You knew it had to happen, right? You knew someone was going to blame the Isla Vista shootings on same-sex marriage and that person is Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State and current Family Research Council “senior fellow.” He did it on Tony Perkins’ radio show.
Family Research Council senior fellow Ken Blackwell yesterday linked the Isla Vista mass killings to marriage equality laws, which he claimed are destroying the culture. Speaking with FRC president Tony Perkins on “Washington Watch,” Blackwell blamed the shooting on “the crumbling of the moral foundation of the country” and “the attack on natural marriage and the family.”
“When these fundamental institutions are attacked and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing,” Blackwell said, arguing that people who are “blaming the Second Amendment” are “avoiding talking about what is at the root cause of the problem.”
