MSNBC & CNN Political Pundit And FRC Hate Group President Tony Perkins Attacks Lesbian Den Mother

The past few days we’ve real a lot about Jennifer Tyrrell, the Ohio lesbian mother who was ousted as a den leader from her son’s Tiger Scouts chapter because of the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay stand.  (Well at least in the LGBT Media)

Tony Perkins who is a GOP political pundit for MSNBC and also CNN and also President of the SLPC officially designated hate group the Family Research Center has also written about Tryell’s problem with the Boy Scouts. One in which they bash Tyrrell for not only being a lesbian but also for abusing her son for putting him in such a position.

The Boy Scouts have been bad-mouthed by celebrities, dropped from sponsorships, evicted from property, and hauled into court–yet not once have they wavered from their mission to build character in America’s sons. Unlike corporate America, the Scouts don’t cave when critics come calling. Even when those critics are Ohio moms who use their sexuality to harass the organization for its standards. Unfortunately for Jennifer Tyrrell, the biggest victims of her advocacy are her own sons, who have suffered the embarrassment and humiliation of their mothers’ national campaign against the Scouts’ membership criteria. Before she became a Den mother, Jennifer knew the Scouts’ policy on homosexuality–but she signed up anyway. When parents complained about her involvement, the state chapter asked Jennifer to step aside. Now, the Tyrrell family is on a nationwide tour to “get her pack back.” And the Left has been all too willing to help. From talk shows to award shows, the Tyrrells have used their new platform to paint the Boy Scouts as hate-filled intolerants. The organization is used to the abuse. Seven-year-old Cruz Tyrrell is not. But sadly, he’s the one being exploited to advance an agenda that, in light of the Constitution, is irrelevant. Under the freedom of association, the Tyrrells are more than welcome to form their own group of Diversity Scouts and set their own membership criteria for leaders. What they are not entitled to do is force the Boy Scouts to bend to their ideas of what that membership criteria should be.

Ah, the Boy Scouts of America.  Marching forward into the 19th century  And the Family Research Council marching backward to the 17th Century.

I hope that MSNBC and CNN are well pleased with themselves that they use the President of such a despicable and well documented hate group that would attack a woman and her children on its news programs.

MSNBC and CNN should be ashamed.
