Joseph Farah takes the Cliff Kincaid route by endorsing Ryan Sorba's anti-gay rant at CPAC in his Feb. 25 WorldNetDaily column: "Sorba rightfully condemned the conference for accepting sponsorship from a group promoting an agenda totally at odds with conservatism – and, more importantly, at odds with Judeo-Christian morality and Western civilization." Farah continued:
Let me remind you what Sorba was condemning – the notion of same-sex marriage.
Same-sex marriage has been overwhelmingly rejected by popular vote everywhere it has been put to the test.
Barack Obama cannot even say he supports same-sex marriage, not because he doesn't, but because it is so politically unpopular.
I would suggest to you that at least 90 percent of Americans reject same-sex marriage.
But "conservatives" don't?
That's just the practical politics side of the equation. Listen to those booing Ryan Sorba and you are headed for political disaster.
There is nothing "conservative" or even libertarian about permitting government to rewrite a 6,000-year-old God-given institution.
It's very disturbing that CPAC leadership would not see that, and equally disturbing that so many young attendees would not understand how they are compromising with the eternal truths "conservatives" should be "conserving."
So it seems that Farah's real problem is that CPAC hates birthers more than it hates gays.
