What Tony Perkins Actually Thinks

Tony Perkins of Family Research Council puts just about everything in quotes: "protect" homosexuals, "decriminalization," "principal of non-discrimination," "sexual orientation," "gender identity," "stigmatization and prejudice," "The Agenda," "Fairness Doctrine," "Hate Crimes," and, of course, "diversity." By putting them in quotes, Perkins stresses that these things either don't really exist or that they're other than how he (the "normal" person) would define them.

All of the above words and phrases came from two missives today: Perkins' daily screed, today's titled "Queer Eye For The State Guy." (For terrible pun-like, nonsensical titles, absolutely nobody beats Tony Perkins) and a donation plea entitled Stand Up To "The Agenda" Now! Both emails are basically conspiracy-theorizing, fear-mongering letters.

The first email points to the U.N. declaration (non-binding) concerning decriminalizing homosexuality. Bush refused to sign it as did African and Arab nations that still have homosexuality on the books as a capital offense. The Obama administration just signed it. Perkins is frightened out of his wits that signing such a declaration legitimizes homosexuality, a "policy already forced on the U.S. by a 2003 Supreme Court decision." (emphasis my own).

The second email possits something Perkins swears is true: "The Agenda." This is a mysterious, secret cabal intent on destroying his America.

As you probably know by now, the Obama-Pelosi-Reid government is moving swiftly to silence you and everyone else who disagrees with "The Agenda" . . . a blueprint of their dangerous vision of an anti-faith, anti-family vision for America. The so-called "Fairness Doctrine" is just the tip of the spear. They'll stop at nothing to strip Christian and conservative Americans of their voices.

And later:



Silencing the moral voices of America is critical for the Left to place America under government control, except when it comes to moral or sexual restraint.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch called Reality:

(From the San Jose Mercury News)

Hate crime cases involving anti-gay sentiment shot up in Santa Clara County last year, a striking increase that a leading prosecutor attributes to controversy over Proposition 8, the voter-approved ban on gay marriage.


Conspiracy theorists like Perkins don't seem quite as formidable as an effort like Prop 8. After all, $40 million is a lot to spend for discrimination. But don't discount him either. The people who shelled out those millions listened to "somebody."

Just a thought.
