From the Daily Caller:
In a speech to about 150 GOProud supporters who gathered at the home of billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel in New York City, Coulter acknowledged that gays could play an important role in the conservative movement, but was clear about her continued opposition to gay marriage.
“I thought I’d try to talk you out of gay marriage,” Coulter said. “I will warn you that I have never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage.”
While the crowd seemed thrilled to hear the best-selling author roll off a string of classic Coulter one-liners that left many of them in stitches –”It’s hard to believe this now, but when Obama was running for president he presented himself as a moderate Democrat. To be fair, in Kenya he is a moderate.” — her speech against gay marriage failed to find many converts, if any.
At the crux of her argument, Coulter said that marriage was for procreation and insisted gays had no grounds to base support for gay marriage on civil rights.
“It’s not a civil right,” she said. “You’re not black.”
After her prepared remarks, Coulter opened the floor for questions, and got flooded. . .
Others said it was only a matter of time before the Republican Party opened up to gay conservatives.
“I think that the gay bashing will be taken out of the Republican agenda and I think it’s getting there,” said Michael Lucas, founder of New York’s largest gay adult film company who the New Republic magazine once described as “Gay Porn’s Neocon Kingpin.” ”This event shows that they are coming to us.”
When asked if she thought she had changed any hearts and minds, Coulter told The DC, “The truth is…they’re already against gay marriage, they just won’t admit it publicly. I’m trying to get these gays to come out of the closet.”
