Tony Perkins: Unlike Romney And McCain, The Trump Campaign Didn’t Fight Us On Anti-LGBT Issues [VIDEO]

Miranda Blue reports at Right Wing Watch:

In a conference call for Ohio pastors organized by Citizens for Community Values today, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins urged listeners to rally their congregations to support Donald Trump in the presidential election, warning that if Hillary Clinton becomes president, the nation will become a “very, very hostile environment” for Christians. But a Trump presidency, he said, would give the church space to save a country that’s “hanging by a thread over a raging fire.”

Perkins, who boasted that he “wrote a large portion” of the Republican Party’s platform at the GOP convention in Cleveland this year, said that Trump’s campaign was the only Republican presidential campaign in the past 12 years not to put up a fight as he attempted to insert his hardline anti-LGBT and anti-abortion-rights stances into the party platform.

“I have had to fight every Republican campaign, including George W. Bush’s campaign, John McCain’s, Mitt Romney’s, on the platform over life issues, marriage issues, human sexuality,” he said. “I’ve had to fight every campaign except Donald Trump’s campaign. They actually worked with us on the platform, in fact whipped, meaning gathered votes, on one of my amendments on the Johnson Amendment.”

          I see that Tony’s been dipping into the Clairol Nice’n Easy Natural Light Caramel Brown again. He’d been letting some gray peek through after the flood, but apparently that old ego devil Satan has tempted him back to the Dye Side.

        lol. Works for me.

    • disQusTed

      He knows it.

  • barrykyle415

    Of course they didn’t fight them. Trump and his folks likely told them everything they wanted to hear. It’s not like Trump will feel obliged to honor that if he were elected. He wouldn’t give them the time of day.

    • Reality.Bites

      I know – this is among the most reassuring things about Trump I’ve ever heard. If it’s true.

    • bkmn

      The only thing in the GOP platform that the Trump team cared about was the section about the Ukraine.

      • Gerry Fisher


    • Uncle Mark

      Perkins is just one of the ‘Brown Shirts’ to Trump, and we all know what happened to them just as Hitler was seizing power.

    • David Walker

      Part of the lovely Tony PerKKKins’ problem(s) is that he thinks he’s a major player and that the Drumpf will show his gratitude through some particularly wonderful for the two Corinthians. Why Tony doesn’t grasp is that Drumpf has this demonstrable record of not honoring promises, not doing the payment thing, and really couldn’t care less about anybody…ANYBODY… after the election. I think you’ve put yourself and your fellow grifters in a good position to be thrown under his election bus (should the unthinkable happen) because he doesn’t care. Tony and fellow haters don’t mean shit to him. Only he means shit to him.

      • abel

        Exactly. And NO, they DON’T realize this. Trump can’t fix anything, and he doesn’t keep promises, except those relating to his vengeance. You can count on those. So if, God help us, the asshole wins, Clinton should definitely hightail it to some obscure island.

  • shellback

    the nation will become a “very, very hostile environment” for Christians.
    Yeah! Ship them all to Russia.

    • McSwagg

      The Russian Orthodox Church is hostile to all other x-stain denominations. The Evil-jelly-cals won’t find succor there.


    Of course not, Putin loves that shit.

    • RoFaWh

      It has struck me that Putin’s objectives, to cause political dissension and fragmentation in the west, have been well worked on by the American facists.

      When was the Tea Party taken over by Putin’s operatives?

      • boatboy_srq

        When was the Teahad NOT ripe for such a move?

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Trump also let Tony keep his hood on during the meetings. So there’s that.

    • Earl

      If you were fucking Tony, you’d insist on him wearing a hood too.

      I’d wear one too, wouldn’t want anyone to know that I would fuck someone like him.

  • I found this gem. I doubt anything is gonna change the Green Party dolt who thinks they have a perfect candidate (even though she’s probably more evil than Hillary), but at least you can use this argument the next time one of them spews the “Hillary didn’t support gay marriage” line. People minds can change and the Democratic candidates were always more willing to listen.

    • Dramphooey

      It won’t because right now Green is all about cis white privilege. They think they’re safe from a Trump candidacy.

  • John P.

    I have to keep in mind that if I didn’t read JMG, i would most likely never know who Tony Perkins is…

    • Joseph Miceli

      But Tony Perkins would still be working to disenfranchise you even if you never heard of him.

