Tony Perkins Continues To Remain Silent On Allegations He Covered Up Sexual Assault By Gay Ohio Republican

The New York Times reports:

Ohio conservatives had considered Mr. Goodman a rising star, said Tom Zawistowski, president of the conservative Ohio Citizens Political Action Committee, which endorsed Mr. Goodman last year. “We felt that he had some conservative credentials,” Mr. Zawistowski said. “We don’t have a problem with someone that has a homosexual lifestyle,” he added. “That’s their decision. That’s their right.” But he said the allegation about an unwanted sexual advance had “tipped the scales.”

The Post, citing letters and emails, reported that conservative leaders knew that Mr. Goodman was accused of touching an 18-year-old in 2015. One of those leaders, Tony Perkins, is the president of the Family Research Council, an advocacy group that says “homosexual conduct” is “by definition unnatural.” He urged Mr. Goodman not to run for office but did not make the allegations public, The Post reported. Mr. Perkins and media representatives of the council did not respond to emails and phone calls on Sunday.

Perkins has also not yet commented on the Roy Moore scandal. His most recent tweet from four days ago was met with responses demanding answers about the Goodman coverup.

  • Sam_Handwich

    Can’t we just be thankful that he’s finally shut up?

    Pass the turnip.

    • Silver Badger

      1000 thumbs up!

    • Joseph Miceli

      Ah, but why settle for that when he can be disgraced and unemployed, too. It won’t make up for all the children he’s hounded to suicide, but it’s a start.

    • Randy503

      Absolutely. For a guy who loves to hear himself pontificate about morality and law and politics, it’s nice to not see his face all over the news with all these sexual harassment issues.

  • Ernest Endevor

    He’s still drying out his house.

  • Jonathan Smith

    “I did it for Gawd!”

  • Boreal

    “We felt that he had some conservative credentials.”
    And that is the only criteria conservative piggies care about: someone who hates teh gays, abortion and will vote in favor of tax cuts.

    I doubt Toni PerKKKins will respond to this ever.

    • It also means that they thought they could coerce him to vote however they want.

  • CanuckDon

    What can he say? “I thought he was safe in my closet”?

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    Now we know why God destroyed Perkins’ house in the flood.

    • Jonathan Smith

      Because Perkins is an asshole?

      • Silver Badger

        At least God has a sense of humor.

        • Boreal

          She’s a feisty bitch sometimes.

    • Snarkaholic

      Wasn’t his church damaged as well?

      • David Walker

        No, I think the 1st National Bank survived.

          Boom! 😉

    More than ever, I’d like a look into his closet.

        Don’t forget hate…. pure unadulterated hate.

          So true…including SELF-hatred.

          That’s a little bit of competition, but Ted Cruz is still the most punchable.

        • JCF

          I think you meant “worst”?

    • Todd20036

      You know, he remains silent because molesting children is not as bad as electing a democrat, and those kids probably deserved it.
      I’m being sarcastic, but that’s the overwhelming views of today’s Nazis.

      • Boreal

        He also remains silent because admissions of guilt don’t generate cash flow.

      • Randy503

        “Wes may have “chosen” to be a homo, but he’s OUR homo, dammit! So are not going after him.” says Tony.

    • Christopher
      • Todd20036

        Loved that movie

  • TrueWords

    As soon it was known publicly that he sought out and enjoyed sex with someone of the same sex Tony Perkins and his minions want nothing to do with him and have nothing to say…

    Tony Perkins and others like him believe in the closet; pride in accepting and embracing who you are is NOT on their agenda

      Lol !

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Pedophilia is a CONservative problem.
      They are enablers and then they cover it up!
      Shameful!!

      • JCF

        Truthfully, it’s a human problem. Conservatives are just more hypocritical about it!

    • jerry

      The crux of the problem is they still think it’s some flippant choice or whim: Ohio Citizen’s PAC “…someone who has a homosexual lifestyle. That’s their decision.”

  • BobSF_94117

    But he said the allegation about an unwanted sexual advance had “tipped the scales.”

    And the last time they dropped a straight man accused of merely making unwanted advances was when exactly?

    • Jonathan Smith

      Never, 2017

  • gaycuckhubby

    I wonder what does his bone good?

