If it were a small private organization with no political aims, I
wouldn't worry about it either--but one has to be suspicious of a
group that can rally 1,000,000 men in Washington. It is not unlikely
that they will be perceived there as an influential lobby, trying to
get their perverse ideas of what a "family" is written into law and
enforced by the state.

Good intentions are the most powerful tool of evil.
