Despite the recent string of court victories in favor of marriage equality, Perkins said “marriage will be an issue” on the campaign trail that “will not go away because it’s rooted in nature.”Gay marriages are here. They have been here--we just weren't recognizing them. Gay people are here. Queer-identified people will be here long after Tony Perkins goes for his dirt-nap. He's denying gravity. But you know what? Religiously-oriented people once denied that the earth revolved around the sun. Then they didn't. Feelings change, because the gravity of some facts, like the necessity of recognizing the dignity of persons, can't be ignored.
“You can act like it’s not there, you can act like gravity doesn’t work, but I’m going to tell you it will catch up with you sooner or later and you are going to hit the ground and culturally we are going to hit the ground by ignoring the realities of marriage,” he said.
Maybe he needs to consider why he got double-teamed over gay marriage on Fox News. Maybe he needs to consider a lot of things. But I see the validity and usefulness of his kind of group evaporating, because they don't really represent such a successful wedge issue anymore and may even do harm to the only party that really tolerated them.
