Sally Kern, Matt Barber, Peter Labarbera, others sign letter demanding Fox News stop booking Wayne Besen

by Jeremy Hooper

This is the hysterically far-right coalition:

Mathew D. Staver, Founder and Chairman, Liberty Counsel

Sally Kern, Oklahoma State Representative

Diane Gramley, President, American Family Association of Pennsylvania

David Smith, Executive Director of the Illinois Family Institute

Laurie Higgins, Cultural Analyst for the Illinois Family Institute

Matt Barber, Vice President, Liberty Counsel Action

Denise Shick, Founder and Director, Help 4 Families

Regina Griggs, Executive Director, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX)

Arthur Goldberg, J.D., Co-Director, Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH)

Greg Quinlan, President, Pro-Family Network of Ohio

John Kirkwood, Pastor, Grace Gospel Fellowship

Brian Camenker, Executive Director, MassResistance

Peter LaBarbera, President, AFTAH

Scott Lively, J.D., President, Defend the Family International

Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD, The Pray In Jesus Name Project

Linda Harvey, President, Mission America
