Michele Bachmann to deliver keynote address at anti-gay group event

LGBTQ Nation

GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann on Saturday will be the keynote speaker at the Florida Family Policy Council’s 6th Annual Policy Awards Dinner.

The FFPC is a a conservative Christian organization dedicated to fighting against marriage equality, and was the organization behind the successful 2008 Florida For Marriage effort to pass a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in the state.

Florida Family Policy Council’s President John Stemberger last year compared gays and lesbians to users and boozers when he said “non-traditional family values could include anything from drug abuse to excessive drunkenness to homosexual families.”

It seems ironic — perhaps even hypocritical — that Bachmann considers marriage equality a “frivolous matter,” refuses to answer questions about her anti-gay views, and would only say that she doesn’t judge gays.
