THE RIGHT ON RIGHTS

WATCH: FRC Blasts Obama, Claims Gays Already Have Same Civil Rights As Everyone Else

Peter Sprigg crawled out from under the moist stone the Family Research Council calls home and joined CNN‘s Soledad O’Brien to take a dump reflect on President Obama’s historic call to action on LGBT civil rights.

“We as social conservatives do not agree with the president’s attempt to link the modern homosexual movement with the women’s rights movement or the civil rights movement for African Americans,” said the FRC senior fellow. “The irony is that homosexuals already have all the same civil rights as anyone else.”

Sprigg clearly has a working knowledge of irony akin to Alanis Morissette as his group actively tries to deny the “homosexuals” those “same civil rights.” Ah, it’s like rain on your gay wedding day, isn’t it Sprigg?

Sprigg’s brother in bigotry, National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown, expressed similar views on NOM’s blog: “Gay and lesbian people are already treated equally under the law. They have the same civil rights as anyone else; they have the right to live as they wish and love whom they choose. What they don’t have is the right to redefine marriage for all of society.”

Aside from the marriage debate, both Sprigg and Brown seem to have never heard of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, since LGBT people can still be fired based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. And if that’s being treated equally under the law, well the scales need some balancing.

      The “Party of No” hasn’t any reason to meet the President on common ground. They will redistrict themselves into power and bypass the will of the people. The GOP hasn’t been fair for years, so why would this change now?

      What he left out is the fact that “Social Conservatives” ALSO fought against women’s and African American’s civil rights.

      Same rights? Like hell, if my a marriage to my partner would be recongnized, I would be getting a refund $2,000 more; but i have to file as single. Also, the medical benefits we received for him by my employeer are added as income. Do not see that happening with the str8 married employees.
