Sacred [cash] cows: The Family Leader seeks church vote, church lucre

by Jeremy Hooper

Family-leaderYou know The Family Leader, that anti-LGBT Iowa group that's extreme enough to support seminars that liken gay people to cigarette smoking yet establishment enough to still host a lecture series featuring all of the GOP leading light candidates? Well it turns out that group is on the cusp of launching a new website (likely to scrub away the remaining evidence of the "Second Hand Effects" program). And while the site is not yet live, we found a workaround that let's us access ( And through said access, we found a planned program that is pretty darn unbelievable, even for our reliably opportunistic opposition. Have a look:

Become a Church Ambassador [The Family Leader's temp. site]

Yes that's right: The Family Leader is not only hoping to indoctrinate church congregations with their gayness = "distorted sexual behavior" talking points (yes, they actually say that), but they are now planning to CHARGE these churches for the service. So they not only want to use the church to affect the civil lives of others: They are also hoping to use the church to affect their own organizational bank account.

Good work, if you can get it, I guess.
