Audio: Tony Perkins: 'Held captive by lazy sermon writer'

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2010-06-16 At 11.55.39 Am-5When it comes to those certain human beings who he's decided are his political opponents simply because they live the way they were created, the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins really needs to find a new way of implying that his adversaries are possessed by some sort of evil being. Because frankly, his "held captive by the enemy" schtick is getting really old:

#1: 2/28/10, Nashville, Tennessee's Grace Chapel Church:

Come on, T.P. If you're going to viciously/smugly attack our characters in front of sizable congregations, at least be a little bit innovative. Trust me, dude: You're in no danger of coming across as progressive. You can afford to play a little with avant-garde attack lines.
