Perkins: If SCOTUS Makes Gay Marriage Legal US Will See ‘Firestorm’ Of ‘Revolution’

Post image for Perkins: If SCOTUS Makes Gay Marriage Legal US Will See ‘Firestorm’ Of ‘Revolution’

Tony Perkins yesterday threatened the Supreme Court (SCOTUS), saying if they strike down DOMA or legalize same-sex marriage, they will see America in a “firestorm” of “revolution.”

Claiming “the issue of abortion” is still unresolved in America, Perkins, the head of the anti-gay hate group, Family Research Council, says both abortion and same-sex marriage are “unnatural.”

Even though Perkins is living in a Christian dominionist theocratic bubble, even he must recognize that America spoke this week, tossing out the rape caucus, the anti-gay haters, and supporting same-sex marriage at every opportunity.

What you’re about to see is a religious-war-cum-conservative-meltdown.



Zack Ford at Think Progress rightly notes:


Ironically, it was just three months ago that the Family Research Council was distancing itself from violent rhetoric as much as possible. In the wake of the shooting at the group’s headquarters, FRC lashed out at the LGBT movement, blaming the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” label and even President Obama for somehow inciting anti-Christian violence. This week, the group has already called for “civil disobedience,” a new “Gideon’s army,” and now a “firestorm of opposition,” a “revolt,” and a “revolution” that could “explode,” all because same-sex couples in three more states can marry. If FRC truly believes violent rhetoric does not belong in the so-called “culture war,” it needs to start holding itself accountable.

Instead of calling the Family Research Council an anti Gay hate group, just call them a hate group. They certainly don't contain themselves to just anti gay hatred.

When all else fails turn to violence. In a democracy the people decide. Is Perkins unaware of this? History will look back at Perkins and his kin will the same non-understanding we have when we look back at the burning a witches at the stack, the enslaving of a continent, or the gladitorial games. The beliefs of a nomadic bronze-age nomadic tribe are not what we should use to guide our lives.

Does he realize that he is REALLY the evil one? America DOES! :)

History will not look back on Perkins at all. Not even a footnote.

Hi James! Sadly, I must disagree with you. In your favor, he WILL be remembered, but in a very unfavorable way. If I'm remembered at all, I would hope I've shed a good light on this world. Dingbat Perky has already screwed that possibility.

I get it!

Gay marriage=bad


Intimidation+Threat-of-violence+Violence+"Pro-Life" Rhetoric=God's Work.

CastleRockBear November 9, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Why is this man not in prison for inciting violence? Why is this man still allowed to be free to be a hateful SHREW? He is a bigoted idiot, nothing more! I hope some one takes him out…and let's not miss this time!

(Who's to know that this PoS isn't being watched and listened to every speech/video he makes?) Our government does not take these threats lightly. Believe me, his time is well at hand. Pray for certainty and swiftness!
Blessings and Peace!

I prefer referencing Genesis, in which "God" condemns gays but has Lot impregnate his own daughters. Proselytizing types, including the Witnesses and the Mormons, are non-plussed when you use this illustration of the stupidity of biblical morality.

You and your AFA idiots have been called out and LOST. We are going to allow freedom. Not your religious crap. We believe in a kinder God. Not the one you invented. You sit there thinking we all agree with you, not true. We the people see all kinds of families and they work. I see families like yours in my community hiding the thing you do behind closed doors and putting yourselves in the position of being God's right hand. Not happening. Just remember, we are the ones sitting next to you in church, seething with disdain for your group. Disbanded, this is a country that fought for FREEDOM from the crown, Freedom of religion and the way we live. I am a married heterosexual and I am sick and tired of your group thinking they run us, blackmailing us with bully laws against our children. Holding our children hostage. God will deal with all of you It will not be

I think your last word was omitted… it likely would have been "pleasant." Cheers to your great post!

He says a man and a man is unnatural …. that is one of the greatest lies ever.
It's unnatural to:
have vaccination,
bloodpressure pills,
and so on.
i bet that asshole is using more than one of those items.
Double standards. Got to love 'em.

littlebadwolf November 9, 2012 at 11:42 pm

yeah, right! having achieved the high and happy estate of legal matrimony, gays and lesbians are going to run right out and enlist in the revolution. the whole purpose is to stay at home and play house, just like other adults.

When will these idiots ever learn that you cannot win against the people? If you don't like the way this country thinks, there is an easy way to fix the situation:


DarthEVaderCheney November 10, 2012 at 10:57 am

Right on! and move quickly!

There's already a "revolution" going on: It's Americans leaving the Roman and fundamentalistical evilgelical churches by the thousands.

"Redefining marriage" and same-sex marriage becoming "the law of the land" would mean that ONLY same-sex couples would be eligible for marriage. That isn't the goal – never has been, never will be. Heterosexual marriage will lose NOTHING if same-sex couples are allowed to legally marry.

dcjdjay November 11, 2012 at 12:41 pm

And by "Firestorm of Revolution," he means that Tony Perkins will turn into an even bigger flaming, closet-case than he already is.
