    Mitt Romney Friday addressed the Values Voters Summit and thanked Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council “for their leadership.” The Family Research Council is an anti-gay hate group as certified by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and headed by Perkins. Although invited, Romney declined to attend the Values Voters Summit, a conservative conference sponsored by FRC and the American Family Association, also an anti-gay hate group. Friday, in an unscheduled and surprise move, Romney addressed the annual conference via this pre-recorded video. Paul Ryan, Romney’s running mate, attended and spoke at the Values Voters Summit Friday morning.

    Shockingly, Romney adopted Rick Santorum‘s and Focus on the Family‘s ridiculous claim that if someone gets married, they automagically pull their children out of poverty.

    This move is significant merely because Romney has now drawn a line in the sand and made clearer than ever before that he supports hate — he’s actually now thanked them for it.

    The Values Voters Summit is, in fact, a hate group conference. Hosted by the lobbying arm of the anti-gay group, the Family Research Council’s FRCAction, and sponsored by another anti-gay hate group, the American Family Association, along with anti-gay organizations like Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, and Gary Bauer’s American Values, The Heritage Foundation, and Mat Staver’s Liberty Counsel, the Values Voters Summit is truly the nexus of anti-gay, anti-women, anti-Islam, anti-Black hate.

    Romney also donated $10,000 to NOM in 2008 (National Organization for Marriage), another anti-gay hate group.

    I am not in any way in support of groups like NOM, but I do think that the word "Hate" is bandied around irresponsibly by the gay community, and specifically by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center that define them as "hate groups". Not sure if this video has been posted already, but I think if you haven't seen it you should probably watch it. It's between Dan Savage and the head of NOM, Brian Brown after Savage challenged Brown to a debate at his home. The debate was moderated by Mark Oppenheimer of the New York Times. It is at the very least a really good example of two people with vastly different opinions presenting their argument respectfully. I'm not sure if the Savage vs, Brown debate solved anything, or changed any minds on either side, however it does outline quite clearly, and respectfully, the opinions on both sides of this argument.

    SPLC rightly identifies NOM and AFA as hate groups, NOT because of political differences BUT because they knowingly spread inflammatory lies about the LGBT community (e.g. gay men are pedophiles, being gay = depression, etc.).
