The Family Research Council is at it again with their anti-LGBT focus.  In their “get America back” campaign, three of the four fundraising points are anti-LGBT.  The post-election pitch claiming, “truth will win out” (*sigh*), aims to

-Prevent radical homosexual activists from further harming the U.S. military.

-Compel the Department of Justice to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.

-Challenge the provisions of ObamaCare which undermine families.

-Stop the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). 

Now, none of this is really surprising especially considering that it’s coming from the Family Research Council.  It’s important to be aware of the current anti-LGBT movements so that something can be done about it.  Here’s how I feel about each thing above:

-The American Family Council should be thankful that anybody is willing to serve in the military, regardless of their sexual orientation. GAH!

-Luckily, the recent elections led to gay marriage becoming legal in more states. YAY!

-I’m pretty sure one of the main reasons for their agenda against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is the absence of co-pay for birth control, which I luckily benefit from.  (And for the last time, ObamaCare does not cover abortions.)  Also, if you’re going to speak out against something, at least use good grammar.

-Do I even need to say anything about ENDA? If your coworker is gay, so the fuck what?

I don’t have much more to say other than I’m tired of stupid fundraising for stupid organizations that have stupid, nonsensical agendas.
