Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan Scheduled To Speak At FRC Hate Group’s “Values Voters Summit”

Although not confirmed on its main page.  Both GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are scheduled to appear and speak at the Family Research Center anti-gay hate group led “Values Voters Summit” to be held September 12th – 16th at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington, DC.

The Values Voter Summit began in 2006 by a collection of “Christian” political action groups and is run and sponsored by bona fide Southern Poverty Law Center-certified hate groups, including the Family Research Council,  American Family Association, Liberty Counsel and also anti-gay groups like the Heritage Foundation, Liberty University, Gary Bauer’s American Values.

Speakers and “Special” guests at the V.V.S. Haterpooloza include:

Gov. Mike Huckabee, enthusiastic Chick-fil-A glutton. Who when he was running for president in 2007, Huckabee refused to recant his 1992 suggestion that HIV-positive people should be forcibly quarantined.

Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, who declared that openly gay people should not be teaching public school. ”

Rep. Steve King of Iowa who believes marriage equality is only for public affirmation. And not only is it a radical social idea, it is a purely socialist concept in the final analysis.

Rick “frothy mix” Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator, failed presidential candidate, sweater-vest wearer, early pioneer in equating marriage equality with “man on dog” sex.

And the list goes on and is a veritable  “Who’s Who” of anti-gay, anti-women’s choice, anti-union, and anti-muslim hate with other guests including: Michelle Bachmann, Oliver North, Glenn Beck, and Jerry Boykin.  Governors Scott Walker ann Jan Brewer, GOP Reps Eric Cantor, Daniel Iisash, and Bobby Jhindal.  And the icing on this “hate cake” Cardinal Timothy Dolan who  personally authorizing $20,000 payoffs to pedophile priests. (And ironically is saying the closing prayer at the Democraic National Convention)

But lets not forget the man responsible for the Values Voters Summit and who will be leading it all,  Tony Perkins President of the FRC who has greatfully accepted awards by white supremacist groups and was once busted for purchasing Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke’s mailing list worked out for him? Oh, wait, better not. It’s a sore subject since the Federal Election Commission fined him $82,500 for lying to them about it

Now that’s Family Voters Values!

And of course FOX-NEWS and C-Span will be covering the event.

Note:  Back2Stonewall.com was hoping to cover this event from the inside.  But once again being “independent” has worked against us and we can not raise the $2000.00 needed fot travel, hotel and expenses. (But if you happen to have an extra 2K lying around the DONATE button is to the left.  We can dream can’t we.)
