      FRC Opposes U.S. Resolution Against Ugandan 'Kill Gays' Law
      by Kilian Melloy
      Friday Jun 4, 2010

      Anti-gay group The Family Research Council has been in the headlines
      recently, due to the organization's co-founder, George Rekers, traveling to
      Europe in the company of a paid male escort hired off RentBoy.com. Rekers
      was a paid professional witness for the state of Florida in a suit
      challenging that state's ban on gay adoptions.

      In late May, the FRC also made the news with claims of gay military
      personnel "raping" their comrades in arms, and warning that a repeal of the
      anti-gay Don't Ask, Don't Tell, a ban on openly GLBT soldiers, would lead to
      a rash of sexual assaults.

      But the FRC is in the news once more for having reportedly hired lobbyists
      to sway Congressional leaders to kill a resolution condemning legislation in
      Uganda that would, if passed, put gays to death. According to a June 3 story
      at GLBT blog JoeMyGod.com, a Senate version of the resolution has already
      passed--but a similar resolution is stalled in the House, four months after
      the Congressional Foreign Affairs Committee took it up.

      JoeMyGod reports that the FRC paid lobbyists $25,000 to sway members of
      Congress to oppose the resolution, according to the FRC's own report.
