Joe Jervis at Joe.My.God has posted documentation that shows Tony Perkins' Family Research Council paid thousands and lobbied Congress against passing a resolution that condemns Uganda's extreme Anti Homosexuality Bill, which would execute those convicted of "aggravated homosexuality."
"According to the FRC's official lobbying report for the first quarter of 2010, they paid two of their henchmen $25,000 to lobby Congress against approving a resolution denouncing Uganda's plan to execute homosexuals. The resolution passed in the Senate on April 13th, but remains languishing in the House almost four months after being referred to the Foreign Affairs Committee. Did the FRC's lobbying kill it? As we learned last week with Malawi, international pressure CAN sway even the most virulently anti-gay government....Among the other items they lobbied against are the overturn of DADT and DOMA, which is to be expected. But it's almost astounding, almost, that they would lobby the members of Congress against denouncing the death penalty for LGBT people."
FRC's hatred of gays was already well established, but this new data point is extreme and outrageous. Perkins' should be confronted with his desire to kill gay people the next time he is on CNN. That should be any day now, since the network has chosen him as their go-to anti-gay talking head.
