FRC's national picture: Slightly lesbiany with a chance of bisexuality

by Jeremy Hooper

There's so much going in this nation, with so many states in need of reform/repair. Deep divisions that halt progress. Money wells that have dried up in scary ways. Unemployment putting a strain on oh so many families. Not to mention those unrelenting "Real Housewives," who seem as if they won't rest until they bring white wine and catfights to all fifty.

But forget all that. Check out the Family Research Council's "State of the States" report to see what/who that particular organization sees as the most pressing "current issue" of our day:

[State of the States: FRC]

Yep, you got it: It's still the LGBT crowd that's keeping Tony Perkins and Co. up at night. Far and away, it's simple acceptance of the human population's reality that earns their "Family Research" time, attention, and dollars. Making life harder for certain kinds of taxpayers remains the most prevailing goal. Such priorities.

And it's not like these are the only states on their radar, either. Give FRC half a chance to rollback marriage in Massachusetts or Connecticut, or to push back a basic protection in any other state, and you can be sure that our highlighted text will expand. Because at this point, FRC is, first and foremost, an anti-LGBT advocacy group. Not "pro-family." Not a "values" group. They are anti-LGBT, seizing the chance to become a discriminatiory anti-Human Rights campaign in a world where such a need should not exist.

The sad thing is that the state of our states could be strong, if only these self-appointed "culture warriors" would drop the weaponry. Or perhaps if Andy Cohen could just sit them down in an ornately decorated room and let them talk out their issues.
