FRC's pre-Thanksgiving fundraiser: Ensuring gays will feel even less welcome at their conservative relatives' homes

by Jeremy Hooper

As we head into this week of thanks, the Family Research Council wants you to remember: Your gay cousin has destroyed the military, and will not rest until he destroys marriage and religious freedom as well:

Most telling line: "FRC is currently working overtime in Washington, DC to garner support to overturn the new Department of Defense guidelines allowing chaplains to officiate at same-sex "weddings" on military bases and to make sure DOMA is applied to the military." Because it's not enough for non-approving chaplains to simply abstain from performing certain marriages, a right that no one is calling into question (regardless of how FRC misstates the issue). No, no -- FRC wants to enforce their discriminatory view on every person of faith, including those affirming religious leaders who are eager to celebrate same-sex couples and their love. That is the arrogance that keeps "culture wars" militarized.
