Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values, who has called this week’s marriage equality ruling in Texas a “hollow victory,” yesterday called it “one of the most egregious forms of judicial activism of our generation.” “The federal judiciary is out of control,” Saenz told Family Research Council head Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of Washington Watch. He promised that there would be an “epic battle” to defeat marriage equality in Texas. Similarly irate, Perkins said that judges and the Obama administration believe they can “tear away... MORE >

Sen. Ted Cruz has been rounding up support for his State Marriage Defense Act among conservative talk show hosts, and yesterday Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values sang Cruz’s praises during an interview with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. Saenz also alleged that growing support for marriage equality is nothing but a myth. There is this notion that things have changed so much, there’s all this momentum from the media suggesting that people’s views have changed on homosexual marriage. But we’re not seeing that at the polls. All of these victories... MORE >

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council alleged yesterday that people who agree with the scientific consensus regarding evolution and climate change are actually out of step with modern science. Perkins, who has previously professed belief in Young Earth Creationism (the belief that the earth is only several thousand years old), said on Washington Watch that “the theory of evolution just doesn’t work when you consider all the holes, look at the fossil record, the molecular isolation, transitional difficulties, irreducible complexity, cyclical change, genetic limits, there are...

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins is upset about new state efforts to bar the use of “ex-gay” therapy on minors, which he says are no different from laws banning someone from helping a person out of a burning building. “If people want to engage in behavior that is destructive, personally, I want to warn them about it, I don’t want to be silenced from the ability of saying ,‘Hey, your house is on fire, you might want to come out,’” Perkins said. “Of course you’re saying that’s absurd, who would ever pass a law saying you can...

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. The tired old arguments about gay recruitment seem to never die… but maybe our new Illuminati overlords will save folks like Rush Limbaugh from the gay menace. 5. Marriage Equality Makes Kids Gay Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council debated a caller on his radio show, Washington Watch, about why the FRC uses the phrase “natural marriage” since the definition of marriage has fluctuated over history and throughout different cultures. Ultimately, Perkins... MORE >

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz joined Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on Washington Watch yesterday to discuss his proposed State Marriage Defense Act, which as we explained earlier would “make it more difficult for married same-sex couples to receive legal recognition.” Cruz said that the Obama administration’s support for LGBT equality represents an “abuse of power and lawlessness” and chided gay rights advocates for their “litigation approach.” “Our heart weeps for the damage to traditional marriage that has been done,” Cruz said,...

FRC Preposterously Blames 'Left-Wing Extremists' For Most 'Incidents Of Domestic Terrorism In This Country'

Tony Perkins and Ken Blackwell of the Family Research Council are attacking the Obama administration over a Ohio National Guard training drill last month that simulated a threat from “two school employees who are disgruntled over the government’s interpretation of the Second Amendment.” News of the drill started circulating in conservative media this week, feeding anti-Obama paranoia (even though last year’s drill simulated a threat from a radical environmentalists). On yesterday’s edition of Washington Watch, Blackwell and Perkins said that the drill must... MORE >
Perkins: Same-Sex Marriage 'Will Create A Level Of Inequality That Has Never Been Seen In Our Country'

The anti-gay Family Research Council is unsurprisingly dismayed by a federal court ruling that will require Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages performed in states where such unions are legal. FRC president Tony Perkins said in a press release today the decision represents a “deep betrayal of the judicial system infected with activist judges who are legislating from the bench” and threatens the freedom of speech. Perkins even said that marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples “will create a level of inequality that has never been seen in our country as people are... MORE >
