Learn What Would Jesus Buy With Conservative Shopper App

2nd Vote App
The ever-helpful Tony Perkins reminded his followers that the Family Research Council has an app called 2nd Vote that rates companies from 1-5 based on their adherence to traditional conservative values. Companies lose points for supporting gay rights, any liberal policies, and donations to Planned Parenthood, naturally.

Confusingly, companies also lose points for having environmental protection policies in place (Psalm 24:1 - The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof the world and those who dwell therein; Revelations 11:18 - The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time [...] for destroying the destroyers of the earth.) and for banning guns in their establishments (Psalm 11:5 - The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence; Exodus 20:13 - Thou shalt not kill.), so perhaps 2nd Vote's conservative policies aren't just a thin veneer applied over oppressive religous dogma.

The app is presently enjoying stellar ratings on Apple's App Store with enthusiastic reviews from satisfied customers:

"Thank you for helping me to identify which business are willing to stand up against bigotry, misogyny, discrimination and just general ignorance. I am thrilled that this APP has made it so easy to find what businesses to avoid AND pointed out that those that cling to backwards conservative ideals are fewer and further between!" 

"As a bigot, it's very important for me to know where I should spend my money. I like supporting companies that discriminate against minorities, and hold hypocritical views based on the Bible. I am glad to know my dollars aren't going to some gay fascist socialists."

Tony Perkins Believes 'True Religious Freedom' Is Only For Anti-gay Christians - AUDIO

TonyperkinsA caller on Family Research Council president Tony Perkins' radio show "Washington Watch" asked the host about his thoughts regarding North Carolina's recent challenge to that state's same-sex marriage ban. The challenge, of course, has turned previous arguments on their heads, with clergy and same-sex couples alike stating that the ban violates the church's religious right to perform the marriages they approve of. 

Perkins, ever an authority on who is deserving of what in American society, gave quite the rich reply.  

Right Wing Watch reported Perkins' statement:

...it’s like with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that we worked on in Mississippi and failed in Arizona and other places, here’s a test of what is a true religious freedom, a freedom that’s based on orthodox religious viewpoints. It has to have a track record, it has to come forth from religious orthodoxy.

You cannot point to the Christian faith and say that same-sex marriage has been a key teaching of the church. You can only point to the opposite, that the church has stood against sexual immorality in terms of sexual relations of those outside of marriage and in particular homosexual behavior. There is no place, there is nothing for them to stand on and say that same-sex marriage has standing in the orthodox Christian faith.  

The religious right prescribing who should receive religious freedom? It seems that the case out of North Carolina is keeping Perkins and others on their toes.

Here Are All The Anti-Gay Haters Who Attended The Signing of Mississippi's 'License To Discriminate' Bill

Haters_ms

We already identified one of the anti-gay leaders who attended the recent signing of Mississippi’s “license to discriminate bill.” But Nick Nicholas identified everyone else who attended the signing — most of them had a direct hand in its creation and eventual passage.

So to continue Nick's good work, we’ve dug up anti-gay dirt on each of the men pictured above and put it in a handy list just for you!

- Jameson Taylor: a supervisor of policy research at the “pro-family” (ie. anti-gay) Mississippi Center for Public Policy who haspersonally written about how “the homosexual lifestyle” will erode “free exercise of religion.”

- Joey Hood: a Mississippi state representative who voted for the anti-gay bill.

- Reverend David Tipton Jr.: the superintendent of the Mississippi District of the United Pentecostal Church who signed a letter to the state governor saying that opponents of the bill were “out-of-state, anti-religious special interest groups.” Y’know, like the ACLU.

Mike Huckabee and Tony Perkins Call Dan Cathy 'Coward' for Chick-fil-A Retreat on Anti-Gay Stance: VIDEO

Huckabee_perkins

Mike Huckabee and Dan Cathy went after Chick-fil-A's Dan Cathy on FOX News program Huckabee over the weekend, reacting to the Chick-fil-A CEO's recent statements that he wants to put the company's anti-gay controversy behind him (even though his personal views haven't changed).

CathySaid Perkins:

"I think we're seeing those in the business community becoming cowards."

Asked Huckabee:

"Why is it that businesses would capitulate to the pressure and demands to just shut up and go away and not say anything when nobody is asking the Left to do that?"

Added Perkins:

"Tolerance is a one-way street for these individuals. What they want to do is force the rest of America not to just to tolerate but to celebrate what they're doing. They want to redefine America...They're doing it in large part because many, even conservative business owners who are fearful of these attacks, are going silent. They're going dark on these issues. They're capitulating. And that's just allowing this group to roll over our freedoms and liberties...What they're wanting to do is silence the vast majority of Americans who disagree with them."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Attended MS 'License To Discriminate' Bill Signing

Eagle Eye opposition research blogger Jeremy Hooper noticed that one of the people attending Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant's signing of the "license to discriminate" law was hate-group leader Tony Perkins.

Tony_perkins_msAt GLAAD, Hooper wrote:

A week ago, I showed you how the Family Research Council, one of the most anti-LGBT organizations in the country, had assembled a team of very hostile voices in order to advocate for Mississippi's version of one of those Arizona-style license-to-discriminate bills that are making their way across the country.  The team, led by FRC president Tony Perkins, framed their advocacy as being against "the homosexual agenda" and they admitted in a latter to MS lawmakers that LGBT people are "those who engage in behavior we find objectionable."  There is no denying that they saw this as a fight against LGBT people and rights...

FRC president Tony Perkins was actually at the bill signing, joining local lawmakers and the governor for what they considered a triumphant moment.  Of the small handful of invitees, Tony was one of the only non-elected officials (and/or non-Mississippi residents) to be there.  He had no real ties other than the fact that he, as one of the strongest practitioners of the anti-LGBT arts, sees this bill as a boon to his cause.  

Although it's really no big surprise that the governor invited Mr. Perkins.  Again, Tony and his equally LGBT-hostile team of advocates pushed and pushed hard for this, one of the many bills that the anti-LGBT movement is trying to dupe state legislatures into passing.  The governor was likely grateful for Tony's handiwork against "those who engage in behavior we find objectionable."

Perkins has repeatedly been invited on television as a conservative and evangelical expert without any mention whatsoever about his ties to a hate group.


Rep. Louie Gohmert Applauds Mississippi’s Religious Freedom Law Against 'Intolerant’ Gays: AUDIO

GohmertRep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), perhaps the nuttiest anti-gay bigot in the House, is very much pleased with Mississippi’s new law that will allow businesses to turn away LGBT people as an “exercise of religion.”

Right Wing Watch reports that on Family Research Council’s radio show Thursday, FRC president Tony Perkins was joined by Gohmert and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant in an anti-gay kumbaya to celebrate Mississippi's ability to do what Arizona and Kansas could not. While there, Gohmert gushed on Bryant, saying:

Governor, we are so proud, you have set such a wonderful example of real freedom. You’ve seen it first hand, there is nobody more intolerant in this country than those that are screaming for tolerance. Christians are not intolerant but whoa, goodness these people that have their leftist agenda that are so intolerant so thanks for having the courage to stand up.