    I totally see him having a cashMaster that humiliates him verbally.*
    *Perkins is way too much of a pussy to physically act on his desires

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      I’ve seen many rumors about Tony on the internet – most involve the abuse of defenseless farm animals. Despicable!!
      No wonder Gawd flooded his home.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Perkins liked it too. He turned it into a sexual “Noah and the Arc” situation…
        Y’all read it online now so u know its true

  • TrollopeReader

    I’d send Tony a pithy tweet, but (per usual with conservatives) he blocked me long ago ….

    • geoffalnutt

      Ha! “a pithy tweet”?

      • TrollopeReader

        and how !!

        adjective

        1. (of language or style) concise and forcefully expressive. synonyms: succinct, terse, concise, compact, short (and sweet), … antonyms: verbose

        • Treant

          Wouldn’t all Tweets be pithy by the simple requirement of the format?

          Well, except for the forcefully expressive thing. “I had a poo” is pithy, but, thankfully, not particularly expressive.

          • TrollopeReader

            No …You should see some of the non-pithy Tweets (even at 140 characters, let alone the 280) !!

          • Treant

            I suppose that’s true! My mother can turn a limerick into a two-hour tale.

            “Where would you like me to drag the tarp of leaves?”

            “Well, for those I’m thinking you can deposit them…just make sure to rake them up thoroughly from the entire area…”

    • Jefe5084

      I’m more familiar with Trump’s pissy tweets.

  • TCinBerkeley

    Maybe one of those CNN talking heads could bring it up the next time they have him on to cover “both sides”.

    • liondon#iamnotatraitor

      So Tony there are some who claim molesting a 14 yo is bad…we brought you on to give us a different perspective .

        Alabama official defends Roy Moore over paedophilia allegations citing age difference between Joseph and Mary,. Jesus’ parents.

        • David Walker

          That should just about cover it. So similar, so innocent, so full of shit.

        • Chucktech

          Being raised Catholic, I was taught indoctrinated that Joseph and Mary didn’t do the dirty, that God and the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary. I thought that was the general consensus among christians. Do these Alabama hillbillies think Joseph fucked Mary to get her pregnant with Jeezy? Because that’s the only way their excuse for Roy the Pig Moore makes sense.

          • jerry

            I never understood their permanent virgin status for Mary, considering that Jesus supposedly had 4 or 5 other siblings. And they also gave that status to Mary’s mother Anne.

  • Nate

    I hope enough dirt comes out and Tony Perkins finally goes down.

    • Reality.Bites

      Both you and his wife.

    • Randy503

      Not on me he doesn’t!

  • Wayne

    Does Mr. Goodman have a first name?

    • Silver Badger

      Wes. Probably short for Wesley.

      • TrollopeReader

        should be wuss.

    • OdieDenCO

      mud

    • TrollopeReader

      in the olden days … Goodman was what a man was called (cf Hawthorne’s Young Goodman Brown)

      noun

      1. the male head of a household.

      of course, the first name could be Bergdof ….

  • skyweaver

    I’m happy to know that the GOP has no problem with homosexuality

    • djcoastermark

      “Lifestyle” that is.

    • Boreal

      Oh they do but predators get more news coverage than being gay does.

  • sfjohn

    tony’s a coward

  • Leo

    OT. Noah Rothman of Commentary magazine on Morning Joe…UGH. Like the closeted stepson that inherited daddy’s company and has no idea what he’s doing. If he blurted out “let them eat cake” at random moments I wouldn’t blink. His preening, his greased hair, his sneering, UGH.

  • geoffalnutt

    “That’s their decision…” No, it’s NOT, you idiot.

  • Harveyrabbit

    “Today’s prescription: Take time to laugh and have fun – it will do your bones good!”

    I’d like to know specifically what bone he’s referring to.

    • liondon#iamnotatraitor

      You misspelled boner.

  • Gigi

    I’ve reached out to Perkins via email and on social media, asking why he didn’t turn Goodman over to the police after he was made aware that he’d sexually assaulted a young, 18-year-old man. I also asked if he knew that Josh Duggar was a paedophile when he hired him to be his LGBT attack dog at the FRC. Haven’t heard back. If I do I’ll let y’all know.

    • Jonathan Smith

      Don’t hold your breath 😂

    • Reality.Bites

      As the young man was 18 it was rightly his decision whether or not to call the police.

      I’m sure Tony influenced that decision, of course.

  • Wait, a conservative is acknowledging that someone has a right to be gay? When did they change positions on that?

