Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council (FRC), spent quite a bit of time comparing LGBT activists to terrorists during the April 29 edition of FRCís Washington:


PERKINS: This has moved from cultural terrorism to corporate terrorism. That's what this is. Now, back in the 's and early 90's I worked with the state department in anti-terrorism and we trained about fifty different countries in defending against terrorism, and it's, at its base, what terrorism is, it's a strike against the general populace simply to spread fear and intimidation so that they can disrupt and destabilize the system of government. That's what the homosexuals are doing here to the legal system.



The tirade came in response to King & Spalding's recent decision to drop its defense of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal court after coming under pressure from gay rights groups like the Human Rights Campaign.



As ridiculous as Perkinís statements are, theyíre not terribly surprising considering the source. Perkins and FRC have been peddling lies about gays and lesbians for years, including the myth that gay men are more likely to be pedophiles than straight men.



What is surprising, however, is the extent to which such a clearly homophobic and bigoted fear monger is treated as a credible source of information by mainstream media outlets. Perkins was invited onto Fox earlier this week to rail against same-sex adoptions. Last week, he wrote an article for FoxNews.com warning that the repeal of Donít Ask Donít Tell would weaken the military.



An incredibly depressing side note: Perkins isnít the first right-winger to link gay people to terrorists. Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, who was also a Fox guest this week, has previously called gay sex ďa form of domestic terrorism

So, what did Perkins do at the state department to defend against gays and lesbians? Consult with the CIA and the FBI on weeding out those kinds of terrorists? Would J. Edgar Hoover have kept a file on every gay and lesbian (terrorist) on file? Same with the CIA director?

The FRC and Tony Perkins should be completely ignored by the media.

Actually Perkins makes a good point but you are too narrow minded and intolerant to think about it

Yes, and don't forget that the hateful dumdum from Britain should be ignored by the media, too.



For a minute there, I thought that was the same Tony (Anthony) Perkins who was also a psycho in the movie.

Actually, Highway, that Tony Perkins (from the Psycho movies) is dead; he died of AIDS, I believe.

I don't really care if they're ignored. They should simply ALWAYS be given media coverage when there is an honest and truthful person to refute their lies and deceptions and distortions.



Actually, I don't see them being afforded the same respect they used to be given by the general public. Most people have wised up and can tell when they're listening to hate-mongering and deceit. The only people who give them any credence are those who find their own opinions validated by the rantings of anti-gay right wing fringe lunatics.

Yeah, I know. I was sort of pulling punches, I guess. And that Tony Perkins entered the Twilight Zone. Sad that he died of AIDS.
