Thoughts on GOProud demotion at CPAC 2011..
CPAC changes sponsorship rules for GOProud
Website reveals 'gay' organization's status now upgraded to 'affiliate'
WASHINGTON – What's "in the closet" at the American Conservative Union?
ACU staffers repeatedly declined to respond to questions about a report that the organization changed the status of GOProud, a homosexual activist organization that claims to be "conservative," for the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference.
CPAC is the largest annual political convention for conservative activists in the United States. The conference is a project of the American Conservative Union, which describes itself as America's "oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization."
GOProud is listed on ACU's website as an "affiliate" for the 2011 CPAC conference. But sources reported GOProud was a "sponsor" last year, a higher status that provides greater influence over conference planning and selection of speakers.

But requests to ACU regarding GOProud's participation level last year, or pending status this year, were not answered.
A receptionist reported to WND that CPAC officials who could comment are "out to lunch" at noon and 2:30, and by 4 p.m. they had "gone home for the day."
It might have something to do with that kid who went on a tirade against them this year.
I think he was later kicked out of YAF... don't know if it had to do with what he said though...
