I first became aware of Sharon Slater and her Family Watch International during the Question One contest in Maine. An entity calling itself “Family Watch Maine” made an appearance on a website titled “Marriage Facts Maine Coalition” and since the name sounded strangely familiar, I asked the folks at Sharon’s FWI office if they were involved. Yes, they were, according to Lynn Allred, their Communications Director. Sadly, all communication ended when I asked Lynn if she could direct me to anyone who was, you know, actually residing in Maine while representing their Gilbert, AZ-based organization.
And the opening graf will read something like this:
The leader of a right-wing organization, who made a name for herself by pushing abstinence-only based programs in Africa and has ties to the virulently antigay Ugandan pastor, Martin Ssempa, is stepping up efforts to block nondiscrimination policies on Arizona’s community college campuses.
 This “Urgent Alert” arrived by way of an ber-Mormon Arizona source that justifies my reading of the generic “church, community or political group” language as a wink-and-nod reference to LDS ward email directories.
Update: The LDS gal who sent me Sharon’s alert has now responded to the feedback she’s gotten from Mormons wondering why she’s so opposed to this expansion of MCCC’s nondiscrimination policy (especially considering the official LDS support for nondiscrimination ordinances in Utah).
