Sprigg Discusses the Numbers of Homosexuals in America
FRC’s Peter Sprigg was quoted in The Denver Post regarding the numbers of homosexuals in America. There seems to be some debate on the numbers, and as Sprigg states:
"I think serious data on this is important to inform the debate...People have an exaggerated view of how many homosexuals there are in the population. They don't realize what a relatively small population it is."
General Boykin Addresses the Nomination of Brennan to CIA
In yesterday’s press conference featured on American Thinker’s website, FRC’s Executive Vice President, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (Ret.-USA), joined security experts to address the nomination of John Brennan as the director of the CIA (17:00-20:07). General Boykin states that:
“My concern is that John Brennan is not a man that has demonstrated that he truly understands the full magnitude of the threats against this nation today. His unwillingness to recognize that the Muslim Brotherhood is operating in America and poses an existential threat to our Constitution and consequently to our freedoms and liberty I think disqualifies him. It was John Brennan who forced the purging of some very accurate information in the FBI’s curriculum that talked about what the Koran and Hadith say about the basic tenants of the Islamic religion, but more importantly the aspects of Islam that deal with their geo-political system, their determination to perform jihad, their financial system, and their legal system called Sharia.”
Why the Family Research Council Has Not Supported the Nomination of Chuck Hagel
FRC was quoted in a recent Huffington Post article because of their disappointment in the nomination of Chuck Hagel. Hagel has not been supportive of the state of Israel and as FRC stated:
“Students of Bible prophecy have said that amid America's declining American faith and morals, our support for Israel has slowed the advance of God's judgment since 2001. But each step we take farther away from Israel has repercussions with respect to that balance.”
