Iowa Family Leader willfully fans flames, more fully connects self to 'gay=smoking' program

by Jeremy Hooper

In a truly odd flick of the lighter, the folks at Bob Vander Plaats' Family Leader group have now relit this once-dead link...

...so that their butts are even more fully, undeniably connected to the heinous program that directly compares homosexuality to cigarette smoking and that seeks gay "change." They have locked down the direct url (SecondHandEffects.com) but reinstated this, the one that connects them by name.

Not sure why The Family Leader would make this odd choice, since they're response has been to distance themselves (even as Bob Vander Plaats continued to say homosexuality is a "public health risk"). But whatever the reasoning, TFL's support is now more undeniable than ever. And every GOP candidate who's so eagerly signing up to speak in front of this group (Pawlenty, Paul, Bachmann, Santorum, and Huckabee so far -- Cain, Gingrich, and others in the coming weeks) should expect to be asked if their support for the 2nd Amendment also extends to this disturbing smoking gun!
