FRC and the rest are far from "mainstream" Christian. The issue is NOT that they oppose same sex marriage the issue is they spew lie after lie after lie in their battle against LGBT citizens of this country, and the world for that matter. As long as they continue to do that then yes, they deserve the hate group designation. Drop the totally unsupportable BS about pedophilia, shortened life spans and all the other fabrications then it could be different. In order to speak the truth in love you have to know the truth and be capable of love. Perkins and his crowd have proven over and over again that that is not is the case with them. The hate from both sides needs to end as only innocents get hurt.
