On yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Family Research Council president Tony Perkins said that if people believe President Obama is a Muslim, then that is Obama’s own fault. In response to a caller who insisted that Obama is “a Muslim and every time he does something he’s scoring brownie points for his side, that’s why he can go golfing and not have no problems,” Perkins said that it is reasonable to believe that the president is in fact a Muslim or at least “sympathetic to Muslims.” Perkins said Obama’s actions as...

There is a trend among Religious Right activists to cheer on Israel’s policies towards the Palestinian territories while conveniently ignoring other Israeli programs, such as government subsidies for abortion coverage. But on his radio show “Washington Watch” yesterday, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins went all in to praise an Israeli domestic policy that is at odds with what American conservatives are pushing at home, hailing Israeli gun laws and saying that Israeli cities are much safer than their American counterparts. Does this mean that Perkins, of all... MORE >

Tony Perkins today emailed members of the Family Research Council a conspiratorial message on the supposed dangers of Common Core, or as he calls it, “Obamacore.” He warns that Common Core is pushing “attacks on religious values and freedoms” and using “propaganda” to ensure that “children are indoctrinated with a liberal ideology that celebrates sexual perversion, worships the creation rather than the Creator, all at the expense of academic achievement and our nation’s Christian heritage.” We wonder if Mike Huckabee, a close ally of the...

Back in June, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council said that gay rights advocates are “going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians,” and yesterday he agreed with a caller named Janet who predicted on his “Washington Watch” radio show that anti-Christian violence will erupt in America. After the caller wondered if we are “going to find ourselves being loaded in cattle cars like it was when the Nazis took over before we realize we are in such terrible danger,” Perkins hailed her claim as an “excellent point.”...

When two Pennsylvania businesses declared that they would refuse service to gay and lesbian customers, it was only a matter of time before anti-LGBT activists rose up to defend the businesses’ discriminatory actions. One Pennsylvania bridal shop refused service to lesbian customers because the shop’s owner said it would “break God’s law,” and the owner of the Inne of the Abingtons similarly refused service to a lesbian couple. As a result, the bridal shop’s Yelp page and the Inne’s Yelp page have received an uptick in reviews, many critical of their... MORE >

Tony Perkins is furious that the National Republican Congressional Committee is supporting three gay Republican candidates. Speaking of Perkins, he, Anne Graham Lotz, Richard Land, and others will be heading to Israel next week as part of a "Christians in Solidarity with Israel" trip being sponsored by the National Religious Broadcasters. Allen West headlined last night's Family-PAC fundraiser (the AFA's Sandy Rios is the PAC's VP.) It is nice to see other right wing "historians" mindlessly repeating David Barton's nonsense: "In fact,... MORE >

On Monday’s “Washington Watch,” host Tony Perkins lamented how increasingly difficult it is for Christian business owners to actively discriminate against and refuse service to LGBT people or same-sex couples based on their “religious views on sexuality.” Perkins said that business owners who fear challenges to their discriminatory practices from gay couples should prominently place signs in their businesses explaining their belief in “traditional marriage,” and emphasizing that any profits earned from LGBT customers will be donated to “...
