Audio: Focus gives platform to controversial pastor, false ideas to supporters

by Jeremy Hooper

All "decent people" will want to write discrimination into North Carolina's constitution. Those who recognize church/state separation and support *civil* marriage equality are really part of a "church of secular humanism," on par with religious church.

At least that's the message Focus on the Family is sending to supporters:

*AUDIO SOURCE: Pastors Take Offense at ‘Civil Rights’ Label [FotF Citizenlink]

It's maddening. There's no other word for it. It's simply maddening the way these faith-motivated "marriage protectors" refuse to acknowledge the line of separation: The same line that already separates heterosexual couples from the pastors who might oppose them for any number of reasons (interfaith marriage, atheism, divorce-and-remarriage, etc.)

Oh, and the reason why I call Fozard controversial: Well, as our friend Pam Spaulding reminds us, Rev. Fozard is someone who is widely known to use the word "f*ggot" in his sermons. Probably not the kind of voice I'd be pushing if I wanted to build up my cash-strapped organization. Oh, and certainly not the voice I'd be pushing if I wanted to deny animus' role in state marriage amendments.
