Tony Perkins: Houston Wants To Punish Christians For Refusing To Celebrate Homosexuality

“Houston may be the fourth largest city in America, but it’s number one in media buzz heading into next Tuesday’s election. With everyone from celebrities to athletes weighing in on Proposition 1, the bathroom ordinance might be the most-watched issue of 2015. Yesterday, even Hillary Clinton weighed in on the side of the radical measure, which punishes people who refuse to celebrate transgenderism and homosexuality with massive fines. ‘No one should face discrimination for who they are,’ she insisted. No one, apparently, except Christians, who are the target of this nationwide march to silence religious liberty in America.

“Even Oscar-winner Sally Field is chiming in to sway locals in Proposition 1’s favor. ‘Everyone in this country is watching this,’ she said at a rally. ‘This is incredibly important. Eyes are on Houston. This is Texas.’ She’s right. It is Texas — where vibrant faith and individual freedom are cherished parts of everyday life. Stripping parents, local citizens, and businesses of their First Amendment rights isn’t Texan — and more importantly, it isn’t American. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped liberals from injecting a toxic agenda into school rooms, board rooms, and bathrooms across America.” – Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.

With the vote expected to be very close, Houston Unites is planning to knock on 50,000 doors this weekend.knock

    Nope.

    P.S.

  • You again? Celebrating gays is Pride. This is about making sure those who are part of Pride aren’t fired the next day.

  • j.martindale

    His idea of a Christian’s “liberty” is freedom to fire a gay person. What a pri*k!

    • Snarkaholic

      Freedom to {set} fire {to} a gay person.

    Is anyone surprised Tony is lying again? That is all the loser can do.

      Of course he’s lying again. His lips are moving.

      If only there was a law against lying by those in public life!

      Just look for the seediest swamp toilet at the worst subway or bus station in town, and you’ll find his happy spot.

    • RoFaWh

      As I’ve said before, Perkins’ (and others’) fixation on bathrooms in connection with gay equality before and under the law is nothing but a sign that their toilet training in infancy wasn’t done “right”.

      Does Perkins get an erection when he hears the word “underwear”?

  • Paula

    How the fuck do they get Celebrating Homosexuality from a non-discrimination ordinance? These people are insane.

        More like bung holes obsess. He must have had a rough childhood soak in his own pool of urine and feces with no one to care for.

        Bunch of prudish busybodies, if you ask me.

        It’s really quite odd, when you stop and think about it, that the prudery of the Puritans back in the 1600s to this day continues to make a mess of American politics.

        Edit: I should add that the phrase “prudish busybodies” describes Perkins’ and others’ dupes amongst the goobers. Perkins himself (and other big haters) aren’t prudes, but I do not want to know in exactly what manner they aren’t prudish. [shudder]

    • Joseph Miceli

      Paula, as always with those people, it is pure projection. Just look at Christmas. Every year we are subjected to Christians attempting to punish non-Christians for not celebrating Christmas. The hypocrisy is glaring yet they remain totally oblivious to it, or they see it as just since theirs is the one, TRUE faith.

    • They see themselves as the gatekeepers of public behavior and that we are all desperate for their approval. They don’t understand that most of us have moved way beyond needing approval from the people who bullied us as children.

    • JoeNCA

      Not firing you for your homosexuality is totally celebrating your homosexuality.

      Right you just have to be human. That apparently, is the problem Perkins, etc. have – they have denounced their humanity.

        • GanymedeRenard

          Or, announced their (in)humanity.

      • Blake Jordan

        That is the number one aspect of their chosen religion, “deny your humanity”…

      • Silver Badger

        Problem is they are trying to denounce OUR humanity.

      • b

        Like the perfect zombie or vampire, they just wanted to eat, eat and eat. We denied them their snack, and saved our country in the process.

        • bambinoitaliano

          I’ve always stated the popularity of the zombies tv shows and movies are a reflection of our current time on earth. We have groups of human all over the world who had abandoned their brain function and surrendered their entire being to demagogues.

