Family Research Council Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should Gay Marriage Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Family Research Council champions marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society. Properly understood, ‘families’ are formed only by ties of blood, marriage, or adoption, and ‘marriage’ is a union of one man and one woman.”

Description:

“When Family Research Council opened its doors in 1983, official Washington paid it little attention. After all, cause-oriented nonprofits are a dime a dozen in the nation’s capital, new policy shops come and go, and most wither away over time.

Not Family Research Council. FRC would prove to have lasting influence on the affairs of the nation. In time, FRC became one of America’s most creative and effective policy organizations.”
