Feud between Miami-Dade Commissioner Moss, Christian Family Coalition plays out from dais

From Miami Herald reporter Patricia Mazzei in the Naked Politics blog:

The conservative Christian Family Coalition turned up the heat Tuesday on a long-simmering feud against Miami-Dade Commissioner Dennis Moss.

Anthony Verdugo, the Coalition's executive director, took the microphone in a "citizen's presentation" at a county commission meeting to demand a retraction and an apology from Moss. In December, Moss spoke against the group's successful efforts to reinstate prayer at the beginning of commission meetings.

Moss recalled how the Christian Coalition attacked him during the bitter 1998s campaign for Miami-Dade's human rights bill, which gave gays equal rights. He linked the Christian Family Coalition to the Christian Coalition, which fought the human-rights ordinance and, according to Moss, openly discriminated against blacks and immigrants.

"Conduct of this kind is simply unbecoming of an elected official," Verdugo said Tuesday. "Commissioner Moss, we have earned your respect."
