FRC's Peter Sprigg is not happy with U2's Bono for celebrating Ireland's vote to legalize gay marriage. Speaking of FRC, the organization will be joining Sen. Mike Lee and others for a press conference next week to express their "deep concern about the potential loss of tax-exempt status for educational institutions should the Supreme Court find constitutional legitimacy for same-sex marriage." Another well-reasoned column from BarbWire's Gina Miller: "We have a man in the White House who has done more than any past president to push the... MORE >

Several years ago, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins strongly defended a Uganda bill, which at the time included a measure making homosexuality in some cases a capital offense. While the provision was dropped, the Ugandan government still increased the draconian penalties punishing people for being. So it came as no surprise that on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” FRC senior fellow Peter Sprigg — who once called for the U.S. to “ export homosexuals” — criticized Randy Berry, the Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LGBT...

Family Research Council spokesman Peter Sprigg defended sexual orientation conversion therapy yesterday by insisting that homosexuality is the result of “developmental issues in childhood and adolescence” such as “sexual abuse” and “poor bonding with a same-sex parent or peers.” Sprigg told his FRC colleague Craig James, who was guest hosting the group’s “Washington Watch” radio program, that “while same-sex attractions are not a sin, they are a temptation to sin and same-sex sexual conduct, homosexual conduct, is the sin.”...

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins invited his colleague Peter Sprigg on to “Washington Watch” yesterday to discuss an Idaho state legislative committee’s decision not to include protections for LGBT people in a proposed nondiscrimination law. Sprigg — who travelled to Idaho earlier this week to testify against the measure — celebrated the decision, saying that banning employment and housing discrimination against LGBT people “would increase the power of government to interfere with the operation of private businesses and private...

Family Research Council spokesmen Peter Sprigg and Craig James of the Family Research Council have an innovative new plan to promote limited government: pass a constitutional amendment regulating gender identity! On Monday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” James explained how transgender rights issues will likely be the next issue that the Religious Right will have to “combat in this war that we’re on with the LGBT community.” “I think the ideal policy for government with respect to [trans rights] is that your sex is your biological sex,” Sprigg...

Shortly after Russia passed its new spate of anti-gay laws, Glenn Beck said he was so offended by one Russian commentator who called for the mass killing of gays and lesbians that he would “stand with GLAAD” against the growing tide of anti-gay bigotry and “hetero-fascism” in the country. At the same time, however, Beck was heaping praise on anti-gay activists such as Mat Staver, the Liberty Counsel attorney who endorsed draconian anti-gay laws in Russia and Malawi. Then, this weekend, Beck took the same stand against growing Russian “hetero-fascism”... MORE >
