Utah’s Republican Lt. Gov: Sorry for Past LGBT Treatment
Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox apologized for his past comments and opinions regarding LGBT people in light of the Orlando terrorist attack at a gay nightclub which left 49 dead and 53 injured. "I grew up in a small town and went to a small rural high school. There were some kids in my class that were different," he said. "Sometimes I wasn't kind to them. I didn't know it at the time, but I know now that they were gay. I will forever regret not treating them with the kindness, dignity and respect—the love—that they deserved. For that, I sincerely and humbly apologize."
