The whole idea of "conservative gays" bothers because its still rooted in a morally bankrupt, lifestyle choice. But then I'm not a Republican and for the GOP does embracing right-leaning gays help the cause? I guess so. Then too it's interesting to see a smug liberal host get taken apart by a "gay conservative" for refusing to toe the line or something like that:
This was a great segment and honestly I was proud to be in Barron’s corner. While I disagree with his lifestyle choices, I thought he did a great job defending both the Republican Party and the conservative movement against Cenk’s accusations – especially that the Republican Party ‘doesn’t like him’.
Rush has tried to make this point over and over, that conservatives are much more tolerant than are liberals. You remember how much flack Elton John got from the Left for singing at Rush’s wedding. It’s just par for the course with the Left and we’ve seen it over and over.
Look, as long as someone from GOProud is ok with me disagreeing with their lifestyle choices and perhaps even their gay agenda (if they have one), then I don’t have a problem going to CPAC. I’m certainly not going to try and humiliate them like Ryan Sorba from last year, but I’m not going to pass out pamphlets for them either. But if an organization wants to boycott, that’s ok too. I’m sympathetic to them but I’m not sure I agree with them.
