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 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.
