Unfortunately military bias is not what they're giving up for Lent

by Jeremy Hooper

This from HRC's Michael Cole:

Tomorrow the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) kicks off in Washington DC and some of the right-wingers involved are coming together to argue against a repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law that denies patriotic Americans the ability to openly serve their country.

Among those participating will be:

-Elaine Donnelly, President, Center for Military Readiness (you may remember her for a, shall we say, lackluster performance before the U.S. House last year)

-Tom Minnery, Vice President, Public Policy, Focus on the Family (he praised Donnelly for that Congressional testimony, saying that ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ was “last gasp of sanity that keeps sexual tension away from men’s barracks and women’s barracks”)

-Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council (he says ending the failed policy would “sacrifice real lives” in order to score political points)

-Frank Gaffney, President, Center for Security Policy (he says repeal of DADT would “mortally damage” our armed forces)

We just hope the CPAC co-sponsors at GOProud will stand up to this dehumanizing attack against basic fairness.

But then again, we've never sponsored a conference alongside some of our community's most overheated organized opposition. We don't really know the protocol for that sort of thing.
