Man who gets paid to screw gays again links homosexuality to prostitution

by Jeremy Hooper

Tony Perkins is yet again trying to link the Secret Service's widely, bipartisanly condemned prostitution mess with gays in general and Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal in particular. Oh, and this time, we gays find out that we're innately "promiscuous," "unnatural," "immoral," "inappropriate," "unhealthy," and "destructive."

From Tony's Washington Update column:

But the United States, under this administration, is a country that increasingly celebrates sexual indulgence. Yet, if organizations so much as mention the word "abstinence" in their marriage curriculums, they're automatically disqualified from the HHS grant process. Then, of course, under the President's thumb, Congress introduced a new chapter of promiscuity into the U.S. military by overturning "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," followed by a seven month "coming out" party for homosexual servicemen. And all the while, the State Department is overseas trying to strong-arm other countries into accepting its views on contraception, abortion, homosexuality, and premarital sex.

Is it any wonder this country is suffering from an ethical identity crisis? This is what comes of an administration that systematically destroys the moral foundations of our military, government service, and public schools. On one hand, the administration has tried to force our military to embrace homosexuality by making unnatural and immoral sex legal--and on the other, it's outraged that its military is engaging in another form of legal but immoral sex. (Prostitution is permissible in Colombia's "tolerated zones.") Both behaviors are inappropriate, unhealthy, and destructive. Yet only one seems to incense government officials.

If this seems a bit muddled, that's because it is. But this culture of moral confusion is inevitable when American leaders push a radical social policy that arbitrarily gives sexual license to some and condemns it from others.
Tony Perkins' Washington Update [FRC]

Okay, cable news—now he's just taunting you! This one's as deplorable as it is current. Think maybe if you who book such things continue the punditry trend lines (Tony's had four cable booking that I know up in the past six days), Tony and his number one obsession might finally get a mention?
