The battle between WorldNetDaily founder Joseph Farah and Ann Coulter over the right-wing author's decision to keynote a gathering of gay Republicans is set to take a different path on September 17.
GOProud -- the gay GOP group Coulter will be addressing -- put out the following press release indicating its board chairmen will be debating Farah, the right-wing's homophobic birther king:
Today, GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies, announced it has accepted World Net Daily's offer to participate in a debate at their "Taking America Back" conference on September 17th in Miami, FL. Christopher R. Barron, Chairman of GOProud's board, will square off against World Net Daily's Joseph Farah.
"Since we announced that conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter would be headlining our Homocon 2010 in New York City, Farah has attacked GOProud, attacked Ann, and challenged our work almost every single day," said Barron. "I look forward to standing on the stage with Mr. Farah to defend GOProud, to debunk the misinformation he has spread, and to make the case for GOProud's conservative mission."
Farah and Barron have agreed to debate the thesis, "Is GOProud Conservative?"
"I welcome the opportunity to debate whether GOProud is really a conservative organization. Our work on behalf of conservative policies and conservative candidates speaks for itself," continued Barron.
