Family Knows Best

Thank God we’ve got the Family Research Council to keep us safe.

While the rest of us are busy contemplating the dangers posed by Al Qaeda, the war in Iraq, global warming and the current hurricane season, the Family Research Council recently took out full-page newspaper ads urging the Justice Department and FBI to investigate WHAT?

A. Homosexuals working for outside contractors of the Pentagon in a possible violation of the “don’t ask/don’t tell” policy
B. Minors traveling across state lines to purchase the Plan B “morning after pill” without telling their parents first
C. Privately-funded stem cell research at Harvard University
D. Pay-per-view porn in the nation’s hotel chains

1) D: Pay-per-view porn in the nation’s hotels, which the group believes violate federal and state obscenity laws.

“These are places that you take your family — these are respectable institutions,” said Family Research Council Tony Perkins. “Anything that brings porn into the mainstream is a concern.”

Countered Hilton spokeswoman Kathy Shepard, “In their zest to have their personal morals prevail, they are eliminating choice for others.”
