Tony Perkins is calling upon activists to donate to the Family Research Council’s political arm, FRC Action, in order to help stop “anti-family forces.” Perkins describes FRC’s work in trying to preserve the Defense of Marriage Act and stop marriage equality and the “forced indoctrination” of students. He also brags about the organization’s influence within the House GOP and warns of looming “death panels” as a result of the health care reform law. Later this year, FRC Action will host the 2011 Values Voter Summit, with GOP leaders like Rick Santorum, Eric Cantor, Ken Cuccinelli and Steve King, along with activists Mat Staver, William Boykin, Bill Bennett, Brent Bozell and Gary Bauer, already scheduled to speak.
Perkins writes to members:
Just days ago after Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) successfully forced the Navy to do an about face on same-sex marriage on naval installations, he credited the FRC Action team for bringing attention to this unlawful directive.
This is just one example of the crucial work our team does day in and day out on Capitol Hill and in the media around the country.
So I hope friends like you respond to our need for funds. Pro-family members of Congress are depending on FRC Action like never before. We cannot do “less than enough” to support them. Here’s why . . . Doing “less than enough” can mean America gets ObamaCare and “death panels” rather than compassionate health care from conception to natural death.
“Less than enough” can mean we get homosexual “marriage” and the forced indoctrination of our children by homosexual activists in classrooms.
“Less than enough” can mean we get an out-of-control Washington elite who keeps spending our children’s money on bigger government and saddling them with a mountain of debt.
I know you’re a pro-family champion who simply isn’t willing to settle for “less than enough.”
