Since its inception in 2006, the Values Voter Summit, sponsored by the Family Research Council, has never failed to deliver when it comes to anti-LGBT bile hurled during prime-time events by Republican presidential contenders. But this year's conference seemed a bit different.

This week, less than two weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the federal government cannot discriminate against legally married same-sex couples, the FRC circulated an online fundraising appeal that urges recipients to "Seize this Opportunity to Stop Tyranny in America!"

Peter Sprigg And The Values Victim Caucus

Having lost the culture war, the religious right's latest tactic is to falsely cast themselves as martyrs who are defending the faith and the right to free speech against an increasingly totalitarian majority. Perhaps the biggest crybaby is the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg.

An Abominable Abomination

Dr. Joe Wenke

I've found one case in which the use of the word "abomination" is entirely appropriate. It describes a level of bigotry, hatred and ignorance that stands apart. I'm talking about the Family Research Council, and it's also an abomination when CNN and MSNBC give them a platform.

We have truly entered a new era. Prior to the inauguration, the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council condemned any strides forward by the gay community, but now they have waved a magic wand to make our struggles disappear! It is so nice of them!

Family Research Council Attacks on SPLC Dishonest

Words do have consequences. But is the FRC's propaganda and schoolyard name-calling really the same thing as the SPLC listing the FRC as a hate group?

When Does The Free Exercise Of Religion Become Hate?

The problem with the FRC is that its positions aren't simply informed by Biblical principles. If the group's public policy work were limited to Biblically driven public policy advocacy and self-liberty interests, there would be little controversy about their place in our plural society's marketplace of ideas.

The Family Research Council's Dangerous Direct Mail

Wayne Besen | Posted 10.23.2012 | Gay Voices
Wayne Besen

The FRC is a legitimate hate group with a nasty habit of lying to demonize its foes. It is laughable to watch Perkins now try to play the role of moderate Christian. The shrill nature of his rhetoric appears designed to make his followers paranoid and believe their freedom is in jeopardy.

In my post last week, I stated that no one should be exploiting the tragic FRC shooting for political gain. That's why I and many others are greatly disappointed by the press conference you held last week, and I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to have a public discussion with me about hate.

Days Of Miracle And Wonder

"These are the days of miracle and wonder," sang Paul Simon in "The Boy in the Bubble." He wasn't talking about the quest for marriage equality, but I can't help but recall that line as the Family Research Council makes a harsh, desperate and inadvertently comical plea for a miracle of its own.

Family Research Council Pushes Mean-Spirited Video Against Marriage Equality And Gay Families

If you want to see all the inane arguments against marriage equality wrapped up in one video, check out this monstrosity from the Family Research Council. It peddles arguments that are easier to poke holes in than Kleenex, and more than that, it comes across as just plain mean.
