Tony Perkins predicts gay marriages destroying the country; hopes it won't happen before his Values Voters Summit (*already has deposit on exhibit hall)
"The American people are there. They know intuitively what marriage is. History shows it, the Bible shows it, [and] society has reflected it," Family Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins says of the findings. "The further we move away from that model of marriage, the more problems we'll face in society. This could very well be the death nail [sic] of marriage...of civilized society, and of this country."
- Tony Perkins, head of SPLC-designated "hate group" the Family Research Council, speaking to One News Now, the news outlet of SPLC-designated "hate group" American Family Association
The American people are there with the idea that gay people's unions will lead to this country's destruction? If you say so, Tony.
In fact, we insist: Say so, Tony! We can almost feel the polls moving in our favor every time you do.
*NOTE: We mention FRC's Values Voters Summit in the headline for a reason. This is the major conservative event at which, historically, all of the GOP primary candidates show up to give a stump speech. So if/when they do, it is our duty to remind America of the kind of crude things that FRC staffers so routinely and unabashedly say about our lives and loves. Things like: Positioning us as a kid-threatening disaster in need of "ex-gay" therapy, churning out brochures that compare same-sex marriages to those bonds which might exist between a man and a horse (complete with horse photo), directly likens us to terrorists, calling LGBT rights a battle of "good versus evil," saying DADT repeal proponents are "willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby," claiming gay teens kill themselves because they know that they're "abnormal," saying the gay activists who challenge FRC are "held captive by the enemy," writing that same-sex marriage will be "opening the door to all manner of moral and social evil, and calling on U.S. gays to be either "exported" or criminalized (to name just a few FRC eyebrow-jackers).
It is not unfair to demand answers of the slate of GOP candidates who turn out to support this same kind of nonsense.
