Baton Rouge paper helps show Tony Perkins' true colors

by Jeremy Hooper

Kudos to The Advocate of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for running a fair and insightful report on local boy Tony Perkins:

“Tony Perkins and his group go about lying about gays and lesbians. Basically, and I’m not even exaggerating, (they’re) telling people that gays are pedophiles and predators,” [Southern Poverty Law Center's Josh Glasstetter] said.

Bruce Parker, coalition manager for Equality Louisiana, said he does not understand why the governor appointed Perkins. Equality Louisiana is a statewide coalition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups.

Parker said the law enforcement commission meets in Louisiana while Perkins works in Washington, D.C.

“The man is not an expert on law enforcement, he’s not in Louisiana regularly and he’s the leader of a recognized hate group,” Parker said.
