Anti-Gay Group Posts Their DOMA & Prop 8 Reactions Before SCOTUS Has Ruled

By: Monday June 24, 2013 10:40 pm

The nation remains in suspense as another Monday has passed without the release of opinions by the U.S. Supreme Court on the DOMA and Proposition 8 cases.  The anti-gay group Family Policy Institute of Washington is done with waiting, apparently, because it has already posted three responses to the unreleased opinions. FPIW was one of [...]

Hate Group Wants Congress to Investigate the Southern Poverty Law Center

By: Monday June 24, 2013 7:49 am

Last week, I received the following money plea email from the Family Research Council: The secret is out. The Obama administration has joined forces with perhaps the most anti-Christian organization in America today — the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). By making reckless accusations against those who stand for biblical morality, the SPLC has incited [...]

The Family Research Council’s sad attempt to attach gay equality to the DOJ leak story

By: Thursday May 23, 2013 7:48 am

This is just pathetic. Apparently the Family Research Council is attempting to attach gay equality to the Department of Justice leak story: When the Justice Department is done violating journalists’ First Amendment rights, it looks like they’ll move on to employees’. In a chilling memo to DOJ staff, the Obama administration is warning managers that [...]

Family Research Council Won’t Publicly Repudiate Anti-gay Violence

By: Wednesday May 22, 2013 11:14 am

In the wake of the hate-motivated murder last week of Mark Carson in New York City’s Greenwich Village — just one in a string of anti-transgender and anti-gay hate crimes plaguing the city, LGBT rights activist Scott Wooledge challenged LGBT rights opponents to repudiate the violence: LGBT rights orgs have been very clear violence will [...]

What Megyn Kelly, Tony Perkins, and Fox News won’t tell you about the Family Research Council

By: Thursday April 25, 2013 8:22 pm

The Family Research Council has released footage of the FBI questioning Floyd Corkins, the shooter who targeted the organization last year.  In this footage, Corkins says that he saw FRC listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Translation by FRC and its supporters will be that SPLC led Corkins to go [...]

Family Research Council defends Republican’s outdated propaganda against lgbt community

By: Wednesday April 3, 2013 7:49 am

As if it’s a surprise to anyone, the Family Research Council is rushing to support Dave Agema, the Michigan Republican leader who is facing a firestorm for putting outdated anti-gay propaganda on his Facebook page. Last week, Agema posted on his Facebook page something called Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuality, a vicious anti-gay [...]

Family Research Council clearly lying about scientific evidence and gay parenting

By: Friday March 8, 2013 7:19 am

“The Family Research Council and other so-called “pro-family” groups can’t use facts against the gay community, so they hope to beat us down through the constant repetition of lies.” I’ve said it once and I will say it again. Once the religious right finds a factoid or meme to use against the lgbt community, they [...]

Family Research Council resurrects old claim attacking same-sex families

By: Tuesday March 5, 2013 7:45 am

For whatever reason, the Family Research Council has decided to resurrect the distortive story of supposedly what will happen if marriage equality is declared legal throughout the country, i.e. children will be “taught” about homosexuality. Those who are familiar with how the right distorts this claim should know just who are the stars of the [...]

Family Research Council pushes meanspirited video against marriage equality, gay families

By: Tuesday February 26, 2013 7:28 am

If you want to see all of the inane arguments against marriage equality wrapped up in one video, check out the above monstrosity from the Family Research Council. It is a four minute rush of almost every anti-gay point, every anecdotal horror story, and every lame argument against marriage equality. The gist of the video [...]

Video exposes religious right’s talent for anti-gay misdirection, omission

By: Tuesday February 19, 2013 7:47 am

This hideously bad video is by former Family Research Council intern Anna Maria Hoffman and she wants us to “stop the hate” of those who support so-called traditional marriage. Though it was excruciating to watch, especially the couple of seconds (Girlfriend can’t sing. Not a lick!), her attempt to outline the point of view of [...]
