Gay conservative group GOProud closing its doors
American Thinker ^ | June 4, 2014 | Rick Moran

The current leadership sounds hopeful about continuing the organization under a different name with a different mission, but, as the Advocate explains, that's probably unrealistic.

Bilerico reporter Andrew Markle initially reported that GOProud was shuttering on Sunday, and following initial denials on social media from members of the group, key organizers confirmed to Bilerico founder Bil Browning Monday that the group is indeed planning to close up shop.

GOProud executive director Matthew Bechstein told Browning that the mixed messages were an attempt to calm members and stave off any problems with fundraising efforts.

Nevertheless, "We're leaving GOProud behind and re-branding the chapters," Bechstein told Bilerico.

They were pretty much hated by both ends of the spectrum/rectum.

There is nothing “conservative” about a group that engages in identity politics. That is what the RATS do. If you are a real conservative, then you do not go about identifying yourself based on sexual behavor.

Not too likely, that is what their whole life revolves around and give them meaning.

Without the perversion and depravity, what would they be?

So, which is it -- they will no longer pretend to be Republican, or they will no longer pretend that homosexuality is something to be proud about?

Yep. With the ascendency of the Romney Republican Party, they were redundant.

That was a popular saying in the late 1960s or early 1970s, or both of course.

I’m pretty sure that was the timeline.

"Proud" ... that term the sodomites use still cracks me up. What an odd thing to express pride in ... especially when they're doing it wrong.
