GOPers blast Portman for having gay son, “agreeing with sodomy”

Attendees at the conservative CPAC conference, the biggest GOP conference of the year, blasted conservative GOP Senator Rob Portman for having a gay son, and for endorsing same-sex marriage as a result of his son’s coming out.

One conference-goer accused Portman of “agreeing with sodomy.” Another said it was Portman’s “fault” that his son was gay.

CPAC, like the Republican party it represents, has a long history of anti-gay animus.

Here’s ThinkProgress’ video of attendees reacting to the new today:
