Jerry Falwell Jr. has joined the call to ban GOProud from co-sponsoring the wingnut confab CPAC-2010 and has cosigned a letter threatening to pull out of the event if the dirty homos are allowed to appear.
A pro-family leader says organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference are engaging in “moral surrender” by allowing a Republican homosexual activist group to co-sponsor the prestigious event. Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver have sent a letter to American Conservative Union chairman David Keene, warning him they will boycott CPAC 2010 if the homosexual activist group GOProud is allowed to remain as a co-sponsor of the February event. The letter, which was signed by other conservative Christian leaders, asks Keene to respond by 5:00 p.m. today. Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, was one of the first social conservative leaders to sign the letter. He believes CPAC’s embrace of GOProud is symptomatic of a broader problem — what he calls the “dumbing down of the pro-family stand in the public policy arena.”
