Family Research Council Prays Against LGBT Rights Effort

Yesterday Family Research Council senior fellow Peter Sprigg attacked the Obama administration’s call to protect LGBT people abroad from violence as an “unconscionable” promotion of “the radical ideology of the sexual revolution.” Today, the FRC is now even asking people to pray that God will urge Congress “to reject this Obama directive and all who carry it out,” citing the biblical story of Sodom (Gen 19:4-7) and Gibeah’s Crime (Judges 19:21-28). The group also encouraged Republicans to stop the reappointment of Ambassador Mari Carmon Aponte because she penned an op-ed in support of gay rights:

Exporting Homosexuality by Extortion — Senate Republicans say they will block the reappointment Mari Carmen Aponte as Ambassador to El Salvador because of her insensitive public promotion of homosexuality in a nation whose culture rejects the practice. Yesterday, President Obama issued a directive making official what insiders say is already been the norm in practice — using foreign aid to advance the homosexual agenda in all countries that reject the practice. Insiders say the State Department has privately been withholding aid from countries that will not go along with the LGBT agenda (Obama Directive, Aponte).

May Congress step up to reject this Obama directive and all who carry it out (Gen 19:4-7; Judges 19:21-28; 1 Kg 14:24; Pr 4:14-17; Ec 8:11; Is 57:20; Eze 22:6-12).
