Audio: Reverend Perkins
We had tipped you off to the fact that the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins, in the run-up to this past weekend's anti-gay rally, was planning to stop by Bangor, Maine's Bangor Baptist Church to speak to the congregation of Mike Heath-affiliated pastor Jerry Mick. Yea, well -- Tony made good on that booking. And we can now bring you the audio from that homo-hostile appearance, so you can hear Tony work to disintegrate the ever-flimsy lime between church and state for yourself. Preacher as politician/politician as preacher:

Oh these social conservatives. They never seize the right opportunities to rise to their feet and call out a speaker. Because if ever there was a time for a dissident to get up and holler, that opportunity would seem to belong to the heartfelt Christian who came to church to love with an open humanistic heart, not be told that they should divide via a hurtful civil agenda!
"Look, I'm not being political here."

lol..Marriage as GOD defined it.. 5000 years of marriage.
As I recall, King David had like 500 wives, and that was (I believe) less than 5000 yrs ago. ALSO: until recently (relatively speaking) women were considered property. SO is that that message Tony wants to share? The word dowry (sp?) comes to mind, weren't men given property to Marry their future wives????
I think I much prefer the idea of marriage as a union between two people that LOVE each other (no dowry required).
just my 2 cents

Maybe I'm just being optimistic, but I think the more they keep defining acceptance of glbt freedom as being "against God", the more people will run, screaming and panicked, from their vestibules. People aren't total idiots.
I mean, this guy is a total nut.
