Tony Perkins goes after Super Bowl and equality star Brendon Ayanbadejo

by Jeremy Hooper

A man who collects a paycheck going after LGBT people and our rights just can't believe that someone else would use his platform to state his passions:

Oh, Tony—that's because Matt Brik's position is discriminatory. This is not an equally merited debate with two "agree to disagree" positions. Matt is fighting against people's civil rights; Brendon is fighting for people's civil rights. Big difference.

Oh, and I love that one nameless fan who supposedly defined the game. From my vantage point, I saw one Super Bowl player, Chris Culliver, whose anti-gay comments were met with swift outrage and prompt damage control and another player, Brendon Ayanbadejo, who is being hailed as a hero. Perhaps someone on the Perkins sofa bemoaned the "agenda" that is equality. In my home and many others? It was quite nice to have an avowed ally and a marriage equality state to cheer on in the big game!
