Top Republicans Skipping CPAC After Inclusion of Gay GOP Group

Evangelical Christians show their political influence … One invitation has been followed by a lot of rejection for the Conservative Political Action Conference.

From the Huffington Post

After event organizers decided to allow GOProud, a gay Republican group, to be a “participating organization” for a second straight year, social conservative organizations like the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America decided they wouldn’t be coming out.

Ditto for the Heritage Foundation and the American Family Association. Now, two more leading conservatives have announced they’re going to skip March’s festivities.

“With leading conservatives organizations not participating this year, Senator [Jim] DeMint will not be attending. He hopes to attend a unified CPAC next year,” a spokesman for the South Carolina Republican told CNN.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie also declined an invite, but his spokesman wouldn’t elaborate. “I can only tell you that the governor receives hundreds of speaking and appearance invitations every month, many of which are declined for a number of reasons,” Michael Drewniak told The Star-Ledger via e-mail.

DeMint was listed as an invited speaker on the CPAC website, which currently has confirmations from Haley Barbour, Newt Gingrich, Andrew Breitbart, Ann Coulter, Liz Cheney, Mitch McConnell, and a number of other Governors, Senators and U.S. Representatives.

  1. Only the elimination of all conservative Christians will allow all Americans to be free and the world to no longer have to live in fear of the U.S.A.’s imperialist, terrorist holy war. The conservative ideology has never helped mankind in any way, it has not only never helped mankind in anyway, it has oppressed, murdered, raped and killed all those in it’s way to gain power. History shows us this. Fact shows us this. James Madison, the “Father of the U.S. Constitution”, along with many founders of this country, regardless of their religious or non-religious affiliations, knew keeping politics and religion separate not only preserves each, but helps them flourish: “The number, the industry, and the morality of the Priesthood and the devotion of the people have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the Church and the State.”
