It is being reported that the American Conservative Union has un-invited the American Atheists organization from participating in CPAC. The secular group's president David Silverman told CNN last night they would be setting up a booth at CPAC as part of an outreach effort. A CPAC representative confirmed the news to CNN.
“Just as there are many closeted atheists in the church pews, I am extremely confident that there are many closeted atheists in the ranks of conservatives,” said Silverman.
Then, today, CNN associate producer Dan Merica tweeted out the news that CPAC decided to pull the plug, and now the American Atheists will not have a booth at the conference.
