During a breakout session at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Feb. 27, pro-life activist Abby Johnson chastised the event for doing little to promote conservatism's inherent ties to religious faith, for not defending traditional marriage, and for permitting morally subversive groups like the Log Cabin Republicans and Atheists for Liberty to exhibit at the conference. 

“We have a problem with the conservative movement," said Johnson, "we don’t hear enough of [the word of God] from the main stage [at CPAC]. I think gun rights, election integrity is important … but we need to hear more about God from the largest conservative conference in the United States.”

“They haven’t had one keynote speaker stand up there and talk about the attack on traditional marriage,” she said. “And they can’t. Because some of their sponsors are gay conservatives.”

The Log Canin Republicans is an LGBT organization.

“Transgenderism is running rampant through CPAC and we’re not talking about traditional families, we’re not talking about traditional marriage," added Johnson, "because we have compromised to this false sense of diversity.”

“We have a problem in the conservative movement," she said. "Because we are allowing diversity to trump Jesus Christ."

"There is an attack on Judeo-Christian beliefs in this country and we’re not addressing it at our country’s largest conservative conference?" she said. "Because what? Because we want sponsorships to roll in? Come on.”

Johnson continued, "We are too worried about offending our neighbor and we should be 100 percent worried about offending the heart of God.... We have a problem with the conservative movement, and the only way to bring back truth — big 'T' truth — in the conservative movement is to focus less on diversity and to focus more on Jesus Christ.”
