Politicians Urged To Boycott Controversial Family Research Council’s Values Voters Summit (VIDEO)
Since 2006, the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., hosted by the controversial Family Research Council, has been an important meet-and-greet for conservative politicians angling for endorsements from the religious right.
This year, however, a group of human rights organizations headed by the Southern Poverty Law Center is publicly urging the summit's high-profile speakers to boycott the event, due to the opinions of the FRC and its leaders, namely Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, the The Daily Caller reports.
Boykin, a former Delta Force officer, was recently named executive vice president of the FRC. Not afraid to speak his mind, the outspoken veteran's controversial comments are making headlines in the run-up to his organization's gathering, reported to include such high profile politicians as House leader Eric Cantor and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan.
