More 'Second-Hand' information: Family Leader proudly e-blasting its smoking liability

by Jeremy Hooper

Building on our video connecting Iowa's conservative Family Leader group to something waaaaaaay out there called "The Second-Hand Effects of Smoking": Our pal Igor Volsky at Think Progress has found that one need not even dig as much as we did to establish the Family Leader/"gays are like smoking and therefore should quit" connection. Igor writes:

In fact, one doesn’t even have to change the URL or search for the “Second Hand Effects” of same-sex marriage. I signed up for The Family Leader’s email alerts and was taken to this page, which prominently displayed the offending website:

Leading Iowa ‘Family’ Group Compares Homosexuality To ‘Second Hand’ Cigarette Smoking [Think Progress]

Weird. It's as if they're proud of it.

Well, we certainly know the first question we'd ask Tim Pawlenty on Monday, when he speaks at a Family Leader-sponsored event.

*Also: Everyone should download the "Second Hand Effects of Smoking" facts packet. It's a near certainty that they'll remove it, now that this is catching fire. (Download zip file)
