One thing which was pointed out to me about Tony Perkins's interview yesterday on CNN was when he said:
"There are some same-sex couples that are probably GREAT parents."
It reminds me of the time where Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage said last year :
"there are some gay people who are wonderful parents."
But both of these figures (Perkins and Gallagher) have gone on record implying awful things about gay parenting.
For instance, Gallagher once said “at least polygamy, for all its ugly defects, is an attempt to secure stable mother-father families for children.”
And Perkins claimed his children couldn't be gay because he is "teaching them the rights ways that they are to interact as human beings"
So which beliefs do Perkins and Gallagher hold?
If Perkins and Gallagher think that gays make good parents, then why do they campaign tooth-and-nail on the distortion that marriage equality would harm children? And why do their organizations imply awful distortions about gays harming children?
It's a matter of simply hypocrisy. But as long as no one pushes the issue, they can get away with it.
If the media won't push the issue, then perhaps it's time that we did.
