Tony The (Anti-LGBT) Tiger vs. Tony The TV Star

by Jeremy Hooper

At noon today, Tony Perkins will appear on Alex Wagner's MSNBC show. The two are not scheduled to talk about LGBT issues, but rather about general conservative concerns.

But you know what? It doesn't matter. Tony has built his profile (i.e. the very thing that lands him conservative punditry gigs) all around his anti-LGBT work, thus that work bears mentioning whenever and wherever Tony engages. That is the subject of a blog I just posted for GLAAD:

"If activists on almost any other cause were to say that their opponents' lives lead 'to all manner of moral and social evil' or thatGlaad-Logoyoung people who disagree with them attempt suicide because they know "that they are abnormal,” those people would at the very least be asked about those comments in subsequent media appearances. Yet Tony Perkins has said both of those things, just about the weddings of same-sex couples and the death by suicide of gay teens, and he is almost never asked to acknowledge the climate he so crudely creates."
