FRC spokesperson supports criminalizing homosexual behavior


Sprigg LGBTQ Nation

Appearing on Tuesday’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, Family Research Council spokesperson and board member Peter Sprigg said he believes that “gay behavior” should be criminalized.


Sprigg appeared in the broadcast, responding to yesterday’s testimony by Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, before the Senate Armed Services Committee, that he supported allowing gays to openly serve in the U.S. armed forces.

During a debate with Aubrey Sarvis of the Service Members Legal Defense Network, Sprigg claimed that it was “unfair to put soldiers in a position of forced co-habitation with those who may be viewing them as a sexual object.”

The 9 minute segment on MSNBC concluded when Sprigg said that he believes that Lawrence vs. Texas (the Supreme Court decision that struck down the sodomy laws) was “wrongly decided” and that “gay behavior” should be criminalized, not just in the military, but in general.
