Tony Perkins Says DNC With 'Small Minority' Supporting Gay Marriage: VIDEO


Conveniently ignoring national polls showing a majority of the nation supports marriage equality for same-sex couples, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins claims the Democratic Party, in contrast to the GOP, is aligning itself with a "small minority" of people who back same-sex nuptials.

"I think this is the year of contrast. This is the year of contrast when you look at the party platforms. The Republican Party has very strong language as it pertains to natural, traditional marriage," Perkins told CSN News at the Republican National Convention.

"The Democratic Party [is] going the way of a very small minority in this country and embracing same-sex marriage, which undermines the 32 states that have voted on this – the 30 states that have constitutional amendments. I think that's in your face to those states that have constitutional amendments."

  4. Enjoy your evangelical smugness while you can, Tony.

    Your defeat and take-down is looming on the horizon.

    Oh, uh, Tony? Pray to your suckable jesus that our paths never, ever cross.

  5. That's not what the data show, Tony. But don't let facts get in the way of your efforts to scare and manipulate.

  6. Anti-gay Christian Tony Perkins and his hate group called the Family Research Counsel are a bunch of Nazis pushing their lies and propaganda and if they get their way they will round up LGBT people and put them in concentration camps and murder them like that mad man Hitler and his gang of Catholic Nazis did.

  7. I've always thought it funny that he shares a name with one of Hollywood's most notorious homosexual actors.

  10. The photo says CNS News, not CSN, neither which I have heard of. Anyone can hold a microphone in someone's face and let them spout off whatever nonsense they want unchallenged. Let's hope that a real journalist will call them on this crap and not let them get away with their lies.

  11. @David, according to the website for CNS News, they have been around since 1998 and are devoted to exposing "liberal bias" in the news. Their parent organization is the right-wing Media Research Center headed by the right-wing L. Brent Bozell.

  12. If we're going to have Tony Perkins on to talk about gay marriage, we should have the Grand Wizard of the KKK on to talk about how they think it is having a black president.
    Are you people f*ckin' nuts? Why are we putting hate group leaders on T.V.???

  13. @DC2008: I am an "old white man" who voted for Obama in 2008 and will do so again in 2012.I take offense at your using race to characterize those you disagree with. I am proud that I am white, I am proud that I am gay and I am proud that I am an Obama supporter and not just because he is half white.

  14. Unlike a solar day, which uses the sun as a reference and lasts an average of 24 hours, a sidereal day uses fixed stars as a reference and is nearly four minutes shorter.
