FRC's Tony Perkins Gloats Over DADT Vote, Asks For More Anti-Gay Money
"I don't often get to write to you on the heels of a thrilling, public victory. FRC's strategic team and your prayers and financial support won the day! Yesterday afternoon, the Senate voted down the Defense Authorization Bill -- with its candy box of treats for radical liberals. The outrageous amendments to the bill included repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell and turning every military installation into an abortion clinic. This is a victory for the men and women who serve our nation in uniform--at least for now they will not be used to advance a radical social agenda. The Wall Street Journal credited FRC with '[leading] the opposition to a repeal.'
"Friends, FRC needs your renewed support urgently. FRC's fiscal year closes on September 30. This is a critical milestone for us, because our financial status at the end of the fiscal year will determine how much we can grow and accomplish in the next year. We have $1.1 million remaining to raise. It's important for you to know that FRC doesn't spend what we don't have. We have very conservative financial management. We won't go into debt in order to fight pivotal battles like Don't Ask, Don't Tell. We don't have any endowment or large reserves. Together, we can accomplish more victories like today's win in the Senate. Donate today!" - Family Research Council head bigot Tony Perkins, getting happy with the Lord over crushing the civil rights of fellow Americans.
