Tony Perkins needs money so he can decry my 'sexual deviance'

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council's latest fundraising pitch:

201308291554

I love how they give no actual plan of how they will fight back. They say they are going to lobby Congress, but so what? A majority of the U.S. Senate is on record as being in support of marriage equality, and it's pretty much guaranteed that a plurality of even those who aren't in support (in either body) would shy away from any attempt to roll back rights. So what's the plan, FRC?!

What you and I know is that there is no real plan, because this whole thing is nothing more than fundraising. It's a ruse. it's a charade. Fighting our marriages was a windfall for organizations like FRC, which is why they are desperate—DES-PUH-RUT!—to hold onto it as long as they possibly can.

So yeah, whatever—give them your money if you want, "values voters." But I should tell you that it's about the least you could do to stop equality. Literally.
