RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

The Pro-Family Resource Center is a web site with a strong anti-homosexuality slant. The resources it promotes include a number of batshit crazy books and articles, as well as links to "news" sites such as Wing Nut Daily. The site states that its mission is to "promote and defend the Biblical view of marriage and family through education, training and funding." Which is odd, because they don't seem to promote polygamy, the type of marriage showcased in the Old Testament.

A typical position on homosexuality[edit]

We are probably all familiar with the oft-cited fact that the collapse of numerous civilizations prior to our own were heralded by a rise in sexual immorality, especially homosexuality. That alone should alert us to the grave situation we find ourselves in today. But there is a deeper spiritual significance beneath that statistic. God has chosen rampant homosexuality to be a key warning sign for judgment of the world as a whole, and not just of individual nations.

The reading material[edit]

The site randomly highlights 3 of its catalog every day. Some of the more exciting propoganda texts on the "must read" list include:

  • Seven Steps To Recruit-Proof Your Child - a parenting guide which advises on how to "protect" your child from "the homosexual agenda."
  • The Poisoned Stream - a history of homosexual influences throughout history, particularly in Germany between 1890 and 1945.
  • The Pink Swastika - "proof" that the Nazis were all homosexuals and didn't oppress gays at all, oh, no!

The "perspective" and the "topic"[edit]

All of their books are classified according to the particular perspective on Good Christian Life (TM) that the site promotes. Anti-family includes articles about mass murderers, or parents who have killed their children; Pro-family on the other hand, appears to be everything else, including articles about the Icky Gay (TM) and his attempts to infiltrate your world and "recruit" your child. Then, in case you don't have enough idea of the article's content from the "pro-family" perspective tag (which appears on nearly every article), there are "topics" which include (all direct quotes) "The Uganda Topic," "The History Topic," "The Legal Issues" topic, and I'm sure "The Nearly Gay President" topic. Since virtually all of their articles are in some way about the Big Bad Gay, these subsets should really be understood not as "History" but "History of our discrimination against The Gay" topic, and not as "Uganda and all the various political and social issues there", but "The Big Bad Gay in Uganda, and how someone finally is doing God's work by putting them in jail and even killing them" topic. Don't believe me?

There is indeed evil in Uganda today, but it is not the reaction of Christian and Moslem citizens to the rape of their culture. It is the pink-gloved hand of western powers that are cutting the throat of Africa’s most God-fearing country, and one of the world‘s most promising Christian democracies.

The news sites[edit]

These include all the usual suspects, WND, Faux News, and the Washington Times.

There are also "useful" links to articles on their front page.

The president[edit]

The president of the organization is Scott Lively who, apart from being co-author of The Pink Swastika, is also President of Abiding Truth Ministries.

In short, a nasty piece of work.
