After Sen. Rand Paul made an offensive (and unfunny) joke involving the word "gay," Tony Perkins (of the Family Research Council) criticized him:
I don’t think it's something we should joke about. We are talking about individuals who feel very strongly one way or the other, and I think we should be civil, respectful, allowing all sides to have the debate.
The Pentagon included Bible verses on the covers of confidential reports at the start of the Iraq war, featuring photos of soldiers and quotes about putting on “the full armor of God” and seeking divine help, according to GQ magazine.
Tony Perkins sits in a state-of-the art studio at the Family Research Council’s headquarters in Washington, firing questions at new Louisiana Senator David Vitter for a weekly radio show broadcast over 150 stations nationwide.
