One of several hats I wear is that of Iowa Communications Director for American Principles Project and American Principles in Action.  I am thankful that APP is taking a strong stand for social conservatism by refusing to attend this year’s CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) because of their endorsement of GOProud, a gay conservative group trying to make inroads within the Republican Party and conservative circles.  Below is an open letter from Frank Cannon, President of American Principles Project, to David Keene, chairman of American Conservative Union (who hosts CPAC).

As a result of the pressure that APP and several other social conservative groups has brought to bear on CPAC by threatening to drop out, their board of directors is voting on whether or not to allow GOProud to participate again this year.  I hope they do vote to revoke their invitation.  Their message is inconsistent with conservatism as a whole.

  1. umm…..there are over 30,000,000 gay folks in this country….we allow obese people, tall people, Jewish people, white people, black people, Etc. to attend CPAC – why are you choosing this one group of normal Americans who might hold some conservative views – they just happen to be gay, like lot’s of people’s friends and family members are – gay people are everywhere and they’re usually really nice and fun to hang out with –

    I don’t think APP stands for conservative values of limited, non-intrusive government because they want to have government intervene in matters of imposing your private morality on everyone.

    1. I didn’t know there were groups organized for tall people’ s rights. I think you are mistaken. Tall people aren’t asking for special rights. It is you who wants to make private immorality publicly recognized.
