    Gay Conservative: Boycott CPAC until they accept gays

    Quote Originally Posted by The Blaze
    TheBlaze TV’s S.E. Cupp on Tuesday announced she is pulling out of CPAC until the annual conservative gathering welcomes GOP groups that support gay marriage. Two prominent groups representing gay Republicans, GOProud and Log Cabin Republicans, will reportedly not be in attendance at CPAC.

    “I go to CPAC every year. I love speaking there. It’s a great opportunity for conservatives, young and old from all over the world, to get together and sort of touch base,” Cupp said on MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”

    CPAC has reportedly permitted groups advocating for gay marriage to attend, however, they are unable to sponsor the event. Cupp said that is a bit of a “cop-out” on the issue.

    “We should be lucky to be having these guys do any work instead of turning them away. I don’t think we can afford that right now,” she said.”

    “Ive been thinking about this a lot, and I know a lot of people on my side of the aisle have been struggling with this for some time now too,” she added. “I’ve been scheduled to speak at CPAC this year, and I don’t think I can until this issue is reconciled and figured out.”

    Gay Conservative... lol, those exist? Why would you be part of a movement that hates your guts?

    Hope it works out for you. Try not to get beaten/stabbed/shot to death. I'm serious, your "allies" are nuts.

    Yes, gay conservatives exist; it was mostly the Log Cabin Republicans that helped me to realize that there are more important things than sexuality

    Why would you be part of a movement that hates your guts?
    That is an intolerant blanket statement and incorrect point of view. I'd rather hang out with a gay conservative than in any manner be associated with a straight liberal.

    Because its not the entire group that "hates their guts". Also, they're gay, but maybe they support ALL OF THE OTHER THINGS THE GOP STANDS FOR. I support gays, but conservative and republican leaning.

    Based off of your logic, if you're against 1 thing, then you need to be against the other hundred things they stand for. Silly Joe.

    Wait, you mean all gay people don't think exactly the same about every single thing in their lives and in this world?
    Wow !!!!!!!!!!!

    Gotta go and ponder this one.

    Of course gay conservatives exist...they are the smart ones... You know, the ones that believe the government should stay the hell out of their business... Makes more sense than being a gay liberal....

    Gays calling their group "Log Cabin" Republicans? I'm not sure why that gets my adolescent humor going. "Want to visit my 'log cabin' this weekend?" Yep, I'm 12.

    This is 2 very poor trolling posts in the last day or so. You really need to try harder.

    I heard there we black members in the GOP as well. Also some atheists. I can't understand why they wouldn't favor EVERYTHING the liberals believe in.

    Yeah, that group that got the ban on gays in the military over turned, those guys. If you havent noticed, there is a power strugle in the GOP between the Libertarians and the religious conservatives. Its Rubio/Santorum vs Rand Paul.

    Politics are personal. I have some gay conservative friends, but I can tell you we NEVER talk politics. I do not understand those in the LGBT community who support a party that denies basic rights. I agree with Joe. JD, if you agree with 100 parts of an organizations platform but the 101st item disregards your rights to be who you are, how can you continue to support them? It's not an accident that so conservatives who support anti-gay legislation then get busted with their pants down. If you support conservative values, lifestyle, etc., fine but if they don't support you, why wouldn't you then support actual FREEDOM to be whoever you are? You don't have to support "liberal" values to understand that liberal values include your right to be whatever you like; the opposite of conservative values.

    Log Cabin Republicans contributed to Dubya's campaigns, both of them. The contribution was returned--both times.

    I heard some latinos are in the GOP as well. Shocking, I know.

    Funny thing I have heard, most blacks agree with the majority of the GOPs platform, but 95% still vote democrat. Wonder why? Maybe buying votes through handouts and pandering really is the way to go. Did you know Blacks have more of a unfavorability towards gays than whites?
