FACTS

-- Suggests that a transgender child who identifies as a girl is really a boy in need of a father: "And one final thought: No mention is made anywhere of the boy's father, and his utter absence from news stories strikes me as a classic "elephant in the room," or in this case, not in the room. Dare I state the obvious, unspoken truth? This poor little boy desperately needs a father."

-- Says it "can be child abuse" to support a transgender child (6:12-6:18)

-- At FRC's "Justice Sunday" event, bemoaned courts that have "enshrined homosexual activity" into law

-- Reffered to scientifically discredited "ex-gay" teaching as merely a "resource" and "other perspective" on par with those that "[promote] the homosexual lifestyle as natural and positive"

-- Credited for sparking a national boycott of The Girl Scouts because of that organization's supposed "left wing agenda."  Cites merely having "people on their board that are also on the board of the Human Rights Campaign and push for same-sex marriage" as examples.

--Has described her policy work with FRC as "almost like working for the church" (at :47)
