It seems that hate group Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America have pulled out of the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference because a gay conservative group will be participating. What a shocker…
The feuding on the right continues over the gay conservative group GOProud, with two more social conservative groups announcing that they won’t attend the big Conservative Political Action Conference this February — in part because the gay group is participating.
A few other social conservative organizations — including the National Organization for Marriage, which was at last year’s conference — have also withdrawn from the event.
TPM asked GOProud executive director Jimmy LaSalvia for comment.
“GOProud is excited to once again be a part of the nation’s preeminent gathering of conservatives. We’re going to be there for the second year at the same level we were last year,” said LaSalvia.
I am just so broke up about this. Can’t right-wingers all get along???
