In today’s special installment of Anti-Gay Bigots and Religious Morons Twofer Tuesday.
Family Research Council President and white supremacist organization linked Tony Perkins claims that straight soldiers are being discriminated against by the U.S. military because gay service members who want to marry are getting paid leave so they can travel to a state where it’s legal to do so. Perky whines that straight soldiers don’t get the same benefits.
For our troops, marriage is becoming the biggest battlefield.
Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington.
Thanks to the Pentagon, taxpayers are giving gay service members quite a wedding gift. According to the Defense Department, homosexual troops are getting some extra incentives to get hitched–including 10 days of bonus leave. The AP says gay and lesbian military members will get as many as two weeks of extra vacation time to travel to states that allow same-sex marriage. Meanwhile, the Defense Department says it “remains committed to ensuring that all men and women who service in the U.S. military… are treated fairly.” If that were true, heterosexual couples would be getting the same benefits. See, this special, taxpayer-funded leave isn’t just expensive–it’s discriminatory. According to the Pentagon, heterosexual couples aren’t eligible. How’s that for equality? The administration says this perk “level[s] the playing field between opposite-sex and same-sex couples.” But when it comes to extra vacation days, the only thing the military is taking leave of is their senses!
Of course, Princess Tiny Meat Perkins ignores the fact that his battle against allowing gays to marry in all 50 states led to this “discriminatory” situation.

Well, if we didn’t have to go to a different fucking state to get married, this wouldn’t be an issue
I would have to agree. Anyway you look at it, if one group of people are getting “more” benefits or are being treated better, that is discrimination. Homo or not, everybody should get the same benefits.
Great then that means gay ppl should be able to marry in every state. Until then they don;t have the same privleges
Well, his assumption that hetero soldiers would be discriminated against because they would not be allowed to travel extra to marry would be solved soon enough… when creeps like him would stop fighting equal marriage… then homosexual soldiers would simply stay in the state their base is in, and marry there!
Ergo… mister creep from the FRC is countering productive to and lying about his own statement… he himself is enforcing and endorsing the assumed discrimination against hetero soldiers… when he would force the state the hetero soldiers are based in to acknowledge and recognize equal marriage the hetero soldiers would have the same benefits as the homosexual soldiers….
HE is the racist, the social and mental rapist of hetero soldiers, were he is the one who forces the homosexual soldiers to leave the anti-equal marriage states to enjoy marriage and thus be able to enjoy the rightfully the federal marriage benefits!
He deprives the hetero soldiers from the joy of an out-of-state honeymoon, and the enjoyment of inter-state traveling!
Hetero soldiers should force this creep out of the county, perhaps by putting him on a plane to Saudi Arabia, or Iraq, and submit him to sharia law!
