Oh dear, FRC, was it something we said?

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember how we found the Family Research Council using a "Battlestar Gallactica" tune in their DADT videos, and how we, knowing how inclusive that particular show was, got a pro-gay/anti-FRC response back from the composer of those TV tunes? Well check this out: All of those vids, including the ones they tried to mask with Youtube's "unlist" feature, have now been yanked:

FRC has posted one new one using different intro music, and their two old DADT ads remain. But the eight or nine vids that they have been linking to in their daily "Washington Updates" are now gone. Done away. History.

Incidentally, just like the flawed Don't Ask Don't Tell policy soon will be!

**For those who don"t know what we're talking about, here's the backstory:

Pt1: Hey Bear McCreary: Do you want your music used for anti-gay bigotry? [G-A-Y]

Pt2: Bear responds, denounces FRC's usage [G-A-Y]

***

*On their anti-DADT repeal spinoff site, "Mission Compromised", FRC is still using the Bear McCreary tune in the flv version of their webcast. This may or may not change. But even if the vid does stay up, know this: This much-ballyhooed webcast dedicates its first 19 seconds to a composer who has pointedly rejected the usage of his song and the mission of the group attached to it! That would embarrass us.
