Focus on the Family might end its sponsorship of a national conservative political action rally because of the involvement of a gay conservative group.
The lobbying arm of Focus on Family, CitizenLink, is a co-sponsor of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. next month. CitizenLink senior vice president Tom Minnery said that the group is participating partly to help offset the influence of the gay group, GOProud. But he says this may be the last year it’s a sponsor.
Sarah Palin and Mike Hucakbee are among those scheduled to speak at the conference.
GOPround participated last year and one group pulled out. This year, the Family Research Council and several others are boycotting it.
