"It’s a fine line as I know several gays who.... ...and do not advertise their sexuality or promote their lifestyle."

So..If they don't advertise it then how do you know they are gay? (Just kidding)

Personally I don't care about what people do in their bedroom. I do care what people are allowed to promote at a supposedly "conservative" conference.

as morally pure

As has been pointed out, it isn't a question of moral purity but a question of allowing degeneracy to act as if it's normal. Conservative means just that, conservative. Pride in perversion is not a conservative idea.

Again, Rome rotted from within. Are you supporting a replay in America?

The writer is a Log Cabin Republican, which is to say a professional fag. So it’s not surprising that he is cheering them on. Here’s his profile from Big Journalism:


Bruce Carroll
Bruce M. Carroll Jr. has been involved in Republican politics since he was 14-years-old, growing in Chester County, Pennsylvania. He credits his Mom for becoming involved in politics and government as she worked for US Congressman Robert S. Walker (ret.) for 20 years.

In addition to active involvement in numerous Pennsylvania Republican grassroots campaigns, Bruce was elected as the youngest borough councilman in the State of Pennsylvania at age 21 in 1992. Bruce worked for the Pennsylvania State Republican Party and PA Senate Senator Earl M. Baker in the early 1990s. Bruce also served as a board member for the Philadelphia chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans in the late 1990s.

During his college years at Syracuse University (1986-90), Bruce was Editorial Page Editor, then Editor In Chief of the award-winning daily newspaper, The Daily Orange.

In September 1994, Bruce launched the very successful gay conservative political blog – GayPatriot.org. GayPatriot was an original member of the PajamasMedia blogger network. GayPatriot receives approximately 100,000 visitors each month and has had over three million unique visitors since its launch. In 2009, Bruce became the Treasurer of the new gay conservative group,
GOProud.org.

Bruce’s professional work experience includes 15 years in healthcare policy and government relations in the biotechnology industry. He currently resides in Charlotte, NC and lives with his partner of 10 years, John, and their three dogs, Saxby, Shadow and Marley. Saxby was named after US Senator Saxby Chambliss after his surprising electoral win in 2002.


Has he ever written anything for Big Journalism before? I hope not. And I hope this is that last time he’s invited to write for them. As I’ve said elsewhere, there’s nothing wrong with gays joining the conservative movement as long as they keep their sex lives to themselves. But we don’t need to have them instructing us about “gay rights,” thank you very much. If Breitbart follows up on this cr*p, it will be another jump the shark moment and a real pity after all that he has done recently.

He just gave a great speech at CPAC, rejecting multiculturalism. That’s right, we don’t need this kind of in-your-face multiculturalism, thanks very much.

I think this needs to be named for what it was: FudgePAC.

If they think we’re going to go along with this, they can go screw themselves. And some of these freaks actually will.

Finally, how was Meghan received there? Must be hard to give a speech with duct tape over her mouth and “End H8” on her face.

However, even though most of the above mentioned that I know are Republican, they all see conservatives as having an irrational view of homosexuality as each of them and functions well in society.

What does "functions well" mean? If staying out of jail and paying taxes is the measure of functioning well than lets take a look at our irrational views of drunks, philanderers, pedophiles, smokers, eaters of fast food, progressives, mimes, and drivers of large SUV's!

My fiance does, and she is quite thrilled about it, wouldn’t want to be getting into a sexless marriage ya know?
Actually I used wrong terminology in my post. I should have said “I am attracted to women” rather than “I have sex with women” as I am not currently married, I am not currently....well, I believe the Bible.

“They are 2% of the population. They ought not let the door hit them...well, where they’d like it. Butt seriously, you apparantly believe that it is perfectly fine for a group to form under the auspices of “conservatism” in order to push a militant gay agenda.”

If they are just 2% of the population, how is it they could attempt to push their agenda?

Did the gays at CPAC attempt to push Gay Marriage?

Did the gays at CPAC attempt to push Gay Adoption?

Did it occur to you that well educated gays with high incomes and no children may have the very same economic and tax concerns as other conservatives?

Oh, so these gays that were at CPAC believe in State’s Rights and oppose the Federal Government dictating how states must define marriage?

I love the irony!

For good reason. It would have been detrimental to your apparant world view that it is perfectly conservative for one man to place his penis into the sh*t canal of another man, call it love and expect society to accept it.

To: All

It would appear to trumandogz that Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment is conservative, we need to stop fighting for traditional marriage and welcome these fudgepackers with open arms!

Just don’t turn your back on them.

There is nothing “libertarian” about the sodomite movement or the CPAC controversy. The real source has been that conservatives have given their children to the government schools to be indoctrinated into accepting the sodomites’ lifestyle. Now we are surprised that young people can’t see anything wrong with it.

Exactly, for every “conservative” pushing the homosexual agenda that enters the tent, 5 to 10 social conservatives will leave the tent.

Let the perahps 1/2 of 1% fo the population that are “gay conservatives” decide whether to prioritize their views on the homosexual agenda or their views on low taxes, small government, freedom, national security, etc..

When you are a tiny minority, with very unusual views, you shouldn’t expect the majority to go along with your odd views. You either go along with the majority, depsite your differences, or go it alone.

The problem is that the college age kids have been educated to “celebrate” the sodomite lifestyle in government schools. We have collaborated in this deformation of their worldview by sending our children to be “educated” by the government school establishment. Ron Paul has nothing to do with this. Paul advocates reversal of Lawrence...which other “respectable” candidate has said this? We are to blame, along with the generations before who bought into the government education lie.

Gay marriage is the dumbest term that I've ever heard. Two of the same kind cannot "mate". They can only simulate the sexual act. Gender confusion is an mental illness. It should not be affirmed as normal.

And you are still a liberal troll.

So you are on board with the kiddie gay sex clubs in the pulic schools and teaching kids K-12 that it is fine, dandy, healthy and wonderful to do what homsexuals do to one another? It’s alright with you if we permit activist homosexuals to redefine marriage and family in their own image and likeness? That is the homosexual agenda. To social engineer society around their sexual morals, beliefs and behaviors and to put everyone else in the closet who does not agree with them.

Gays can do whatever they want to one another - they are free. But the gay agenda is to impose their idenity upon the society with speical rights. Their idenity is derived from their sexual behaviors - all inclusive. Anyone who does not think it is a great idea to spread that sermon across the land and social engineer according to the wackiest homosexual sexual appitites, will be shouted down as bigots. This is where you are?

How are the “conservative” homos different from the bunch who are self centered extremists? There is no difference.
