FRC prays for Congress to stop 'homosexual abuse' of military

by Jeremy Hooper

From the Family Research Council's latest round of "prayer targets":

Don't be confused. FRC isn't talking about actual abuse, the likes of which we all decry regardless of the gender of its aggressors and victims. FRC considers our mere presence in the armed forces to be a form of abuse. That's what they want to reverse.

But the American public is not with FRC. The vast majority realize the LGBT people also step up and defend American lives on the battlefield, fighting for the right for groups like FRC to say what they want to say (or pray as they want to pray, as it were). FRC might think it's scoring points with its plan to paint gay soldiers as inherent "abusers," but it's really just another overplayed hand that is serving to destroy the last remaining shreds of the anti-LGBT movement's credibility.
