"Media Research Center Pres. Brent Bozell today denounced the CPAC conference, saying 'no conservative should have anything to do with this conference' because it is giving voice to groups, such as American Atheists, that attack conservative principles," CNSNews.com reports.
Here is Bozell's complete statement, as reported by CNSNews.com:
The invitations extended by the ACU, Al Cardenas and CPAC to American Atheists to have a booth is more than an attack on conservative principles. It is an attack on God Himself.
American Atheists is an organization devoted to the hatred of God. How on earth could CPAC, or the ACU and its board of directors, and Al Cardenas condone such an atrocity?
It makes absolutely no difference to me that CPAC and ACU have backed down and removed the booth. I am sick and tired of these games. I will continue to denounce CPAC, ACU and Cardenas.
No conservative should have anything to do with this conference. If you do, you are giving oxygen to an organization destroying the conservative movement.
"The GOP's dilemma," and apparently the conservative movement's dilemma, "is that it is double-minded," as I have noted elsewhere.
"On one side, some embrace a secular vision that sees the Creator of the Founders and of the Declaration as a kind of nice 'religious' touch or 'values' touch. But also in the GOP are those who show an appreciation of the connection between a real Creator and real freedom in the real world.
"What the New Resistance senses is that neither the single-minded secularism of the Democrats nor the double-minded imbalance of the Republicans is an adequate foundation for freedom, whether we are talking about July 1776, March 2010 or 100 years from now."
