Something really telling about GOProud, Log Cabin's CPAC shunning
At 4PM on the Conservative Political Action Conference's first day, there will be a panel on inclusive conservatism. Here is the slate:
Wouldn't this be the perfect
Apparently CPAC answers all of my questions with a big, fat, honking "NO!" GOProud is expressly banned again this year, and Log Cabin has said it will not participate (though it's hard to imagine why Log Cabin would even be allowed if GOProud is pointedly uninvited). In its three days of panels and speakers and breakouts, there isn't one scheduled minute of conservative political action time dedicated to building bridges with the LGBT electorate.
The National Organization for Marriage's Jennifer Roback Morse and Robert George will, however, both take turns at a microphone. Focus on the Family, Family Research Council, Liberty University, and countless other anti-LGBT groups will either sponsor or exhibit (or both) at the conference. And, of course, any number of anti-LGBT policy-pushers (Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Allen West, Michelle Bachmann) will attempt to rally the GOP base.
Inclusive? Nope. Not of me, my life, my love, and my family. Or, more importantly for the GOP: My potential vote.
Hostility? Yep. Still. Toward all of the things I mentioned above