      • Joseph Miceli

        For support of that statement, see Dan Savage re: Tony Perkins and his pile of dead gay kids.
        The defense rests.

  • billbear1961

    You aren’t being asked to celebrate ANYTHING, you lying, fascist FUCK!

    You’re being asked to treat others in the public square with the same CIVILITY you DEMAND for yourselves–nothing more, and nothing less!!

    • vorpal

      They view treating us as equals under the eyes of the law as an incomprehensible affront, because from way up there on the shaky little pedestals they’ve put themselves, having to treat anybody they look down on as an equal strips them of their unjustified privilege.

    • You tell em!

  • Mark

    It’s just equal rights Tonnette, but of course, since you’re a fucking asshole, of course you’d see it this way. Fuck you. Fuck every goddamn xtiran who supports you and those who are complicit in their silence.

    • RoFaWh

      C’mon Mark. Tell us what you really think.

  • SammySeattle

    Is that the same way that all non-christians are punished for not celebrating christianity because they are protected at the federal level under the Civil Rights Act of 1964?

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Questioning privilege is not discrimination; it’s called ethics.

    The constant whining and victim wailing: it’s so damned old. If there was a god or Jeebus I would give up a kidney to hasten that promised Rapture.

    • Craig Howell

      Rupture Now!

  • John Kusters

    Tony says, “the radical measure”, as if every other major city in Texas didn’t have similar ordinances, along with most other major city in the nation. I guess it’s not as big of a money raiser if you say “the fairly mainstream measure that is the law in most other major cities….”

    • rabbit_ears

      A radical measure would be an enema of boiling mercury for Mr. Perkins. Not that I would ever advocate that, but it would be radical.

      • GanymedeRenard

        Hahahaha! XD Love the image! – not that I’d ever advocate that, either.

      • He’d finally have that hot ass he always wanted.

        • rabbit_ears

          Hot and very shiny!

      • RoFaWh

        Waste of good mercury, if you ask me.

    • Bad Tom

      “Which harms no one…”
      ——-
      It isn’t as effective for grifting grifters.

  • Michael

    And this greedy, false prophet “Christian” wants to punish real Christians (and other pro-equality Americans) for refusing to celebrate homophobia. That’s why they’re now trying to shut down the press at the Republican debates. Like Stalinists, they only want one point of view reflected everywhere.

    • vorpal

      I think that they are honestly dumbfounded by how quickly social attitudes have changed about gay people, and they’re still stuck in the 90s thinking that they should be able to generate a slightly uncomfortable but supportive laugh by talking about how two fudge packing fags will get the AIDS.

      • David L. Caster

        My guess is that the fundamental driver behind their shock is the clearly dawning realization that their main cash cow is drying up very quickly. We turned the lights on and the country saw that we and our relationships were not the big bad boogyman we were made out to be by the Antigay Industry.

        • vorpal

          Indeed! You can tell that they are making a last desperate cash grab by screeching nonstop about how LGBT rights will lead to daughter-raping men in the women’s bathroom, trying to monopolize off the plight of trans people. It’s sick.

          • David L. Caster

            And we are gaining momentum in our battle to break the back of the Antigay Industry—its sunset has been in progress for at least the last 6 years. This is why these rearguard battles are actually important: we have to keep up the pressure to finish the demolition of the remaining edifice of antigay legislation and go on to erect permanent bars against its reconstruction.

          • Chucktech

            The last 6 years does put a fine point on the turning tide of christian entitlement and privilege. That was about the time when DADT was relegated to the dustbin of history, and loony god besotted crowd have been on the defensive ever since.

          • David L. Caster

            And we must continue to press our advantage. One way to do that is to reward politicians that are on our side and elect more. We also need to work towards shifting the ideological balance of SCOTUS. The damage done by past Republican administrations must be decisively reversed. It’s time to get the US pointed in a progressive direction and away from fascistic oligarchy.

        • RoFaWh

          +lots for “Antigay Industry”

          Funny how often just a few words so well encapsulates what’s really going on.

