The Family Research Council is a right wing organization that helps few families and does virtually no research. It is an extremist group founded by Focus on the Family to lobby Congress to pass anti-gay legislation. The organization, Americans United, exposed that FRC has already sent out an ugly direct mail campaign attacking Obama - before he is even in office!
Just as these radical organizations tried to destroy Bill Clinton - they are now trying to undermine Obama. What is unseemly, is that they have begun their direct mail smear campaigns even before the guy has had a chance to offend them. It seems to me that they want to sabotage the office of the presidency every time a Democrat gets elected. How patriotic is that?
The pro-American thing to do would be to give the guy at least a month to succeed before hurling toxins into the political environment. While Obama works to bring this nation together, Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council look to divide us and tear America apart.
And these guys talk about morality?
I think Wayne put it best in "Anything But Straight": the religious right has NO morals (emphasis mine).

Yes the word "scoundrels" was invented for these types of people. You know, I have more respect for a guy like Fred Phelps who ADMITS outright that he simply "hates fags", than these people who hate America and our Constitution and yet pretend to be God-fearing patriots, when all they are is a bunch of small-minded bigots and ignoramuses.

HAHAHA, at least Phelps makes no bones about it, right? He's a crazy, nasty bigoted S.O.B. who hates "fags" in no uncertain terms and doesn't care who knows it.
I for one am tired of constantly hearing some folks say that they "love us" and then immediately proceeding to the ballot box to vote our rights out of existence. Kinda like Sarah Palin saying, on this very subject, that she "would never tell someone who they can be with" and, in the next breath, saying, "Yes, I would indeed support a Federal constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage."
I mean, they should just be honest. They should just admit that they don't like us, they don't want us to be welcomed into the circle of humanity, and they're going to do whatever they can to fight us. After all, that's exactly how I feel about them; I simply can't stand them or the very sight of them!

Beings Tony Perkins was one of the few people pushing for the forced execution of gay people in the 80's, I'm actually surprised he isn't pelted with glass bottles each time he steps onto a stage.
Tiffany Jewelry has always been the favourite of so many people, because it looks so beautiful, elegant, and noblest and so on. It has a variety of famous brands, also has different kinds of styles. Everyone is different, so that has different tastes. We can choose the jewelry we loved. It mainly accord to our own trait. I like cheap Tiffany jewelry, especially love tiffany earrings very much. Not only because of its gorgeous, have fashion, but also I felt it is suitable for me. So I want to buy any my ideal Tiffany and I like buying Tiffany necklace most. In my opinion, Tiffany jewelry is most beautiful and is suitable for all kinds of people. You can find your any style from Tiffany accessories such as cheap Tiffany bracelets.
