What the pro-discrimination set has slated for Values Voter Summit
With one of America's most proudly and exceedingly anti-LGBT conferences only twelve days away, let's take a second and look at some of what the Family Research Council has planned for this year's so-called "Values Voter Summit." Here are three breakout sessions that specifically mention marriage and related matters:
In the first one, you have young people trying to convince America that polls are reversible, the youth vote's staunch LGBT support will be fleeting, and that this country's future really belongs to the pro-discrimination crowd. Good luck with all that, kiddos. Maybe when you're done, you can set off on your "the iPhone is just a fad!" campaign.
In the second, you have vocal "ex-gay" proponent Harry Jackson pretending that he, a prominent pro-discrimination advocate who has called marriage equality a "satanic plot to destroy our seed," is somehow the victim in all this. That's kind of like Johnny, the lunchroom bully, claiming that he is a victim because the lunch money that he stole wasn't enough to buy a dessert too.
And in the third, you have another set of people who fight equality as part of the terms of their contracts acting as if their attempts to rob people of civil rights for both profit and political gain are "let's agree to disagree" topics that are fit for genial dinner discussion. Thanksgiving might be the dinner they specifically mention—but they're serving up baloney.
**UPDATE: And there's one more that I initially missed: Brian Brown and Tony Perkins will be paneling against marriage equality.
