Dan Savage: “Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council sits on a pile of dead gay kids”

The outspoken Dan Savage went all out and balls to the wall over the Family Research Council‘s Tony Perkins and former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann in a recent speech at Winona State University saying that “every dead gay kid is a victory for the Family Research Council” and that Perkins “sits on a pile of dead gay kids every day when he goes to work — and he calls himself a Christian.”

“Tony Perkins tells parents whose kids come out to reject them,” Savage says in the clip. “Tony Perkins tells the parents of queer kids to do what Tony Perkins damn well knows drives those kids to suicide — doubles their already quadruple risk of suicide.”

And when it comes to Michele Bachmann, “We will always have ignorant dicks like Michele Bachmann and her fag husband

While I don’t really approve of the slur in a “live public  forum”I whole-heartedly agree 100 percent with its sentiment on Marcus Bachmann

Dan Savage is an out-spoken individual and plain speaking.  He always has been and always will be.  He doesn’t comb over pre-prepared statements removing anything that might offend anyone and making it so politically correct that the power of his message his lost.    He speaks from his gut and gets in your face.  he always has and he always will.  We all think the things that he says but he has the nerve to say it aloud.
