With the board of directors for Boy Scouts USA meeting in Dallas today to talk about reversing the ban on gay scouts and scout leaders. Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council are doing everything in their power to stop it.
“Apparently, children only matter when it’s politically convenient, because President Obama told Scott Pelley yesterday that ‘gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life.’ This is a man who said he isn’t sure he’d let his sons play football for fear that they’d get hurt–yet he can somehow justify putting boys in physically risky situations like these? No father, including Barack Obama, would want his daughters sharing a tent with grown men in the name of ‘access’–but you don’t hear anyone calling that politically incorrect! At the end of the day, this debate is about safety and time-honored principles of morality. If that ruffles a few politically correct feathers, so be it.” – FRC Hate group leader and White Supremecist Tony Perkins, via press release.
