I won't get into the mudslinging or muckraking, but Huffington has a story on Southern Poverty Law Center v. Family Research Council, here.
Picture: "Chick fil A" booth on Ballston Common, lower level, in Arlington. The booth is small compared to that of other nearby eateries, and I have never noticed it before, until all the controversy. Many larger restaurants, other shops, and Regal Cinemas are on the upper levels, and a Metro stop is nearby.
Update: Aug. 30
An article by Lou Chibbaro, Jr. in the Aug. 24, 2012 Washington Blade reports that the Family Research Council is still a "federal charity" program, link here.
Sean Bugg has an interesting perspective on p. 19 of the Aug. 23 Metro Weekly, "Mainstreaming hate", critical of the positions taken by Dana Milbank, Bugg's column here.
On Aug. 16, Dana Milbank had written in the Washington Post, "Hateful speech on hate groups: The Family Research Council is no KKK", here.
Nevertheless, in the past, the FRC's allusions have been more or less of the ilk of Anita Bryant and "Save out Children" back in 1977, which I remember all too well.
