Gay activists have 'insatiable intolerance' claims straight guy who daily denigrates gay people for profit, political access
Tony Perkins, on break from saying some of the worst things imaginable about LGBT people and working to pass/overturn laws so that LGBT people have a tougher track in life, says the following about a recent development:
"Just over the past few days the insatiable intolerance of homosexual activists has become abundantly clear. On Monday the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of the Elane Photography decision arising out of New Mexico. Business owner and wedding photographer Elaine Huguenin followed her Christian conscience by politely declining to participate in a same-sex wedding. For that she was punished by the New Mexico Human Rights Commission - a decision upheld by the state's Supreme Court."
—Family Research Council president Tony Perkins
Um, Tony, I'm pretty sure our US Supreme Court consists of a majority of members who were appointed by Republican presidents. They could have heard the case, but they chose not to. Is it us you're mad at. Tony, or is it Antonin Scalia?
And the reason the case even got to SCOTUS level is because various other entities, including the New Mexico high court, determined, rightly, that the lesbian couple that was crudely and embarrassingly denied of service is the party that truly suffered under an act of intolerance (Imagine that). I "love" how activists like Tony pretend these things happen simply because we LGBT activists snap our fingers and say so. I mean, I know it's easier for them to deny the wins we are achieving on the basis of merit, but their rhetorical ease doesn't add even a sprinkling of legitimacy to their "GAY BULLIES!" meme.
But I have to say, I don't hate the new "insatiable intolerance" branding. It is kind of perfectly over-the-top in a really particular way.
