Perkins Tells Deliberate Lie About Sodomy Laws

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council is a desperate man. He’s losing the fight over LGBT equality and he knows it, but he has to keep the money flowing in somehow. What’s a good Christian to do? Lie through his teeth, of course, something Perkins is both experienced and adept at.

“The idea that conservatives or Christians can get along with this agenda and fall in line is just false,” Perkins said. “I’m going to tell you, those who follow Scripture will not yield on this.”

Disregarding the Supreme Court’s 2003 ruling in Lawrence v. Texas, Perkins incorrectly stated that gays “have always have been able to do what they want in the privacy of their own homes.”

Well sure, as long as you ignore the more than 400 years in which you could be thrown in jail or even put to death in this country and the colonies that preceded it. And Perkins knows this because 12 years ago, when the Supreme Court finally put an end to such laws, he threw a fit about it just like he’s throwing a fit about Friday’s ruling — and for all the same reasons, too. He railed then against unelected judges overturning the will of the people and “judicial activism” and how the Supreme Court was thumbing its nose at God.

Now he suddenly pretends that there was never a need for the ruling he raged so loudly against because gay people were always free to be gay in this country! Voila, history rewritten, narrative rescued from those inconvenient facts.

    …Perkins incorrectly stated that gays “have always have been able to do what they want in the privacy of their own homes.”

    Incorrectly indeed. The entire reason that Lawrence v Texas was a court case to begin with is that Lawrence and Garner were arrested under the anti-sodomy laws. “Always have been able to do what they want” indeed.

    Anti-sodomy laws are an invention by the Democrat party! NO church has an official creed that says gays should be put in jail! (They should be killed on the spot).

    theschwa channeling Egnore so hopefully he doesn’t show up.

    From the article:

    “What they’ve done is they’ve thrust their home — their bedroom, if you will — into the public square, into our schools where our children are being taught this normalcy of homosexuality, comparing it to heterosexuality.”

    OMG! That means heterosexuals have been thrusting (they just can’t help it, can they?) their home — their bedroom, if you will — into the public square, into our schools … you’ve been teaching out kids about heteroSEXuality?

    Wait a minute! I thought you didn’t want sex education? I’m so confused! … But I ain’t alone!

    @ Doug (#3), he just makes so much sense and is so convincing. I am now one of his Apostles…if he will have me, since I am unworthy.

    Is Shitkins going to deny that there were anti-miscegenation laws next? Would he tell that to the white supremacists he’s friends with and who he paid a shitload of money to?

    Sodomy laws have only been unconstitutional in the US for about 10 years now. Tony Perkins has a very short memory. Even then, some states continue to punish it anyway. At one time even straight people weren’t allowed to commit ‘sodomy’ in the privacy of their own bedrooms — which is too bad because then Perkins probably would not have been born.
