TEA and thee: FRC says gay rights are in movement's hot water
Don't be fooled, says the Family Research Council. The TEA Party is focused on robbing gay people of civil rights:
The Maine GOP platform clearly reads "Marriage is an institution between a man and a woman" and that "[w]e recognize the sanctity of life, which includes the unborn." The vote last fall defending the definition of marriage helped to reawaken conservative activists in what is normally seen as the liberal state of Maine.
While many Washington insiders want to insist the Tea Party faction does not address the "controversial issues" important to many Christians the truth is that the actual people in the Tea Party crowds are largely the people in the pews. They understand that activism is about standing up for what you believe is right, not what you believe is convenient.

Ya know, those "inconvenient" things like treating your tax-paying LGBT neighbors with peace, equality, respect, and civil parity. The poor FRC troops have had to work so, so hard to keep it all at bay. And now they see a fresh pot in which to place their bags, so as to ensure that their "righteous" fight will $tay $trong. It doesn't take a clairvoyant to read these leaves.
Don't kid yourself, Washington (and America): there are undeniable "culture war" fires heating up under this particular TEA kettle! One only need to look at the past thirty years of politics to see how much this needless, far-right-declared "war" has ripped this nation apart, with little achievement or merit to show for it (particularly in the area of LGBT rights). Do we want to be better or do we want to relive a Tivoed copy of a particularly incendiary episode of "The 700 Club"? Pick your poison wisely.
