Fox News Welcomes Hate Group Leader to Discuss the Veto of Arizona's Anti-Gay Bill: VIDEO

Kelly_-perkins

In a particularly offensive, though not entirely surprising segment, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly asked Family Research Council president Tony Perkins about his thoughts regarding Gov. Jan Brewer's veto of Arizona SB1062, which would have allowed business owners and other individuals to refuse service to gay and lesbian patrons based on religious beliefs. Perkins proceeded to demonize the decision, stating that "this is how fundamental freedoms are trampled."

He also denied the relevance of comparing African-American civil rights struggles of the 1950's and 60's and today's issues, saying that most places in Arizona would still allow racial discrimination. But would that happen? "No, because people aren't going to do that," according to Perkins, who in one fell swoop both confirmed and denied the existence of race-based discrimination while continuing to reinforce his own homophobic view, that gay and lesbian people do deserve to have "that," discrimination, directed towards them. 

Media Matters reports:

[Megyn] Kelly's decision to host Perkins to discuss the veto without questioning his rhetoric or providing another guest to counter his views marks an unfortunate reversal from her comments the day before, wherein she acknowledged that Arizona's anti-gay bill was "potentially dangerous." Unfortunately, Perkins' regular status as a Fox guest is in keeping with the network's ongoing attempt to suppress gay rights by suggesting thatthe religious views of business owners should allow them to discriminate against gay customers.

GLAAD's Jeremy Hooper and FRC's Tony Perkins Discuss 'Duck Dynasty' with Megyn Kelly: VIDEO

GLAAD's Jeremy Hooper and Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins joined Megyn Kelly last night for a discussion of Phil Robertson and the Duck Dynasty firestorm. Unfortunately, Hooper and Perkins did not get to share the screen.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Media Matters notes:

Hooper challenged Kelly to hold Perkins accountable for his anti-gay record and vile rhetoric, to which Kelly promised, "What specifically? Because I'll ask him."

But Kelly never asked Perkins to explain his extreme stances against the gay community, nor did she acknowledge that the FRC is a designated hate group. Instead she merely identified FRC as "a group whose mission is to advance faith, family, and freedom in public policy and culture from a Christian world view"--a description that continues Fox's trend of referring to anti-gay extremism as Christianity. Perkins went on to defend Robertson as upholding "biblical morality" and attack homosexuality as "sexual immorality."

Perkins blasted Robertson's suspension earlier on Thursday:

"A&E's suspension of Phil Robertson shows Hollywood wants to avoid reality. The reality is that the Robertson family are Bible-believing Christians who don't cherry pick what the Bible teaches.

"Phil Robertson has been targeted simply because he expressed his religious beliefs but there is a clear double standard that is being applied. Nothing was done when homosexual activist Dan Savage screamed profanities at Christian high school students and called them 'pansy-(expletive deleted).' However, when Christians simply say homosexuality is wrong and they don't agree with it, there are demands that they be fired and silenced.  

"We have also seen wedding florists, bakers, and photographers hauled into court, fined and even ordered to violate their religious beliefs by participating in same-sex weddings. It is time for all Americans to take a stand against the cultural elites who want to destroy the livelihood of people and remove God and His truth from every aspect of public life.

"The increasing awareness of this collateral cultural and religious carnage that accompanies the redefinition of natural marriage will continue to cause the debate over same-sex marriage to intensify, not abate, despite the media's relative silence and homosexual activists increasing campaign of intimidation," concluded Perkins.

Bill O'Reilly has Megyn Kelly's back on Santa, and also wants a piece of this year's biggest 'War on Christmas' headline. Although it doesn't matter that Santa was a white person, O'Reilly insists, "she's right, Santa was a white person."

And it's a big deal, according to O'Reilly because it's just the latest attempt by liberals to kill the all-powerful Faux News.

FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly's assertion yesterday that Santa and Jesus are white were like a sack of toys coming down the chimney for Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, who noted that Kelly's statement about Santa is the official slogan of oppression:

"Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable, doesn't mean it has to change."
