Family Research Council wants to scare the money from your pockets

In its latest fundraising letter, the Family Research Council left no stone unturned, no fear unexploited, and no lie untold:

I recently wrote you a letter asking you to help FRC seize what I believe is a God-given opportunity -- an open door to stop a rapidly encroaching tyranny in America.

If you haven't yet responded to my letter, I hope you will take a moment to give now.
You see, the scandals that have exploded within the administration of President Barack Obama have the potential to wake up Americans -- and Congress -- to the attack on freedom that is at the core of this administration.

Is it really "tyranny"? You be the judge:
  • American families are being forced by ObamaCare to buy health insurance they don't want . . . and which will lead to rationing for the weak and elderly.
  • Christians are being forced to buy ObamaCare insurance that funds abortion drugs.
  • The IRS has been caught harassing and bullying a growing number of groups, including ministries -- for the "offense" of opposing the Obama agenda.
  • Obama awarded the IRS official in charge of the harassment with a promotion and $103,900 bonus.
  • The Department of Justice has been caught spying on news reporters.
  • The Department of Defense has been caught persecuting Christians.
  • The Department of State has been caught covering up the Benghazi scandal and punishing dissident officials trying to blow the whistle.
  • Federal officials have stated that homosexual rights will supersede religious rights.
That's just a sample -- and why I need you to give now to help FRC stop this tyranny.
We have a God-given opportunity we must seize now . . .

It goes for a few more paragraphs until ending with not a Biblical verse, but telling you where to find a Biblical verse.

Talk about lazy.

You think after spinning all of that fear, FRC would at least tell its followers to do some praying. The organization doesn't even do that.

I miss the days when supposed religious folks didn't try to scare you about the government in order to pull the money from your pockets:

Well, inasmuch as the "Family Research Council" has done NO research of the family, and is ineffective in every regard, people who truly want salvation should send all of their money to me and I will, with no pre-conceived agenda, pray for their salvation a full 3.578 hours every day, and the prayers I pray for them will be sent by hot air balloon into the nether for delivery directly to their deity-floating-on-a-cloud every evening at 7:13 GMT, unless the weather forecast calls for winds of over 3.89 knots, as that would cause the balloons to be delivered to Iceland, and would take another 2.16 days to be re-routed to the deity-floating-on-a-clouds new cloud location. SAVE TIME. USE NO INTERMEDIARIES. SEND YOUR DONATIONS DIRECTLY TO ME.
