26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1: 26-27 NKJV)
Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is annual event sponsored by the American Conservative Union (ACU). Typically, American Conservatives (who can afford the expenses) flock to the conference like a bee to a honeycomb.
In my opinion this meeting of Conservatives is a boost to people who admire Conservative/Christian/American values. It is a boost in a world in which the Mainstream Media (MSM) and the unfortunately influential entertainment industry crams Leftist propaganda down the throat of Americans. The MSM and entertainment not only disseminate Leftist values but also vilify and discredit traditional Conservative thought as originating from ignorant buffoons who cannot comprehend the Left is transforming our society into a godless paradise to benefit all humanity.
The Left has been propagandizing for decades resulting in moving more and more of the populace to the Leftist way of thinking in Law and Moral Relativist culture.
AND NOW even CPAC is being brainwashed against common sense Conservative values in preserving culture. CPAC is accepting as valid politically correct criticism of Biblical Morality and of Counterjihadists warning of the dangers Islam represents to Western cultural concepts of Natural Rights, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
I found it shameful that promoters of Biblical Morality in Peter LaBarbera and the Mass Resistance organization’s Brian Camenker were banned to not offend Gay Conservatives.
I ran across a post by Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) expressing his disappoint with CPAC validating homosexuals who call themselves Conservatives as legitimate while delegitimizing Biblical Morality Conservatives. In LaBarbera’s post provides a link to a Cliff Kincaid (of America’s Survival) interview with LaBarbera over this CPAC immoral decision on an AFTAH post from 2/26/18:

The American Conservative Union, the sponsor of CPAC, is working to normalize homosexual activity and destroy the winning Reagan coalition of social, economic, and foreign policy conservatives. The effect will be to marginalize and isolate traditional conservatives and drive millions of Christians out of the Republican Party.

CPAC Shows American Conservatism Is Rapidly Going Pro-Homosexual

Note from Peter LaBarbera:
Dear AFTAH Readers,
Anyone who know me knows that I’m a Cause guy, and a Truth guy. And the “cause” which I humbly believe I am called to defend is God’s Truth about the sin of homosexuality and the insidious, “out-and-proud” LGBTQ movement that demands celebration of it. Now I am deeply saddened to report that American “conservatism” is going pro-homosexual at the expense of truth and wholesome morality. (Is Christianity next?)
Last week (Feb. 21-24), I attended the annual Conservative Political Action Conference CPAC. What I saw there and experienced in the lead-up to CPAC is that libertarians (or liberal-tarians, as my friend Ryan Sorba calls them) are moving ahead steadily in their attempt to re-define conservatism to condone homosexuality, including so-called “gay marriage.” They want to turn the Republican Party into a version of the pro-homosexual-“marriage” Conservative party in the U.K. And they are moving RAPIDLY towards that goal.
As you can see from the recent AFTAH press release reprinted below, both AFTAH and MassResistance were prevented from having a simple, paid Exhibitor’s table at CPAC. Just a few years ago, CPAC faced criticism for inviting “gay” sponsors and speakers; now they are banning solid pro-family conservatives who dare to confront Big LGBTQ. Meanwhile, CPAC allowed the homosexual-transgender activist group Log Cabin Republicans to have an Exhibitor’s table at the popular conservative gathering.
As the pressure builds to downplay or ignore the “gay” issue, millions of conservatives like you and me who have usually voted Republican now face a choice: are we going to side publicly with God or cave in to morally-bankrupt libertarianism? Will YOU keep standing for the Truth about biblical sexual morality, or find a way to cop out of this critical battle? Will you fight for the soul of the GOP?
At CPAC, the beautiful Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland just outside the Beltway was teeming with young conservatives. I suddenly felt old as I saw in their vitality and idealism myself 30 or so years ago. In fact, I launched my “Lambda Report on Homosexuality” newsletter monitoring the “gay” agenda, the precursor of American For Truth, the with much zeal at CPAC 25 years ago.
But the great crisis today–something about which I fear most young conservatives are ignorant–is that their precious idealism has been corrupted by a capitulation to a worldly LGBTQ revolution, which is the most extreme branch of the larger, destructive Sexual Revolution. An LGBT Queer Revolution that says “gender” doesn’t matter, nor does it matter if a young man dates a woman or another man! (“Love is love,” goes the inane slogan.)
Of course it matters. It matters to God, who does not give a pass to Republican immorality just because it has an “R” attached to it. It matters to His Son, Jesus Christ–who has turned around the lives of many men and women who, in their sin and deep confusion, thought it was their (inborn) destiny to be “gay,” or “trans.” [See AFTAH’s wonderful and compelling 2017 banquet videos featuring EX-“gay” Christian Stephen Black, founder of First Stone Ministries and a Board Member of Restored Hope Network.]
Truth always matters. So shame on CPAC for what it did to my good friend, Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, who is a genuine hero for his many years of fighting, with indomitable fortitude and without compromise, against all efforts to mainstream perversion. If there were any justice in the “conservative’ movement, Brian would have been invited to give a seminar at CPAC on the lessons he has learned fighting the nefarious Sin Movement that calls itself “gay” (and now “transgender”).
But instead of being honored, and given an opportunity to pass on his wisdom to a new generation who desperately needs it, Camenker and MR were banned and then smeared by CPAC – the same CPAC that last year invited as speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, who joked on his “Dangerous Faggot” college speaking tour about preferring to be sodomized by black men. (CPAC dropped Milo after he defended sex between men and boys; Milo himself was the boy victim of a pederast priest.)
The reality is that even in Trump’s America, telling the truth about homosexualism and that “dirtiest” word of all–the M-word (Morality)–often earns you contempt, or derision, or hostile and puzzled responses even from family members and loved ones. Nevertheless, before God, and with Him as our main and enduring Ally, we must persist and never apologize for defending God’s gift of sexuality in the HEALTHY bounds of marriage between a man and a woman:
[Jesus] answered, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female?” (Matthew 19:4 ESV)
In the end, it’s God’s Truth, not ours, so it’s not man’s to redefine.
In the scheme of things, the sad story that I witnessed firsthand of CPAC’s downward moral trajectory is the story of fallen man: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” (Proverbs 14:12 ESV)
Thank the Lord that we can rise above the culture and its politically correct lies by trusting in God and His Inerrant Word, the Bible, and using our liberty while we still have it to fight harder for that Truth than thousands of LGBTQ activists do for their evolving web of lies. May God bless you richly as you stay strong in the fight!
Sincerely in Christ,
Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH)

About Americans for Truth About Homosexuality and AFTAH Founder Peter LaBarbera
Peter LaBarbera, 55, is president of Americans For Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH), a non-partisan, non-profit group dedicated to exposing the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agendas. Founded as a part-time venture in 1996 but reorganized in August 2006, AFTAH seeks to apply the same single-minded determination to opposing the radical homosexual agenda and standing for God-ordained sexuality and the natural family as countless homosexual groups do in promoting their harmful agenda.
AFTAH is a rare single-issue national group on the other side of this critical “culture war” issue. Meanwhile, there are over a dozen national American “gay” groups with annual budgets ranging from just under $1 million to over $30 million working to advance this agenda — which threatens to criminalize Christian opposition to behavior that most Americans believe is wrong.
LaBarbera and Americans For Truth are often accused by homosexual militants of being “obsessed” about homosexuality (and LaBarbera has been falsely accused of being a repressed homosexual more times than he can remember), but he points to the many LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) organizations that are well-financed and focused like a laser beam on normalizing homosexuality in the culture. … READ THE REST
