Be Careful When People Use the Label “Conservative”

[CPAC’s “conservatism” is not conservatism but libertarianism or (more accurately, based on those whom they allow to exhibit and speak) sodomitic, atheistic libertinism! – AQ moderator Tom]

Gloria.TV News – 2/15/18

The annual “Conservative Political Action Conference” banned the pro-family organization MassResistance from having an exhibition table. At the same time, the Conference allowed the Log Cabin Republicans who advocate for homosexualism to be Exhibitors. MassResistance is run by Brian Camenker, who is a hero for standing up to homosexual activists over the last 25 years. In 2015 Jamila Bey became the first atheist activist to address the Conference. In other words: Be careful when people use the label “conservative”.

    Top U.S. conservative event CPAC bans pro-family group, approves pro-LGBTQUEERs [and atheists]
    /
    WASHINGTON, DC, February 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) abruptly rescinded its acceptance of pro-family group MassResistance as an exhibitor at its annual national meeting next week while permitting the pro-LGBT group, Log Cabin Republicans, to remain.
    /
    In a stinging statement issued by MassResistance in response to CPAC “banning” the group, founder Brian Camenker asked, “Is the ‘Conservative Political Action Conference’ really conservative?”
    /
    CPAC had officially approved MassResistance for a table in January, but last week CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider notified the organization that it had been disinvited. CPAC justified its decision citing the group’s Biblical approach to fighting the culture war — particularly the transgender agenda in public schools — as described in a 2015 speech by MassResistance president Brian Camenker.
    /
    With the departure of MassResistance from the exhibitor’s hall roster, no exclusively pro-family, pro-marriage groups were to be present at CPAC.
    /
    “For the past three years — including this year — the radical homosexual group Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) has been a sponsor and exhibitor at CPAC,” explained Camenker. “Prior to that, another homosexual group called GOProud was an official exhibitor in 2009 and 2010.”
    /
    “LCR pushes hard to homosexualize the Republican Party and have LGBT officials and judges appointed,” continued Camenker. “They fight for LGBT ‘anti-discrimination’ laws that are used to punish Christian businesses. They’ve pushed hard to force open homosexuality – and recently transgenders – into the U.S. military. They placed an ad in USA Today to strongly denounce the 2016 GOP platform committee for supporting traditional marriage. They brag that they are ‘creating change.’”
    /
    It’s not only the presence of pro-gay and transgender groups at CPAC that worries the MassResistance founder.
    /
    “In 2016 and 2017 the group Atheist Voter had a table at CPAC,” said Camenker. “In 2015, its parent organization, American Atheists, was granted a main stage speech. The group pushes for God-less government policies, removal of ‘Christian ideology’ from all government, repeal of religious exemptions from onerous LGBT laws, and more reporting requirements on churches. They also support the LGBT agenda, abortion ‘rights,’ and are ‘fighting abstinence-only until marriage sex education.’”
    /
    “It is unconscionable that a self-styled conservative organization like CPAC would ban a sponsorship table for a leading pro-family group like MassResistance––while allowing the homosexual activist Log Cabin Republicans to sponsor a table at the same conference,” said Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) in a statement to LifeSiteNews. Interestingly, the precursor of AFTAH was launched at a CPAC gathering 25 years ago.
    /
    “This is upside-down,” continued LaBarbera. “It is Log Cabin Republicans, which crusades for homosexual ‘marriage,’ that is undermining conservatism. I call on CPAC and its CEO Matt Schlapp to reverse this awful decision.”
    /
    LaBarbera said Brian Camenker, the veteran social conservative who runs MassResistance, is a “brave, pro-family hero.”
    /
    “Brian has been fighting the radical gay and transgender agenda for decades, and has never wavered. He certainly deserves better than to have his good name sullied and his group expelled by CPAC.”
    /
    “CPAC needs to stop pandering to LGBTQ advocates and make this right. Banning pro-moral voices is a tactic of the Left, not the Right,” he added.
    /
    After MassResistance publicized its ouster from CPAC, AFTAH immediately submitted a request for a booth at CPAC. CPAC’s decision is still pending.

