The Unsurprisingly Bigoted Results of the Family Research Council’s Own Military Family Survey

Still pissing in the wind, the Family Research Council “today renewed its criticism of the process which led to the release today of a report by the Pentagon’s Comprehensive Review Working Group (CRWG) on the issue of open homosexuality in the military.” Tony Perkins, who relies on his status as a Marine veteran to excuse his hatemongering, wants Congress to “hold extensive hearings.” It’s as if Perkins and John McCain are exchanging little love notes during class.

Meanwhile, together with the Center for Security Policy, FRC released its own poll of military families that claims 63 percent do not want gays serving openly in the military — a stat, the Palm Center points out, that includes the families of troops that are retired or otherwise inactive, thus skewing older. And asshole-ier.
