Skip to comments.Gay Republicans draw support, concern at CPAC
Posted on 02/20/2010 12:36:18 PM PST by USALiberty
An unlikely sponsor at this year's annual conservative conference is hoping to not only promote the issues that set it apart from many Republicans, but also draw attention to the beliefs they share.
The group is called GOProud -- a name that combines GOP and gay pride. So far, the group is getting a mixed response at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Thereis no room for such perverts in the coservtive movement.
Political party over conservative principal?
Profits over patriotism?
Profits regardless of consequences?
Compromise values by casting votes for the better evil?
Compromise over principle?
What did that get us?
A party and a united people that fragmented like a grenade, an economy that nosed dived into the ground, and widespread government fraud, betrayal and corruption.
Some folks who swear up and down that they are bastions of conservatism are satisfied with economic conservatism and couldn’t care less about social values reflected in law. It’s similar to the RINO/Republican split. The gays, of course, are alinskying this to the full, because if they can herd the Tea Party, etc. into circular firing squads then they will have Demonrats forever and ever.
They were paying sponsors. Don’t you remember THAT debate?
We were assured this would not happen.
What exactly do gays have to be proud about, just because they’re gay? What does one who sleeps with the same sex have to be proud about? The fact they admit it? Why does that supposed to make one proud? The fact ‘they are ok with themselves’ for the gross and unhealthy stuff they do? Who takes pride in that?
Might I suggest if you feel proud about who you are and what a great person you are, perhaps you’re not looking hard enough, and maybe a just a bit self-centered and your ego is a bit inflated?
Pride goes before a fall. A proud look, the Lord hates.
If the GOP adopts the Gay Agenda of same-sex marriage, ending DADT and other such normalization of homosexuality, the party is rightfully dead!
Adopting liberal policies cost the party a lot in 2006 & 2008.
This just may finish it off.
Now there is a huge voting block the conservatives should seek out. /sarc
onyx just posted this on the other thread about CPAC, I cant format it nicely the way she did, though.
GOProuds Conservative Agenda
The so-called gay agenda is defined by the left through a narrow prism of legislative goals. While hate crimes and employment protections may be worthy goals, there are many other important priorities that receive little attention from the gay community. GOProuds agenda emphasizes conservative and libertarian principles that will improve the daily lives of all Americans, but especially gay and lesbian Americans.
1 - TAX REFORM - Death tax repeal; domestic partner tax equity, and other changes to the tax code that will provide equity for gays and lesbians; cut in the capital gains and corporate tax rates to jump start our economy and create jobs; a fairer, flatter and substantially simpler tax code.
2 - HEALTHCARE REFORM - Free market healthcare reform. Legislation that will allow for the purchase of insurance across state lines - expanding access to domestic partner benefits; emphasizing individual ownership of healthcare insurance - such a shift would prevent discriminatory practices by an employer or the government.
3 - SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM - Bringing basic fairness to the Social Security system through the creation of inheritable personal savings accounts.
4 - DONT ASK, DONT TELL REPEAL - Repeal of the militarys Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy.
5 - HOLDING THE LINE ON SPENDING - Standing up for all tax payers against wasteful and unneccessary spending to protect future generations from the mounting federal debt.
6 - FIGHTING GLOBAL EXTREMISTS - Standing strong against radical regimes who seek to criminalize gays and lesbians.
7 - DEFENDING OUR CONSTITUTION - Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment.
8 - ENCOURAGING COMMUNITY ENTREPRENEURSHIP - Package of free market reforms to encourage and support small businesses and entrepreneurship in the gay community.
9 - REVITALIZING OUR COMMUNITIES - A package of urban related reforms; expanding historic tax preservation credits; support for school choice.
10 - DEFENDING OUR COMMUNITY - Protecting 2nd amendment rights.
More like “PC-PAC”
Well, somebody needs to sit down together and come up with a workable plan to get around the problem. Not even all Christians are going to agree exactly what should go into a “theonomy” and we don’t want to create a second cat fight.
What they do behind closed doors is none of my business. As far as CPAC inviting them, I don't care one way or the other. If GOP Proud or whatever their group is supports less government, I don't have a problem with them.
“GOProud” (pride GOeth before a fall?) can’t appreciate what a morale disaster that anything looser than DADT will be. That isn’t a typo. Yes it would be a “moral” disaster but more practically we are faced with a “morale” disaster. If we force unwilling participants to be in “buggery platoons” this is tantamount to sexually harassing them.
This group is a special interest group. They may be Republican, but they are NOT Conservative, and do not belong a CPAC.
Compromise over principal...The GOP is really good at that.
They walked into the hall with their agenda on their sleeves and stacked like chips on the table.
Read the GOProud’s agenda above, in their own words. You call that less government? Even want to interfere in other countries who are non-”gay” friendly?
The other day somewhere on FR (ha will never find it) a “gay” activist was quotes as being asked “Isn’t there a danger that open homosexuals in the military will weaken it?” The answer was that a weakened military was part of the whole idea.
They WANT a weakened military.
