Tony Perkins joins 'diaper pastor' and AFA in an interview of lies.

According to Right Wing Watch:

On Today’s Issues, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins hosted and praised North Carolina pastor and anti-gay activist Patrick Wooden, the very same pastor who said that gay men “have to wear a diaper or a butt plug just to be able to contain their bowels,” to condemn the Southern Poverty Law Center’s work against anti-gay organizations. Wooden has not only focused on “what happens to the male anus” but also said homosexuality is “wicked, deviant, immoral, self-destructive, anti-human” and should make people “literally gag.”

During the show, Wooden claimed that SPLC, which he recently protested alongside Peter LaBarbera and Matt Barber, was “hijacked” and “infiltrated” by gay rights advocates, and called homosexuality “deviant” and a “death style,” and even claimed that the LGBT community discriminates against African American males.
Perkins accused the SPLC of trying to “silence the debate” over gay rights and Wildmon asserted that the SPLC “switched over” to covering LGBT issues because racism is in “rearview mirror here in our country and we moved beyond that and they had to have something to do,” and labeled the AFA and FRC anti-gay hate groups simply because the two organization “stands for traditional marriage and against homosexual marriage.” However, their stance on marriage equality was not part of the SPLC’s criteria as “not one of them was listed because of their position on same-sex marriage.”

The very fact that Tony Perkins and Tim Wildmon would join with a man who falsely claims that gay men have to wear diapers is enough to prove SPLC's point about their organizations (American Family Association and the Family Research Council) being hate groups a million times over. And Wooden just happens to be one of the leaders in the effort to push awful anti-family, anti-marriage equality amendment in North Carolina.

But don't think that this would stop Perkins any. Apparently he is still popular on MSNBC and CNN.

Honestly, doesn't the media have any standards. If they are going to have Perkins on their shows, the very least they can do is grill him on his comments and his partnerships.

NC anti-family amendment - just who is ruled by fear and hatred?

In May, North Carolina will be voting on one of those dreary anti-marriage equality amendments (Amendment One).

Those pushing it say that they are not ruled by hate or animus against the gay community. They claim that they merely want to "protect marriage."

Judge for yourself just who is in the right here.

In other words, this (North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden, one of the chief organizers for the North Carolina amendment to ban same-sex marriage):

vs. this (the families in the middle of this amendment fight):

The choice is yours, North Carolina.

Editor's note - As of now, no supporters of the amendment have made any comment about Wooden's words.
