I'm Gonna Hurl!

I've just read at (a terrific site) that the head of the Family Research Council, those bastions of family values and superior morals, have connections to white supremacists. Imagine! Why am I not surprised? If they want to deny Gay and Lesbian citizens rights now... why wouldn't they support groups that have a history of denying minority citizens their rights? The money quote:

Four years ago, Perkins [Tony Perkins, Head of the Family Research Council] addressed the Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), America's premier white supremacist organization, the successor to the White Citizens Councils, which battled integration in the South. In 1996 Perkins paid former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke $82,000 for his mailing list. At the time, Perkins was the campaign manager for a right-wing Republican candidate for the US Senate in Louisiana. The Federal Election Commission fined the campaign Perkins ran $3,000 for attempting to hide the money paid to Duke.

The depths that these people sink to are gargantuan. These are the so-called "Moral Majority". Disgraceful.