  • Homo Erectus

    It’s frightening how he’s got the fascists’ ability to twist the truth into a lie down to a demonic art.

    • Zoey

      Preaching to the Quire takes no extra skill. Lies are readily accepted. Convincing good people to become hateful bigots though takes actual skill.

      • He may be reading from the quire (four sheets of paper or parchment folded to form eight leaves, as in medieval manuscripts or any collection of leaves one within another in a manuscript or book or 25 (formerly 24) sheets of paper; one twentieth of a ream.) but I am fairly certain he is screeching at the choir.

  • SFBruce

    Never mind that where other localities have passed this protection, there hasn’t been a single instance of some kind of bathroom assault. Never mind that LGBT people exist and would like a place to live and a job to pay for that place to live. In Tony’s mind these basic protections, which people of faith already enjoy at the federal level, represents a “toxic” agenda against him, but the only thing that’s “toxic” here is Tony’s perverted sense of Christianity which makes sticking it to gay people a central sacrament.

  • rabbit_ears

    Hell no, don’t celebrate it. Observe it by all means, but I don’t care if you celebrate it or not.

  • … most of the people who are pushing for the anti-discrimination laws that provide protection to LGBT people in Texas are, themselves, Christians.

  • Ninja0980

  • TrollopeReader

    Tony, I realize you’re slightly brainwashed, but to set the record straight, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, (some) Methodists, (some) Lutherans, United Church of (you know, ) Christ, Congregationalists, Northern Baptists, and many many more denominations are Christians. Real and True Christians. Even many Catholics. Now your so-called “Christian” Southern Baptists were formed c1850s to preserve and protect a certain Southern business model called “slavery”.

    so don’t you DARE claim to speak for Christians, you bigoted, prejudiced piece of toxic waste pond scum.

    • RoFaWh

      Just for the record, a reminder that the formal criterion for being a Christian is your church’s acceptance of the Nicaean Creed. Most do accept it. The momos don’t, I believe.

      • TrollopeReader

        Tony, Porno Pete, Bri-Bri and the others decide what is “Christian” or not. And if “momo” is Mormon, Romney got special dispensation from The Washington Elite Establishment that Mormons, are indeed (at least for purposes of 2012 elections) Christians.

      Don’t these people EVER get tired of shrieking how much they’re going to suffer if gay people get equal rights and then being proven wrong over and over again?

      Or perhaps they don’t understand that their words and actions have social consequences, and they honestly believe that the growing number of people who recognize them as subhuman trash is somehow a form of oppression.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

  • Robert Conner

    I say that unless they agree to participate in obscene priapic rites we feed the Christians to the lesbians! Actually, I’ve noticed several lesbians at the local Safeway here in Guerneville who keeping checking the deli section for free range Christian, but unfortunately, it appears the Christians in our area have been put on the endangered species list, and the ones that are still around are rangy and probably riddled with parasites. I seriously doubt it would be safe to eat them. I suppose it it comes right down to it, we could send them back to the Holy Land.

    • Octavio

      The tough ones can be safely cooked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes a pound. And to calm down the gamey taste you can cover it in a nice Russian River Dressing and cook an additional hour, keeping the meat moist with occasional bastings of a good beaujolais. 🙂

      • David Walker

        So you’re saying that boiling them in a cauldron outdoors over an open fire wouldn’t be the same?

        • Octavio

          With enough carrots, potatoes, onions and other root vegetables, you can make a nice soup with a caldron.

          • vorpal

            I dunno… they just seem so disgustingly rancid and rotten through and through to me.

            I doubt even breading and deep frying them would make them palatable. And this is coming from someone who is convinced that toilet filth, breaded and deep fried, probably could be made to taste good.

        • grada3784

          You can get a reasonable broth. Don’t add too much salt though. Their sad sad tears should provide most of what you need.

      • ChrisMorley

        But first you need to properly ‘hang’ your Christian carcase at about 38°F for at least 10 days to improve its tenderness. This process is called aging. This allows the enzymes in the meat to break down the proteins and improve eating quality. The process would also allow the development of flavors associated with the aging process.
        It’s what butchers do for the best beef.
        Tough game old Christian bigots may need much longer.

