FRC’s Star-Spangled Sunday

Yesterday the Family Research Council and a cavalcade of anti-gay crackpots held an event that was pitched as a marking of the 200th anniversary of the national anthem. But, of course, the event was really more of a Christian get-out-the-vote rally laden with ominous claims about the end of religious liberty and the “movement to expel God from the public …

Tony Perkins Vs Penn State

Responding to complaints from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Penn State has reportedly removed Gideon bibles from its campus lodging. Tony Perkins is ever so pissed. Via press release: In a wild misrepresentation of the Old Testament, FFRF claims the Bible calls for “killing nonbelievers, apostates, gays, ‘stubborn sons,’ and women who are not virgins on their wedding nights.” According …

Tony Perkins Has The Smithsonian Sadz

Now that the Smithsonian has launched an LGBT history collection, Perkins says they should be known as an “unnatural history” museum.

Tony Perkins: Send Me Money Because Embassies Are Flying The Rainbow Flag

“Dear Joe, I saw something recently that was utterly shocking. Shocking because it unfortunately speaks volumes about the Obama administration’s misplaced priorities. A rainbow flag – the banner of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender movement – has been hoisted by the United States government over our embassy in Israel. In fact, the Obama administration is now promoting homosexuality through our …

SPLC: Fewer Policitians Will Attend This Year’s FRC Values Voter Summit

From the Southern Poverty Law Center: Where have all the elected officials gone? The Family Research Council’s (FRC) annual Values Voter Summit (VVS), set for the end of September, is fast approaching. But unlike prior years, very few high profile politicians have confirmed their participation. And the current line up seems more extreme than ever. Could this annual rite of …

Tony Perkins Has The Seventh Circuit Sadz

“I am very troubled that this court failed to recognize the self-evident truth that children need and deserve a mom and dad. The ruling doesn’t appear to allow society to choose to maintain a coherent definition of marriage. The courts have no true constitutional authority to unilaterally change the definition of our most fundamental social institution. Yet this court is …

Tony Perkins Cheers Louisiana Ruling

“This ruling is a victory for children, each of whom need and desire a mom and dad, something our public policy should encourage. This decision is a victory for the rule law, and for religious liberty and free speech which are undermined anywhere marriage is redefined. We commend Judge Feldman for refraining from judicial activism and recognizing that Louisiana voters …

Tony Perkins Mocks Abercrombie Loss

“Back in November of 2013, Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie called a special session to legalize same-sex ‘marriage, instead of giving voters a voice. Rather than put the issue on the ballot, as thousands of people asked for, he fast-tracked the bill through the legislature. Unfortunately for Abercrombie, he may have stopped Hawaiians from voting on marriage, but he couldn’t stop …

Tony Perkins Ice Bucket’s For “Ethical” Research, Nominates Todd Starnes

KKK-affiliated hate group leader Tony Perkins posted his ice bucket clip today, but noted that his money will only go to research that doesn’t use Jesus-hating embryonic stem cells. He then challenged fellow hate group leader Tim Wildmon and Fox News liar Todd Starnes, whom we’d actually really like to see with a wet comb-over.

Star Spangled Sunday

Aided by Sen. Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and the Benham brothers, the Family Research Council is glomming onto the bicentennial of the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner as one of those times that Jesus saved America. Did you know that America has seen darker days in the past than those we are facing right now? 200 years ago we were …

Perkins Praises Pennsylvania Bakery

“At Pennsylvania’s Cake Pros shop, they’re pros at more than baking. Lorraine Fleming knew the day might come when she’d have to stand up for her beliefs on marriage. And this month, it did. Like the bridal shop just a few hours down the road, Cake Pros was the target of an underground movement to expose and torment businesses with …

Perkins Cheers Defeat Of Billings Bill

“It was well after 3:00 a.m., but to people in Billings, Montana, it was never too late to stand up to the forces of political correctness. Thanks to Mayor Tom Hanel, that’s exactly what the largest city in the state did — beating back a dangerous bathroom bill that would have literally opened the doors of Billings’s public showers, locker …

Tony Perkins: Christians Should Tell Gay Customers That Their Money Is Going to “Ex-Gay” Torture Clinics

Ian Silverstone writes at Right Wing Watch: For conservatives, non-discrimination laws are another nail in the coffin of religious freedom. On Monday’s “Washington Watch,” host Tony Perkins lamented how increasingly difficult it is for Christian business owners to actively discriminate against and refuse service to LGBT people or same-sex couples based on their “religious views on sexuality.” Perkins said that …

Tony Perkins On The PA Bridal Shop

“Obviously, W.W. Bridal Boutique isn’t the only wedding dress shop in town. These women could have easily taken their business elsewhere — but chose to retaliate instead. That’s because, at its core, this isn’t about accommodation. It’s about forced acceptance. When religious liberty clashes with homosexuality — as it has from bakeries to flower shops — the storylines are all …

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 …

Tony Perkins Has The Virginia Sadz

“The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit yesterday became the second federal appeals court to declare that a state (in this case, Virginia) defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman violates the U.S. Constitution. The three-judge panel divided 2-1, with the majority declaring that ‘the fundamental right to marry encompasses the right to same-sex …

Perkins: Ask Jesus To Stop Those Gays

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 …
