Black homobigots rally with 'pro-family' Tony Perkins tomorrow
“A Marriage Protection Amendment is necessary. Activist courts have left our nation with no other option. Marriage will either be defined by the courts or by the people. Now is the time for Congress to act!”
— FRC President, Tony Perkins
Tomorrow at 10:30 a.m., jughead Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, will vogue with 100 black homobigots in a joint press conference to support the Marriage Protection Amendment.
That faith-based cash and face time must do wonders for the coffers of these pastors. Shameful.
Look at who he’s humping for support:
* Bishop Harry Jackson, Chairman of High Impact Leadership Coalition (said this in all seriousness: “I’m not against gay people; I’m not trying to bash them per se. I just think that we’re in such a terrible situation in my community that I’ve got to protect the institution.”)
* Star Parker, President of The Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education. Yes, the Star Parker who has stolen a copy of our Homosexual Agenda and has been moaning about the positive trend of the general public’s views about gay rights. (“Churches which promote homosexual “marriage” are threatening to bring even more chaos into the lives of children.”)
Commenter Kevin reminded me that Tony Perkins has ties to David Duke and the Klan, which makes the fact that these 100 black “leaders” are appearing with Perkins even more sick. From a June 2005 Blend post:
It seems that family-oriented, pious Tony paid former KKK Wizard, cosmetic-surgery-enhanced, self-proclaimed head of the “European American” movement, David Duke, $82K for his mailing list of affinity knuckledraggers in 1996.
Why has no one, especially these courted black pastors, called FRC on this low-rent white supremacist co-mingling by Perkins? From The Nation:
Four years ago, Perkins addressed the Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), America’s premier white supremacist organization, the successor to the White Citizens Councils, which battled integration in the South. In 1996 Perkins paid former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke $82,500 for his mailing list. At the time, Perkins was the campaign manager for a right-wing Republican candidate for the US Senate in Louisiana. The Federal Election Commission fined the campaign Perkins ran $3,000 for attempting to hide the money paid to Duke.
