Here is the video of Bishop Harry Jackson of Maryland complaining about the inclusion of GOProud in CPAC. Personally, I think that as gay rights become more of a mainstream issue (rather than just Democrat or Republican) we will start to see those in the social conservative movement do what he is doing: claiming the mantel of victim hood, and stating that THEY are the ones who are being "thrown under the bus".
My response: Mr. Jackson - these social conservative organizations that have boycotted CPAC did it of their own volition, they "threw themselves under the bus". Since when has the inclusion of another group like GOProud mean that CPAC has started to vilify the Religious Right? For too long the social conservative have been able to have their view go unchallenged in conservatism. Then, once there is animosity or a challenge to their views, it is automatically deemed "persecution".
My message to the social conservatives - If you cant have open and honest debate about the subject, and can only survive as long as your opponents are silenced, you know that you are fighting a losing battle.
