The Family Research Council’s crusade against Trump nominee Rex Tillerson is getting wide play across right wing sites. From this afternoon’s story in World Net Daily:
As the names popped up on President-elect Donald Trump’s list of Cabinet nominees, conservatives and Christians mostly have been pleased. After all, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry once said he wanted to shut down the agency he’s now supposed to run, the Energy Department, and Betsy DeVos, nominated to run the Department of Education, has expressed strong support for school choice and school vouchers.
But there’s been a slipup by the Trump transition team at the position for secretary of state, they say. Nominee Rex Tillerson, CEO of ExxonMobil, not only has been supportive of the abortion industry, through his company’s donations to abortionists, but also played a key role in opening the Boy Scouts to homosexuality.
Those accomplishments have left Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council appalled at the idea of Tillerson continuing the pro-abortion, pro-homosexual agenda outlined by Hillary Clinton and followed by John Kerry at the State Department.
“FRC knows Tillerson all too well, having worked for years to put the brakes on his reckless agenda for a scouting organization that was already dealing with staggering numbers of sexual abuse cases,” he wrote in a recent commentary online.
Perkins said: “Now, after two terms of exporting radical social policy, Americans could finally see the light at the end of the Obama administration tunnel. To hear that Donald Trump may be appointing a man who not only led the charge to open the Boy Scouts to gay troop leaders but whose company directly gives to Planned Parenthood is upsetting at best.”
