    As in the "Family Research Council" headed by Tony Perkins himself. What many people don't know is that Tony was a buddy of David Duke's, the KKK leader who once tried for a career in public office (and got something like one-third of the vote in Louisiana), even buying Duke's mailing list in the mid-90s when Perkins was a legislative aide (the campaign for which he worked was later fined for trying to hide the purchase). Perkins went on to speak to at least one "Concerned Citizens" council, which are the modern-day descendants of the pro-segregation White Citizens' Councils of the 50s and 60s.

    Perkins, through the FRC, has been instrumental in building linkages between African-American churches and the anti-gay hate movement. We need to expose this kind of thing whenever they try the wedge strategy.
