Duggar Family Member Joins Anti-Gay Family Research Council


When 19 Kids and Counting, the show about the amazingly fertile Duggar clan, returns to TLC on April 2, eldest son Josh Duggar will have some great news for his family: He got a job—with the anti-LGBT Family Research Council!

Josh (center) has been given a senior executive position, according to sources inside the rabidly homophobic org, which has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Buzzfeed reports:

Duggar will be in charge of FRC Action, the organization’s lobbying arm, sources told BuzzFeed.

“FRC Action (formerly American Renewal), the non-profit and tax-exempt legislative action arm of Family Research Council, was founded in 1992 to educate the general public and cultural leaders about traditional American values and to promote the philosophy of the Founding Fathers concerning the nature of ordered liberty,” according to FRC Action’s website.

Here are some of FRC’s greatest hits:

“While activists like to claim that pedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. … It is a homosexual problem.” — FRC President Tony Perkins

“[W]elcoming open homosexuality in the military would clearly damage the readiness and effectiveness of the force – in part because it would increase the already serious problem of homosexual assault in the military.” —FRC senior fellow Peter Sprigg

“Gaining access to children has been a long-term goal of the homosexual movement.” — Robert Knight, FRC director of cultural studies

We suppose we can’t get too angry at Josh, though: he and his wife just announced they’re expecting their third child, and babies don’t pay for themselves.

Well, not until they get you a reality show, anyway.
