GOProud's Jimmy LaSalvia: Majority of conservatives embrace gay conservatives

(CNN) - In the news: Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Wednesday signed into law a bill that will legalize civil unions for same-sex couples in the Aloha State. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama has ordered the Justice Department to stop defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage for federal purposes as only between a man and woman, according to a statement Wednesday from Attorney General Eric Holder.

Answering today’s off-set questions is Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies.

  2. once upon a horse

    these guys need to wake up and see what world we are living in. I have freinds that are conservatives and also Republicans and although they are not bad people, NONE of them support gay rights or things such as gay marriage. They view the gay life style as immoral and do not condone it. I just can't see how a true gay person can be a right wing conservative Republican. The GOP is always the party that votes against them. Sure maybe they'll be happy to take their money, even take their votes at the polls. But a gay Republican to me is a BIGGER oxymoron than even being an African American conservative Republican!

  3. GOP = Greed Over People

    JImmy, Jimmy Jimmy, now I understand, you possess the only trait needed to be a GOP member

    You are completely delusional. Perhaps, you had had one too many apple martinis when half of CPAC boycotted the "event" because you were one of the hosts?.

    Maybe it is time to cut back on the crystal meth?

    Maybe your self-esteem is smaller than Coulter's man parts?

    Whatever the cause, get help from your favorite mental health professional.
