Hate Group Head Tony Perkins Whines More About Being Head Of A Hate Group

"Yesterday, to try and legitimize their smear campaign, SPLC held an audio webcast focused almost entirely on FRC. Among other things, they backpedaled from the notion that FRC belongs in the same category as the KKK, agreeing that we are 'the most mainstream of the organizations' SPLC has ever criticized. Richard Cohen, SPLC's President, revealed what this whole attack on FRC was really about. 'We don't believe that some of these people should be put on national TV.'

"According to Cohen, FRC's position on marriage should disqualify us from any media appearances. (Is it really our position on marriage or that the facts are just not on their side?) Even Tom Brokaw, who is unapologetically liberal, told a gay newspaper this week, 'I don't think you can shut down free speech." Asked how to deal with pro-family groups, Brokaw said, "We're a free speech society. They're entitled to their positions.... How do you begin to censor things?' Easy, says SPLC. Start 'inoculating the public against FRC's propaganda.' In other words, do everything possible to keep the public from hearing FRC's rational arguments." - Family Research Council head bigot Tony Perkins.

These hate groups sure are devoting a lot of time and effort into complaining about something which they claim is a badge of honor!
