The Family Research Council (FRC) is a long time opponent of gay rights and since the rulings against DOMA and Prop 8, they’ve been steadfast in getting their agenda heard. FRC plans to organize its first annual “Ex-Gay Pride Month” dinner in an attempt to promote “ex-gay” rights. The event is scheduled for the end of July and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has been extended an invitation as an honorable attendee.
The FRC also launched two new groups — Voice of the Voiceless, and Equality and Justice For All — to promote the proposed July 31 “Ex-Gay Pride Month.
“This will be a historic day for ex-gays across the country as we unite on Capitol Hill to lobby Congress to recognize former homosexuals,” Christopher Doyle, co-founder and president of Voice of the Voiceless, said in a press release. “Now that former homosexuals are a protected class against discrimination in Washington, D.C., this opens up the door for our unique stories to be heard and achievements recognized as we celebrate the First Annual Ex-Gay Pride Month!”
On its website, Voice of the Voiceless describes itself as acting on behalf of homosexuals who have changed their sexual orientation.
“The mission of Voice of the Voiceless is to defend the rights of former homosexuals, individuals with unwanted same-sex attraction and their families,” the website states. “We also support the faith-based community and work actively in the United States to defend the constitutional rights of all Americans to share their views of homosexuality in the public forum.”
Too bad they spelled Bachmann’s name wrong.
Voice of the Voiceless has written letters to President Obama asking that he issue a proclamation recognizing Ex-Gay Pride Month.