    • Silver Badger

      Tony will be long remembered in Denver. We still have a pot of tar and some feathers waiting for him.

  • delk

    Tony, would you consider shoving your fingers into your four year old sister’s vagina the same as grabbing a pussy?

    • TampaDink

      Nah. He considers that just business as usual in a family with deeply held religious beliefs that always include denying rights to others. They just have a slightly different phrase for this particular vile act….”poking a kitten”.

  • bkmn
  • Michael Smith

    That can’t be right. Homocons have insisted that Trump is great on LGBT rights. They couldn’t be wrong.

    • Chucktech

      Somebody’s not telling the truth…

    • Dramphooey

      That’s the great thing about Trump as a candidate. Somehow, they’re both right.

  • safari

    They certainly like the metaphor of human(s) hanging over a pit of fire. It’s served them well over the centuries, but they need a new slogan.

  • greenmanTN

    It’s all fun and games until somebody puts out a life.

    • dcurlee

      They don’t care no matter what they say to the contrary

    • Matthew Delemos

      Except that notion *is* their fun and games. They worship death, not life.

  • Jake

    Romney and McCain fought back on LGBT rights? What planet?

    • Chucktech

      I think what he means is that when the christians put public hangings and internment camps for homos in the platform, McCain and Romney gave them a “Tsk, tsk, tsk, that’s not very nice” upbraiding.

      • abel

        That sounds about right.

  • Jeffrey
    • EweTaw

      Awk! My eyes! My eyes!

        Hey, a friend once walked in on me rubbing one out. But he stayed, because he was a true friend.

        • Todd20036

          I like your friends.

          I like you.

          • Jeffrey

          Pics or it didn’t happen – you are allowed to do a reinactment

        • dcurlee

          From your photo I would have stayed also 😜

    • BudClark

      ROFLMQAO. Osteen needs to look up “rub it out” in the Urban Dictionary!

      • BobSF_94117

        I’ve never liked that phrase.

        • Mike__in_Houston

          I don’t care for it either; actually, I’ve never heard “rub it out” in that context, just “rub one out.” And I like “junk” even less; I mean I like the word “junk” even less.

          • gothambear

            Agree 100% on both – I think “rub it out” is an expression straight women use to describe male masturbation since it seems more genteel, perhaps…?

Down your throat. Snark snark. And he’s SOOOOO cute. Sure got a purty mouth!! And I love it when Jeezus cums first!! I know… I’m going to hell. Boo hooo!

      • David Walker

            There’s a reason I have all 32 teeth at my age. It’s not just the brushing and flossing.

    • Rt1583

      If I rub one out in the name of jesus is it still a sin?

  • boatboy_srq

    Of course tRump didn’t argue. He told you exactly what you wanted to hear. Just like he told LCR what THEY wanted to hear. The “play to his audience” factor for tRump is pathological.

    If there were ever a need for evidence that the FundiEvangelical Xtian movement is a crock, this should be enough.

  • Canadian Observer

    As a strictly educational enterprise, I would be quite willing to be part of a group willing to demonstrate to Perkins, in person, what constitutes a hostile anti-Chrisitan environment. Actually, wouldn’t have to be as part of a group…

    • EweTaw

      Ya know, if Christians weren’t such fascist assholes I’d probably like them.

      • Canadian Observer

        To each their own. I still think they taste too bitter unless you season the hell out of them. Maybe double up on the cumin and the cayenne.

        • EweTaw

          I said “probably” — the whole idea is theoretical.

    Like Tonetta is gonna wail any louder or longer when Trump ignores the almighty Xtian anti-LGBTQ ‘plank’. Bitch is on the TV every other day and no one really gives a shit now.

  • TrollopeReader

    Awww…. you’re patting yourself on the back — a narcissist like Donnie. Bitch.

  • SoCalGal20

    Trump was too busy getting that Pro-Kremlin, anti-NATO plank into the platform to pay attention to what you were doing, Tony.

    In other news, here’s the last of PPP’s public polling – MI, CO, VA.

    Early voting numbers for those states (in MI it’s absentee voting, technically not “early voting”).

    Early voting numbers for the states that PPP dropped polls for earlier today.

      It may not be true, but this all makes me happy and sort of calm.

