Pundit who cable news loves to portray as mainstream: Gay people are 'outside of God's design'

by Jeremy Hooper

In yet another fundraising blast built around denigrating LGBT people and equal marriage rights, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins is yet again telling anyone who will listen that we gay people are intrinsically broken because we are "living outside of God's design." Here's the pertinent snip:

Oh please, please, please, Mr. Perkins—please "affirm" me! I live in wait, hoping that someday you and your personally chosen condemnations might lessen so that maybe—just maybe—you'll invite me for lemonade on your patio.

Except no. Get out of the way and let us have our rights, professional purveyors of heterosupremacy, and then frankly I couldn't care less how fully and loudly you condemn me. Make a damn voodoo doll family meant to represent my own and spend your days and nights poking pins into our cotton stand-ins, if doing so helps you feel dominant. Stand on various street corners brandishing the most anti-gay signs you and your markers can dream up. Pray that we will be Satan's eternal prey, if you think such casting will help you hang on to your own heavenly ticket. I. Could. Not. Care. Less.

Once the civil rights fight is over, Tony Perkins will be shocked to learn how eager I am to never again write his name.
