A couple weeks ago, the American Family Association protested CPAC’s inclusion of GOProud – a gay conservative group – as a CPAC 2010 sponsor. They may say they don’t hate homosexuals, but the AFA rhetoric makes it pretty clear that they don’t want gay people around.

A spokesman for the American Family Association says a Republican homosexual activist group doesn’t belong at a popular conservative political conference in February. … “The bottom line is that homosexuality is not a conservative value,” Fischer states emphatically.

Unsurprisingly, WorldNetDaily is leaping to participate in the bigotry, saying that “A viral alarm [is] spreading among conservatives that the American Conservative Union is accepting homosexual sponsorship for its annual Conservative Political Action Conference…” and adding “Campaign launched to reject support from homosexuals”. AFA Action is demanding other conservative organizations oppose GOProud participation at CPAC, saying “groups that promote the normalization of homosexual behavior should be resisted without reserve or compromise by any genuinely conservative organization.”
