By now, we all know the latest mess coming from the Family Research Council – how the organization recently awarded Congressman Joe Walsh an award for supposedly fighting for “family values” even though Walsh owes over $100,000 in child support.
Of course the ugly irony is that earlier that week, FRC publicly prayed that God would keep gays from adopting children. So apparently being a gay father or a lesbian mother is a bad thing, but not paying your child support is a virtue.
But what gets me is Walsh’s response in receiving the award:
“I am proud and honored to be recognized by the Family Research Council as the only member from Illinois with a 100 percent pro-family voting record,” he said in a press release. “Defending American values have always been one of my top priorities, and this reward reaffirms my dedication to that fight.”
Yes, I know. Apparently paying for your children’s care isn’t an American value in Walsh’s book. Now allow me to tell you what will probably happen next.
The Family Research Council will either ignore this incredible faux pas on its part or respond much later after formulating some type of battle plan to explain away what it did.
Count on this battle plan to include one-sided articles in phony “pro-family” publications such as the American Family Association’s One News Now and appearances on “friendly” areas such as Fox News.
But above all, this battle plan will not include anything remotely looking like an apology or any type of acknowledgement that the organization goofed.
After all, the Family Research Council works for Jesus. And those who boast they work for Jesus never make goofs.
