Tony Perkins: Gays 'broken' need a church 'hospital'

by Jeremy Hooper

In just over a month, all of the conservative stars (including most if not all the GOP primary candidates) will turn up at the Family Research Council's so-called "Values Voters Summit. And when they do, this is the sort of leadership they will be supporting:

2012 America: A time when a prominent political figure can claim a sizable, vibrant portion of the electorate needs to be "cured" and still maintain prominence and influence within one of the country's two main political parties.

*MORE: Here's a quick glimpse into the kind of crude things that Tony Perkins and his fellow Family Research Council staffers so routinely and unabashedly say about LGBT people. Things like: Positioning us as a kid-threatening disaster in need of "ex-gay" therapy, churning out brochures that compare same-sex marriages to those bonds which might exist between a man and a horse (complete with horse photo), directly likens us to terrorists, calling LGBT rights a battle of "good versus evil," saying DADT repeal proponents are "willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby," claiming gay teens kill themselves because they know that they're "abnormal," saying the gay activists who challenge FRC are "held captive by the enemy," writing that same-sex marriage will be "opening the door to all manner of moral and social evil, tweeting that gays don't need to "be a slave to feelings," and calling on U.S. gays to be either "exported" or criminalized (to name just a few FRC eyebrow-jackers).
