The Southern Poverty Law Center asked Governor Jan Brewer and others to skip out on an event hosted by the Family Research Council because of the group's persistent "demonization" of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
As you can imagine, Brewer wasn't convinced.
The Southern Poverty Law Center explained that it's not upset with the Family Research Council and associated groups' political views on gay rights, but instead the "repeated, groundless demonization - portraying LGBT people as sick, vile, incestuous, violent, perverted, and a danger to the nation."
We provided a couple of those examples -- like the gay Hitler theory -- yesterday.
Also speaking at the event will be Arizona Policy president Cathi Herrod, who's known for bringing her own version of morality policing to Arizona.
That said, should Brewer find something else to fit in her schedule?
