FRC's Kenyn Cureton launches new project challenging church/state separation

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council's Kenyn Cureton believes that gay people are "poor, deluded souls" who are "simply pawns in the hands of their malevolent master," constituting "the organized, mobilized, demonized forces of hell itself." When it comes to LGBT human beings, it's pretty darn clear what he wants America's children to believe.

But now Kenyn is taking on a new focus: the crucial wall of separation between church and state which we hold dear in America. Working in tandem with Derek Packard, the man who does all of the Family Research Council's video work, Cureton is quietly working on a yet-to-launch project called "Lost Episodes of American history"...

…through which he is angling in on David Barton's gig of convincing Americans that religious freedom in this country basically means catering to Christianity exclusively. Kenyn tells it like this:

For decades students have been taught that America is a secular nation. God has been omitted from the public school classroom because He supposedly had no bearing on the founding America.

Yet nothing could be further from the truth! Want proof? That’s what Lost Episodes is about - uncovering the lost episodes of our rich spiritual heritage and the deep faith of those who helped shape our nation and made it great.

But we don’t stop there because we are still writing America’s story. That’s why you will not only be challenged by the sacrifices made by those who founded this nation but also by contemporary examples of people just like you who are making a positive impact in their communities.

Here’s the bottom line: It’s great to remember and appreciate how others were used of God to create the freest, most prosperous, and greatest nation in modern history, but you and I need to take our place and do our part.

Together we can write the next episode in American history!

Now, maybe it's just "my malevolent master" the Devil controlling my gay thoughts, but I happen to value the whole wall of separation thing that keeps viewpoints like Family Research Council pushing me into a closet. If you do too, it's probably smart to keep tabs on this new FRC spinoff project, since it's probably the direction they plan to go once they inevitably lose the current round of fights.