  • PickyPecker
  • Rex

    Doesn’t that tell you something Tony? Trump will say anything to get support behind him, but he’s con man that will sell you down the river faster than you can say “praise Jesus”. Trump couldn’t care less about you and your agenda. He couldn’t care less about the LGBT community. He cares about one thing – himself. Some other Republican candidates may have at least understood that LGBT citizens are CITIZENS of the United States. You, Tony, are a piece of shit just like Trump and I hope you both get your ass handed to you.

    And Perkins reciprocated by not complaining about Trump being a con man and a sexual predator. When Trump goes low, Perkins goes lower.

      Has anyone asked Tony if he will be counseling his prodigy Josh Duggar through his pending divorce?

        He’ll blame the wife ergo it will be as if the marriage and divorce never happened. Praise Jeebus!

      • abel

        Josh’s wife Anna may be as stupid as a box of rocks, for all I know, but I sure hope she escapes from Duggarland. And takes her kids with her.

        • bkmn

          It sounds as though she has a new group of friends (probably neighbors) that have talked some sense into her (also probably against what her father would have wanted her to do). Let’s hope she cuts the cord with the fundie crowd for good.

    But both sides are the same. Stone face emoji.

    That’s because the Trump campaign doesn’t give the first shit about loony christians like you.

    If, in bizarro world, Trump wins, you and your god goofy sheep will be ignored, if not thrown under the bus, just like Moron did.

    • Friday

      Actually, if Trump and the Republicans won, he would probably be in a ‘Persecute the LGBTs’ echo chamber and the fact he’d also probably screw the Christian Right toadies any given day would be of little consolation to us.

  • another_steve

    Man and I made a quick stop at the local booze shop today to stock up for Tuesday night. My intention is to go into a semi alcohol-induced trance on Tuesday night, but not severe enough so that I can’t keep track of the electoral count.

    Any other recommendations re how to proceed would be much appreciated.

    • Pot.

      • another_steve

        Can’t do pot and booze at the same time, hon.

        Makes me queasy in the stomach.

          Booze is bad. Pot is good. The choice is simple really.

          • another_steve

            I took abuse as a teenager.

            I was always booze-prone. My buddies were pot-heads.

          • Silver Badger

            Sorry to here that. Many of us had to deal with abuse. In fact, in our generation, it was the norm for gay kids. It made us stronger. Tougher. I’ve read your posts. I know you know of what I speak!

          • another_steve

            I know you understand, SB. 😉

            I was very androgynous as a youth. In my 20s I had a job that involved interviewing members of the public. Half of my interviewees referred to me as “miss.”

            “Thank you, miss — you’ve been very kind.”

            I took it in stride.

            Today I’m still fem (and proud of it), though most (not all) people refer to me as “sir.” 😉

        We have them at the ready, babe.

        Not sure, though, that I want food to dilute the alcohol effect on Tuesday night… but we’ll see.

        • PickyPecker

          Don’t drink on an empty stomach. The next day’s effects are terrible.

          • another_steve

            Hon, my esophagus is so scarred after a lifetime of it that I’d have to drink pure rubbing alcohol on an empty stomach to feel even the slightest discomfort.

          • McSwagg

            Your discomfort and you would be short lived. Isopropanol (rubbing alcohol) is highly toxic. I’d recommend against it.

        I’m going to be kicking myself if I forget the taco-making stuff in all the fuss. 🙂

      I would prefer to be knocked out Tuesday evening and then, if Trump wins, someone can just finish the job. I do not want to be awakened.

      If I hadn’t already voted for her, which I did last week.

        No, I think they mean a Satan worshipping, Hansel and Gretel kind of witch.

  • Anybody who thinks Donald is the most pro-LGBT candidate the Republicans have ever run for President is either a craven liar or a deluded idiot…or more likely both.

    • On the other hand, Tony doesn’t seem to realize that the entire basis of Trumpy’s campaign is he says whatever he perceives his audience wants to hear. The only position he’s ever held his ground on has been his desire to be America’s authoritarian fascist dictator rather than President. He already has stated he thinks elections are a waste of time and money.

    We already knew that the dumpster doesn’t really want to be President – Mike Pence is really going to be running the Executive Branch. The dumpster will spend his term running around promoting himself, hosting “state” dinners with his closest celebrity friends, and generally continuing his lavish lifestyle – and making it even more lavish since he’ll be using OPM (ours).

    And now we learn that he’ll basically rubber-stamp anything and everything the crazy Republicans throw at him. When Pence can drag his sorry ass into the Oval Office to sign the bills.

