The other day we noted that the American Principles Project had informed the American Conservative Union that they would not be participating in next year’s CPAC because of the decision to allow GOProud to serve as a sponsor.
Today, APP’s Malia Blom went on CBN News to explain that they would not participate so long as CPAC was going to include groups like GOProud to who “actively work against a fundamental principle of conservatism: faith, family, traditional marriage”:
And the APP is not alone in pressuring CPAC to drop GOProud, as both the American Family Association and the Family Research Council weighing in as well:
The American Family Association is also deciding whether to stay away from CPAC again this year over GOProud.
“We didn’t send our radio talk show hosts up there last year because of GOProud,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon. “We will have to look at their level of participation this year. In the next couple of weeks we’ll decide.”
The Family Research Council is working with ACU directly about the GOProud issue.
“We have communicated privately with the board with the desire to see this resolved in a way that benefits America’s families,” Family Research Council vice president for communications JP Duffy told WND.
