Family Research Council: Pray To Jesus That He Stops Godless Indoctrination By Transgender Servicemembers

Today’s prayer of the day from Tony Perkins:

Lord, you ordained use of “the sword” for national security and police protection a core role of civil government. You created the two distinct, biological sexes as fundamental to life and decreed that sexual anarchy is a serious sin with profound consequences to individuals and society. Lord, intervene! Prevent our military from further weakening and our society from further sexual anarchy via the godless indoctrination of our troops. Guide and govern our leaders in all three branches of government. You are our Judge. You are our Lawgiver; and You are our King; it is You who will save us! (Lev 18: all; Dt 20:1-9; Dt 22:5; 1 Chr 12:32-36; Is 33:22; Mt 19:4; Rom 13:1-5)

It’s been over a month and Perkins still refuses to comment on having covered up sexual assault by an Ohio GOP rep for whom Perkins had been fundraising that very evening.

  • Andrea King

    KKK sympathizer says what?

    • Sporkfighter

      He says he doesn’t like you, but he’s much wordier.

  • Sashineb

    “Lord, intervene!” Yeah, as if the LARD likes taking orders from him. Didn’t he learn that his prayers mean nothing, considering he had to use a boat to get away from the flood “of near-biblical proportions” that ruined his house?

    • “Aug 22, 2016 – Presidential candidate Donald Trump has donated $100,000 for flood relief to a Louisiana Baptist church where Family Research Council President Tony Perkins is serving as interim pastor.”

      Things that make me go hmmmmmm?
      Did they ever actually receive the funds?
      Wasn’t the “church” insured against flooding?
      What was the quid pro quo?
      Did trumP “donate” money to any other entities?

  • Treant

    Oh, shut up, Tony. FOAD.

    That is all.

  • bkmn

    Yes, please spend all day and night praying about it. You don’t need to do anything else.

    • Chuck in NYC

      Well, he’ll likely touch up his roots before bedtime, but he budgets for that.

      • Gianni

        🙂 Nothing like a good personal slam. 🙂 Actually, I never thought that he might be coloring his hair.

  • Del Sam

    Goodman was just trying to inject the holy spirit into them.

  • Todd Allis

    Ooh, sexual anarchy. That’s a nice phrase.

    • Paula

      I, for one, welcome the impending sexual anarchy.

      • Treant

        And I welcome our sexually anarchic overlords.

  • Sebastian

    why does everyone always forget about Intesex people, its not a small population (approx 1 in 1500 births), the “two distinct biological sexes” argument is in itself factually incorrect. their God created a wide variation.

    • safari

      Intersex people tend to want to be left alone.

      • Sebastian

        fair enough, Id rather not have Tony Perkins talk about me

        • Not talk about you is one thing, not recognizing that you even exist is a whole other issue…

      • scrubba

        Meet a Trans woman who wants to be left the hell alone too.

    • Treant

      Intersex folks are lucky in that sense, they don’t fall into the binary pathway, which means people like Tony can’t understand that they exist.

      If it isn’t simple and easy to understand, Tony literally does not see it; the pattern is too complicated.

      • Reality.Bites

        They don’t understand they exist, but they’re pretty sure they shouldn’t be allowed to use public washrooms

      • RaygunsGoZap

        He has the eyesight of a planarians. If only he had its brains

        • Treant

          And fortunately, he doesn’t have the ability to regenerate.

        • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

          Can we cut him in half and make two?

          • PhillyProfessor

            AVERT! One of him is bad enough!

          • McSwagg

            Can’t we at least cut off his tail and see if he grows a new one?

      • margaretpoa

        Like everything else their god “created”, gender and sexuality are represented on a range or scale, not at fixed points. But conservatives never were good with shades of grey.

        • In the years that I have been reading this blog I have come to realize that binary thinkers are represented on both ends of the spectrum. To me it seems like the further you are from a balanced center – whether “right” or “left” the more rigid and black & white your brain process and completely unable to recognize shades of grey.

      • skyweaver

        Yes, and he and Trump count on an extremely small attention span from frightened people who stopped being curious or thoughtful a really long time ago

      • scrubba

        The Evangelical Righteous don’t believe that Intersexed people even exist . I have asked and they’re speechless …..

    • Steverino

      Indeed. Male and female, not male or female.

    • peacfulseas inWA

      Don’t include me.I am very well acquainted with intersexuality.Now if you referring were Toneette and his kind well there’s only male and female,black / white.

    • clay

      You’re not in Tony’s instruction manual.

    • SFBruce

      I’ve wondered that very thing, but I think it’s probably pretty simple. For Tony and his crowd, there are no greys, no subtleties, no nuance. Just stark black or white; good or bad; moral or immoral. So the whole concept of intersex people just doesn’t fit into that simplistic view of the world.

