Praise: SPLC takes on Value Voters Summit

The Value Voters Summit, sponsored by the Family Research Council, a known hate group, and other hate organizations, is happening this weekend in Washington, DC.  This is an annual event that is focused on "family values", that is family values except for families that don't fit their narrow definition.  The list of confirmed speakers includes almost all of the Republican candidates for President (all except Jon Huntsman), and a lot of anti-equality politicians and personalities.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has long been an advocate for civil rights and equality.  They are the best at tracking hate groups in the United States.  I was going to write a long article about the lies and myths that will be perpetuated, but there is a blog entry at the SPLC Hatewatch Blog that is better than what I had started to write.  Thank you SPLC for your great work!
