The Christian Family Coalition has released a 10-year anniversary video of its recent accomplishments, including defeat of a proposal to add gender identity and expression to Miami-Dade County's current anti-discrimination law.
"When the Miami-Dade County Commission tried to pass the discriminatory 'transsexual' ordinance, CFC STOOD AGAINST DISCRIMINATION," according to the video, which also features photos of national and local politicians speaking to the conservative group.
Included: former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, R- Pa.; U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; Gov. Rick Scott, R-Fla.; U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami; and former GOP (now a Democrat) Gov. Charlie Crist – misspelled Christ in the video.
Earlier this week, CFC sent a mailing about its anniversary dinner held Dec. 6 at the Miami Airport Marriott hotel. From the mailing:
We hosted over 300 guests, making this dinner one of our most successful ever. CFC presented our keynote speaker, the Honorable U.S. Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart the 2013 Pro-Life Champion Award. Singer Tania Infante gave a riveting musical performance and later Florida State Representatives Eduardo "Eddy" Gonzalez and Jeanette Nunez were honored with the 2013 Friend of the Family Award. The award recognizes the outstanding efforts of those legislators who vote 100% with Christian Family Coalition (CFC) priorities. Thank you for joining us at the 2013 CFC Gala Dinner, this amazing event would not have been possible without your support!