      • Gianni

        Well, you have to admit that having everything in the world either this or that way and believing God ordained it all that way, really saves a lot of time that would be otherwise wasted on actual thinking.

        • cleos_mom

          Well, you have to admit that having everything in the world either this or that way

          No we don’t. It can be this way, that way or the other way.

          • Gianni

            True, YOU don’t have to admit anything. And no, it can’t be all of any one way.

      • Reality.Bites

        They literally insist that gay men don’t exist, we’re just sinners who can be easily returned to Jesus, even if we’re not Christian and never were.

        So of course they won’t admit intersex peopled exist.

      • JohnoFr

        Divorce for them is in the grey zone or invisible. Or let’s not talk about that !!!

  • AtticusP

    Projection.

    The only ones trying to indoctrinate people are asshole “Christians“ like you, Toni PerKKKins.

    ESAD

  • JWC

    I do not advocate violence in any manner, but I would enjoy seeing someone beat the crap oot of this evil little bigot

    • Gianni

      Nor do I. I just wouldn’t be bothered by it. I’d suspect that he provoked someone into busting him up.

    • Maybe god will catch him in the house on the next flood around.

    • Sporkfighter

      I’m looking for a random “act of God” . . . lightning, a falling tree, his house destroyed by a hurricane . . . .

      • McSwagg

        A suddenly appearing sinkhole seems appropriate.

  • netxtown

    there he is. I’ve been wondering where them flapping jaws have been. I tell you, watching tony yap is the easiest woody. the urge to face-fuck him is so overpowering – a real divine experience….

    • Joseph Miceli

      He’s been taking a little break while he hides from allegations that he covered for another sex offender. Wonder what goes on in HIS house!

  • me myself and I

    I’m praying to Jeebus that he strikes Tony Perkins with lightening, or maybe hits him with a meteorite. I think a video of that would get lots of youtube views.

    Unfortunately, I fear my prayers, like all of them, will go unanswered.

    • RobynWatts

      Well, there was that time that he did pray for a hurricane to wipe us out….

      And, behold…..Murphy’s Law! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cf75db048c116edaf7b7b1d87121ac63c88393919bce396591f978bf99218433.jpg

      • Joseph Miceli

        You say “Murphy’s Law,” I say God has a good aim.

      • Gianni

        Did he ever comment on that? Seems like his prayers came around to bite him in the ass.

        • RobynWatts

          He claimed that “God was testing his faith…..”

          More like “I was stupid enough to live in a flood zone.”

          • clay

            So, he was testing the Lord, his God.
            Well, boys and girls, the Bible tells us what Jesus would think of that.

  • Michael R
    • Sebastian

      <3

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Don’t tell Tony about the new commercial for the Marines.

    • Treant

      BWAHAHAHAHAHA! While I don’t tend to prefer tenors (the poor dears squeak so when you top them), I’ll make an exception in this case.

    • Gianni

      😀 Somebody, please get this to Tony’s inbox. It’s hilarious and he’ll be apoplectic.

    • Stogiebear

      When it was finished playing I got a suggestion for a cat video with this expression on its face. Pretty perfect.

    • Grumpy Old Man

      That sounded like Randy? was it.

  • Toot Sweet

    Another fucked up pseudo Christian spinning BS.

    • Friday

      Stop trying to tell us what Christians do is really to be blamed on non-Christians. Tell the freaking Christians if they ain’t actually acting right.

  • Thorn Spike

    Toni, why aren’t you praying for straight servicemen to be prosecuted for sexually assaulting our female military personnel?

    • Snarkaholic

      Because Phony doesn’t like girls.

      • Dan Patterson

        Miss Tonette is the biggest closet case on the planet.

        • Snarkaholic

          He probably doesn’t even like them as people.

  • Tomcat

    For god sake politicians, vote no on this trashy tax bill.
    Republicans could care less if any of you croak after they get their tax bill through.
    Send trump McConnell and Ryan a message that says you love America and it’s citizens and vote no or don’t vote at all.

  • Henry Auvil

    “Sexual anarchy.” That pretty much encapsulates all the progress we’ve made since the Summer of Love, through the gay rights movement, punk rock and all the subsequent enlightenment. HELL YEAH!!

    • Treant

      As I think about it, Sexual Anarchy would be a good garage band name.

      • clay

        Surely, it’s already been one.

      • edrex

        breaks loose in our house from time to time.

  • Tomcat

    So many newbs lately

    • Silver Badger

      I’ve noticed that. I remember being new and how great it felt to be accepted from the git go. I try to treat them kindly. Unless they’re trolls,

  • peacfulseas inWA

    Indoctrinate hell we recruit. Trade in that tired old gender.

