Family Values in Action

Randall Terry, Operation Rescue founder and darling of the Religious Right, is currently running for a state Senate seat in Florida.

And, as part of his campaign, he has focused on bread-and-butter “family values issues.”

Yet a recent campaign mailer Terry sent to his supporters, what members of Terry’s own family were missing? (Hint: There is more than one answer here.)

A. Terry’s alcoholic father
B. Terry’s gay son
C. Terry’s daughter, who had a child out of wedlock
D. Terry’s divorced wife

B and C: Terry’s son Jamiel, who came out of the closet in 2004, and his daughter Tila, who had a child out of wedlock.

Said son Jamiel, “He [Randall Terry] is very big on image. In a large way Tila and I mess up that image.”

Said Randall Terry himself, “The reason we don’t have a photo with Jamiel and Tila is that we haven’t been in the same room with them in about three years.”
