Wow! Check out this in-depth analysis of the FRC by John Aravosis. Aravosis examines the Family Research Council , a stalwart of the Religious Right, to see exactly what they do that results in FRC being identified, accurately, as a hate group akin to the KKK.
Why the Family Research Council is a hate group
Because they lie.
And they know they lie.
And they don’t care.
And they’ve been doing it for twenty years.
And when I say “lie,” I dont’ mean the standard Washington, DC version of a “lie,” which is basically calling a lie anything you disagree with (aka, your facts hurt me so I’m simply going to call you a liar). I mean, an organization that decided early on that “the gay menace” was such a threat to American life that if it had to deceive the American people in order to convince them that gays were the anti-Christ, then so be it.
And for any journalist, like the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, who claims otherwise, suggesting that the Family Research Council is simply a “mainstream conservative” group, I’d ask them to do some original research on the anti-gay literature that the Family Research Council publishes, and the anti-gay pseudo-science that FRC “cites” on TV, before weighing in on a topic about which they know very little.
