'Abnormal' obsession: Career voice of anti-gayness slurs LGBT teens (again)

by Jeremy Hooper

The latest from Family Research Council president Tony Perkins:

[Tony] Perkins: Gay Teens Are Suicidal Because They Know They Are "Abnormal" [RightWingWatch]

Well of course Tony thinks we're abnormal: He's already revealed on multiple occasions how he thinks we're "held captive by the enemy."

And soon enough, yet another mainstream media outlet will be booking the FRC prez as a mere voice of "from the right" dissent. Because while we gays are obviously not abnormal, in the national discourse, we certainly are still an anomaly: The one minority population whose decent treatment is still an objective media debate rather a subjective non-brainer. When that changes, so too the overwrought "culture war."
