Finally! This just makes my day that a network news show exposes Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council for who and what they are.
Via (appropriately) Crooks And Liars:
During a discussion about marriage equality on Face the Nation, CBS host Bob Schieffer began by noting that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) had determined that Perkins’ organization, the Family Research Council, was a “hate group.”
“The Southern Poverty Law Center has branded the Family Research Council an anti-gay hate group,” Schieffer explained as if it were a warning to his viewers. “We have been inundated by people who say we should not even let you appear because they, in their view — quote — you don’t speak for Christians.”
Following Perkins, Evan Wolfson of Freedom To Marry spoke with Schieffer about the momentum of the marriage equality movement.
It’s reported that Perkins refused to appear face to face with Wolfson, and would only appear “back to back.”
