Ryan Sorba is a member of the California Young Americans For Freedom, a group formed in the 1960's, upholding the US Constitution as the foundation of the nation, only to now have mutated into a group of young conservatives who strive to deny chosen minority groups their access to equal rights. You know, the kind of logic enshrined in the US Constitution.

Sorba spoke at CPAClast week, condemned the Convention's inviting of Go Pride (an LGBT group) to the event. According to Sorba, civil rights are not based on anything like a Constitution, or the laws of a nation, but rather to "natural rights". He further defines the rights as Civil, Natural, Human. In other words, LGBT Americans don't deserve equal civil rights because we aren't "natural" in Sorba's mind. Forget the fact that all professionals in science, medicine and psychology announced long ago that LGBT people are just as natural as anyone else. Another instance of conservatives re-defining words to rile the base. Check out how the crowd reacts in the video below...
