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.”
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.
