Hate group leader Tony Perkins whines that people of faith will be 'beaten into submission' by Respect for Marriage Act

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council

Tuesday's 61-36 victory in the Senate for the Respect for Marriage Act has gotten many conservative groups and leaders all out of sorts.


But leave it to Tony Perkins, president of SPLC-designated hate group the Family Research Council to win major awards for whining.

"Republicans clearly acknowledged by their support of the Lee, Lankford, and Rubio amendments that this legislation is a threat to the First Amendment freedo­­­­ms of individual Americans. And yet 12 of 12 Republicans still chose to vote for the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act. The (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act makes people prime targets for government harassment, investigation, prosecution, even civil action. This bill is a club, with which the Left will attempt to beat people of orthodox faith--who believe in marriage as God designed it and history has defined--into submission to their destructive sexuality ideology.

 "My experience as a former chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has shown me that religious freedom's greatest threat is not a military force that eradicates or suppresses religious freedom, although that has certainly occurred. The greatest threat are policies like the so-called Respect for Marriage Act. They are what curtails the exercise of religious freedom-- which leads not to a violent overthrow of this fundamental freedom, but to its systematic suppression and eventual loss. In other words, the government has declared open season on anyone who believes in marriage as it's always been, the union of a man and woman.

Am I the only who thinks that Tony's heart simply wasn't into making his statement. Even that nonsense in labeling the bill "The (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act) comes across as more artificial than usual.

In truth, the Respect for Marriage Act has absolutely nothing to do with Perkins and company, no matter how many times he attempts to make it all about them. It's about LGBTQ people and our rights to make choices in our lives instead of having those choices forcefully being made for us.
