Tony Perkins On The Sixth Circuit Court

“Unfortunately, conservatives aren’t just fighting the courts for their right to decide the issue — they’re also fighting a massive PR push from deep-pocketed activists who are desperate to normalize same-sex ‘marriage.’ Their campaign is hitting a fever pitch in places like Missouri, where groups like Show Me Marriage are doing their best to bring voters’ beliefs in line with …

Former “Ex-Gay” Activist: I Wouldn’t Date An “Ex-Gay” Myself, They Can’t Be Trusted

“Many people I knew suspected all along that change—true change where all same-sex attractions disappear or become rare and incidental, and heterosexual attractions take their place—never happened. I can say I’ve never met an ‘ex-gay’ man I thought was not still attracted to men and would not go back to gay relationships under the right circumstances. One of my colleagues …

Tony Perkins: Christians Aren’t Welcome In My Hometown Of Baton Rouge

“The degrading comments of a city councilman aligned with the Baton Rouge Area Chamber and other prominent businesses in my hometown are sending a message to Christians and conservative businesses that they are not welcomed in Louisiana’s Capital City. In attempting to pass a special rights measure based upon sexual behavior last Wednesday, Councilman John Delgado ironically lashed out at …

From today’s Family Research Council “Prayer Target”: Beginning of the ENDA – President Obama signed an executive order Monday to protect “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees from discrimination by companies that do federal government work.” Tony Perkins commented, “mandating that all federal contractors and subcontractors — regardless of their religious and moral convictions — give special treatment to homosexuals, …

FRC Announces 2014 Values Voters Summit Lineup: A Cavalcade Of Crackpots

Tony Perkins fancies himself to be a GOP presidential candidate kingmaker, so it will be interesting to see if any not entirely crazy Republicans will join the above careening clown car crowded with the cavalcade of crackpots who failed in 2012, some of whom (Paul, Perry, Santorum) are expected to make a 2016 run. Ted Cruz won last year’s Values …

Tony Perkins Has Executive Order Sadz

“This action is wrong on the merits, because it accepts the premise that distinctions based on actual conduct — such as homosexual behavior and cross-dressing — should be treated the same way as distinctions based on immutable and innocuous characteristics like race. This order gives activists a license to challenge their employers and, expose those contracted employers to threats of …

FRC Has The Executive Order Sadz

“President Obama has ordered employers to put aside their principles, and practices in the name of political correctness. This level of coercion is nothing less than viewpoint blackmail that bullies into silence every contractor and subcontractor who has moral objections to homosexual behavior. This order gives activists a license to challenge their employers and, expose those employers to threats of …

Tony Perkins: Colorado’s Baker Refuses To Back Down To Homosexual Bullies

“If you think Colorado’s Masterpiece Cakes will give in to homosexual bullies, then you don’t know Jack. Jack Phillips, the owner of another Christian bakery under attack, is refusing to cave to the state’s ridiculous demands after he turned down an order for a same-sex ‘wedding’ cake. With help from our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom, the baker and his …

Tony Perkins On ENDA

“As even the Left turns its back on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to give homosexuals and transgenders special rights in the workplace, the White House stubbornly plows ahead, insisting that it will defy Congress and enact a smaller version of the law by executive order. Angry the policy wouldn’t go far enough in handcuffing employers with religious beliefs, most homosexual …

Tony Perkins Has The Burger King Sadz

“When Burger King says ‘have it your way,’ they aren’t just talking about food. Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. Is it Burger King or Burger Queen? Customers in San Francisco aren’t so sure after the chain’s new Proud Whopper. Local stores unveiled the rainbow menu to coincide with LGBT week. Although nothing’s different about …

Tony Perkins Has The Colorado Sadz

“Most people have seen the movie Groundhog Day — and now, thanks to the courts, they’re living it. Every morning, Americans seem to be waking up to the same headlines on marriage: judge strikes down marriage amendment in [fill in the state]. Wednesday, reporters on the marriage beat had another easy day cutting and pasting the same constitutionally flawed reasoning …

Tony Perkins On ENDA

“Speaking of ideological oppression, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is full of it. But apparently, not full enough to suit the radical Left. After months of demanding action, liberals are abruptly bailing on the legislation, which many of them called their top legislative priority. The about-face comes just days after the Supreme Court upheld the religious rights of businesses like …

Tony Perkins: President Obama Is Going To Start Throwing Christians In Jail

Brian Tashman writes at Right Wing Watch: Tony Perkins invited Fox News’ go-to-Christian-persecution-commentator Todd Starnes to join him on the weekend edition of “Washington Watch,” where Starnes pointed to recent remarks by Rick Warren and Russell Moore warning of the imminent imprisonment of Christians in America as proof that Christians will indeed soon face jail sentences. Perkins, who recently warned …

Peter Sprigg Has The Kentucky Sadz

“Judge Heyburn’s contention that ‘serious people’ don’t support the definition of marriage that has existed for millenia, demonstrates a measure of contempt – for tens of millions of citizens – wholly unacceptable from someone on the bench. On the contrary, it is those like Judge Heyburn, who can conceive of no ‘rational basis’ for distinguishing the type of relationship which …

Perkins Cheers Hobby Lobby Ruling

“The Supreme Court has delivered one of the most significant victories for religious freedom in our generation. We are thankful the Supreme Court agreed that the government went too far by mandating that family businesses owners must violate their consciences under threat of crippling fines.  All Americans can be thankful that the Court reaffirmed that freedom of conscience is a …

WASHINGTON: Peter Sprigg Testifies Against Proposed “Ex-Gay” Torture Ban

“At the heart of the attacks on sexual reorientation therapy are two claims– that such therapies are ineffective, and that they are harmful. However, there is abundant anecdotal evidence that such therapies work — that is, people who say that they were helped by such therapies to change from predominantly homosexual to predominantly heterosexual. There is also scientific evidence. The …

Perkins Denounces Presbysterian Church

“If the church can’t find its moral compass, how on earth do we expect the culture to? That was the question on most people’s minds after the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted Thursday to walk away from the Bible’s authority on marriage. By a lopsided 71-29%, the liberal denomination threw its support behind the redefinition of marriage, giving its shrinking congregations …

Perkins Attacks Kerry On LGBT Rights

“During last week’s LGBT pep rally at the State Department, Kerry’s rah-rah moment was saying that if confirmed, Ted Osius would be the sixth openly homosexual ambassador. ‘We now have hundreds of LGBT individuals in our bureaus at State, USAID, and at posts all around the world.’ Of course, what Kerry neglected to mention is that many of those posts …
