Earlier this year, Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was shot during a Congressional baseball practice when a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter fired into a baseball field full of Republicans.Scalise just returned to Congress this week, and already he’s made multiple controversial statements. Scalise openly advocated the NRA, despite being shot due to the lax gun laws in America and the recent Vegas massacre.
During the Congressional baseball shooting, Capital Police Officer Crystal Griner took a bullet for Scalise and saved his life. Griner is a lesbian, but Scalise doesn’t care.
Scalise announced his plan to attend the Value Voters Summit hosted by the anti-LGBTQ group, the Family Research Council.
Family Research Council believes that homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed. It is by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects. While the origins of same-sex attractions may be complex, there is no convincing evidence that a homosexual identity is ever something genetic or inborn. We oppose the vigorous efforts of homosexual activists to demand that homosexuality be accepted as equivalent to heterosexuality in law, in the media, and in schools. Attempts to join two men or two women in “marriage” constitute a radical redefinition and falsification of the institution, and FRC supports state and federal constitutional amendments to prevent such redefinition by courts or legislatures. Sympathy must be extended to those who struggle with unwanted same-sex attractions, and every effort should be made to assist such persons to overcome those attractions, as many already have.
The council recently released the following statement concerning Scalise without ever mentioning the woman who saved his life:
There were times when we wondered if House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) would ever speak at VVS again. But next week, the miraculous recovery of my good friend will literally take center stage, as Steve makes a return trip to the biggest gathering of pro-family conservatives in the country after a shooting that rocked the country. For so many Americans, seeing him back at work, defending our values, has been an answer to prayer — and we look forward to celebrating his incredible journey back to health next Friday, October 13. Don’t miss the Majority Whip and several other confirmed speakers, including Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Michele Bachmann, Frank Wolf, the Blaze’s Dana Loesch, Dr. Bill Bennett, Todd Starnes, Lt. Col. (Ret.) Oliver North, “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson, Brigitte Gabriel, actors Kevin and Sam Sorbo, Dr. Carol Swain, David Daleiden, Lila Rose, and more. Don’t miss a weekend in D.C. with thousands of fellow conservatives.
It’s hard to think of a more cruel way the Congressman could have thanked the person he owes his life.
