Tony Perkins went on CBS on Sunday morning and flat out lied about wanting the Supreme Court justices to be impeached if they vote to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage. He said so just last week, but on national television he just plain lied about it:
Bob Schieffer: Did you really say that justices that come down on the side of gays on this should be impeached?
Tony Perkins: No, I didn’t say that…I didn’t say anything about the impeachment of the judges.
Here’s the video. The exchange begins about 3:30:
Apparently Mr. Perkins doesn’t realize that when he says thing on record, they stay on record. This was just a few days ago:
Mickelson suggested that if this happens, members of Congress should try to “remove” the Supreme Court’s “jurisdiction” over the marriage issue and “nullify” its decision, sending the message to the justices that “if you try it again we will impeach your sorry keisters.” Perkins heartily agreed: “I think you’re absolutely right.”
