Yes, Peter Sprigg disagrees with us -- disagrees with our right to not be exported/criminalized!

by Jeremy Hooper

When a pro-equality activist tweeted his belief that disapproving Christians are harming others, the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg tweeted back the following:

Well, no Peter -- not all disagreement or disapproval is harm, that's for sure. But your form of disagreement/disapproval? IT TOTALLY IS, tough guy:

Peter saying he'd like to export gays:


*SOURCE: Gays seek immigration reform [Medill Reports]

Peter saying homosexuality should come with criminal sanctions:


*SOURCE: MSNBC

And not just your rhetoric personally, Peter -- but FRC's in general (see below). That is why you all are on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate groups list while more pragmatic/reserved groups on your "side" (Focus on the Family, CWA) are not! FRC, more than any other group that retains mainstream credibility, has so unapologetically pushed the bar so far beyond the pale that the harms, after twenty-four years of organizational life, are simply immeasurable!

The real "nonsense," Peter, is acting like one can say or do anything and still hide behind the mask of a mere dissenting voice. I hold no hope that you, Peter Sprigg, will turn over a peaceful and accepting leaf in 2012. But I do sincerely hope you'll start owning that which you so proudly dish! That'd be a grand start.

*More Familly Research Council rhetoric: 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, calls 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).
