Tony Perkins CNN Hate group Leader

Carlos Maza of  Equality Matters writes:

More than 32,000 people have signed a petition asking CNN to stop hosting anti-gay hate group leader Tony Perkins to speak on behalf of America’s Christians following Perkins’ appearance on the network to discuss the Supreme Court’s recent marriage equality decisions.  Just minutes after the Supreme Court struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on June 26, CNN invited Perkins – president of the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council (FRC) – to peddle lies about the decision’s impact on religious liberty. No other Christians were interviewed during the segment, despite the fact that a majority of Christians oppose DOMA.

It’s long past time that we stand up and demand integrity and accountability from CNN and other news outlets that host Perkins and portray him as the voice of “Christian American” on political and LGBT subjects when he is not.  Would CNN have KKK Grand Wizard David Duke on to discuss the Zimmerman verdict?  No.  Because the outrage would be far too great.  It’s time for us to show some outrage.  GLAAD will not ask CNN directly to ban Perkins it might upset the very people who don;t give a damn about us.  So if they won’t do it, we must.

Sign the petition!

Redditt it, Tweet it, and pass it along.

It’s time to get Perkins off the air once and for all and show those who have him on that we will no longer stand  for it.
