Bizarro World: Tony Perkins Complains That Liberals Want A Religion Based Government

Bizarro World: Tony Perkins Complains That Liberals Want A Religion Based Government

Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, says it is liberals that want to establish a religion based government. That’s right. The leader of the right-wing self-righteous wants you, and his congregation, to believe that those who don’t believe in God, or do so in moderation, want a government based on scripture. How else could he keep his righteous indignation? Perkins appeared on the Janet Mefferd Show on Tuesday. A Christian radio broadcast. Where they discussed an article published by the Religion News Service titled, “Government shutdown may drive more young Christians from GOP,”.
“What is that saying? Is that saying then that the government has a responsibility to care for the poor?” Perkins asked. “That’s not what the Scripture says.”
Tony Perkins said the Bible makes clear that Christians were expected to care for the needy, but not the government. Liberals, Mr. Perkins, believe all life is precious and deserves to be protected and treated with dignity. Religion has nothing to do with it.

Tony Perkins says, “As Christians, we’re responsible for the policies of this government because it’s us.”

Pretzel logic at its most transparent. Tony Perkins. Who does this guy think he’s fooling? Maybe his lemming-like followers will buy into whatever he has to say, but no one thinking for themselves could believe such a farcical proposition. Remember, Tony Perkins is the same guy that said there was, “nothing more Christian” than cutting millions off of food stamp assistance. He, and others, use a piece of scripture completely out of context as justification to say, if you don’t work, you don’t eat.
Here, he refutes his own point. Government has no role in helping poor. Only Christians have this responsibility. BUT, “As Christians we’re responsible for the policies of this government because it’s us.” While attempting to spin you he spun himself. So which is it Tony? Christians help the poor and the government stays out of it? Or, the government helps the poor and Christians stay out of government?
I like the idea of our nation’s framers. We will help those in need, regardless of race, religion or creed. And personal religion has no place in political policy. That allows intelligent men and women to govern while still following their own personal faith.

Tony Perkins is a cult leader for cash.

Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council want to transform this country into their view of a Christian society. They manipulate scripture for their own gain while trying to convince their followers that their interpretation is what God intended.
Tony Perkins manipulates the Bible. He distorts what many consider holy. He uses people trying to live an honest god-fearing life as his personal fund-raising institution to pursue political goals. Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council operate a political action committee, FRC Action, in conjunction with the Duggar Family. You know, ‘the 19 kids and counting’ crew. They are the antithesis of Christian values. Regardless of how they portray themselves.
Keep this in mind. We live in a country that separates church and state. There are no blurred lines here. Our founders made sure to write clearly that we all have freedom of religion. Even, and especially, if that religion is different from the majority or is no religion at all. We are not a Christian founded country. Tony Perkins, the FRC, Bachmann, Palin, the Tea Party all try to skew the Constitution to make it mean what they want. But even Justice Scalia knows, that is never going to happen. Politics is not allowed in churches. The church has no place in government. When you see it, your responsibility is to report it and stomp it out. Whether you believe in God or not.

Religion is not the problem. The self-righteous are the problem with religion.

Tony Perkins and his kind are offensive. They prey upon the meek. They manipulate those easily led. They have grand delusions of a nation where they are all powerful. Make no mistake, they will do whatever they can to achieve their vision of Utopia.  Well, Tony Perkins, I have but one thing to say to you and your kind. By your own beliefs, I am a child of God. God acts and speaks through me. God told me to write this. And I say to you: You are a biblical heretic. You are a blasphemer.  And I GOTCHA!
