Al Qaeda expanding because of—gay soldiers?!

by Jeremy Hooper

Tony Perkins, the social conservative leader who is misidentified every time his LGBT rights obsessions are not put front and center, tweeted the following about reports of Al Qaeda's expansion in parts of Iraq:

DADT is of course "Don't Ask Don't Tell." The idea is that President Obama has somehow neglected his duties in Iraq because he supported the right of more Americans to openly serve, fight, and possibly die for their country.

Even for Tony, hellbent as he is on hurting LGBT people's rights and welfare, this is a bizarre and telling stretch. But then again, we are dealing with a really desperate political movement that is bleeding supporters at an even greater rate than we equality activists we gaining ground. Desperate times call for desperate claims about our basic freedoms undermining a global fight against terror.
