Anti-Gay American Evangelicals Depicted as the Hateful Cartoon Characters They Are: VIDEO

Homophobes

Political cartoonist Mark Fiore calls out anti-gay hatemongers Bryan FischerScott Lively, Tony Perkins and Rick Warren for playing ignorant after encouraging Uganda to pass its horrendous law which penalizes LGBT people with life imprisonment. 

Fiore writes:

"Since Uganda's anti-gay law was signed recently, it's been amusing (and maddening) to watch various religious right characters scurry for cover. When nobody was watching, the holier-than-thou set have been visiting Uganda preaching their extreme anti-gay views. Now that people are appalled at Uganda's life-in-prison-for-homosexuals law, the "evangelical" right-wing preachers are laying low or rewriting history."

And if you enjoy this video, you'll love Fiore's takes on Arizona’s discrimination licenseRepublicans love gay marriage and straights who have been injured by gay marriage.

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.

Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Blasts Disney Channel for Featuring Same-Sex Couple: AUDIO

Like other anti-gay activists, Family Research Council leader Tony Perkins isn’t too happy with Disney for featuring its first same-sex couple on children’s programming. 

PerkinsSaid Perkins:

After a year of planning, Disney finally made good on its promise, using the show "Good Luck Charlie" to give Taylor two moms. A spokesman says the show "was developed under the [advice] of child development experts..." But if Disney thinks that'll fly with parents, they've spent too much time in Fantasyland. OneMillionMoms is flooding the channel with complaints. Like us, they know what the research says: which is that kids who are deprived of a mom or dad grow up with significantly more emotional and academic problems. So it's a little ironic that the show's called, "Good luck, Charlie." Without a dad, he'll need it. 

RightWingWatch notes for the record that it’s Charlie’s friend, not Charlie herself, who has the two moms. And Charlie is a girl.

But those are just silly facts, and we all know Perkins doesn’t get along with facts.

Tony Perkins Angry That Gays Are Signing Up For Obamacare

PerkinsBecause Tony Perkins and his ilk aren't happy unless LGBT citizens are kept sick, oppressed, and alone, the FRC is upset that gays are signing up for Obamacare. Reacting to the Out2Enroll campaign, an independent movement targeting the disproportionately uninsured LGBT community, Tony Perkins launched into a rant about how "a high risk pool fed by even higher risk behavior" would destroy the medical care system due to the increased medical demand. Perhaps it's somewhat comforting to know that it's not just the "cross-dressing men" who he thinks aren't deserving of health care, but everyone who isn't already a young, healthy individual. Perkins said in part:

As taxpayers are about to find out, the system wasn't designed to withstand the volume of elderly, sick, and at-risk patients most likely to enroll. Either the exchanges will buckle under the weight or the government (i.e. taxpayers) will start shouldering even higher costs to compensate for the medical demand.

So in short, anyone who needs health care insurance is a drain on the system for the healthy people who evidently need it more.


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.

CNN Allows Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins to Link Polygamy and Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Perkins

CNN failed to inform its audience that Family Research Council's Tony Perkins is a hate group leader and also failed to challenge Tony Perkins' assertion that same-sex marriage is a "slippery slope" to polygamy during a Monday edition of Erin Burnett OutFront about the recent Utah polygamy ruling guest hosted by Jake Tapper, Equality Matters reports:

Perkins, who routinely links homosexuality to pedophilia and refers to homosexuality as a “lifestyle” of “perversion,” was all-too-happy to use this opportunity to revive his organization’s longstanding opposition to Lawrence v. Texas and support for laws criminalizing gay sex.

[Anti-polygamy activist Laurie] Allen, who herself was raised in a polygamous environment and staunchly opposes polygamy, criticized Perkins for attempting to compare polygamous relationships and same-sex relationships, calling his arguments “salacious propaganda.”

Rather than pointing out the absurdity of Perkins’ arguments, however, Tapper went on to quote an FRC statement suggesting that the legalization of same-sex marriage might create a “slippery slope” to the legalization of polygamous marriage in the future, despite the fact that the Waddoups did not actually legalize polygamous marriage.