    • Boreal

      After he was exposed as something worse, a predator.

    • Bluto

      When being infected with the ghey is better than being a pedo.

    • Jonathan Smith

      They have a right to be gay, provided they are a)married to a woman, b)anti-abortion and c)don’t get caught

      • Silver Badger

        Most specifically c)

        • Jonathan Smith

          A dead girl or a live boy?😈

    • Gustav2

      Don’t believe it. It is what is “legal,” not what they believe.

  • Jonathan Smith

    I mean i’my not freaking…..ok, I’m freaking
    WTF is he still in the OR?
    Calm………

    • Silver Badger

      You can’t rush Quality.

      • Jonathan Smith

        Yes. You bloody well can.
        Give me back my husband!

    • Silver Badger

      I gots to go to work now. May the force be with you.

    • Treant

      Everything always takes longer than you think! Just to have a stupid gallbladder removed took 45 minutes due to the scans necessary and getting the doctor in there.

  • Halou
  • Tor

    Goodman is not gay, even if he has sex with men. Gay is an honorific reserved for people who respect themselves and others. They don’t turn against their own.

    • Boreal

      He is a homosexualist.

      • Opinion Sousaphones

        “Pervert” might apply.

        • Boreal

          I want to use their word to describe them.

  • Boreal
    • prixator

      I wish they would poroofread these things before they send them out.

      Or, maybe they’re writing in the vernacular of the religious right sheeple?

  • Boreal
  • fuow

    ‘Homosexual Lifestyle’.
    What is wrong with these people?????!

    • Jeffg166

      “The Christian Lifestyle”.

    • Jmdintpa

      Oh honey it’s a lifestyle alright lol. Religion eats the brain.

    • BearEyes

      It’s a 2-fer
      Slam the gays and maintain the cover-up

    • Gustav2

      My dear, it is called “Conservative Political Correctness.” It is the approved language. PC is not just for liberals.

  • Gigi

    Take a moment to visit the FRC fb page and let them know what you think of Perkins covering up the sexual assault of an 18-year-old man. Your comment won’t make it past moderation, but the person reading it will know how you feel.

  • Henry Auvil

    “We don’t have a problem with someone that has a homosexual lifestyle,” he added. “That’s their decision.”

    FUCK YOU! Being a homosexual is NOT a “lifestyle” and it’s NOT something a person decides.

    • IDavid

      Actually it is, straight people do it every day.

    • Randy503

      Oh sure, he’s fine with a closeted homo who keeps it quiet and pretends he’s straight with his married wife. But an out and proud gay man? NFW.

  • Gustav2

    Tom Zawistowski is lying.

    Just in case anyone thought being a gay conservative is electable in Goodman’s rural district. Otherwise, why would Goodman need the PC beard?

  • Belthazar
  • Paul

    Tony likes them young too.

  • -M-

    Suddenly OCPAC don’t have a problem with someone being gay when the antigay quisling they supported is exposed as a serial harasser of other men.

    • Blueflash

      It’s not that Perkins and the evangelical bigots don’t have a problem with it and Perkins would have wanted to keep it secret that Goodman was gay regardless of any harassment. A prerequisite of moral condemnation is choice and it’s pretty damned difficult for people to believe the gay-hating Christian right’s nonsense, that same-sex orientation is chosen, when one of their very own is revealed to be gay.

      • -M-

        Any friend or colleague of Perkins is homosexual, not gay.

        • Blueflash

          Agreed. I understand the distinction, but I’m always reluctant to use the word “homosexual”. It connotes pathology and that’s why the haters love to use it.

  • GanymedeRenard

    It bears repeating:

    This animal. This cretin. This travesty. This demon. This parasite. This blight. This twisted purveyor of evil. This insidious enemy of everything for which Christ stood. This sickening mule. This heartless charlatan. This shameless huckster. This vile opportunist. This creator of human suffering. This trafficker in pain. This braying bully. This puffing affront to decency.
    This preening, flag-waving goon.
    This grinning, slavering creature who, in exchange for money, induces children to commit suicide.
    This odorous, rotten chum pretending he’s nourishment.
    This lover of hate.
    If you’re a Christian who actually understands and cares about Christ, please tell anyone who will listen that Tony Perkins is to Christianity what a slimy, chewing worm is to a perfectly wonderful apple.
