women in history were homosexual; and we have all benefitted from their contributions. Quit acting as if this were the only problems confronting us; look at the things that matter. If one believes those who differ are an abomination to our Creator, sobeit, but that is between them and the Creator. There have been many brave souls who gave their lives for this country who happen to be homosexual–you just weren’t aware of it.

    • Conchita

      What about the gay parades? Dressed up, or undressed, in all kinds of garb, including religous dress, just to insult, and the “males” marching down San Francisco’s Market Street dressed only in shining red little pieces of clothing passing for shorts. What contributions are they benefiting us with? What kind of values they have?

    • Gene

      Yeah, well, the past is passed–in order to
      make the future better, we must learn from
      the past; “fine homosexuals” are NOT fine
      representatives of the electorate–they are
      fine examples of moral decadence

    • rexroi

      Bravo, and well said. Too bad most of the readers here are too blind to see the common sense logic of your comments.

    • sean murrey

      i wouldnt agrue with an idiot like you.

  • Sherman (like the Tank)

    I learned something very valuable this last election. I am not a Republican, I am a conservative. Now realizing this fine point, I will not hesitate to vote against anyone (regardless of their party) that disagrees with the conservative beliefs.
    Republicans or Democrats who support the Gay agenda, beware!

    • rexroi

      The gay agenda: equal rights for gay American citizens. Not scary, unless you aren’t sure about your own sexuality. How about it, Sherm?

  • Art

    This is just continuing evidence that the old Republican party is becoming increasingly moot. They have no credibility at all and after this CPAC and GoProud and Log Cabin stuff, they continue to blame Michael Steele for their financial failures. Absolutely NO money to CPAC or the GOP and I will vote against the so called Republicans that supported the repeal of DADT, increased pork to keep our tax rates where they were last year (see Not Raising Taxes) and those that supported the ill conceived START treaty. There will be no need for a third party candidate after the current GOP fails completely, the Tea Party will be the second party of a 2 party system.

    One study reports 70% of homosexuals admitting to having sex only one time with over 50% of their partners (3).
    One study reports that the average homosexual has between 20 and 106 partners per year (6). The average heterosexual has 8 partners in a lifetime.
    Many homosexual sexual encounters occur while drunk, high on drugs, or in an orgy setting (7).
    Many homosexuals don’t pay heed to warnings of their lifestyles: “Knowledge of health guidelines was quite high, but this knowledge had no relation to sexual behavior” (16).
    Homosexuals got homosexuality removed from the list of mental illnesses in the early 70s by storming the annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) conference on successive years. “Guerrilla theater tactics and more straight-forward shouting matches characterized their presence” (2). Since homosexuality has been removed from the APA list of mental illnesses, so has pedophilia (except when the adult feels “subjective distress”) (27).
    Homosexuals account for 3-4% of all gonorrhea cases, 60% of all syphilis cases, and 17% of all hospital admissions (other than for STDs) in the United States (5). They make up only 1-2% of the population.
    Homosexuals live unhealthy lifestyles, and have historically accounted for the bulk of syphilis, gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, the “gay bowel syndrome” (which attacks the intestinal tract), tuberculosis and cytomegalovirus (27).
    73% of psychiatrists say homosexuals are less happy than the average person, and of those psychiatrists, 70% say that the unhappiness is NOT due to social stigmatization (13).
    25-33% of homosexuals and lesbians are alcoholics (11).
    Of homosexuals questioned in one study reports that 43% admit to 500 or more partners in a lifetime, 28% admit to 1000 or more in a lifetime, and of these people, 79% say that half of those partners are total strangers, and 70% of those sexual contacts are one night stands (or, as one homosexual admits in the film “The Castro”, one minute stands) (3). Also, it is a favorite past-time of many homosexuals to go to “cruisy areas” and have anonymous sex.
    78% of homosexuals are affected by STDs (20).

    • rexroi

      Hi, Ray. Me again. You spend an awful lot of time researching gays. Something you want to tell us?

  • Raymond

    Judge John Martaugh, chief magistrate of the New York City Criminal Court has said, “Homosexuals account for half the murders in large cities” (10).
    Captain William Riddle of the Los Angeles Police says, “30,000 sexually abused children in Los Angeles were victims of homosexuals” (10).
    50% of suicides can be attributed to homosexuals (10).
    Dr. Daniel Capron, a practicing psychiatrist, says, “Homosexuality by definition is not healthy and wholesome. The homosexual person, at best, will be unhappier and more unfulfilled than the sexually normal person” (10). For other psychiatrists who believe that homosexuality is wrong, please see National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality.
    It takes approximately $300,000 to take care of each AIDS victim, so thanks to the promiscuous lifestyle of homosexuals, medical insurance rates have been skyrocketing for all of us(10).
    Homosexuals were responsible for spreading AIDS in the United States, and then raised up violent groups like Act Up and Ground Zero to complain about it. Even today, homosexuals account for well over 50% of the AIDS cases in the United States, which is quite a large number considering that they account for only 1-2% of the population.
    Homosexuals account for a disproportionate number of hepatitis cases: 70-80% in San Francisco, 29% in Denver, 66% in New York City, 56% in Toronto, 42% in Montreal, and 26% in Melbourne (8).
    37% of homosexuals engage in sadomasochism, which accounts for many accidental deaths. In San Francisco, classes were held to teach homosexuals how to not kill their partners during sadomasochism (8).
    41% of homosexuals say they have had sex with strangers in public restrooms, 60% say they have had sex with strangers in bathhouses, and 64% of these encounters have involved the use of illegal drugs (8).
    Depending on the city, 39-59% of homosexuals are infected with intestinal parasites like worms, flukes and amoebae, which is common in filthy third world countries (8).

  • Raymond

    Homosexuals prey on children.

    33% of homosexuals ADMIT to minor/adult sex (7).
    There is a notable homosexual group, consisting of thousands of members, known as the North American Man and Boy Love Association ( NAMBLA). This is a child molesting homosexual group whose cry is “SEX BEFORE 8 BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.” This group can be seen marching in most major homosexual parades across the United States.
    Homosexuals commit more than 33% of all reported child molestations in the United States, which, assuming homosexuals make up 2% of the population, means that 1 in 20 homosexuals is a child molestor, while 1 in 490 heterosexuals is a child molestor (19).
    73% of all homosexuals have had sex with boys under 19 years of age (9).
    Many homosexuals admit that they are pedophiles: “The love between men and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality” (22).
    Because homosexuals can’t reproduce naturally, they resort to recruiting children. Homosexuals can be heard chanting “TEN PERCENT IS NOT ENOUGH, RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT” in their homosexual parades. A group called the “Lesbian Avengers” prides itself on trying to recruit young girls. They print “WE RECRUIT” on their literature. Some other homosexuals aren’t as overt about this, but rather try to infiltrate society and get into positions where they will have access to the malleable minds of young children (e.g., the clergy, teachers, Boy Scout leaders, etc.) (8). See the DC Lesbian Avengers web page, and DC Lesbian Avengers Press Release, where they threaten to recruit little boys and girls. Also, see AFA Action Alert.

      Quit quoting lies. Gays practice pedophilia no more than do heteros. These are more of your scare tactics to try to “educate” folks with your gross untruths. You are one sad character. Don’t worry, though…America has survived nuts like Joe McCarthy before, so surviving you and your ilk should be easy.

  • Apatriot

    Raymond I see you post a lot and all are good. Where did you dig up all this info on Gays?

    • rexroi

      He gets his info from the garbage. Don’t believe his lies.
