FRC's Peter Sprigg Appears On CNN To Denounce Inauguration Speech

Why does CNN continue to host the man who publicly called for the imprisonment of LGBT Americans?  Via Mediaite:
Sprigg didn’t agree with the president linking the gay rights movement with civil rights for African Americans and women’s rights. “The irony is,” he contended, “homosexuals already have all the same civil rights as anyone else. But that fact that all people are created equal as individuals does not mean all sexual behavior is equal or that all personal relationships have an equal value to society at large.”

Many would say that’s wrong, O’Brien remarked before shifting the conversation more toward tone and political positioning. “I do think he was kind of laying down the gauntlet,” Sprigg argued. “Not really saying, ‘Let’s seek common ground, let’s find place where we can agree and compromise’ — but saying, ‘This is the agenda that I have, and I’m going to pursue it.’”
