CPAC Chair: GOProud Taunted Our Board Members

Gay conservative group GOProud was too aggressive for CPAC chairman Al Cardenas, he says in a new interview with Human Events:

Cardenas Reviewing the recent national CPAC, Cardenas addressed the controversy surrounding participation [with a booth in the exhibit hall] by the Republican gay group GOProud.  He feels “the problem is that GOProud didn’t help us any in being inclusive, because they used that platform to be quite aggressive [outside CPAC].  They started taunting some of our board members.”

“The ideal GOProud participation would have been, ‘You know what, guys?  This is an inclusive society.  We’re as interested in these fiscal issues as you are.  Fill your website with fiscal issues that you’re for and be a mainstream discusser of issues.  We just happen to have a different lifestyle.’  And if they’d done that, they would have laid the groundwork for things that would have been pretty good.’”
