Does Tony Perkins Want To Ban Dick Cheney From CPAC Because He Supports Gay Marriage?

Evidently Tony Perkins, a man who refers to homosexuality as “abnormal” and blames it for kids killing themselves, still has a home on MSNBC to deliver his hate speech. Well done, Andrea Mitchell! But what else do you expect from a woman who believes Perkins’ Family Research Council has had “such a role in participating [in CPAC] in the past,” when, uh, it hasn’t. (FRC is notoriously one of the groups attacking CPAC over GOProud’s involvement when it doesn’t even go to the event.) But hey, let’s bring in fellow quote machine Christopher Barron, who points out that Perkins doesn’t even have GOProud’s number correct: GOProud doesn’t support marriage equality! And even if it did, is that enough to keep them from having a seat at the conservative table? As Barron reasonably points out, does Perkins want to ban Dick Cheney — who believes more in gay marriage than GOProud — from speaking at CPAC?

    Good thing Barron had “great” abs (according to some) because his face is fucked and his politics are deplorable. Although, that being said, he probably gets a TON of action from closeted Rethugs. GoProud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And u have a smelly crusty brain. I can only imagine the numbers of people who have deserted this web sight because of moronic deadbeats like you complete with childish tantrums and disgusting adolesent remarks. Your stench on this forum has gone on long enough as many have made clear to you. Now get a life or get lost dumbass.

    @Rick Gold: Why should I be tolerant of Tony Perkin’s views, which are both bigoted and non-sensical?

  • CaliGuy73


    I have to agree with GetBalance. Those kind of rude offensive “disgusting” picture-remarks would best be left for other more debased forums, not here. I would add ‘Grow Up’ to GetBalance’s comment. From what i can tell from your past interactions, you’re basically a waste of skin.

    @Rick Gold:

    I applaud Barron for standing up to Perkins and calling him out. It means a lot more to see and hear a gay Republican do it than Dan Savage or one of the other lefties who usually appear on TV to debate Perkins.

    If their discussion was about monetary policy or health care, then yes, I would tolerate their opinions. But when somebody’s basic opinion is that people like me don’t have the right to exist…they don’t get to expect tolerance when their basic premise is the very definition of intolerance.

    It’s like a rapist saying that the woman who tries to stop him from raping her is not being tolerant.

    @GetBalance: The topic is Tony Perkins. Stick to it.
