Of the seven "hot topics" the American Family Association has under current focus, only one (the Hardee's/Carl's Jr. one) is about something other than LGBT matters:

Just another reason why LGBT issues are always in play whenever these "pro-family" folks engage in the public sphere. It's not because we, the oft-branded-as-militant activists are obsessed with LGBT rights and forcing conversation about the sameā€”it's because they are! Just about every single person and group that identifies with the "pro-family" brand spends an inordinate amount of time every single day chastising any advancement that somehow betters an LGBT citizen's life. We are simply noting the obsessive reality!

It is both impossible and illogical to talk about the American Family Association, Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, or any of the rest without talking about those groups' anti-LGBT advocacy. It's irresponsible to ignore that truth.
