The Family Research Council, established by James Dobson and headed up by Gary Bauer until Tony Perkins took the helm, is one of those of "family values" conservative lobbying groups whose membership the GOP clown car candidates have been courting so desperately. Perkins and his organization is on speed-dial at the Bush White House.
FRC gets my quote of the day award for this gem....
In Rhode Island, a same-sex couple married in Massachusetts is seeking a divorce; because their marriage was not recognized in R.I., when they filed for divorce, it is now in the courts to decide whether it can be dissolved there.
FRC decided to weigh in on the matter by filing a brief to argue that the marriage cannot be recognized (even though there is no law in R.I. banning same-sex marriage), citing this unhinged thinking:"Following the logic of the appellants and their supporters, man/animal marriage and man/deceased woman marriage must be permitted under Rhode Island law simply because the General Assembly has not expressly prohibited it."Tony and Co., when you are able to explain how animals and corpses can grant consent to enter a union of any kind, please let us know.
I'd love to hear the GOP candidates comment on this kind of rhetoric coming from one of its allies in the fight to restore family values to this great nation.
Perkins, by the way, gets bonus family values points for having paid $82K to David DuKKKe for his mailing list - from Pam:
AmTaliban Tony Perkins paid David Duke $82K for mailing list
While the AmTaliban forces like Family Research Council is reaching out to black pastors, bringing them into the evangelical fold by railing against the civilization-destroying homos, it isn't sharing some pertinent information about FRC exec Tony Perkins. It seems that family-oriented, pious Tony paid former KKK Wizard, cosmetic-surgery-enhanced, self-proclaimed head of the "European American" movement, David Duke, $82K for his mailing list of affinity knuckledraggers in 1996.
Why has no one, especially these courted black pastors, called FRC on this low-rent white supremacist co-mingling by Perkins?
