Paul Ryan asked by Human Rights Campaign to skip speaking at "hate group" conference
Buzz Feed Politics ^ | Sep 10 2012 | Staff

Posted on 09/11/2012 8:10:37 AM PDT by scottjewell

Groups hosting the annual conference are dedicated “to the eradication of gay people from the mainstream,” Human Rights Campaign spokesman says. Rep. Paul Ryan is a confirmed speaker.

"It's just not appropriate for individuals, for people in authority to appear at a forum being hosted by an organization designated a hate group and which is co-hosted by the American Family Association."

Several left-leaning organizations — including the Human Rights Campaign, which has endorsed President Obama's re-election — are calling on public officials, including the Republicans' vice-presidential candidate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, not to speak at the Values Voters Summit, hosted by the Family Research Council and scheduled to take place this weekend in Washington, D.C.

HRC's vice president for communications, Fred Sainz, said his organization, along with the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, were encouraging all politicians to decline participating in the summit because some organizations behind the event are listed as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

He added that, of the politicians they are focused on asking to stay away, Ryan and House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia are "two individuals at the top of our list."

...

"These are fringe organizations that are preaching hate. It's a false balance to contrast these groups with policy organizations. The sponsors of this conference should not be confused with serious policy advocates," Sainz added. "They are not dedicated to civil discourse, nor are they dedicated to policy disagreements. These are groups dedicated, in part, to the eradication of gay people from the mainstream, attempting to banish us to the outskirts of society."

SLPC/Morris Dees is one of the most rabid hate-groups in existence.

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.

Ryan needs to tell them to “pound sand.”

New Republican Slogan: “When in danger, or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!” We should be running Lewis Carroll for president.

Is it hate to wish them a full life instead of the darkness and emptiness homosexuality brings them? I guess I’m a hater.

Eradicate the people? No, just the behavior.

They are so fully identified with their behavior, that for them, it is one and the same.

I guess that is why Ryan skipped speaking in Charlotte last week at the DNC.

I guess I’m a hater

I believe in traditional marriage, so, I guess I'm a "hater" too.

The fact that an organization like this is on anyone's list as a "hate group" really trivializes the entire concept of "hate group". A hate group used to be people who shoved fellow human beings into ovens. Now, because I believe that the traditional family is the best environment for children to be raised, and the best environment for both men and women to live their lives, puts me into a "hate" category. Really?

I’m sure Ryan is not going to pay any attention to this, for that reason.

I see. Now if you believe in family values, you're a "hater".

The battle lines are clearly drawn. We either win this fight or lose our country. You want a hill to die on? Here it is.

If they were consistent, the homopsycho agenda crowd would have to say everyone whoever lived prior to the 21st century was a “hater” as well.

By that definition, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Anne Frank would be “haters” too since from all we know about them, they believed marriage is between a man and a woman and did nothing to advocate its redefinition.
