The Family Research Council (FRC) has a long and inglorious history of hatred directed at and attempts to violate the rights of Muslims, Gays, Women and anyone else who refuses to goose-step to their Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian dogma. Now they have chosen yet another notorious hatemonger to a high executive post.
The Family Research Council (FRC), an anti-gay hate group that claims LGBT rights advocates want to “recognize pedophiles as the ‘prophets’ of a new sexual order,” announced on Friday the appointment of retired Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin as its new executive vice president.
The press release accurately describes Boykin as a veteran who spent 36 years in the Army, serving in the elite Delta Force and, later, as deputy undersecretary of defense and intelligence in Donald Rumsfeld’s Pentagon.
What it does not mention, however, is Boykin’s troubled history of making damaging, controversial statements; his work as a radical anti-Muslim propagandist; or his close involvement with the New Apostolic Reformation, a theocratic evangelical movement that believes demons control LGBT people, Catholics, Muslims and freemasons.
Boykin, who in 2011 said Muslims do not have First Amendment rights because Islam “is not just a religion, it is a totalitarian way of life,” became the subject of international criticism in 2003 when it came out that he had given a series of speeches at religious events, wearing full military dress, in which he said the United States was fighting “Satan” in the Middle East and insisted his God was stronger than that of his enemies… [emphasis added]

Here’s Boykin in action.
I could have chosen a video in which Boykin and Glenn Beck found themselves in complete agreement about everything they discussed, but I had mercy on you.
I’m not at all surprised that FRC chose Boykin. However, I am appalled that such an individual climbed such a high rank in our in our military.
In a Republican Regime, Boykin and people like him would make decisions over your lives.
