We knew that liberal heads would explode upon seeing President Donald Trump giving a speech at the Values Voter Summit Friday. The gathering is hosted by the Family Research Council, which has long been branded an anti-LGBT “SPLC Designated Hate Group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Naturally, NARAL was appalled that Trump would speak at an event hosted by an anti-choice, anti-LBGT hate group, although the way their tweet is worded, maybe they’re impressed by his bravery at attending in his capacity as a sitting president … Nah.

Oh, NARAL. If only everyone shared your twisted vision of morality, but alas.


Oh, and NARAL was hardly the only one to go with the SPLC’s definition of the Family Research Council has a “hate group.” Newsweek went ahead and used that shorthand in its headline covering the president’s speech:

It might even get someone shot … oh wait, it did.

A full transcript of the president’s speech can be found on the White House website. Here’s a taster:

For too long, politicians have tried to centralize the authority among the hands of a small few in our nation’s capital. Bureaucrats think they can run your lives, overrule your values, meddle in your faith, and tell you how to live, what to say, and how to pray. But we know that parents, not bureaucrats, know best how to raise their children and create a thriving society.

We know that it’s the family and the church, not government officials, that know best how to create strong and loving communities. And above all else, we know this: In America, we don’t worship government — we worship God. Inspired by that conviction, we are returning moral clarity to our view of the world and the many grave challenges we face.
