Does The Family Research Council Know Rep. Giffords’ Hero Daniel Hernandez Is Gay?

Because Tony Perkins’ homepage sure is saying very nice things about him! Hmmmm.

Congresswoman Giffords, who appears to be the shooter’s main target, is “holding her own,” doctors say. Her survival is thanks, in large part, to the brave response of Giffords’s new intern Daniel Hernandez. After just five days on the job, Hernandez–who was trained as a nurse’s assistant–rushed to the Congresswoman’s side and helped her sit upright, putting pressure on the head wound until the emergency teams arrived. When they did, Daniel stayed by her side “making sure she knew someone was with her and she wasn’t alone,” he said. Since the shooting, people have called Hernandez a hero–a title he’s quick to shrug off. “The real heroes,” he says, “are people like Congresswoman Giffords, who have dedicated their lives to public service and helping others.” A resolution to honor his boss, and the fallen, is scheduled for Wednesday.

Oh, wait, then two paragraphs later the Family Research Council is back to talking shit about gays. Whew. The Verizon iPhone announcement was enough breaking news for one day.
