Tony Perkins is nothing if not a persistent salesman. And the idea he’s been selling for the last year or so is that “intolerance” of Christians here at home somehow fuels persecution — real persecution, not the fake kind he claims exists here — abroad. Like if you don’t let a pizza shop discriminate against gay people in Indiana, Muslims in Pakistan will murder more Christians than they otherwise would have.
“As we allow this religious intolerance to spread here at home, persecution will spread abroad. We have to stand and defend this faith because Christians abroad will suffer if we don’t.”
This argument is brought to you by people who are totally incapable of using logic.
