FRC Didn’t Lobby Congress to Nix Uganda Resolution. Just to Make Sure It Included Hateful Rhetoric

The Family Research Council denies “inaccurate internet reports” claiming it spent $25,000 lobbying Congress to not approve a resolution condemning Uganda’s Kill The Gays bill.

“FRC did not lobby against or oppose passage of the congressional resolution,” the fantasy hate group led by Tony Perkins says in a statement. “FRC’s efforts, at the request of Congressional offices, were limited to seeking changes in the language of proposed drafts of the resolution, in order to make it more factually accurate regarding the content of the Uganda bill, and to remove sweeping and inaccurate assertions that homosexual conduct is internationally recognized as a fundamental human right. FRC does not support the Uganda bill, and does not support the death penalty for homosexuality — nor any other penalty which would have the effect of inhibiting compassionate pastoral, psychological and medical care and treatment for those who experience same-sex attractions or who engage in homosexual conduct.”

So there you have it: FRC didn’t lobby lawmakers to ditch the resolution. They just wanted to make sure elected officials placed hateful, misleading, and baiting language into the resolution.

It’s an amusing denial from FRC, whose own Peter Sprigg, the group’s policy studies senior fellow, has previously suggested exporting American homosexuals. Wouldn’t that inhibit “compassionate pastoral, psychological and medical care and treatment”? (Also, Sprigg is this guy. ‘Nough said.)

In the meantime, we’d love to know which “Congressional offices” are requesting FRC’s input on anything.

      How does someone with a full head of hair manage to sport a hairstyle that looks for all the world like a comb-over?

      The man’s look is as disgusting as his soul is.

      Also please note, FRC President Tony Perkins paid David Duke tens of thousands of dollars for his supporter list because he apparently thought that Duke voters would be supporters of him.
