This one passed me by:
|Many prominent U.S. conservative groups are shifting their attention overseas this week, organizing a conference in Poland that will decry Europe's liberal social policies and portray the host nation as a valiant holdout bucking those trends.|
|The chief organizer is a Rockford, Ill.-based conservative think tank, the Howard Center. Co-sponsors include more than 20 other U.S. groups allied in opposition to abortion, gay marriage and other policies they blame for weakening traditional families in Western Europe.|
``Europe is almost lost - to demographic winter and to the secularists,'' says a planning document for the congress. ``If Europe goes, much of the world will go with it. Almost alone, Poland has maintained strong faith and strong families.''
|Co-sponsors of the congress include the American Family Association, Concerned Women For America, the Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, the Heritage Foundation and the Seattle-based Discovery Institute, which promotes the ``intelligent design'' concept of the universe's origins.|

Can someone find the DI article from a while back where they were up in arms that someone called them a conservative think thank?
