Alexander Hornaday, spokesman for the Colorado Log Cabin Republicans, said the group was invited to participate in the summit at a discount rate by the Center Right Coalition. The Western Conservative Summit this week refunded their $250 fee and informed the group it couldn’t attend “as a partner, exhibitor or advertiser.”
The Western Conservative Summit Chairman and Institute director John Andrews said Wednesday the Log Cabin Republicans “advocate contrary to our agenda and our core beliefs.” Andrews has decided to uninvited a gay GOP group to set up a table at the Denver event.
“The Log Cabin Republicans exists to redefine the family,” he said. “Log Cabin Republicans think gay marriage should be the law of the land, and Colorado Christian University doesn’t believe it should be.”
Andrews told Log Cabin Republicans that their “worldview and policy agenda are fundamentally at odds with what Colorado Christian University stands for, so it’s just not a fit. I’m sorry it has to be that way.”
Log Cabin Republican members have been told they can still purchase tickets and attend the summit, scheduled for June 26- 28 at the Colorado Convention Center.
Needless to say, a lot of possible attendees are not happy with this decision.
The Western Conservative Summit, is a gathering of some of the most influential newsmakers on the right.
