CPAC Invited GOProud Back - If They Don't Advocate Gay Rights Issues

Now, if you ever wondered just how deep the amount of self-loathing the GOProud folks have, you will soon know.  Seems CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) who uninvited the allegedly LGBT Republican group has now changed their position.  Now they will welcome the GOPround folks if they will leave their "gay issues" at the door.

To quote CPAC Chairman Al Cardenas:
"It's got nothing to do with your orientation. It's got to do with the principles that you advocate. There are a number of gays in America who don't advocate gays in the military issue or gay marriage. And so they'll fit within the tent of what we stand for...It's not that easy. It's complicated. But we'll do our best to be inclusive while at the same time adhering to the principles that Ronald Reagan dreamed about and we've been following."
 So it basically comes down to the whole "straight acting" thing. Sure you can be gay or lesbian or whatever, as long as you stay quiet and don't actually ask for equal rights.  Imagine asking a black Republican to forgo any mention of Civil Rights or minority issues?  Oh yes, that would be Michael Steel or Alan Keys!

If GOProud accepts the re-invitation, I vote we take away their "gay cards".
