Tony Perkins Outraged That U.S. Military Color Guard Marched at D.C. Pride: LISTEN

T_perkinsFamily Research Council president Tony Perkins has spoken out against the U.S. Military Color Guard's decision to march in the Washington, D.C., Pride Parade, Right Wing Watch reports.

On his radio bulletin today, Perkins argued that the Color Guard's decision discriminates against Christians because soldiers did not take part in the March For Life.

Perkins claimed that the march included "half-naked people and drag queens" and stated that "while the Pentagon may be willing to bend the rules for this cause, you can bet Christian soldiers wouldn't enjoy the same 'exemption' if they wore their uniforms to the March for Life."

Listen and read the full bulletin, AFTER THE JUMP...

 

The problem in D.C.'s gay pride parade wasn't that active duty troops were saluting the flag. The problem was which flag they were saluting. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. March madness isn't just for basketball! After last week's gay pride parade, it applies to the Obama administration too. For the first time ever, the President authorized an eight-member military honor guard to march alongside half-naked people and drag queens. The move, which Capital Pride Parade called "significant," caps off years of being denied by the prestigious soldiers. Making matter worse, this color guard was provided by the U.S. Military District of Washington, which is reserved for the President, Congress, and other state functions. And while the Pentagon may be willing to bend the rules for this cause, you can bet Christian soldiers wouldn't enjoy the same "exemption" if they wore their uniforms to the March for Life. Unfortunately for today's troops -- "equality" is a one-way street, and that street is full of activists.

  2. He can't get a lot of TV exposure these days. The above picture is dated. He doesn't look like that anymore. He has shrunk.

  3. I thought religion was supposed to make life better.

    This guy (and all the rest of the so-called "religious leaders" in this country) is/are always pissed off about something, always begging for money, and always getting caught in scandals that directly contradict their 'personal values' but are quickly forgotten by the sheeple...

    You couldn't PAY me to worship their god... Well unless I could get Osteen's or Robertson's or Warren's etc. megachurch gig. Then I could fake it just as well as they all do... all the way to the bank!

  5. If they had marched in a halftime show, the other perfomers would have included half-naked cheerleaders. Would he have been upset about that?

  6. What's wrong with half-naked? Jesus was half-naked when he died for the sins of Tony Perkins. Blasphemy.

  9. HALF naked? He wasn't at the same parade I attended, with my husband and one of my daughters. The crowd grows much bigger every year.

  10. As their movement dies off they get more desperate. In case Tony didn't know we have LGBT active duty service members. Tony Perkins and his group should leave the country and pull a Jim Jones. Kool-Aid Oh Yeah!

  11. Does the Family Research Council actually research anything? Do they publish their findings in scholarly journals?

    I think the answer is NO. They think they already know everything.

  12. "Outraged" from a designated hate group...it can't get better than that! Let's keep hoping he gets more and more outraged til his head explodes.

  13. He's jealous because there wasn't a Color Guard at today's March for Marriage. But that's because there wasn't anybody at the march to guard. Judging from the pictures, it's really hard to distinguish the actual attenders from bystanders just milling around.

  14. The fact that God hasn't struck Tony Perkins with a lightning bolt is proof that He doesn't exit.

  15. Tony Is such a lying prick, total scumbag.
