He's not just a jerkwad, as if that weren't bad enough.|

By all means, confront the lies and present the research (in general, not necessarily here and now). But if the goal is to actually influence events, as opposed to just having a group gripe among like-minded bloggers, the arguments will have to be targeted toward JW's constituents. Establishing that JW is not a man of his word, or that he irresponsibly shoots his mouth off is more likely to be effective on that audience than showing he's GLBT-hostile.
As to the FRC being racist, these attacks on Perkins are a straw man. Even if he is a bigot, the person is not the organization. IMHO, to show that the organization is racist, one would have to show that it endorsed a racist platform, or intentionally supported a racist cause. And even then, it wouldn't taint the people they'd endorsed unless it could also be established that their endorsement criteria were designed to favor racists.
This may seem like it's setting the bar high, but racism is a serious charge, and I don't think it's a good idea to level it without pretty solid evidence.
