FRC Lies About Support for Uganda Anti-Gay Bill

Jeremy Hooper catches Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council lying through his teeth about the FRC’s support for Uganda’s famous “kill the gays” bill. On the organization’s radio show he claims that “we did not support the Uganda law.” Here’s the audio:

Jeremy then shows the video of one of Tony Perkins’ weekly commentaries from April, 2012, in which he criticized President Obama for criticizing that Uganda law, saying that the law was important to “uphold moral conduct.”

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.
