Wow. Just when you thought Tony Perkins couldn’t say anything dumber than the million dumb things he’s said before, he takes that as a challenge and tops himself. Reacting to a DOE investigation of 55 colleges and their handling of rape complaints, he says that birth control leads to rape and tyranny.
Yesterday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins responded to the news that the Department of Education will investigate 55 colleges and universities for “mishandling sexual assault claims” by claiming that contraception distribution “leads to tyranny.”
Speaking on his “Washington Watch” program, Perkins lamented “the sexualization that is taking place in our culture in general but on college campuses.”
“Contraception is made available as if it were candy which sends a message, well it’s there, it must be there for a reason, and then we’re surprised when — this is not justification, it’s wrong, we are all responsible for our actions — but we’re surprised when people act on these outside factors that they are surrounded by,” Perkins said. “It leads to tyranny.”
Staggering, isn’t it? How does someone say something this moronic and not spend the rest of their lives wandering the streets as people point and laugh at them?
