Tony Perkins & Other Anti-LGBT Crackpots Form “Religious Liberty” Advisory Board For Ted Cruz

Two weeks ago Marco Rubio recruited a slew of anti-LGBT activists to sit on his “religious liberty” advisory board. This afternoon hate group leader Tony Perkins announced that he will chair a similar advisory board for Ted Cruz. Curiously, Heritage Foundation hater Ryan Anderson sits on both boards. From Perkins:

Ted Cruz announced today the creation of a 19-member Religious Liberty Advisory Council, which will guide his policies to protect religious liberty and reverse the unprecedented attacks on freedom both at home and abroad.

I am honored to chair this council at such a critical time in the history of this nation. Never before has religious freedom been more endangered than it is today under the policies of the Obama administration. We need a president who upon entering office will immediately begin reversing the damage done to our freedom to believe and our ability to live according to those beliefs.

While Ted has been effective on an array of national issues, he hasn’t strayed from his theme, which is that 2016 is going to be a ‘religious liberty election.’ This continues to resonate with Americans, who open their newspapers every day to a new story of religious hostility. I am confident that Ted Cruz, who has spent his career defending religious liberty in the courts and in the Senate, can be trusted and is prepared to make freedom mean something again in America.

Unfortunately, the future of freedom in America rests largely in the hands of the courts, which is why we need a president who can spot liberal jurists, and who will fight to ensure constitutionalists who respect the rule of law are seated on the Supreme Court. The formation of this Religious Liberty Advisory Council will be an encouragement to the American people. Help is on the way.

    Obviously, American theofascists see this Presidential election as their best hope ever for turning America into a theocracy. They’ve made great inroads during the administrations of all the Republican Presidents beginning with Richard Nixon, but this election — this election they see as their golden opportunity.

    The Cialis sales force parading as “cable TV news” (where the majority of Americans get their news today) is afraid to broach this subject. Might lose their sponsors some customers.

    But progressives and people who honor the line between Church and State must continue getting the word out.

It has has one of the finest Medical Centers in the Country, with a Superior Children’s Hospital. It also partners with the VA and the VA Hospital in Nashville is part of the Vanderbilt Campus complex.

    Perhaps if religious extremists kept their mythology in their homes and churches and weren’t hostile to the rest of us, others wouldn’t be hostile towards them.

    That being said, I just got back from the grocery story and I passed two churches along the way. Strangely enough, neither of them had tape around the entrances or any other barricade barring people from their worship.

    These assholes are bound and determined to put gay people back in the closet and force them to take their discrimination quietly. Well, no more. If tony and his ilk are determined to push, they are going to be pushed right back. Hard, fast, and quite decisively.

    • Richard, another Canuck

      Both Cruz and Rubio are taking their lead here from Iran in setting up the Religious oversight of all the Government does.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        That is part of what makes them so dangerous. These people can never be allowed to get in any position of power. They’ll start with gays and make their way down the list; straight allies, feminists, atheists, the educated, etc. If I wanted to live in Iran, I’d move there. If I wanted to live in a theocracy, I’d find one and live there.

        These people don’t want religious freedom (which they have as they damn well know), they want every American to kow tow to their belief system and I will never do that.

      • David Walker

        And what if the horses panic in the streets?

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        I completely agree. It’s distasteful and I’m sick of them shoving their mythology down my throat. If I want to read about mythology, I’ll go to my local library or the library in my home that holds hundreds of books about world mythology, legends, fairy tales, and tall tales.

        All kidding aside, I disowned a relative who is a religious extremist because she was such a bad influence on my children. I’ve heard that she’s taken to preaching on street corners and I wouldn’t want anyone’s kids exposed to her.

        I personally don’t care what they do in their churches or the privacy of their homes.

  • Secure

    If Cruz loses in Texas tomorrow, my year-long quest to help end his campaign will be complete! You Cruz, You Lose!

    • But in all seriousness, isn’t Cruz less electable in the general election? If Cruz wins the nomination, I can’t see him winning in November.

      • tristram

        Rubio is more electable than Cruz and every bit as dangerous to the lgbt community (and arguably more dangerous to the nation given his espoused warmongering, shoot-first foreign policy).

        • Homo Erectus

          Rubio can’t possibly beat Drumpf in his home state (and Florida is a winner-take-all state with 95 delegates up for grabs. Water boy just doesn’t have the fan base.

      • Secure

        You may have a point there, it’s a bit of a gamble either way I guess. I still hate Cruz more!

        • Jimmie Z

          Now if we could just find a way to oust him from the Senate!
          Perhaps The Donald will follow through on his birther lawsuit,
          — and WIN!?

    • clay

      But if Crus take Texas, and a couple others (which looks increasingly unlikely), I’ll lose my dream of a contested brokered(less) convention.

      • McSwagg

        Cruz leads the latest polls in Texas (and Arkansas).

        • Baby_Raptor

          Cruz is in the lead in this hellhole because he wants to “empower Christians.”

