Celebrate the Family 2010—No Childcare Will Be Provided

The Iowa Family Policy Center's annual fundraiser will be held today, Sunday, November 21 from 2 pm - 5 pm at the First Federated Church, 4801 Franklin Ave., Des Moines, Iowa. No childcare will be available. How do we know this? BECAUSE IT SAYS SO ABOVE THE "MAP TO EVENT" BUTTON, STUPID!

The bait will be speaker Mike Huckabee. At the event (catered by the Machine Shed!), a new umbrella organization is to be introduced, to be headed by Bob Vander Plaats: The Family Leader, which will incorporate the IFPC, its PAC and Marriage Matters, a program which used to be federally funded.

The Iowa Independent website notes that, despite sharing a name, numerous connections and an anti-gay marriage agenda, Iowa Family Policy Center President Chuck Hurley says the new incarnation of his organization — The Family Leader — has no affiliation whatsoever to a national group with the same name and apparent ties to the Mormon church.

You can believe Hurley's Mormon connection denial if you like.
