Among the most obsessed anti-gay activists, lies die hard.
The Minnesota Family Council (MFC) — an independent affiliate of both the Family Research Council and the more-moderate Focus on the Family — was one of the most prominent proponents of a state referendum to constitutionally outlaw same-sex marriage. After the state Legislature’s May 21 vote to place the referendum on the ballot, MFC President Tom Prichard told the media he hoped that Minnesotans could hold a “respectful discussion” about the issue that wouldn’t get “personal.”
Prichard, evidently, hoped LGBT people and their advocates wouldn’t take personally the fact that his organization was spreading vicious falsehoods about them. Bloggers quickly revealed the existence of a “legislative handbook” on the MFC’s website claiming, among other things, that “the homosexual population includes a disproportionate number of pedophiles,” that “some homosexuals have become urolagniacs (ingesting urine and feces) and engage in bestiality as well as other deviant behaviors,” and that LGBT people are abnormal and disordered — all claims that have been roundly rejected by credible scholarly researchers. The handbook also advocated the removal of “sexual orientation” from the state’s Human Rights Act, asserted that “[t]here is no evidence that a significant number of homosexuals are being discriminated against,” and recommended that a “religious and conscientious objector” clause should be added to the law — evidently to allow Christians to ignore the legally protected human rights of LGBT people.
