Nor do I care. Focus, please.
    Ah. Never mind that I'm comparing an apple with a much bigger and more influential apple...'cause they're both apples.

    Face it, TB - the example of CPAC's similarities to that Colorado university's convention apply. You just don't want to admit it because it puts the conservative conventions in a bad light.

    CPAC=Conservative Political Action Conference

    CPAC is a political conference. This is a Christian university hosting a conference for Christians to showcase Christian matters. So no, Glen, as much as you want to tie them together, you can't. You're trying to equate a Christian conference with a political conference because it makes for good partisan theater. It doesn't work that way.

    Here's a quote from the event organizers regarding the Log Cabin Republicans:

    " 'We'd love to have them attend the summit and be in the discussion. But we have to draw the line at a formal relationship between two organizations with diametrically opposed policy beliefs,' Andrews said."

    Allowing them to have a booth would be like allowing the KKK to have a booth at an event sponsored by the NAACP simply because both groups are Democrats

    From the article in the OP:

    The Western Conservative Summit is scheduled for June in Denver, where thousands of conservative activists will gather to hear Republican presidential hopefuls like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Pennsylvania Sen Rick Santorum speak. The event is organized by The Centennial Institute, a think tank affiliated with Colorado Christian University.

    You can pretend it's not a political conference if you want, but if it walks, talks, and quacks like a duck...it's a duck.

    Trying to tie the KKK in with the Democrats, hm? Nice try, but no seegar for you, sir. Time was when that was very, very true - when the very, very conservative South was solidly Democratic - the Democratic "Solid South", it was. But after the Civil Rights Act, the racists in the South began to blame the Dems...and Nixon took advantage of it with his "Southern Strategy"...
    ...and the KKK was always, always a conservative group.

    FYI - I'm well aware of all this because I grew up in the very deepest of the Deep South - the MS Delta - in a racist family, and I was racist myself - my family were Democrats until Nixon came along, and from then on we were Republicans. Thanks to the Navy forcing me to unlearn the racism that I and almost every one of my fellow whites that I knew had been taught since birth.

    So keep your KKK-Dems crap to yourself - your claim is either disingenuous or made out of sheer ignorance.

    Back then, there were liberals and conservatives in both parties...but now, there's a few conservatives in the Democratic party, and liberals are scarce as hen's teeth in the GOP.

    I would consider you to be an exception to the rule.