        • Octavio

          Excellent advice.

    • David L. Caster

      Though I think if they were planning on doing anything, the special ops route with training and advising indigenous fighters is the way to go. We are late to work this out and ISIL is the result. Of course, much of this could probably have been completely avoided had the US had not destabilized the power balance in that region.

      It’s very tempting to say we should stay the hell out of there, but it’s our fault that Iraq was weakened to the point where ISIL could set up shop there. Dawdling while Bashar al-Assad destroyed his country and created 2+ million refugees in the mistaken hope that the conflict would magically fix itself or the neighboring powers would get off their asses and do something about it brought us to where we are.

      I’m tired of the US playing World Cop, but when we are at the root of the problem do we not have an obligation to attempt mitigation of the harm our mistakes caused? Is it more of a mistake to continue to intervene in the very places we made some of our worst missteps? There are a lot of policymakers in high places asking the same kinds of questions. I’m glad I don’t have to make those calls.

        I agree. If only offering up George W., Cheney, and their “advisors” as blood sacrifices to the powers of the Universe would make a difference. Unfortunately, I suspect the Universe doesn’t work that way.

        • David L. Caster

          You could hand the lot of them over to the World Court in the Hague and little would change. The damage is done. It seems like everywhere the US has gotten into these adventures, we have left a path of destruction and instability.

          With the money we have spent on war, we could have universal healthcare, free university education, 6-month maternity leave for both parents, fully funded Social Security, a fully refurbished interstate system, a new electrical grid, and be well on our way to complete energy independence. And that’s just the wars in the last 15 years.

          • Octavio

            Yes. Disheartening, no?

          • David L. Caster

            I try not to let it get to me. This is where detachment and indifference come in handy. I’ll vote, but I also know the score.

          • TrollopeReader

            We play World Cop, everyone else in the world plays the World Cup.

        • i would applaud any religion that made such a sacrament. it sounds worthy of trying.

  • Cuberly

    Holy fucking Christ! How the hell can I be sure of their genitals in that closed stall?!?!11?!?!?11111 My precious snowflakes could be in the same restroom without knowing for SURE!!!!!111?!?!111!!!!

    Fuck you and your fear mongering toni.

    • lymis

      Well, the obvious response to that will be a government-mandated genitalia check at every public restroom, to prevent people from being molested in public restrooms.

  • GayOldLady

    The bathroom scare tactic is ridiculous and malicious all rolled into one. With or without prop 1 a man determined to get into the women’s restroom, for any reason, would find a way to do it. And I wonder how often “christian” bakers, florists, caterers, hotel owners, merchants bother to check out the background of their heterosexual customers. Hell they could be and are serving adulterers, fornicators, child molesters, rapists, etc. But, I suppose it only matters to them if it’s TEH Gay!!!!

  • Scott Holcomb

    I understand if HERO fails there will be a call for a full boycott of Houston. Corporations and American citizens will cancel conventions, trips, holidays and visits to the City and a push to halt all online purchases and shipping will race across this country. I wouldn’t want to be a citizen of Houston if that happens.

  • Jonathan

    I hate to be a downer but I think we’re going to lose this one, folks. It’s Texas, they’ll be the last to change.

  • sherman

    I think it’s time you stop making me celebrate Christianity and get your religious slogan off of our secular currency. No, I don’t trust in your mythical god.

    • Reality.Bites

      I don’t trust in your secular currency either. 😉

      • sherman

        It was late. Fixed. 🙂

  • safari2bongaloo

    It’s not always about you, Tony.

    • TrollopeReader

      No, it’s all about Bri-Bri Brown, nope it’s all about Mat Staver (he now says “Kim, WHOO??), it’s all about Porno Pete (oops, he just found out his compatriots don’t like him, either) …..their individual egos are bigger than the wayward US Joint Blimp who just-wanted-to-get-away!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Actually, I think they just want you to go away. More and more, these morons are being ignored and thus the shrill wails of “look at me, pay attention to me.” Well Tony, you had a good run under the Fox/Bush Junta, but alas, as with all things fleeting, your time has come and gone. Run along now, intellectuals and progressives need to clean up after you fools.

