Audio: FRC prez, in a church, calls for 'throwing unelected judges on the dung heap of history'

by Jeremy Hooper

While delivering a sermon at Leesburg, Virginia's Cornerstone Chapel, Family Research Council Tony Perkins had this to say about a crucial third branch of government:


[SOURCE]

The fact that a D.C. worker bee who makes his living in American politics is so disrespectful to the judiciary's crucial role is gross enough. But this is the FRC we're talking about, so of course the president's condemnations-via-sermon can't come without added hypocrisy. Less than one minute before the above attack on "unelected judges" (at 13:22; the marriage part comes at 14:06), Tony heaped praise on the Supreme Court's opinion in the Hobby Lobby case. "A great victory," Tony declared before condemning the "political left" who pushed back against the decision. Because apparently unelected judges are awesome, so long as they have names like Alito and Scalia and Thomas—and they agree with Tony's chosen agenda of exalting faith above sound public policy.

But whatever. It's neither the ash heap nor the dung heap with which Tony should be concerned, but rather than gaping hole that is his untenable support for legally-sanctioned discrimination. He keeps digging and digging, shoveling the anti-gay sh*t in hopes that he'll hit pay dirt. Instead of finding this elusive boon, he's just making an inescapably bad legacy for himself and his organization on this and related issues.
