Family Research Council is designated as a Hate Group

by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Well, *DUH!*. They’ve been spewing really HATEFUL anti-queer propaganda for longer than I’ve been out (seriously!). While FRC has been busily scrubbing it’s web-site, John Aravosis long ago set up a website with some of their ravings.

Here’s just a sample:

The Family Research Council

Gays will recognize pedophiles as prophets

“…one of the primary goals of the homosexual rights movement is to abolish all age of consent laws and to eventually recognize pedophiles as the ‘prophets’ of a new sexual order.” – “Homosexual Activists Work to Normalize Sex With Boys,” FRC publication, July 1999, http://www.frc.org/misc/bl057.pdf

Gays are pedophiles, and want to promote youth promiscuity

“There is a strong undercurrent of pedophilia in the homosexual subculture. Homosexual activists want to promote the flouting of traditional sexual prohibitions at the earliest possible age….they want to encourage a promiscuous society – and the best place to start is with a young and credulous captive audience in the public schools.” – Robert Knight, Family Research Council, http://www.frc.org/insight/is93f1hs.html

Columbine killers might be gay/bisexual

“What Are The Media Hiding?….the media have been slow to give a full profile of the killers -avoiding any mention of their alleged bisexuality as reported by several students….Matt Drudge describes them in his report as ‘gay, jock-hating, confederate flag-wearing, goth rock & Marilyn Manson loving, white supremacist, fingernail polish wearing, Hitler birthday celebrating outcasts’….One student shortly after the attack said they were militant ‘gays’ who were retaliating against jocks. Another student said on NBC’s Today Show that the trench coat kids bragged about being bisexual… No American news outlet has reported that bi-sexuality could have played a part in the tragedy.” – FRC’s “CultureFacts”, April 21, 1999, http://www.frc.org/culture/cu99d3.html

Matt Shepard, and gays generally, will not inherit the kingdom of God

“homosexuals are included in a list of sinners, who, if unrepentant, will not inherit the kingdom of God.” – Family Research Council press release about Matt Shepard’s funeral, on the day of the funeral, October 16, 1998, http://www.frc.org/press/101698.html. The release implied that a gay person who had not yet become, or tried to become, an “ex-gay” was “unrepentant.”

Matt Shepard compared to a drunk

” ‘They create a climate and environment of intolerance and give license to those who seek to vent their rage or frustration on an entire community,’ Human Rights Campaign executive director Elizabeth Birch said Wednesday, addressing a Washington rally attended by the likes of actress Ellen DeGeneres and Alan Simpson, a Republican former senator from Wyoming. Ms. Farish vehemently rejects such allegations. ‘Don’t blame AA because a drunk was beat up,’ she said.” – Heather Farish of the Family Research Council, quoted in the Dallas Morning News article, “Why now? Other gays have been victims of brutal attacks, but the slaying of a Wyoming student has caused a national outcry,” by Brooks Egerton, October 17, 1998.

Gays are deviants

“Homosexuals have never been forced to sit in the back of the bus. They are as privileged a group as any. To compare their attempts to affirm deviant sexual conduct to the legitimate discrimination claims of true minorities is a sham,” said FRC Director of Cultural Studies Robert H.
Knight – FRC’s CultureFacts, July 28, 1999, http://www.frc.org/culture/cu99g4.html

…and so forth.

So, while these links to FRC’s hate speech no longer work, their history is pretty nasty. FRC is not exactly a model of Christian charity with their hateful lies.

For those of you with strong stomachs, please check it out.