          Meanwhile, several of the local churches have been holding meetings about an “inevitable” Constitutional amendment ensuring that anyone caught being “sexually perverse”–IE not cis/straight and only having sex with no birth control while married–gets the death penalty and people who they want to kill are funding their bullshit via taxes.

          Yup, Christers in Arkansas are SO victimized.

          • clay

            Rev. “Masculine Christianity” Jeffers (take a look at his pic for a frightening image of “masculine”) has endorsed Turmp because he’s decided that Christians should go with power.

    • McSwagg

      Cruz is polling comfortably ahead of Trump and Rubio in Texas (and Arkansas). He is likely to win in Texas and the Circus will continue for at least a few more weeks.

      • Homo Erectus

        Rubio is toast.

        • clay

          at least until the middle of March– let’s see if he’s successful taking some of the more “moderate” big-delegate count states.

    • KnownDonorDad

      Same here. But FiveThirtyEight is predicting a Cruz win in Texas.

      • Reality.Bites

        However the results in the other states may make that irrelevant.

        • McSwagg

          Texas has the largest number of delegates of all the Super Tuesday states with over 150. Trump will have to run the tables on the other states to offset a loss in Texas.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      There is a definite chance of that happening. Two Texas polls out today have Cruz with only a 3 point and a 1 point lead, so he may not even win Texas. There’s a third poll that shows him 11 points ahead of Trump, but that one is by Fox, so I’d take it with a hefty dose of salt. I can’t see any reason for him to continue in the race if he doesn’t even win Texas. Trump has double-digit leads in almost all the other states voting tomorrow.

          • Gustav2

            They need 34 to pass the call for the convention.

    • JT

      “Religious liberty” is synonymous with “freedom to persecute those who don’t accept our beliefs.”

      • wmforr

        Not to forget that in recent polls 30% of Republicans think that it should be illegal to be a Muslim. This is their understanding of religious liberty?

    That’s pretty much the audience for this kind of BS – old people who have not transferred to digital media. Meanwhile the “threat” to religious liberty Tony highlights has not changed since 1964, when our country rightly concluded that discrimination based on religious lifestyle choice (e.g., “restricted” businesses that refused to serve Jews) shouldn’t be allowed.

  • i have to admit, all my mean high school impulses come out when i read about these guys. they really do, and i feel bad about it cause i was not always popular in high school. just like these asshats.

    i wasn’t popular for a lot of reasons, maybe i even earned some of those. but i got over it, grew up and made friends and went to a good college, etc.

    i look at crooze and toni and i think, “gosh. you guys are still so very bitter. no one cool ever invited you to a party when you were young. the popular crowd gave you underwear snaps in the locker rooms, and the prom queen laughed when you asked her best friend out. and everyone in the hallway joined her.”

    trolls are trolls. they may have billions of dollars behind them, but the smell never changes. Beautiful size 5 runway model teenage me says, “hah. you’ll never be (student body) president, you idiot. and nobody goes to his xtian bible study group unless they are trying to get out of detention.” and no, i’m still not inviting either one of them to my party. when i was a college student, i threw many of those that people still talk about. i guess crooze can say the same, in that people still say, “oh god. do you remember when we had to close the door on him, and tell him it was a private study session? lol, what a troll.”

    This, in the unlikely event you care, is Carol Swain, Ph.D., part of the ‘religious liberty’ advisory board. She dismissed the David Duke endorsement of Trump as no big deal because it’s just ‘political correctness.’ Duke has probably sent her a queen-sized white bed sheet in appreciation.

    She teaches at Vanderbilt, widely regarded as a good school, at least in the mid-South, despite the fact that it’s in Ten Uh See.

    I’m confused, why are there so many homosexuals on Perkins board?

    Us older folks called these circle jerks.

  • Well, I’m sure Josh Duggar will provide good advice regarding good, ethical Christian sexual behaviors, to Ted Cruz…

  • I saw this nature documentary about flying fish. They will lay their eggs on a floating piece of debris like seaweed and it will get so clumped together others get caught up in it. The weight of the fish and eggs drags the caught fish and eggs down to the abyss.

    I’m not sure why this reminds me of it.

      Ultimately, this can only damage @RyanT in the long run, when Crud and Robotic are both declared losers [“long run” being later today, or mid-day tomorrow].

    Houston Chronicle reports on their front page that their Wednesday deliveries to homes and businesses will be delayed — so that they can capture all the results of Super Tuesday.

    Oh, “entrepreneur”? Good one. I’m gonna use that to explain those pesky gaps on my résumé.

    They’ve slipped in”and live according to those beliefs” so quietly we risk letting this become a right. Actually it is directly what the first forbids.

    In order to live according to their book, laws must change. Changing them means establishing religion.

    We cannot lose this point. Believe what you want. Act/live according to secular laws.

    We know they lie, time to point out whenever we have a voice what they are trying to do. Americans are too stupid to see this, we must tell them.

    Remember, the first protects us from government religion. It does not protect us from government laws!
