Utah’s Republican Lt. Gov: Sorry for Past LGBT Treatment
CHANGE OF HEART
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."
