FRC's latest fundraising pitch: Servicemembers' weddings are 'desecrating' military chapels

by Jeremy Hooper

This nation's brave service members fight to the potential death so that groups like the Family Research Council can have their say. But when those same service members who happen to be gay find a loving partner with whom they are lucky enough to join in marriage, they are "desecrating" their bases' chapels.

So goes the latest fundraising-geared musing of FRC's rabidly anti-gay president, Tony Perkins:

Because in case you forgot, FRC holds the deed to these chapels. And to religion itself, in fact. God comes down once a year for an FRC committee meeting, where the supreme deity grants Tony Perkins the power to cast stones (or votes, as it were) at the heads of anyone who doesn't $upport FRC's views on life, marriage, the spectrum of normalcy, or Republican partisanship.

It's FRC's mortal kingdom, which they and their infallible supporters are lucky enough to share with God. The rest of us peons get to feast on whatever scraps they deign to throw down from their morally superior pedestal (if we're lucky).
