Megyn Kelly Asks Anti-Gay Hate Group Leader Why Pro-Gay Activists Are So Intolerant
The irony of asking a hate group leader if he’s bothered by the alleged “intolerance” of his critics seems to be lost on Kelly.
Perkins isn’t just an opponent of same-sex marriage - he’s made a career of peddling false and degrading smears about LGBT people, including:
Falsely claiming that gay men are more likely to molest children
Comparing gay activists to terrorists and labeling them pawns of the devil
Applauding Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, calling it an effort “to uphold moral conduct”
Perkinshas repeatedly used discussions about LGBT suicide to score cheap political points, claiming that LGBT teens kill themselves because they know being gay is “abnormal” and that they are “in rebellion to God’s design.” In a letter to supporters, Perkins called the anti-suicide “It Gets Better” project an attempt to “recruit” kids into a “lifestyle” of “perversion.” He’s even blamed high suicide rates in the military on the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
Kelly’s softball segment is the second time five days that she’s attempted to whitewash Perkins’ well-documented history of extreme anti-gay commentary.
