Michelangelo Signorile interviewed Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly this weekend at CPAC.
“The gays have their argument about inevitability,” the 90-year-old author of 25 books told me in an interview for SiriusXM Progress at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, over the weekend, during a book-signing including her new book, Who Killed the American Family? “I don’t think that’s so,” Schlafly continued with a smile, rejecting the “inevitability” argument. “I’m extremely disappointed that the Republican Party, the conservative movement, even the Democratic Party and the churches, have been saying, ‘Well soon the court will decide, and that will be it.’ Well, a lot of people thought that about Roe v. Wade, and we’ve seen the whole abortion movement turned around in the last ten years.” Schlafly has sloughed off the fact that even her own son is gay. (John Schlafly was revealed to be gay in the gay press back in the early ’90s and confirmed the reports, but defended his mother and continued working for her.) She’d explained that her son “supports me in everything I do,” including fighting what she views as the dangers of “the gay agenda.”
