High-profile conservatives coming around on gay rights?

Ann Coulter is scheduled to speak at 'Homocon' in September

Several high profile conservatives have spoken out on gay marriage over the last week. Television host Glenn Beck, conservative author and speaker Ann Coulter and “The View” co-host Elizabeth Hassleback have all made headlines this week for their support of gay people or gay issues.

Coulter, a conservative writer and television personality, was blasted by the website World Net Daily (WND) because of plans to speak to GOProud, a gay Republican group, at their “Homocon” event in September.

WND also canceled Coulter’s planned keynote address at its “Taking America Back National Conference” taking place next month.
