Earlier this week we noted how Sen. John Cornyn was coming under attack from the Family Research Council, which was upset that he will be attending a fund-raising event from the Log Cabin Republicans where he will also be receiving an award.
It looks like the outrage among the Religious Right is spreading, as Cornyn is now getting hammered by the American Family Association as well:
Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, said Cornyn’s decision was inexplicable, given the fact that the senator has supported Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and traditional marriage in the past–and that the Log Cabin Republicans are far from mainstream.
“I don’t buy it, I don’t understand it and I think he’s making a big mistake,” he told CNSNews.com.
“Would he (Cornyn) go speak to a group that was for a 90 percent federal income tax and say, ‘You know, we need to respect their opinions, and I need to speak to them?’” Wildmon asked.
“If it were a fiscal issue in which they were way out of line with the base of the Republican Party, I really don’t think Sen. Cornyn would go speak to that group,” Wildmon said … “You’re talking about men having sex with men–that’s what you’re promoting when you go there,” Wildmon said. “These people are for same-sex marriage. They’re fundamentally opposed to the core of the Republican Party on that one.”
Wildmon also said Cornyn should know that he has angered pro-family conservative Republicans to placate homosexual activists.
“This is an affront to pro-family conservatives who make up a large percentage of the Republican Party to appease – I don’t know who,” Wildmon told CNSNews.com.
Of course, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise to find that the AFA is upset that Cornyn would meet with a gay group considering that they are one of the most militantly hostile anti-gay groups in existence today and daily give a platform to Bryan Fischer to equate gays with terrorists.
