CPAC Boots GOProud

Specifically, new ACU President Al Cardenas has announced that CPAC will screen sponsoring groups for next year's event. See David Weigel, "CPAC Will Prohibit Pro-Gay Marriage, Anti-DADT Sponsors in 2012." Also, at Towleroad, "CPAC Chair Al Cardenas: GOProud Can Come to CPAC, But They Must Drop Support for All Gay Rights Measures":

Says Cardenas:
"It's got nothing to do with your orientation. It's got to do with the principles that you advocate. There are a number of gays in America who don't advocate gays in the military issue or gay marriage. And so they'll fit within the tent of what we stand for...It's not that easy. It's complicated. But we'll do our best to be inclusive while at the same time adhering to the principles that Ronald Reagan dreamed about and we've been following."
Personally, I'm glad. And perhaps they'll screen pro-pedophile conservatives as well. A number of folks were practically tongue-bathing Alex Knepper, but hey, lots of political correctness is raging on the right these days, so what the heck. Wouldn't want to offend supporters of CHILF-lusting Bieber fans.

This is a very smart move. I never planned on posting about the GoProud controversy until that whats-his-name head of GoProud shot off his mouth criticizing conservatives.

I really expected all sorts of hate comments after that post and it never happened.

Will CPAC also be screening out the Muslim Brotherhood, La Raza and the Nation of Islam and their supporters/apologists? I'm far more concerned about jihadists than gays.
