when the Family Research Council, the American Family Association (two groups mentioned in the email), and their allies (which includes Fox News “cultural reporter” Todd Starnes) complain about this letter – which they had been doing ad nauseum, they claimed that the Rich was attacking “Christian” groups or ministries.
