WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senate Republican Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) is catching the heat from the National Stonewall Democrats (NSD) for leading a political event where participants routinely ridiculed gay families while calling for legalized discrimination.
Frist joined, via video, a live simulcast broadcast by the Family Research Council titled “Justice Sunday: Stopping the Filibuster Against People of Faith.” The event was designed to build support for Republican efforts to change Senate rules in order to approve the most radical, anti-gay judicial nominations of the Bush Administration.
