''This isn't a civil rights issue. [Homosexuality] is a choice in behavior and as a Christian organization we don't believe this is a right, it is a sin against Jesus Christ.''
Bryan English, who the Iowa Independent describes as the Director of Communications for the Iowa Family Policy Center. The organization says it is a non-profit that, according to it's own website, campaigns through pastors to support opposition to same-sex marriage, to push for a vote to repeal Iowa's recently legalized same-sex marriages, and to denounce "special rights to those practicing distorted sexual behavior." The leader Chuck Hurley specifies in a video featured on their site, that they deal with "the homosexual agenda." The Iowa Independent finds that the IFPC received over $3 million in federal funds through the Healthy Marriage Initiative created by President George W. Bush and continued by President Barack Obama. The Independent's report was sparked by the work of a blogger at ChuckHurls.com. (Iowa Independent)
