Audio: Tony shows Andrews the bullet that they dodged

by Jeremy Hooper

You know how the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins is going around telling everyone that there's absolutely no reason why Andrews Air Force Base should've disinvited him from speaking at one of their events? Yea, well -- this weekend at Nashville, Tennessee's Grace Chapel Church, Tony belied any grounds that he might have had:

Gays aren't the enemy -- they are just "being held captive by the enemy"? No, Tony, we can't possibly see a reason why the American armed services might have a problem with that kind of teaching [::writer rolls eyes so dramatically, one might suggest they're being held captive by the ocular sarcasm monster::].

Andrews Air Force Base clearly made the right call. Because armed forces professionals know that "being held captive by the enemy" is not the kind of phrase that one should toss around lightly. And hopefully, the American government is wising up to the fact that the religious right's constant claims of "gay militancy" should really come accompanied with a built-in mirror!

Your thoughts

Funny. My Mom says the same things that Tony says. And she WAS Military. And because of the fact, whether they admit it or not, the Military does institutionalize you so for the Military to be taking a stand on bigotry like they are, can definitely create great change for the future...One hopes...

And so it is with Tony P. et al

Thanks and all that, Tony, but I've had enough of your "interceding" in my life.

This guy is SUCH an asshole!

Am I the only one who finds it odd that the "Family Research Council" doesn't actually research families?

"Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man." - Thomas Jefferson

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise." - James Madison

Truly our forefathers words are blatantly validated by what We The People witness from the bible thumping dictators obnoxious public vocalizations and deeds.