    • Friday

      He’d fuck things up too badly and too quickly for much pomp and circumstance. (Also he probably overestimates how many other world leaders are crazy, so ‘state dinners’ would involve Putin and various racketeers and Fundies. You know the Queen won’t be dropping by.) Loose cannons make crappy puppets.

      Funny thing is probably the most of them just wish they could *find* more LGBT people to persecute, that’s why they had to look to peripheral wedding services and Catholic teachers getting *married* for people they could whine about being persecuted by not being able to persecute.

  • jm2

    so? what? you’re actually telling us that Trump really hates queers? i think we already knew that from his various interactions on t.v. both during the campaign and his own shows that were jokes…

    • Friday

      He’s trying to convince the Fundies and general deplorables that Trump *really really hates queer people with a cross and two Corinthians on top.* So they’ll basically overlook he’s the embodiment of their self0-fulfilling Antichrist prophecies.

    “Trump only tricked Tony Perkins into *thinking* he is anti-gay by being anti-gay!!!!” — Statement by Log Cabin Republicans.

  • coram nobis

    And some corroboration, in an earnest plea over at Slate.

    Four years ago, I wrote you an open letter, arguing that, while I could appreciate your long loyalty to the Republican Party, voting for Mitt Romney meant voting against the interests of your gay son, my best friend since college. This year, the stakes for our nation and the world are even higher than they were then, and Donald Trump’s record on LGBTQ equality can seem insignificant considering his record—and character—when it comes to so many other critical issues.

    To me, though, and to your son, it’s anything but insignificant. That’s not only because Trump’s positions on LGBTQ rights are far worse than they may seem. It’s also because one of the things I’ve grasped in newly visceral ways …

    Tony Perkins implies a scary scenario for sure, but if he really trusts that Donald Trump isn’t 100% focused on Donald Trump’s wealth and power accumulation and is really in the troglodyte religious right’s pocket, then Tony is far less sage than I thought and as delusional as most clear thinking LGBTQ think.

  • Self hating closet case says what?

    Sure, pastors, violate your 501c3 status and make your church the taxable for-profit it is.

  • The only hostility between Fundamentalist Christians and Hillary Clinton will be coming from the Fundies.

    and we are fed a lie continually that trump is somehow going to protect lgbt rights. and there are lgbt who buy this crap!! oh what a sad day 🙁

  • Richard B

    I am tired of this guy making trouble for our kind..
    Tony Perkins is a potent enemy and welds significant influence with the power brokers in republican politics.
    He needs to be discredited.
    His life’s work is to marginalize the LGBTQ community through government public policy and empowering religious zealots to legally discriminate at will.
    Every homophobic bigot has a vulnerability and you can safely bet Tony is hiding a secret.
    We need to conduct thorough research, ferret out what Tony Perkin’s secret vulnerability is, and then discredit this colossal bigot off the playing field for good.

    You know in a movie when the hero says, “It’s quiet. Too quiet.” Perkins, if he had any wit, would be saying, “That was easy. Too easy.”

    “I have had to fight every Republican campaign,…except Donald Trump’s campaign”
    This only proves that those campaigns were run by people with a semblance of intelligence.

  • Rick James Brown


    Of course he didn’t! Because he CLUELESS about what it takes to win…or he would have fought you tooth-and nail over anti-LGBT language (see also: Gov. McCrory)….and it’s just 1 reason of a zillion Trump is going to go down to a spectacular defeat on Tuesday, and (happily for us) drag you along with him. FRC’s remaining days are few Tony. “Enjoy” them while you can.

    If Trump and Perkins are men of God, I’m happy not to be in their company.

    I wish I could say I was surprised.

    the Johnson Amendment…..snigger

  • John Calendo

    By all means, Tony, get rid of the Johnson Amendment, the law that forbids churches from endorsing or opposing political candidates. Currently, it’s a law “more honored in the breach.” So let the churches openly campaign. Let them overstep and overreach and expose themselves for what many of them are, political operations.

    It won’t take long after that for a Congress, differently constructed than the present Republican stranglehold, to argue that there no longer is a rationale for not taxing these big-money political actors. Churchs woul have to pay to play, like everyone else. Taxed churches would quickly cut down on religion as an easy avenue for get-rich-quick con men … like Tony Perkins.
