Reality TV star Josh Duggar heading to Indiana to lobby for anti-gay marriage amendment

by Jeremy Hooper

Tony Perkins' new righthand man, Family Research Council Action head and 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar, is booking his trip to Indiana so that he can use his reality TV fame to help make life less fair and free for Hoosier state gays:

And here's the press release:

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council Action (FRC Action), American Family Association of Indiana, and the Indiana Family Institute will hold a news conference in the Indiana State House on Monday, January 27, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern. This event will take place the day before the Indiana General Assembly is expected to vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment.

The news conference will feature national and state leaders who will call on legislators to support the amendment, unchanged, and protect the definition of marriage from activist judges. The leaders will speak to the consequences of redefining marriage and its detrimental impact on the freedoms and livelihoods of wedding vendors and those in other professions who for religious or moral convictions will not recognize the redefinition of marriage.
WHAT: News Conference urging support for the Marriage Protection Amendment, unchanged
WHO:
Josh Duggar, Executive Director, Family Research Council Action
Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, Family Research Council
Micah Clark, Executive Director, American Family Association of Indiana
Curt Smith, President, Indiana Family Institute
WHEN: 9 a.m. Eastern, Monday, January 27, 2014
WHERE: Indiana Statehouse, Room 125, 200 West Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204
SOURCE Family Research Council Action

So it turns out Josh is going to attend the event alongside Peter Sprigg, a man who has called to "export" and criminalize gays; Curt Smith, an "ex-gay" advocate who admits he believes "homosexuality is harmful to all, including society:" and Micah Clark, another "ex-gay" proponent whose org. (AFA of Indiana) promotes three different groups geared toward "changing" gay people. What a cast! So much for the claim that it's just about marriage. But then again, we already knew that.
