(Washington D.C.) Ucs News: In a joint press conference the Family Research Council and the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan officially joined forces to launch a new “season of Hate” campaign against gay and Lesbians. FRC President Tony Perkins linked arms with KKK Imperial Wizard Ron Edwards and proclaimed, “It’s time the gay agenda was destroyed in the name of our God and Country.”
While our nations Gays and Lesbians continue their march toward equality and fully civil rights, there are many set to stop or reverse their progress. In 2010, the Family Research Council was classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. FRC President Tony Perkins dismissed the hate group designation as the result of a political attack by a “liberal organization” and stated “we share teh same views as our friends in the KKK so we are happy the Southern Poverty Law Center has grouped us with our friends.
The FRC promotes socially conservative views on many issues, including divorce, homosexuality, and abortion. It does not limit itself to social conservatism, also promoting a variety of other views including a hawkish foreign policy, lower taxes and discrimination against gays and Lesbians.
