    The Republicans in this story support gay marriage so presumably, they support liberty.

    Just curious why nobody actually reads what they're posting about. The people who are trying to attend the event are Republicans who support gay marriage and gay rights.

    It's still stupid.

    But then I am a Christian who supports gay marriage.

    None of them read the story before posting, or bothered to look at the players in the story.

    And they were kicked out. By conservatives. Now can you own up to that? Or will the inevitable defensiveness begin?

    IMO, there's no real harm in them having a booth.... even if they disagree on a specific issue.

    a "big tent" can exist while members of that "big tent' are opposed to each other on certain issues.... every party, especially the 2 majors parties, have their camps that are opposed to the agendas of other camps within the party.( you think Benrie sander attends many pro-business or conservative democrat events ? )

    I suspect atheists Republicans wouldn't be welcome as such an event either.... but certainly welcome at "party-wide" events, such as CPAC ( atheists did make a showing at CPAC, btw)
    I'm sure atheist Republicans wouldn't be welcome either, as you say.

    I've attended and also run many animal rights and animal rescue conventions and events. If a local slaughterhouse or a fur salon wanted to have a booth, we wouldn't have accepted their money, either. And I turned down more than a few pet stores and pet store chains through the years too. Organizers tend to want the exhibitors and vendors to be aligned with the purpose of the event. Reading the website on this conservative group, it's pretty apparent that they don't support gay rights, so why would they want the Log Cabin group there? Not surprising at all.

    They weren't kicked out of anything. Can you be a little more dramatic? They wanted to have a booth, tried to sign up for one, and the organizers didn't want them to have a booth so they didn't take their money. Nobody got "kicked out" of anything.

    And? It's their convention. What's there to defend?

    This is why the conservative Republicans and the GOP will have a problem in 2016. It's their way or the highway. If someone or some group isn't 100% ideologically pure they don't want anything to do with you. Of course the problem with that is most aren't 100% pure.
