Family Research Council sends out pitiful attack email on DADT

Regardless of how the vote goes on DADT (keep your fingers crossed) we are a long way from the mid 90s when a reserved soldier who attended college with me told me that he opposed lgbts serving openly in the military because of how gay men supposedly shove fists up their rectums.

Naturally some on the right are fighting the repeal, including the Family Research Council with this below pitiful effort:

Dear Alvin,

With the economy still in the doldrums, and a massive job-killing tax increase scheduled for January looming over our heads, you would think that legislation to help average Americans find jobs in the private sector would be the top priority for the Democratic leadership in Congress. If you thought that, you would be wrong.

This Tuesday the Senate will vote on a bill that would overturn the 1993 law which codified the military's longstanding prohibition of homosexual conduct in the ranks. The language that would force open homosexuality upon the military is found in the defense authorization bill -- along with another anti-family provision that would turn U.S. military medical facilities here and around the globe into abortion centers.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has arranged it so that pro-family senators do not have an opportunity to offer any of their own amendments to counter his political abuse of our military. This means the only way to stop this monstrosity is to vote against proceeding to the bill.

This bill is not necessary to fund our military -- an appropriations bill does that.

Senators should reject Reid's distorted priorities by voting against advancing this bill at every step. Call your senators today at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to stop using the military to impose this administration's radical homosexual agenda.

I'm disappointed. Nothing about soldiers being "oogled" by gay men or being subjected to "wandering fingers." No citing that ridiculous study about how gay men will rape heterosexual soldiers.

None of that hysterical mess which I have come to expect and "adore" from my religious right emails?

Damn, FRC. You are slipping.
