Nikitas3 at RedState explains why "homosexuality is not a conservative agenda item" and therefore why "GOProud should not be embraced by CPAC."
Comment: If American conservatism wishes to be true to the Creator of the Declaration, that entails respecting the Creator's healthy and liberating content for human sexuality and family life.
Unfortunately, the homosexual agenda of GOProud despises this emancipation and therefore by its own choice places itself outside of and against the center of the American experiment.
Homosexual activists are happy to use the terminology of freedom -- "rights," "fairness," "equality," "nondiscrimination," etc. -- but their program rejects the Creator and therefore subverts the meaning and direction of these terms.
"Rights" devolve into mere power, "fairness" becomes homosexual hegemony, "equality" becomes state-imposed same-sex privilege, and "nondiscrimination" becomes state-sponsored aggression against the Creator's norms for social life.
Consistent with the Founding vision, CPAC should be encouraged to remain true to life in community with the Creator and should challenge homosexual activists to do the same.
Any conservatism that rejects the Creator who is the basis of unalienable rights, human freedom, and human dignity is clearly a conservatism not worth conserving. That kind of conservatism would be extremism against the enduring mainstream of the American experiment.
I hope CPAC corrects course. The alternative would be a shame and an unnecessary one at that. Don't let a GOProud moment become a CPAC fall.
