We all know that Tony Perkins is a serial liar -- at least, those of us who have bothered to fact-check his statements. Now he's whining about the FRC being designated as an anti-gay hate group. I like this especially:
. . . in fact, they seem more interested in fundraising ploys than fighting wrongdoing.
Pot, kettle, black.
"Family Research Council will continue to champion marriage and family as the foundation of our society and will not acquiesce to those seeking to silence the Judeo-Christian views held by millions of Americans. We call on the Southern Poverty Law Center to apologize for this slanderous attack and attempted character assassination."
Lies, in order:
1. No, FRC is doing nothing to support families; it's purely an anti-gay group;
2. No one's trying to silence you, Tony -- you certainly get enough play from WaPo and cable news;
3. Just how many millions are we talking about here? One? Two? Out of 310. I doubt that it's more -- most of us have some moral sense.
John Aravosis did a little research and came up with quite a list. I'm not going to excerpt it here, because one example is worse than the last, and I advise you to read it on an empty stomach. Jeremy Hooper has his own list.
I'll think you'll agree, there's nothing slanderous about FRC's new status.
