Read: Exceedingly anti-gay politico Tony Perkins' speech to Republican Leadership Conference

by Jeremy Hooper

Tony Perkins, head of one of the most viciously anti-LGBT organizations inside the Beltway, has referred to LGBT activists as being "pawns" of "the enemy," claims gay people tend to have an "emptiness within them," says gay parents impose "distorted values" on their children, suggests LGBT teens try suicide because "homosexuals may recognize intuitively that their same-sex attractions are abnormal,” routinely equates homosexuality as being on par with drug abuse, vocally supports the idea that gay people can and should "change," has said it's a "fact" that gay people face "eternal damnation, and demands of the LGBT rights fight:"It doesn't matter what society does, I think within the homosexual, most of them know that this behavior, it's just not right, it's not what we were created to do and it's against God's plan and it's contrary to our nature and the way were were created." You can find all that and much more, fully sourced and documented, right here.

Do what does the Republican party of 2014 call this kind of rhetoric? "Leadership," natch:
