FRC vows to 'stop a well-funded threat to…freedom'; oddly, this doesn't seem to mean that they're closing shop

by Jeremy Hooper

If you saw the ornate ivory tower that the Family Research Council calls its D.C. headquarters, you'd be sickened. If you haven't, then you'll have to trust me—it's not the province of paupers, that building.

But never mind that, the reality of an extremely deep-pocketed organization that could not be more connected to the GOP or D.C. access in general. Instead, let Tony Perkins hit you up for cash behind claims that they are the outfunded innocents who need hardworking Americans' handouts so that they can tell the world that gays are not born that way:

The Ocean Grove claim is a blatant lie. The idea that research has disproven in-born sexuality is a lie. The claim that "decades of research" shows mentally and physically hurt gays in a lie. The notion that Catholic Charities has ever been forced out of adoption is a lie (they've made their choices against the wishes of their own supporters). And so on and so forth.

FRC has put a lot of stake on the belief that cherry-picked, man-written, multi-translated "clobber passages" are lock-solid cases against LGBT people. But really, for their sake, they should probably put more hope in the idea that the whole judging, stone-casting, and bearing false witness things were merely suggestions.
