Todd Starnes Throws a Tantrum Over CBS Labeling Tony Perkins an Anti-gay Hater: VIDEO


Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes wasn't at all pleased with Face the Nation's Bob Schieffer after the CBS moderator, while introducing FRC president Tony Perkins onto the show last Sunday, noted:

Perkins"Mr. Perkins, I'm going to say this to you up front. You and your group have been so strong in coming out against gay marriage that the Southern Poverty Law Center has branded the Family Research Council an anit-gay hate group. We have been inundated by people who say we should not even let you appear because in their view you quote "don't speak for Christians.'"

In his daily "American Dispatch" segment a few days ago, Starnes fired back saying:

Now it would be easy to dismiss Mr. Schieffer's ignorance as nothing more than sloppy journalism. But we're not talking about a local cable access show. We're talking about Face the Nation. Tony Perkins is my friend. He is a good and decent and honorable man and he deserves better. 

By notifying viewers of Perkins and the FRC's hate group status, Schieffer was just doing his job and pointing out a simple truth. And we all know that type of journalistic credibility isn't tolerated over at Fox News.

Texas GOP Congressman Ties Baltimore Riots to Gay Marriage: LISTEN


Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) appeared on hate group leader Tony Perkins' Washington Watch radio show yesterday and linked the Baltimore riots to gay marriage, Right Wing Watch reports:

Let’s talk about poverty, for instance. The single best indicator of whether or not a child is going to be in poverty or not is whether or not they were raised by a two-parent household or a single parent household, so the breakdown of the family has contributed to poverty. Look at what is going on in Baltimore today, you see the issues that are raised there. Healthy marriages are the ones between a man and a woman because they can have a healthy family and they can raise children in a way that’s best for their future, not only socially but psychologically, economically, from a health perspective. There is nothing like traditional marriage that does that for a child. Each of us have a mother and a father and there is no way to get around that.

Bob Schieffer Stuns FRC's Tony Perkins, Asks How it Feels to be an 'Anti-Gay Hate Group' Leader: VIDEO

Tony Perkins

Out of his highly profitable comfort zone last Sunday, Tony Perkins was taken off guard when Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer labeled Family Research Council (FRC) an “anti-gay hate group.”

Schieffer added that he had come under pressure to not invite the FRC head honcho onto the show because he does not speak for Christians.

When the host inquired whether Perkins and co. have taken their homophobia too far, Perkins - for a brief moment - looked uncomfortable before recovering and hitting the hate out of the ballpark.

With Schieffer incredulous at the idea that same-sex marriage would lead to “open season on people of faith," Perkins defended his position by arguing that Oregon bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein have been fined $135,000 for “saying we cannot participate in a same-sex wedding because it violates our Christian faith.”

He also pointed out that the persecuted Kleins have received donations of $100,000 on a - since shut down - GoFundIt campaign.

Mike Huckabee and Tony Perkins Worried Gay Marriage Will Rain Down ISIS Violence On Christians: LISTEN

Mick Huckabee

Mike Huckabee (above) has claimed that the supposed threat same-sex marriage will create for religious freedom is part of a broader attack that will include violence against Christians, reports Right Wing Watch.

Speaking during a conference call organized by hate group the Family Research Council (FRC), Huckabee agreed with a pastor who suggested that the U.S. is facing the threat of ISIS terrorist attacks and the “equally intense assault on marriage as defined by God.”

Huckabee replied to the panic-stricken pastor:

“We’re seeing, certainly at the national level, internally this battle on marriage, but globally what we’re seeing is that there is an assault on the Christian faith in general.”

Tony PerkinsHe continued that ISIS will soon “physically assault” American Christians.

Not to be outdone in the Game of Hate - I’m convinced it is in fact a game and Matt Baume’s recent exposé of FRC suggests the same - our old friend Tony Perkins (right) said that the fight for LGBT rights in the U.S. is linked to the murder of Christians by ISIS members in the Middle East.

“If we go silent on religious freedom here at home, I think that sends a message to the terrorists and the tyrants abroad that they are free to persecute our brothers and sisters in Christ. The other side is vocal and they sound like they are a lot more than they are but as a result they are winning battles that we should be winning.”

Tony Perkins Thinks Bryan Fischer Could Make a Better Effort At Hating Gays: LISTEN

Bryan Fischer

A follower of hate group mouthpiece Bryan Fischer (above) has serious concerns that his wingnut leader is just not quite homophobic enough.

Satan-obsessed Fischer, of anti-gay activist group the American Family Association, had advised that if his fellow homophobes must attend a same-sex wedding they should make the lucky couple aware that they do not approve beforehand.

However, one listener was so incensed with Fischer’s clearly moderate opinion that he telephoned yet another wingnut - Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins - to complain, reports Right Wing Watch.

The caller told Perkins that he was in shock because a true Christian would only attend a same-sex wedding in order to tell the participants that they are going to hell.

“The only reason that any Christian would ever attend a homosexual wedding is when the preacher says, ‘Is there any objection to the wedding,’ you stand up and say, ‘Yes, according to the Bible, sodomy, you will burn in hell for this.’ That is the only reason why any Christian would ever attend a sodomite wedding.”

Although doubtful that a gay couple would “invite people to raise any objections,: Perkins was impressed with the caller’s insightful comments, adding that silence in the church about divorce has led “to this wholesale redefinition of marriage as a result.”

Tony Perkins Compares Dealing With Gays To Negotiating With Satan And Iran: AUDIO

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 4.07.10 PM

The ever elegant president of the Family Research Council, Tony Perkins, compared dealing with gays to negotiating with Iran and Satan reports Right Wing Watch. Perkins issued his lofty statements on his radio program Washington Watch, proclaiming his agreement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. shouldn’t negotiate with Iran (Netanyahu actually expressed he supports diplomatic talks in principle) quoting Ronald Reagan’s "We don’t negotiate with terrorists." Perkins went on to say Jesus didn’t negotiate with the Devil, and that negotiating with 'cultural totalitarians' should be dealt with in the same way.

Said Perkins:

"Did Jesus negotiate with the Devil? No, he said, 'Away with you Satan.' He goes on later in the scripture to talk about 'What fellowship has light with darkness.' The same can be said of the cultural totalitarians who want to force everyone to embrace and even celebrate their view of morality. You cannot compromise, you cannot appease. Just ask Gov. (Mike) Pence and others who have compromised their values in an effort to appease these folks. It only increases their aggressiveness and their demands."
