The co-founder of Young Conservatives of California on Friday publicly criticized the Conservative Political Action Conference for allowing a gay conservative group to participate in the event.
During his time at the podium, Ryan Sorba condemned CPAC for allowing GOProud, which he referred to as “GOPride,” to be involved in the conference and suggested homosexuality is contrary to human nature.
“Guess what?” he said. “Civil rights are grounded in natural rights. Natural rights are grounded in human nature. Human nature is a rational substance and relationship — the intelligible end of the reproductive act is reproduction.”
Sorba’s remarks were received by the audience with a mixture of jeers and applause. In response to the jeers, Sorba said, “The lesbians at Smith College protest better than you do.”
Media Matters, a liberal media watchdog, posted a video online of Sorba’s remarks.
