Family Research Council

The Family Research Council, or FRC, is a conservative Christian group and lobbying organization formed in 1981 by James Dobson. The FRC promotes what it considers to be "traditional" family values, advocating and lobbying for socially conservative policies, especially those opposed to LGBT rights, abortion, divorce, and pornography. In 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center classified the FRC as an anti-gay hate group, and we'll show you why. According to the Family Research Council, homosexual conduct is harmful to society at large, and can never be affirmed. In February 2010, the Family Research Council's Senior Researcher for Policy Studies, Peter Sprigg, stated on NBC's Hardball that gay behavior should be outlawed and that "criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior should be enforced."
