disinvited

Tony Perkins’ Forehead Remains Furrowed Over Air Force Having a Problem With Hate Leaders

Congressional hearings for disinviting Franklin Graham and Tony Perkins from speaking at Andrews Air Force Base at a National Prayer Luncheon? Excellent use of lawmakers’ time! At the time, Perkins blamed February’s un-RSVP on his comments about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Now the Air Force says Perkins’ invite was yanked because actual servicemembers claimed it was the hate leader’s web comments about Obama being “willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby.”

We’ll ask you to forget, for just a moment, that Tony Perkins is the guy here actually complaining about involving politics in the military — when he regularly seeks to insert such agendas into military discussion. And as Jeremy Hooper notes, “In this, a civil rights and national security matter in which LGBT people are being told they have to wait around for studies and charts and opinions and legislation, a heterosexual person of faith publicly said, based on nothing but his own faith-based personal opinion, that openly gay soldiers are a national security threat.”

Perkins points to the “12 phone calls” the Air Force received complaining about Perkins’ invitation, and says “that’s pretty insignificant.” And even if we give him the latitude and acknowledge he might be right, this is also a guy whose Family Research Council will make a big deal out of a single complaint about gays on television.

Tony Perkins is a charlatan, who relies on fairytale to spread prejudice.

    Kind of unusual that only 12 phone calls got this scumbag on the dis-invite list. His organization has a process where they can send out an e-mail with pretty simple cut and paste instructions to tens of thousands of his minions whenever they see anything remotley related to the Gays, they in turn blast the network with “complaints” when the vast majority of the “viewers” haven’t even seen the program. I can not imagine that they didn’t use this method to protest his dis-invite. Which would far outnumber any calls against him. We can only hope there something fairly negative that may come out about this scumbag…………………
