“Ambassador J. Kenneth “Ken” Blackwell is an author and senior fellow for human rights and constitutional governance at the Family Research Council.”
I am asking well learned men with sound reputations to help me form a PUBLIC TRIBUNAL and examine all the Traitors who signed the Insurrectionist Exoneration Letter. The whole Free World wants to know why a Black Man, who fought for Civil Rights, did every underhanded thing to take away the power of the LGBTQ community – and destroy them! Blackwell knows about LYNCHIG!
President Biden is sending billions of dollars in weaponry to combat the fierce homophobic mania of Putin, and his Killer Holy Man – Kirill. Blackwell needs to be asked this question…
“Have you ever looked favorably upon Putin’s Anti-Gay Crusade? Do you know who Kirill is, and do you agree with some of the things he says?”
I beseech foreign nations help me in this investigation of HOMOPHOBIC MANIACS in sheep’s clothing. Never forget….Democrats, and the former Vice President of the United States – did nothing wrong!
Family Research Council (FRC) is an American evangelical activist group and think-tank with an affiliated lobbying organization. FRC promotes what it considers to be family values. It opposes and lobbies against: access to pornography, embryonic stem-cell research, abortion, divorce, and LGBT rights (such as anti-discrimination laws, same-sex marriage, same-sex civil unions, and LGBT adoption). The FRC has been criticized by media sources and professional organizations such as the American Sociological Association for using “anti-gay pseudoscience” to falsely conflate homosexuality and pedophilia, and falsely to claim that the children of same-sex parents suffer from more mental health problems.
The Family Research Council holds the belief that “homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed”, and asserts that it is “by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects.” The Council also asserts that “there is no convincing evidence that a homosexual identity is ever something genetic or inborn”. These positions are in opposition to the consensus of mainstream psychological and medical experts that homosexuality is a normal, healthy variation of human behavior, and that sexual orientation is generally not chosen.
2010 listing as a hate group by SPLC
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated FRC as a hate group in the winter 2010 issue of its magazine, Intelligence Report. Aside from statements made earlier in the year by Sprigg and Perkins (see Statements on homosexuality), the SPLC described FRC as a “font of anti-gay propaganda throughout its history”.
