Imagine That - Focus On The Family Called Out For Misrepresenting Evidence

In today's U.S. Senate hearing regarding the Respect For Marriage Act (a Senate bill that would repeal the so called "Defense of Marriage Act"), Minnesota Senator Al Franken called out Focus On The Families Tom Minnery - the head of their public policy organization Citizen Link - for his deliberate misrepresentation of social science data. As one who has followed religious right organizations, I am not surprised at their misrepresentation of evidence to fit their preconceived ideology regarding gay families; but I am gleeful that they were called out for it on the national stage. Great job Senator Franken! H/T to ThinkProgress for the video.
