CPAC And Gay Republicans


Posted on : 2/24/2010 12:05:00 PM | By : Dann | In : , , , ,

Megan McArdle has a brief story about Ryan Sorba's brief rant condemning CPAC for inviting GOProud; a group of openly gay conservatives.  Mr. Sorba has issues with homosexuality.  Megan indicated that he was booed off stage and suggests that this modest amount of progress is worth noting.

So I went looking for video or audio only to find a much longer story over at Hot Air.  With video....

Now CPAC is a self limiting sample.  There has been an "open tent" trend towards ignoring social issues in favor of the more broadly supported fiscal issues.  However I'm not saying that the GOP is liable to adopt a platform position in favor of gay marriage anytime soon.

But you have to admit that you normally wouldn't have expected a room full of self described conservatives to [largely] boo someone off the stage for suggesting that homosexuality is wrong.  Right?

An earlier look at the issue may be found here.
