The Air Force has disinvited Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and the Religious right is not happy about it. As always, claiming Christian Victim™ Status, CBN reports (emphasis added):
Questions surround what appears to be the censoring of a Christian leader by the U.S. military.
Nearly four months ago, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins received an invitation to speak at a national prayer luncheon held, Thursday, at Andrews Air Force Base.
It was not an unusual request. Perkins is an ordained minister and veteran of the Marine Corps.
But he’s also a vocal opponent of rolling back the military’s “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy that prohibits gays from serving openly in the military.
“This is not an issue of two men or two women in camouflage holding hands,” Perkins said. “It becomes an issue of intimidation. It becomes an issue of coercion.”
NO, Assholes, it’s because Perkins is a FLAMING LIAR when it comes to, oh, everything that comes out of his mouth. He is tied to white supremacist groups and individuals. His vehement and irrational opposition to the repeal of DADT and his vilification of the President, it’s no surprise they don’t want his stupid, lying, bigoted ass there and they have no obligation to have him there.
Perkins states that gay men will go on sex rampages in the showers and barracks, attacking other soldiers at will. Goddamn him! Allowing gay men and women to serve openly in the military means that they won’t have to hide the identity of their loved ones at home — it means honesty and dignity.
These goddamned LIARS like Tony Perkins and Brian Fischer, who want to imprison gay people, need to be put in their place. You cannot just make these kinds of accusations and not be called out on it.
