Tony Perkins doesn't want to judge judges on basis of sexuality; except when he does

by Jeremy Hooper

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins today, stressing that qualifications matter more than sexual orientation:

I agree. Find qualified judges, regardless of sexual orientation, and judge them on the merits of their rulings rather than their family makeup.

But you know who doesn't agree? Tony Perkins circa 2011:

So in short, sexual orientation doesn't matter to Tony when it comes to tracking/ensuring the diversity of the court. But when it comes to faulting a judge simply because he or she is gay because you know it will earn political capital among your fervent ranks? JUDGE AWAY!

Typical FRC.
