Wait, FRC doesn't realize its 'research' is detrimental? Weird, everyone else does.

by Jeremy Hooper

In response to an Anchorage Superior Court judge who sided with same-sex couples in a property tax case despite the state's discriminatory marriage amendment, Family Research Council's Tony Perkins writes:

If Judge Pfiffner had read FRC's research, he'd know that growing families--not dismantling marriage--is the best way to stabilize the economy.
[SOURCE: FRC]

Which is cute. It's as if Family Research Council staffers don't realize that their work is complete and utter spin, the likes of which any credible professional can and will poke holes. Or it's simply that FRC staffers think they are good enough actors to put one over on America. Either way: The obtuseness is simply adorrrrrrable!

The truth: While every judge should read any research groups like FRC present to him or her, any judge that accepts such research will be proving that he or she has an agenda rather than a fair judicial philosophy. And in fact, considering the dossier of animus that Family Research Council (an SPLC-designated "hate group," let me remind you) has put on the incontrovertible record (see below), I would argue that at this point, any time FRC even presents research before the court, the organization is greatly setting back its movement and cause.

*FRC: An organization that positions gays as kid-threatening disasters in need of "ex-gay" therapy, churns out brochures that compare same-sex marriages to those bonds which might exist between a man and a horse (complete with horse photo), directly likens us to terrorists, calla LGBT rights a battle of "good versus evil," says DADT repeal proponents are "willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby," claims gay teens kill themselves because they know that they're "abnormal," says the gay activists who challenge FRC are "held captive by the enemy," writes that same-sex marriage will be "opening the door to all manner of moral and social evil, tweets that gays don't need to "be a slave to feelings," fundraises around the idea that gay kids are immoral and telling them otherwise is "disgusting,"and calls on U.S. gays to be either "exported" or criminalized (to name just a few examples).