    CPAC: ‘Don’t confuse eligibility with policy views’
    /
    Asked if CPAC has become less socially conservative and more libertarian in its outlook, CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider assured LifeSiteNews that “CPAC is more socially conservative in its point of view than ever.”
    /
    “The American Conservative Union (ACU) — CPAC’s parent organization — is over fifty years old,” said Schneider. “I don’t know if there have ever been more pro-life, pro-family social conservatives” than our founders, and our leaders today as well.
    /
    Schneider warned observers not to “confuse exhibitor eligibility requirements with ACU’s policy views.”
    /
    “There are organizations we are closely aligned with philosophically but which don’t necessarily meet all our eligibility requirements” for representation in our exhibitors hall, according to Schneider.
    /
    Schneider indicated that CPAC had deemed some of the language used by MassResistance in the past as “insulting and disrespectful” when speaking about the LGBT community. “Groups which would use similar language about other minority groups would be disallowed as well.”
    /
    When pressed about whether or not someone wandering through the CPAC exhibitor’s hall would come away with the impression that it promotes a more libertarian than social-conservative ideology, Schneider pointed to the presence of groups like the Heritage Foundation, Americans United for Life (AUL), the American Principles Project, and — late entry — the Family Research Council, all of which will have booths.
    /
    While those groups are undoubtedly socially conservative, they are not as focused against the “gay agenda” as MassResistance, and tend to be more academic in their stances and less likely to use the language of the grassroots in their argumentation and educational efforts.
    /
    Asked if he is happy with the Log Cabin Republicans’ continued presence at the upcoming CPAC gathering, Schneider replied, “If they meet our eligibility requirements, they are fine.”
    /
    Lingering Question: What is CPAC and where is it going?
    /
    The annual CPAC event in Washington, DC has been a very big deal for conservatives since its inception, attracting thousands of conservative-minded people from across the country each year. It’s where Republican candidates and other major conservative political figures come to speak and be seen – everyone, from Presidents Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump; Conservative Senators like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio; and media icons such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin.
    /
    Sponsored by the American Conservative Union (ACU), the annual conference has been an important presence in Washington since 1973. According to its website, ACU has served for more than fifty years “as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense.”
    /
    Yet focusing on traditional marriage and family structures — the bedrock of social conservative values —seems to have less of a presence in the CPAC agenda, while LGBT ideology is perhaps finding a firmer foothold.
    /
    MassResistance’s Camenker says that CPAC’s self-description is “deceiving.”
    /
    “Similar to the direction of the GOP establishment, in recent years CPAC has become more libertarian-oriented and pro-LGBT – and hardly any pro-family groups have had exhibits or been sponsors. This seems to mesh with the attendees: approximately half are 18-24, and clearly products of modern culture.”
    /
    “Is this really what conservatism in America has become?” wonders Camenker. “What group gets to claim it defines conservatism? Is MassResistance the only pro-family group that’s publicly standing up to the powerful sexual-radical movement?”

  2. [Speaking of denial by a well-known “conservative” organization of advocacy of the family as a “natural and fundamental group unit of society, entitled to protection by society and the state”, here’s another denial of the same by another well-known organization (also influenced by sodomites, atheists and libertines), which brings to mind a meme of an authentically conservative organization: “Get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US!”]

