Is Hate On The Agenda At This Weekend’s Values Voter Summit? (VIDEO)

 

Uh, yes, it is…

Addicting Info

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), along with other signatories, sent a letter asking several prominent speakers, including vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, to reconsider attending the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. this weekend because of defamatory comments against the LGBT community made by the host of the conference, the Family Research Council (FRC) and one of its co-sponsors, the American Family Association (AFA). Both of these organizations are classified as hate groups by the SPLC and they cite specific examples of why they are designated as such in their letter:

Here is what Bryan Fischer, the AFA’s Director of Issue Analysis, wrote in 2010: “Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews.” He once said that welfare rewards black people who “rut like rabbits.”The FRC’s extremism is also illustrated by its recent hiring of retired Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, a radical anti-Muslim propagandist and conspiracy theorist, as its executive vice president. Last year, Mr. Boykin stated that “Islam is not a religion and does not deserve First Amendment protections”— a statement that is antithetical to American ideals. In the Affordable Care Act, he literally sees a plot to create a shadow police force that he compares to Hitler’s “Brownshirts.” Yet, the FRC has not only hired Mr. Boykin, it has given him a prominent speaking slot at the Summit.

Here’s a short video displayed the rabid hate that will be on display this weekend:

Really?! These are the values that Republicans and their Christian supporters want us to vote for? The breakout sessions scheduled for Saturday on the Values Voter Summit site sound innocuous enough when you read the titles but I think they are masking their real agenda so I’ve provided my own translation of the actual topics being addressed:

  • Economic Inequality: Reconciling Capitalism And Compassion (Screw The Poor)
  • Israel, Iran And The Future Of Western Civilization (Bring On The Rapture)
  • Speechless? Silencing The Christians (Adopt Our Beliefs or Get the Hell Out)
  • Understanding Radical Islam 101 (Converting The Heathens)
  • One Life: 40 Years Of Roe V. Wade, Ending Abortion Today (Every Egg is Sacred)
  • Repealing Obamacare (Screw the Sick)
  • Can You Protect Your Children From The Commercial Sex Industry? (Okay, No One Is Pro Child Sex Trafficking)
  • Preparing For The Coming Economic Earthquake (President Mitt Romney)
  • Grassroots Activism Get-Out-The Vote (GOTV) Workshop (Voter Suppression 101)
  • Vertical Vote Campaign For Life, Marriage and Religious Liberties (God Hates Fags)
  • Millennial And The Future Of Political Engagement (Homeschoolers Unite)
  • Debunking The Myth Of Separation…Why Pastors Must Engage In Politics (America, Christian Theocracy)

Three days of anger, fear and hate in the name of God. Just like Jesus would have wanted!

    It’s OK. Go ahead and say what you mean — and know that those of us who are realists are with you 100%.

    I hereby appoint you my official religio-politicus* translator. [*That's my word and I'm proud of it!]
