Family Research Council President Tony Perkins calls on social conservatives to stop giving to GOP


Family Research Council President Tony Perkins is calling on social conservatives to stop donating to national Republicans until the GOP stops going wobbly on gay marriage.

“Until the RNC and the other national Republican organizations grow a backbone and start defending core principles, don’t send them a dime of your hard-earned money,” Perkins wrote on Thursday in an e-mail obtained by CNN. “If you want to invest in the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who reflect your values and organizations you trust-like FRC Action.”

The RNC’s post-election autopsy released last month suggested the party moderate its tone on gay marriage to better appeal to younger voters. Still, the party is expected to vote on Friday to reaffirm its position against gay marriage. A majority of the country now backs gay marriage in public opinion polling.

Perkins said the GOP’s approach was counterproductive. “Instead of trying to appease millennials, Republicans should try educating them on why marriage matters,” Perkins wrote. “There’s an entire group of ‘Countercultural Warriors’ full of compelling young leaders who are all going to the mat to protect marriage.”

Tony Perkins = paid shill for creating the illusion that the GOP is going "wobbly" on same sex marriage.

The only good thing about Republicans: they know how to control their politicians.

They should form their own party. What has the GOP done for the bible humpers? Abortion and birth control is still legal. Schools are still teaching evolution. Gay people are no living in concentration camps. Clearly they would do better on their own. Of course when they do this and still dont get their way they will have only themselves to blame.

Tony Perkins seems like such a closet case to me.

I sure hope Republicans listen to him.

Am I the only one who's so distracted by his too short sideburns that I never hear what he's saying?
