Hate Group FRC and Minnesota Family Council Push For Gay Marriage Ban
The Family Research Council (FRC) and the Minnesota Family Council will begin a new push next week to ban gay marriage in Minnesota, the Minnesota Independent reported.
The groups’ Minnesota Family and Marriage Summit will focus on getting an amendment that defines marriage as a heterosexual union on the ballot in 2012.
FRC senior researcher Peter Sprigg will helm a course titled “What’s the harm in same-sex marriage?”
Sprigg’s comments on MSNBC’s Hardball were cited by the Southern Poverty Law Center as good enough to put the FRC on its list of known hate groups.
In February 2010, Sprigg told host Chris Matthews that “gay behavior” should be criminalized.
Here’s the video where Sprigg said gay behavior should be criminalized (start at 8:40):
