Who Is Tony Perkins?

Who is Tony Perkins?

Wikipedia states: “Anthony Richard ‘Tony’ Perkins (born March 20, 1963) is president of the Family Research Council, a conservative public policy and lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C. Perkins was previously a police officer and television reporter, served two terms as a Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. Senate in 2002.”

According to Right Wing Watch: “Last week, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins appeared on the ‘Point Of View’ radio program to discuss his participation in the marriage conference hosted by the Vatican in November, saying that the event has convinced him that the Religious Right will win the fight against gay marriage in America because ‘we’re on the side of the one who wrote history.'”

The Southern Poverty Law Center listed the Family Research Council as an anti-gay hate group in 2010, and Perkins is a frequently-booked anti-gay marriage and anti-LGBT pundit.
