Politician saved by a lesbian police officer is to speak against LGBT
Four months ago, Republican congressman Steve Scalise had his life saved by a lesbian policewoman Crystal Griner, and now he is announced as a speaker at the anti-LGBT event. House Majority Whip is set to speak on stage at a virulently homophobic hate group which has questioned if gay people should be executed, even though one of them ran towards the bullets to save him. Griner carried out her duty to protect Scalise, even though he previously co-sponsored a failed Constitutional Amendment to outlaw same-sex marriage in the United States. The FRC is listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-LGBT hate group.
Tony Perkins, the FRC’s president, said that Scalise’s return to health was not down to the brave actions of a lesbian police officer, but “an answer to prayer. His fighting spirit in overcoming the odds is a source of inspiration for those who are fighting for the heart and soul of our nation and our culture. I look forward to welcoming my friend and former colleague back to the Values Voter stage.”
