Only a few months ago, Tony Perkins rightfully was upset when a gunman came to the headquarters of the Family Research Council to presumably shoot members of his staff. He deplored violence and blamed the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for labeling FRC a hate group.
Well, today we saw why that designation fits like a glove. Perkins said that if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage it could lead to a revolt or a revolution. What exactly does he mean by this? Groups like his are already lobbying, taking out homophobic ads, running campaigns to limit rights, and using the pulpit to spread hate.
What else is there left for Perkins to do in the event of a positive Supreme Court ruling — but resort to the very violence he condemned when his group was targeted? Perkins should explain exactly what he intends to do when the good news comes from the court’s chambers. As far as I’m concerned, he is egging on the more extreme elements in society to potentially engage in terrorist acts.
What do our readers think of his incendiary comments?
