Dan Savage had some, er, choice words for Family Research Council President Tony Perkins during a speaking engagement at Winona State University last week:
Tony Perkins tells parents whose kids come out to reject them.Now the video is making the rounds, but Savage doubled down via Twitter: "I'm Dan Savage and I approved -- and stand by -- this message." (Not Safe For Work -- language.)
Tony Perkins tells the parents of queer kids to do what Tony Perkins damn well knows drives those kids to suicide — doubles their already quadruple rate of suicide. Why would someone who calls themselves a Christian do that? Because every dead gay kid is a victory for the Family Research Council. ...
Tony Perkins sits on a pile of dead gay kids every day when he goes to work — and he calls himself a Christian. I don't understand how real Christians let that little f--ker get away with that.
