Does The FRC Know Something The "Homosexual Left" Doesn't?
Danger Will Robinson! Danger! The Family Research Council (FRC) is warning the sheeple that passage of the repeal of the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) is imminent! Money needs to be raised to combat that evil!
From the FRC e-blast, ominously entitled Special Alert–Marriage in Danger!:
The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is in danger. Liberals in Congress are moving forward right now to repeal this essential federal law that:
Defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and . . .
Permits states to disregard the validity of homosexual “marriages” conducted in other states
If DOMA falls, it will be catastrophic for America, for the values taught to our children, and for your freedom as a Christian because The homosexual Left will be able to bring the weight of the federal government down on anyone who refuses to go along with counterfeit marriage and the rest of the homosexual “rights” campaign.
Are you going to surrender to the homosexual agenda?
If you’re ready to stand for marriage, I urge you to support Family Research Council (FRC) with a generous gift to advance this central fight for marriage in America, for the family, and for your religious liberty. I’m excited to report that a family will double your gift up to $150,000!
FRC has been at the forefront of this battle for 27 years. Our efforts were essential in developing DOMA and making–along with our allies–its passage possible in 1996. It was a strategic victory for pro-family conservatives.
Ever since, DOMA has been under attack by the powerful homosexual lobby, in lockstep with their liberal allies on Capitol Hill and in the mainstream media. Now they’re running full speed ahead to reach their goal.
The pace began picking up last year when President Obama signed a federal “hate crimes” law. Then came his renewed assault on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and most recently his nomination of the pro-homosexual activist Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.
And just last week an activist federal judge in Massachusetts declared unconstitutional the federal definition of “marriage”–the union of one man and one woman. He added that “it is only irrational prejudice that motivates the [traditional definition of marriage].”
The Obama Justice Department has not done its duty to defend DOMA aggressively. In fact, it appears that while Solicitor General at Justice, Elena Kagan undermined DOMA in various cases and made deliberately weak legal defenses. Imagine what she’d do with a lifetime appointment to the highest court!
When you put all those pieces together, it’s an amazing attack on America’s moral foundations!
The definition of marriage belongs to God. And I will not give up the fight to advance what God has created and what sustains a healthy society.

Wow! DOMA is going to passed and signed by the President really, really soon! Er…right?
Um, yeah. Legislation important to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community is going nowhere this congressional session — and probably next session as well — and it’s extremely difficult for me to believe that the FRC doesn’t know that.
So, this is religious right conservatives fleecing their own sheeple with one of those scary messages they are so good at putting out to their people.
Maybe our LGBT civil rights organizations could get together and release a statement to the effect of:
“Don’t worry, religious right sheeple. Tony Perkins is selling you a line of unadulterated manure — President Obama couldn’t be less interested in repealing DOMA anytime soon than you know. Your fear-mongering, reactionary, religious right organizations — such as the Family Research Council — are attempting to fleece you of your hard-earned cash in this wobbly economy for legislation that our President and this Congress doesn’t actually plan to act upon.”
