Oh gosh, we’ll get to the weirdness of the Coop hosting this segment in a sec, but don’t you just want to punch Tony Perkins, Family Research Council President’s face in? By “punch” we mean “invalidate his intolerance through legal due process”, of course. It is pretty gratifying to watch him bluster on as Dan Savage senses fear radiating from Perkins’ beady little eyes. I know, I know, this discussion should have happened before Prop. 8 passed, but it didn’t. We’re having it now by making ourselves and our point visible, though and that’s worth celebrating.
It’s hard watching Anderson Cooper anchor a segment about gay rights â€” particularly, gay marriage â€” when he can’t even acknowledge where he stands on the issue.
