Tony Perkins: Baltimore unrest might be godly punishment for declaring 'moral rights to that which is morally wrong'

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council president, who is currently busy attacking CBS newsman Bob Schieffer for making note of his extremism on-air, is back with yet more of the very rhetoric that earned him his reputation. Take it away, Tony Perkins:

Screen Shot 2015-05-04 At 7.36.38 PmWhen the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when the wicked rule, the people groan. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. With yet another American city smoldering not from an attack by foreign jihadists, but rather domestic riots, many citizens are asking the question, is our nation coming apart at the seams? I think the answer to that question is rather obvious - yes. What is not so obvious is the cause. Are these violent displays of civil unrest the result of insufficient government assistance and or programs as some political leader have already suggested? Is it simply the product of frustration brought on by political or cultural marginalization? Without question there is some of the latter. But could these tragic events be symptoms of a deeper problem in our nation? Could the desperation and despair that is being expressed through these events be the groaning of a nation that has succumbed to ungodly rule? Not a particular individual, but rather a government, which declares moral rights to that which is morally wrong? For more go to tonyperkins.com

Considering Tony's number one obsession is resisting homosexuality, it's not a large leap to see his final comment as referring to LGBT rights, and particularly same-sex marriage. And of course Maryland has marriage equality, a reminder that would surely make him go, "See, see, see!"

All of which just makes you wonder the many things for which we are going to be blamed over the next many years. Maybe we should divide it up so that we can each answer for a particular area of life? I'll take restless leg syndrome and that shitty thing that happens when you lose the drawstring inside your sweatpants, if someone else wants to take rampant poverty and global water shortages.
