    No, it's his last name. No one would give a shit about the ex-ed of a small think tank being on the Ashley Madison leak if his last name was Smith. His diddling of children, maybe that would have pinged, but your fooling yourself if you really think this is somehow news or relevant outside of other tribe shaming (and no one here gives a fuck out think this asshole represents the "tribe").

    The guys already a fucking pedophile, why give a shit if he's on Ashley Madison? It's the same weird obsession that shows up with Zimmerman.

    Oh, ok. We'll just ignore that his family has been involved in politics since long before they had a TV show. That's cool too.

    The masses demand a sacrifice. He's the sacrifice du jour. Last week it was that guy who hunted that lion. It's unfortunate that Subway Jared's thing happened to coincide with this revelation, because Jared would otherwise be that sacrifice. Next week, who knows?

    I've been involved in politics. That's a meaningless phrase with qualifications. If you mean "headed a minor think tank and got to talk to some Names", sure, fine, there are hundreds of those. He's famous and known for his TV appearances and his clown car arrival. His politics just make this a convenient cover for you to twirl about showing of your outrage at meaningless things.

    Oh I'm not outraged, I just want his name associated with the FRC as much as possible.

    So, I'm right, this is just tribal posturing.

    Planned Parenthood doesn't lobby to have me and my family imprisoned.

    After I went to all the trouble to queue up the relevant statement? Here's a transcript. And just to be clear, here's the statement made by Peter Sprigg, Senior Researcher for Policy Studies at FRC:

    MATTHEWS: Do you think we should outlaw gay behavior?
    SPRIGG: Well, I certainly...
    (CROSSTALK)
    MATTHEWS: I‘m just asking you, should we outlaw gay behavior?
    SPRIGG: I think that the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas, which overturned the sodomy laws in this country, was wrongly decided. I think there would be a place for criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior.
    MATTHEWS: So, we should outlaw gay behavior?

    SPRIGG: Yes.
    MATTHEWS: OK. Thank you very much, Peter Sprigg. We know your position. It‘s a clear one.

    I'm still unclear, are you Ugandan?

    I'm really trying to figure out why you're defending a politically toxic group that the GOP should be jettisoning instead of courting. The FRC absolutely lobbies the US government to enact anti-gay legislation including the criminalization of homosexuality. Lawrence v. Texas made this a largely futile effort, but they filed amicus briefs in that case supporting sodomy laws that specifically target gays. Their success at achieving their agenda overseas is not immediately relevant.
