Tony Perkins: If the Supreme Court Approves 'Unnatural' Gay Marriage Then 'Revolution' Will Take Place - VIDEO


Hate group leader Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council colleague Peter Sprigg are alarmed about the marriage equality wins in the last election, saying that if it leads to the Supreme Court approving of "unnatural" gay marriage, then a "revolution" could "explode" and "break this nation apart", Right Wing Watch reports.

  1. Sounds to me like he's expecting the Supreme to strike down DOMA and Prop 8. And he's right, Roberts & Kennedy can see the writing on the wall and must realize ruling against marriage equality can only further portray the Republican party as the out of touch and hateful party. Better for them to vote with Sotomayor, Ginsburg, Breyer and Kagan to help the republicans appeal to the independent, moderate voters that abandoned Romney in droves.

  2. Will FOX NEWS, FRC, etc., all be held responsible for consistently fanning the flames if/when violence increases due to marriage equality?

  4. They also said the sky would fall if same sex marriage were to pass. These people are jokes. Keep your skewed version of religion out of my life. You had better find another minority to pick on, because we are overtaking your hatred by leaps and bounds.

  5. It's unlikely that the supreme court will knock down all the state laws banning gay marriage even if they kill Prop 8 and DOMA. So, his scenario is unlikely to come to pass, luckily for him.

  7. These poor minded individuals keep redefining what natural is. A born gay man is as natural as the sun and the stars. These people are going against God's creation and they will be held accountable for all the damage the have done and continue to do.

  8. Gay marriage will not be what breaks up the country, but immigration will be.

    White liberals in the Northeast and West Coast seem absolutely intent on turning America into an overwhelmingly non-white, non-Western society and the rest of America wants no part of that and will ultimately not stand for it. It is why the white middle class has deserted California in droves, leaving it to crumble under the weight of a Third World population base.

    The only solution to that will be to split the country up.

  9. Yes, because Canada, Spain, South Africa, Belgium, The Netherlands, Norway, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, Portugal and Sweden have all descended into chaos. Oh wait.

  10. They are just scared that the government is going to treat them how it has been treating us for the past million years. Be afraid, bigots. Be VERY afraid.

    As for me, I am through with worrying about what these tools say. Election Day was practically like Gay Christmas in this country. And here in MN. I plan to sit back and bask in it after one of the most brutal election seasons I have ever endured. All I can say is something I posted on my FB: "Got 99 problems but a b1tch-ass amendment ain't one!!"

  11. I'm struck by how out to lunch these groups are..?!
    How do they function in the real world.?
    If the concern is of marriage and maintaining "families" , can we first discuss all the marriages that currently end in divorce. Lets discuss and make it impossible for anyone to divorce and remarry.(im sure they already know how far they'd get)
    Let's first work on the marriages that are currently in place and force all those individuals to fight for their rights.

  13. I'm positive he just made himself a threat to national security. Hopefully the FBI is watching him.

  14. Personally I think EVERYONE is too emotional these days regarding the outcome of the election. Obama is a good man, but his supporters should realize he's not the Messiah. This election was a boost for the cultural Left but they need to guard against the overconfidence that did them in during the 1960's and 70's. Evangelical Christians (and I'm one of them) should realize that it was only a presidential election, not Armaggedon. The sun will shine again, Tony. In the meantime please stop embarassing yourself by predicting revolution. And readers of Towleroad, if you want to really get Mr. Perkins, overlook his threats and sing "You say you want a revolushuuhun, weh- hell ya kno uh o....."

    The whole country needs a chill pill right now.

  15. I want to point out there is nothing natural about marriage: gay, straight, or otherwise. That's why this fight is only about the legal definition. Outside the law, marriage doesn't exist!

  16. @Bearish: you forgot the part about sex is only in missionary position with the man on top under the covers with lights out.

    @Dan: "unchurched" has been around for quite some time. It was used by Christians who went to church to refer to other people, presumed to be Christian, who didn't go to church.

    @Lee: you're forgetting the problem of sex education in the schools. Since it started however many decades ago, there has always been controversy about how much to teach - even when it was just straight sex for all the presumably straight students. I'm sure there are people today who still want only purely proceative sex taught (in particular, no foreplay).


    In general, many LGBT-phobes sound so much like the racists I've read about. The racists were up in arms over Brown and threatened secession. The racists didn't want schools to teach that blacks were as good as white. The racists...

  17. Oops! I meant to continue...

    @Lee: It's a pity that the Religious Right confuse a justifiably local discussion of sex education curriculum with the state and federal civil rights of marriage. But that's one of the issues:(

  18. What an idiot. Why does anyone listen to him?

  19. Yeah...just like the revolution Trump and his fellow douchebags were calling for if Obama won. Not gonna happen. Tony Perkins is a big ole closet drama queen.

  20. Tony; It was the law of several states that a White person could not marry a Black person. Apparently a majority of the American electorate have twice shown that that was not really a good idea. Now, several states have already shown that Gay people are good enough to be elected to the Congress, and Senate as well as to other state offices. It looks like you are a sad, sick minority.

  21. I hope at least that the supporters of this are jailed after some crackpot does something unspeakably horrific because of it.
