Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) owes his ex-wife $117,000 in child support. But according to the Family Research Council (FRC), he deserves an award for “unwavering support of the family.”
The award, says FRC President Tony Perkins, is for voting “to repeal Obamacare, de-fund Planned Parenthood, end government funding for abortion within the health care law, uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, and continue support for school choice.”
In 2010, The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) formally categorized the FRC as a “hate group.”
Walsh said he was proud to be awarded “as the only member from Illinois with a 100 percent pro-family voting record.”
“Defending American values have always been one of my top priorities, and this reward reaffirms my dedication to that fight,” he said.
Last week, Walsh said of his Republican primary opponent in his campaign for re-election:
“If he raises his voice and calls into question who I am as a father, I’ll punch him in the face, figuratively speaking.” (Read more)
Joe Walsh is part of the Religious Right, a Tea Party member, and possibly part of the Council for National Policy (CNP), which are Reconstructionist Christians for world government. I say this because the Family Research Council (FRC) was birthed in part in 1983 by James Dobson (CNP). In 1988, the FRC merged with and became a division of Focus on the Family. Gary L. Bauer (CNP) assumed leadership at that time. Since that time, Kenneth Connor (CNP) and Tony Perkins (CNP) have been presidents of the council.