  • thom

    Hopefully it’s the same god that listened to their prayers about the Alabama Senate race

    • clay

      . . . Mississippi flooding . . .
      . . . equal legal recognition of same-sex marriages . . .

    • Gianni

      So many have yet to figure out that most of the time, their prayers get them the opposite of what they begged for.

  • clay

    Because the US military always puts the most recent inductees in charge of training? What Marine Corps was PerKKKins in?

    • JWC

      what branch of service were any of these psuedo religious wingnuts ever in

      • clay

        I generally associate them with the Air Force (Academy), but Tony is an ex-Marine. (Yes, I know that’s that the ‘proper’ term; that’s why I chose it.)

        • JWC

          the shit you learn what he do bayonet gay children

      • Snarkaholic

        The Scare Farce

      • Friday

        Sometimes the Air Force. They have an indecent attraction to the nuclear arsenal.

        • TonberryPi

          The Air Force has been heavily infiltrated by Dominionists and their ilk.

  • Ninja0980

    Don’t you have sexual abusers to cover up for Tony?

    • Joseph Miceli

      Just one or two, but who’s counting?

      • GanymedeRenard

        Let’s see… Duggar, Goodman, Moore…

    • clay

      Tony’s just happy that the latest rotund, balding GOP guy caught fingering a girl wasn’t also one of his employees.

    • orion dumptee

      hes having enuff trouble jus ‘covering up’ with his comb-over.

  • Joseph Miceli

    Okay everybody! You know the words: Fuck YOU, Tony!

  • GanymedeRenard

    Hey, Perkkkins, trans troops are willing to sacrifice their lives to defend your freedom to spout your accursed bigotry, you son of a wretched harlot! Now take a knee, thank them for that and shut your confederate mouth the fuck up!

    Never forget:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/024490507df450432c36ca6d02ad3775a79fce671836d0008c090f8238a82005.jpg

  • William

    You have no power here. Be gone!

  • Gianni

    Why do these religious talking heads keep trying to prove to us that their fucking prayers don’t work? The actual message of the prayer: “Please God make everything and everyone we hate just go away so we can have the world just like we want it to be and, I swear, we’ll give you all the glory and praise and beg your forgiveness and thank you 24/7. Honest we will! Until the Rapture when You’ll take us all to heaven because we’ve been so good doing Your will.” Now, pass the collection plate.

    • Friday

      When they pray for their God to do something nasty, they’re really asking some other Christian lunatic or fanatic to hurt someone for them. (So they can deny any connection to the perpetrators.)

  • Adam Stevens

    Why hasn’t someone called the police on Perkins for covering up sexual assault? Isn’t that a crime? Isn’t he a criminal?

    • Reality.Bites

      Because the victim and his parents never reported the crime.

      • clay

        Because Tony told them he’d take care of it.

        And now we’re back full circle.

        • Reality.Bites

          Yes, but not in a way that involved the police. The boy who was assaulted was 18. It was his legal responsibility and his alone to go to the police. If a rape victim chooses not to go to the police, one has no right to do so on their behalf.

          What Tony did in taking no private action when he said he would was immoral, but no more illegal than the boy and his parents not reporting it.

          • clay

            I was trying to comment on the logic, more than the legality.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Friday

    He’s just letting *all* the Dominionist fascism hang out…. Yes, mighty Marines and Army special forces with ‘swords,’ fear the ‘sexual anarchy’ of not being taught to hate and fear your trans staff officers and comrades as yet another reason Tony Perkins’ God will SNAFU your execution of a real estate con man’s military operations.

  • RobynWatts

    So, Tony the Phony Christian Baloney, how much money did it cost you to pay off the Duggers to get them off the board of Focus Of The Family?

    And the family of that girl, who was a victim of Republican Pedophile Wesley Goodman sexual advances? (Goodman was part of the conservative group in Ohio called Conservative Action Project that Perkins was part of.)

    In other words, Tony Perkins, you can STFU!!!

  • dcurlee

    Why is he bent out of shape over people willing to put their lives on the line so he can speak his bigotry and hate

    • Sporkfighter

      With Tony, spreading hate is just an easy grift.

  • Ann Kah

    Go ahead, pray all you want, as long as that’s all you do. After all, if you believe prayer works, here is a test case.

  • BobSF_94117

    and decreed that sexual anarchy is a serious sin with profound consequences to individuals and society

    Where does the Bible address “sexual anarchy”, whatever that is?

    • Gianni

      I don’t understand that term, either. I figured it has the word “sexual” in it so it’ll grab the congregation’s attention and it automatically sounds perverted enough to make their ears perk up. More money in Tony’s wallet.

    • Rob NYNY

      I think only approvingly, with King Solomon and his hundreds of wives and sex slaves.

