Peter Sprigg exposes his anti-gay group’s hypocrisy again

By: Thursday January 17, 2013 8:10 am

Perhaps the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg should quit while he is ahead. As he continues  to milk the recent controversy involving Pastor Louie Giglio – whose  inauguration invitation to give the benediction was rescinded due to past anti-gay sermons he preached – he opens himself and FRC up for scrutiny. Which, of course, is [...]

Religious right FURIOUS over inauguration controversy

By: Friday January 11, 2013 7:49 am

Because of the controversy involving Obama’s inauguration and the pastor (Louie Giglio) whose invitation was rescinded because of his anti-gay feelings, the religious right has a new victimhood spin. According to the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins: What a difference four years makes! In 2009, when the Left was in an uproar about Pastor Rick [...]

Family Research Council, NOM caught in lies about gay parenting study

By: Friday December 14, 2012 8:00 am

I have talked about how the religious right distorts legitimate studies to attack the gay community.  There have been many times in which this has happened. And recent came another one. From the Family Research Council: According to a new study, having two married parents may be the best educational advantage you can give your [...]

Tony Perkins salutes gay persecution while his group cries about Christian persecution

By: Tuesday November 27, 2012 7:28 am

Check out this nauseating tweet from the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins: What Perkins is referring to is the Ugandan anti-gay bill which would give persecute people in that country simply for being gay. This awful bill may pass the Ugandan Parliament very soon. When it initially introduced, the bill contained a provision for the [...]

Sorry religious right, but the gay community isn’t buying what you are selling

By: Wednesday November 14, 2012 7:53 am

As far as I am concerned, it’s always a good thing when religious right figures trot their hypocrisies out in the public square. My only concern is that we as a community don’t take advantage of this more. Take former Family Research Council head Janet Parshall for example: The above excerpt is from a ridiculous [...]

Hate group doesn’t have the guts to sue Dan Savage

By: Friday October 5, 2012 7:33 am

It seems that Dan Savage has started a war with Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council. Recently, Savage said the following: “every dead gay kid is a victory for the Family Research Council” and that “Tony Perkins sits on a pile of dead gay kids every day when he goes to work” While I [...]

Peter Sprigg is further proof of the Family Research Council’s ‘hate group’ status

By: Friday September 28, 2012 7:43 am

Poor Family Research Council. They just can’t lay off the Southern Poverty Law Center. FRC is still sore over being designated as a hate group by SPLC. Personally, I like it when FRC or one the organization’s phony experts attack SPLC because it gives me the opportunity to demonstrate yet again their hypocrisy. Today, FRC [...]

NOM’s Brian Brown has trouble defending Family Research Council lies

By: Sunday August 19, 2012 1:38 pm

There is no question that the National Organization for Marriage is milking the outcry over Wednesday’s shooting at the Family Research Council in a sad attempt to attack the Southern Poverty Law Center. However, watch what happens when Brown is confronted during an interview on CNN with statements made by the Family Research Council in [...]

Southern Poverty Law Center responds to ‘license to kill’ charge by FRC’s Tony Perkins

By: Thursday August 16, 2012 5:43 pm

Sadly, Family Research Council’s honcho Tony Perkins took to the media today in an attempt to discredit the Southern Poverty Law Center’s accurate assessment of FRC as a hate group, charging that the organization gave shooter Floyd Corkins a license to shoot the security guard at its building in DC. SPLC responds - with facts: Yesterday’s [...]

Shooting at the Family Research Council – ALL violence (physical and spiritual) must be condemned

By: Wednesday August 15, 2012 8:42 pm

By now, you have probably heard what happened today at the headquarters of the Family Research Council. Earlier today, a 28-year-old man came in pretending to be an intern. On his person, he had two guns. The security guard fought him and kept him from fully using these guns, at the expense of getting wounded. [...]
