Senator Allen speaking before Family Research Council

Senator George Allen will be joining Ann Coulter and Jerry Falwell as featured speakers at the Family Research Council (FRC) political “briefing” in Washington in late September.

FRC is a Christianist organization founded by James Dobson that opposes abortion and rights for anyone other than heterosexuals. The organization opposes the availability of the vaccine for human papilloma virus (a virus that causes cervical cancer) because it might encourage sexual promiscuity. They also are proponents of the teaching of intelligent design and abstinence only sex education.

Recent controversies regarding Tony Perkins, the current president, pertain to his links to David Duke and the Council of Conservative Citizens. Another controversy involved founder James Dobson claim that the children’s cartoon character, SpongBob SquarePants was gay and sending coded messages to children.
