Perkins Blue Over Congress’s Green Focus

In his “Washington Update,” Tony Perkins expresses his frustration that “Congress returned to work–not on judges, marriage, or the war supplemental bill–but on changing the weather” and outlines his strong opposition to the Lieberman-Warner climate change bill: “The bill’s 500 pages are a complicated mess of distorted science, pork projects, and a tax-and-trade solution that will send U.S. jobs overseas and result in the most massive expansion of the federal government since the New Deal.” Perkins is particularly stunned that lawmakers are concerned with the “inconclusive” evidence of global warming rather than what’s really going to make the country melt: “If anything is heating up, it’s marriage. This Congress is becoming increasingly irrelevant to the real crises facing this nation as they refuse to intervene.”
