's Joseph Farah has compared gay Republican group GOProud to “swinging adulterers.”

GOProud's participation in the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) convention two years in a row has rankled social conservatives. At least three groups have decided to pass on this year's three-day event to be held next month in Washington, D.C.

In an op-ed published on Wednesday, Farah suggested that CPAC had been infiltrated by “swinging adulterers.”

“Let's pretend that some free-market-loving adulterers got together and formed an organization called 'Swing Right,'” Farah wrote. “This group says it supports a strong U.S. defense, but that the military should have no rules against promiscuous sex inside the ranks. The group says it supports free enterprise, but that tax policy should be revamped to create equity for those in the 'swinging' lifestyle. The group says it supports limited government, but it approves of the intervention of federal judges in state referenda in which citizens approve of marriage as an institution between one man and one woman. The group also calls for special protections of the 'swinging' community that will ensure adulterers will not be fired by their bosses because of their behavior and applauds hate-crimes laws to punish those who don't approve of their lifestyle.”

“Would it be appropriate for conservatives, who are supposed to be about conserving the vital institutions of self-government, to validate such a group's claims being part of the movement?” he added.

Farah's comments appeared after GOProud's Christopher Barron insisted conservatives accept gay Republicans.

Sex advice columnist and gay rights activist Dan Savage also recently chided the group, calling it a “little gay window dressing.”
