Here's what the anti-gay movement's race games look like

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council has issued the following bulletin insert in every state where we're on the ballot. Here's the Washington version, which looks like every other version I've seen:

[FRC]

But now get this. FRC just posted its Maryland version of this same document, which will presumably be dropped into churches this weekend. Notice the one substantial change:

201211020845
[FRC]

No textual changes other than to make it specific to the state. No content alterations to speak of. Only real difference? In Maryland, the picture is changed to an African American couple. FRC staffers made a deliberate change here so that they, like their buddies at NOM, could specifically target the Black church.

Keep "driving that wedge," kiddies. It's quite becoming of your movement. Really. I mean it.