    UN Commission refuses to say the family is ‘entitled to protection by society and the state’
    /
    NEW YORK, February 15, 2018 (C-Fam via LifeSiteNews) – Even on the seventieth anniversary year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Commission on Social Development did not refer to the family as “natural and fundamental group unit of society, entitled to protection by society and the state” at its annual session this week.
    /
    Following the Universal Declaration, the phrase has been repeated in every UN human rights treaty since 1948. Pressure from the LGBT lobby and their supporters at UN headquarters has led the Commission to limit references only to “families” in the plural in its main resolution, and without the Universal Declaration’s signature phrase.
    /
    It is not an isolated incident either. UN agreements increasingly call for “family-oriented” policies without any clarity on what constitutes a family. They do not even refer to “the family” as distinct from other “households” as the General Assembly has done in the 2030 Agenda.
    /
    The UN bureaucracy has already exploited this ambiguity to promote all manner of LGBT family policies, including homosexual marriage.
    /
    Just this week, Daniela Bas, a top official of the UN Secretariat, attempted to sabotage an event at UN headquarters organized by Poland and Hungary to promote family-polices. The two socially conservative countries took a moderate position and did not promote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, knowing it alienates progressive Europeans and UN bureaucrats.
    /
    Bas did not reciprocate their courtesy.
    /
    “Families is not just ‘the family’ as we consider it traditionally to be,” Bas said after arriving late at the event. “When we think of family we also have to enlarge our definition of family,” she added, saying that family just means “community.”
    /
    Bas said this even though she acknowledged being told that family diversity was “not the focus of the meeting.” She left after her statement without taking questions.
    /
    The UN Secretariat has been exploiting this backsliding for decades.
    /
    In the 1990s, UN agreements began to refer to family “diversity,” away from the natural family, composed of a man and a woman and their biological offspring, which international law affords singular protections no other social group is entitled to right.
    /
    Promoters of diversity say that so long as international law and policy reserves a special place for the natural family, it discriminates against all other family structures and homosexual relations. This has been the position of European nations, some Latin American countries, and the United States under the administrations of both Obama and, to the surprise of many of his social conservative supporters, Trump.
    /
    Defenders of the natural family point out that protections singularly reserved for the family in international law may be extended to family structures analogous or deriving from the natural family, such as adoptive families, single-parent homes, or multi-generational families, but not to homosexual relations, because only the natural family is entitled to such protections, and not just any communal living arrangement.
    /
    Language about diversity has been blocked by socially conservative nations in UN agreements. And the language of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been blocked by socially progressive nations.
    /
    The outcome of this year’s Commission, including the first ever reference to sexual and reproductive health in its main resolution, may be chalked up to the left-leaning views of the chairman responsible for the final text, but backsliding on the family in UN policy has been in the works for decades.
    /
    So long as socially conservative nations are appeased by compromise and ambiguity the retreat will continue, and the UN bureaucracy will exploit it. On the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the time to stand up for the family is now.

  3. CPAC is about as culturally “pure” as Ann Coulter, a prot celebrity with a big stake in not offending sods. With a majority of NO neo-Kathlyx expressing that they’re OK with sods, too, CPAC and celebs are not going to worry about what the Church actually teaches, especially since 2013.
    /
    Ka-ching! Ka-ching! $$$$$

  4. In general, Protestant moral theology is a bit different (from Catholic) so it would not be that surprising that they might take a different position on something like anal sex. Which Protestant organization would they appeal to for an authoritative teaching? Perhaps Presbyterians have a different attitude on this. Catholics have lost more money with dioceses going bankrupt from queer antics. Politics is a numbers game so it may not be realistic to expect the CPAC, the GOP, or Annie Oakley to present a consistent ethical position on the controversy that would satisfy all Christians.

    Nice caricature though. An animated cartoon film would probably work. The Flintstones did a pretty job with Ann-Margret. Maybe the poster artist should look into it.

  5. Certain political figures and celebrities are natural artistic subjects for cartoons and caricature, in both positive and negative ways.







    Although the sex controversies cannot be resolved directly through politics, the opportunities for satire are preferable to liberal media control of political debates and discussion. If we actually had a Monty Python’s Flying Circus in the U.S. now they would clean up.



    Al Franken should return to comedy and speak at CPAC as Stuart Smalley.

  6. Ann professes the prot line. I haven’t quite given up on her eventual entry into the Church. She and Laura Ingraham are friends and Ann’s late father was Catholic.
    /
    By my estimate, her writing alone has earned her at least a few $million and in that world you don’t do anything that would keep readers away, such as being open about the diabolical pathologies sods are prone to contract. Or, even more factually, refer to sodomite as diabolical narcissists.
    /
    Which explains why Ann Coulter lives in Manhattan and her equally talented writing counterpart, Ann Barnhardt, lives in a camper.
