Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Condemns the Empire State Building's Rainbow Show of Pride

Tony Perkins, leader of the hate group Family Research Council, is not happy that the Empire State Building lit up in rainbow colors on Friday night following the marriage equality victory in NY.

Writes Perkins, in part:

Empire People at the Empire State Building said it was a coincidence. Officials explained that it takes hours to change the lights. But there was no mistaking the message Friday night when the highest point in the city lit up like a towering rainbow, its colors blazing across the New York skyline. Like a warning flare, the reds and blues and greens exploded over the city, announcing the arrival of same-sex "marriage" to the world. Overnight, New York had become a beacon in the fight for family--a symbol of people who had lost their way...

When the law goes into effect next month, New York will be the sixth and largest state to shatter the definition of marriage in America. To understand the devastation of that defeat, consider this. Within hours, the number of people living in jurisdictions with same-sex "marriage" doubled. 

...Despite all of the disappointment, God is on the move. Regardless of how things appear, never doubt that He is at work behind the scenes. Rainbow colors may cut through the New York night, but shadows are where you and I are called to shine. The world takes advantage of the darkness, but only the church can set it ablaze. "Arise... for your light has come... See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn." (Isaiah 60:1-3)

The Family Research Council has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

  3. FRC is working in the shadows... He then follows that with a quote from scripture that paints the good people, to whom nations and kings will draw from that darkness, as the ones working in the light...

    Seems we're good!

  4. Do we really regard anything any nutcase bigot or organization thereof says to be news?

    I'd rather see this space to devoted to intelligent LGBTQ commentary on Pride, last week's decision in the NY legislature, or just about anything other than this obsessive focus on hate mongering pterodactyls who're dying out faster than they can reproduce.
