Flashback to 2008: FRC’s Sprigg: ‘we think homosexuality is destructive to society’

This morning, I posted a video of a CNN debate between Servicemember United’s Alex Nicholson and Peter Sprigg, from the hate group, Family Research Council. Alex always does an excellent job. But, I think we need a new rule that no LGBT advocate should ever have to sit next to anyone from a hate group. As we’ve seen from the Prop. 8 trial and the DADT debate, the only thing the other side has is its hatred and homophobia. It’s hard to understand why haters even get a platform on the non-FOX cable networks.

Jeremy Hooper sent me this classic video of Sprigg stating that he’d “much prefer to export homosexuals from the United States than import them into the United States because we think homosexuality is destructive to society.” Sprigg and his ilk are so outside of the mainstream, their nothing but extreme. And, this wasn’t some statement dredged up from the 70s. He said it on March 19, 2008. If the traditional news types need an example of why FRC has been designated a hate group, watch this:

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
