Perkins: Homosexuality Is "Man Shaking His Fist In The Face Of God"
Family Research Council president Tony Perkins joined Janet Mefferd yesterday to discuss the campaign progressive groups are leading to get companies drop ties to the Charity Give Back Group (formerly the Christian Values Network). The CGBG is a for-profit company that helps consumers direct a percentage of their purchases at participating retail outlets to a variety of right-wing organizations including the FRC and Focus on the Family. LGBT rights and women’s rights advocates are calling on companies to leave the CGBG over its support for FRC and Focus on the Family. CGBG’s spokesman is also an ultraconservative, anti-gay activist. Perkins told Mefferd that the pressure campaign represents bullying, even though the FRC, Focus on the Family and the spokesman of the CGBG have their own history of using pressure campaigns to influence companies.
Perkins went on to explain that the conflict has a spiritual component, arguing that homosexuality “is essentially man shaking his fist in the face of God”:
Perkins: They will not be satisfied until those who hold to a traditional, natural view of marriage are completely silenced….They are so intent on accomplishing this that anyone and everyone who would challenge them must be silenced. And we are seeing this in the media, and now we’re seeing this into the marketplace. It’s an effort to stigmatize, to marginalize and ultimately to cause people to self-censor.
I don’t think you can look at homosexuality and what is taking place without examining the spiritual dynamics here. This is essentially man shaking his fist in the face of God and saying I don’t need you, that we will do it our way. It is the height of humanism.