  • Kevin Andrews

    This Christ-O-Fascist Missionary of Hate is howling his latent homosexuality again. The designated Hate-Groups he spews for are all Evangelical Pedophile supporting Missionary of Hate.
    Tony is still mad that this Mentor George Alan Rekers (of and the rent boy fame) was unfaithful on his last cruise…
    The sickness runs deep in this one. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7fddbc7dc8e5434217a023186cf0fc964d954dcd6744b0e92b081b7824b7c77e.png

  • margaretpoa

    You would think that this idiot would know the difference between the old and new testaments but here he is, beseeching a dead guy to intervene and defend scriptures he specifically repudiated when (if) he was alive. Also, though I am atheist, I’m very sure that there is nothing in the Bible that so much as alludes to “sexual anarchy”.

    What gets me is how many people there are that are stupid enough to keep supporting your ridiculous ass.

  • Nic Peterson

    I wonder if there are any ties between Toni, FRC and this guy: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2017/12/14/another-roy-moore-christian-right-judge-accused-of-raping-bible-study-student/

    More things to cover up, I bet. Fundy types do the grift together.

  • Rocco

    I pray that Tonette gets a better wiglet…

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    It seems these people “pray” by giving orders to their god.
    Yeah, pray to Jesus, but ask yourselves, “Is this the same Jesus who shot down Roy Moore?”

    Get a clue. God hates people like you, Perkins.

  • Sporkfighter

    “. . . and our society from further sexual anarchy . . .”

    Is it just me, or are Trump and Moore among the best examples of sexual anarchy we’ve seen in many years? In my book, it isn’t the consenting adults being anarchic.

  • Richard B

    If looney Tony Perkin’s invisible all powerful god, the god who created the heavens and the expansive universe favored Tony and his hate group, them why did he guide the United States Supreme Court to make marriage equality the law of the land? Why did his god allow the courts to halt Trump’s executive order to ban the transgendered from our military? Why has god seen fit to allow members of Tony’s staff to wallow in sexual sin?
    I think Tony’s god doesn’t respect nor like Tony very much…
    What do you think?

  • 2patricius2

    Yes, by all means Tony, pray. And while you’re at it – fast on water alone for forty days. If your god loves you, he will spare you. On the other hand, you had probably hedge your bets and just pray. Cause your god doesn’t seem to have the same priorities as you.

  • -M-

    Trans people have the same right to witness as anyone else does, PerKKKy. The law is kinda all or nothing like that.

  • Benji

    Tony Perkins has made a career dishing out hate, and getting paid for it. He is a little better then Moore, only because his closet hasn’t been exposed to find molestation charges.

  • J Ascher

    Tony, may I call you Tony? Your Jesus is something like 0-for-trillions in saving anyone from anything!

  • Tom Mears

    Yes, because all those new transmen in the armed forces are going to turn the “real” men gay or something 😉

  • Paula Key

    They always forget these words of Jesus, “Do not judge,’ and “Love one another.’

  • Stephen Howe

    He seems to spend a lot of time telling God what He’s done and what He approves of, and then tries to persuade Him to do something. I presume He already knows what He’s going to do though.
    Isn’t treating Him as if He were suffering from dementia and easily led some sort of sin?

  • Tammy Rainey

    its always hilarious to watch these folks (“our god is a mighty god!!”) who are all about the “greatest nation on earth” urn around and tremble in fear at what 1% of the population is going to do to them.

    And to have all this hectoring disguised as a “prayer.”
    What a pompous ass!

  • cleos_mom

    I wonder how much of our military budget goes to buying and maintaining swords and chariots? The biblical god seems to be a bit behind the times.

  • Regan DuCasse

    Then Perkins and every last a-hole who has had a problem with gay and trans people serving in the military, can damn well strap up then.
    I’m sick of people like Perkins bitching about others doing what HIS candy ass won’t do!
    It’s an all volunteer military now. Those that never wanted to serve with women, people of color, those who are gay or trans, or of another religion or nationality, don’t have to sign up!
    Strap up, or shut up Perkins!
    None of these courageous gay and trans service members bitched about you being worthy of their risk and sacrifice.
    Have the damn grace to thank them for doing so.

  • Tony Perkins once again proves himself to be a complete and utter idjit.

    It is Tony who incorrectly claims the Bible states that God created two biological sexes, when Gen 1:27 states that humans are created in God’s image and likeness – “male and female” – in EACH person, Just as God is HE/SHE. It was only in the second creation story that the original “MALE AND FEMALE” Adam was divided in two

    It is Tony who cites to Deuteronomy 22:5 – failing to understand that trans men are men, not women, and that trans women are women, not men – and this provision doesn’t forbid trans people from wearing the appropriate clothing.
    I don;t se Tony citing Isaiah 56:3-7, Mt. 19:12 or Acts 8

    The only Godlessness is in Tony’s beliefs which are the works of Satan his lord and master.
