First off, I’m not dead yet, just very busy. That, plus a tremendous feeling of “what’s the fucking point” with ranting over religion and religious loons has kept me from blogging, although I do still occasionally mix it up with the loons on others’ blogs. I also respond to emails, and today I got an email from the FRC (sometimes good to get on mailing lists of the loons to keep tabs on what they’re up to). They have a survey they want members to fill out, so I filled it out. I only wish I could see their faces when they read it. Like to add to their survey? Click here. Below are some of my responses…
Please take a few minutes to complete this survey

Your answers are confidential; at no point will we ask you for your name or contact information. Thank you!
Off the top of your head, what comes to mind when you think of the Family Research Council?
In your own words, please describe what the Family Research Council does. If you’re not sure, just describe as much as you can.
Attempt to impose beliefs on others, often causing measurable harm.
Which of the following best describes how well you feel you know the Family Research Council (FRC)?
I feel like I know just about everything there is to know about FRC.
The next was a list of things you can agree or disagree with. I gave a “Strongly Disagree” with all except on ‘provides me with information’ and on whether they’re a resource when in doubt on an issue. Those I gave a “Strongly Agree” because they provide info on the crazy perspective and if in doubt on an issue, it’s a safe bet to take the contrary position to whatever they recommend.
Have you ever visited the Family Research Council website?
The next question was a number of options on site design but the following one was on how best they should advertise, so I chose them all because I’d like to see them expend as much time and money as possible on advertising.
Have you ever financially supported the Family Research Council?
Briefly explain your reasoning for the above response. In other words, if you have financially supported FRC, what are some of the main reasons for doing so? If you haven’t, what factors or issues have prevented or kept you from supporting FRC?
Answer #1, the FRC is evil.
The rest is demographic info, except that they try to phish for where they should advertise by asking how frequently you read the paper, tweet, etc, so I chose all (ie – see waste time and money advertising).
