Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, regularly sends communications to his members saying he is on the verge of turning back support of gay marriage. He tells his faithful that if they each send just a few hundred dollars, he will see to it gay marriage is stopped in its tracks.
All one has to do is tune in the news everyday to see he has made not one inch of progress to turn it back and, in fact, it is on the acsendance. But, I’m sure there are a hundreds or thousands of people who read his pleas and send him money. A sucker is born every minute.
A few years back, Brother Tony paid white supremisist, David Duke, about $80,000 for a mailing list of Klu Klux Klan members to use in a political campaign he was managing. There seems little doubt the Klan is not far from the heart of Tony Perkins.
In the Klan’s hayday, black people represented some kind of devil group to its members. There was a fear, something like a panic, about what would happen if black people became part of main stream society.
Tony Perkins plays gay marriage in a similar way. He tells people to fear gay marriage- – it must be stopped or all is lost.
Mainstreaming black people did not damage society. Gay marriage will not do so either.
But, there is money to be made telling lies.