        “That’s OK, if you’re nice to me, I’ll give you a passing grade,” the teacher said, leering.

        (Bow chicka wow wow…)

  • TampaDink

    Yup, Tony. Just as much as you want to punish people for refusing to celebrate xmas.

    • vorpal

      “Happy Holidays” is librul-speak for “Kill the Christians!”

      • TampaDink

        Which allows it to be said with a evil wicked grin.

  • Piercedchrlz

    The bill doesn’t ask you to celebrate a damn thing. It’s telling you to mind your own fuckin’ business. That’s all but that’s just too much to bear for you, to live and let live.

  • Ginger Snap

    Bitch please.

  • MattM

    I’d love to punish all christians. But reality is punishment enough for them.

  • Happy Dance

    No, Tony…We want to live our life as we believe, just the way you want to live your life the way you believe. The only difference is that you want us to live our life the way you believe and forego our life the way we believe. Therefore, I believe you can do the “Christian” thing and MYOB! (I am being nice since Joe has asked us several times…but fill in the blanks where you see fit 😉 )

  • Terry

    Religion is protected on so many counts and even looked at preferably over sexual orientation…how is it “special rights” to have rights WHICH YOU HAVE ALREADY extended to another group of people?

    Just say you hate us and can’t wait to push us into the ovens…

      Spammer, get lost!

  • anne marie in philly

    “a toxic agenda into school rooms, board rooms, and bathrooms across America.” – NO, tony duggar baloney duggar, it’s called EQUALITY. it’s called “love your neighbor as yourself”. it’s called “being a kind human person”. for all your bitching about loving an invisible sky daddy, you certainly don’t follow his teachings, do ya?

  • Baltimatt

    Doesn’t this bill also punish people who don’t want to celebrate whiteness and blackness and Jewishness and Christianness and verteraness and stuff with massive fines? It’s a slippery slope, I tell you!

  • Mark

    Tony makes me wanna sing!

    Gotta skeeter on my peter – whack it off!
    Gotta skeeter on my peter – whack it off!
    Gotta skeeter on my peter, gotta skeeter on my peter,
    Gotta skeeter on my peter – what it off.

  • Tony Perkins knows how to use charged words to scare and steer people into accepting his brand of hate. Evidence of scare tactics is this tidbit from above, “the radical measure, which punishes people who refuse to celebrate transgenderism and homosexuality with massive fines.” The phrase makes it sound like the thought police will target average citizens for their opinions. Be sure to send Tony your dollars so that he can keep the thought police away from your front door.

  • Mark

    Seeing him first thing in the morning is like discovering a tick on your dick at first piss.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Or a skeeter on your peter.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Another fuhrer wannabe.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    KKK-enthusiast Tony Perkins is the same man who hired sister-diddler Josh Duggar to speak as the voice of extremist Christians. What moral standing does he have to speak about the rights of the citizens of Houston? Take your KKK mailing list Tony and go crawl back under a rock with your buddy David Duke.

  • DesertSun59

    Perkins is one of the most narcissist Christians in this entire nation.

  • goofy_joe

    If they stuck to the facts, they wouldn’t be able to emotionally charge their base. So they use inflammatory words to ruffle the feathers that keep funding flowing in.

  • Michael Hampton

    Oh Tony. Once again you think you are far more important than you are. Our desire to be treated equally has absolutely nothing to do with you. We don’t even think about you or your “religion” while we ask for the dignity of not being thrown out of our homes or fired from our jobs.

  • RoFaWh

    Two responses straight from the gut:

    Oh, shut up, you asshole!
    Fuck off!

  • Mimi

    I hope his name comes up when Anonymous publishes the list of 1,000 well known KKK members.

  • Kissmagrits

    I would never punish a Christian for any other reason than chronic “assholism”.

  • Amanda Wagner
