House Speaker John Boehner Secures Meeting Room for Anti-Gay Group Barred from Senate by Mark Kirk

This morning we reported that Senator Mark Kirk had barred  the virulently anti-gay World Congress of Families from meeting in the Senate's Dirksen office building, but apparently the group has found a safe haven at a House office building thanks to Speaker John Boehner, Buzzfeed reports:

BoehnerWorld Congress of Families president Allan Carlson praised Boehner’s intervention at in opening remarks at the event, which is focusing on what “pro-family legislators” can learn from foreign laws like Russia’s ban on “promoting non-traditional sexual relationships to minors.”

“At least in the House of Representatives people have not succumbed to the great fear” of LGBT activists, Carlson said, likening the situation to developments in Germany, France, and Italy as fascism took hold of Europe. “A great fear seems to be descending over what has been called the world’s greatest deliberative body … ideas are being suppressed, debate is being shut off, and minds are being closed.”
