Tony Perkins is pissed because someone decided to host a religious event without inviting him. Boo hoo.

CNN’s “Compassion Forum”, held this past Sunday, allowed both Democratic candidates to answer questions about their faith that, thankfully, didn’t come from Christofascist asshats like Perkins.

As a result, the forum focused on issues that real Christians should care about. Things like poverty, human rights and the worldwide AIDS crisis.

According to Perkins, these are not the issues closest to Christians’ hearts.

Instead, Tony claims that: “our priority as Christians should be as those of the Founding Fathers; protect the sanctity of human life, preserve marriage, and defend religious liberty.”

In other words: take away reproductive rights from women, prevent gay people from getting married, and prevent hate crimes legislation and equal rights laws that protect americans based on their sexual orientation.

Listen up, shitbird! None of these things was mentioned by our founding founders.

And, for that matter, none of them was mentioned by Jesus either.

Poverty and Human Rights, however, were.

  • I was going to comment on the substance of this post but got distracted by “Listen up, shitbird!”. LOL!

    EOM

  • One of the many benefits of being a blogger instead of a boring old reporter: I can give my opinion AND call people names.

    Still- I think it’s an important debate that needs to happen.

    Hate and fear are NOT the foundation of Christ’s teachings- but that’s exactly what so-called Christian leaders like Perkins are pushing with their rightwing agenda.

  • Agreed on all accounts…

    shitbird. lol. 😉

    Brilliant. I, too, particularly enjoyed the use of the word “shitbird.”
