  1. It was Don’t Ask Don’t Tell which was Social Engineering.

  2. The volume of the drivel coming out of this arsehole is what’s “unbelievable, unbelievable.”

      I was about to make a comment similar to yours – except pointing out the irony that his (over)use of that word was the only believable statement he made.

  3. A grifter who is paid a six figure salary from his hate factory NPO and has a vested personal financial interest in making sure his brand of hate stays legal and socially acceptable.

    He lies for money, nothing more.

  4. I wonder exactly how much d**k this guy has had?

    Mr. Perkins…please, please do your homework on this subject. Seems you have so many things incorrect.
    You are truly dumber than you look.

    That is one of the most idiotic, irrational,illogical statements this man has ever made! I think he is so intoxicated on religion that he is clueless and disconnected with reality.

    Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel…where in the F*** did they come up with this f****** arsewipe…to call him just stupid would require a whole new definition in the dictionary…what stupid idiot could ever even listen to anything came from his filty sh***y mouth….what an insult to Christianity???Really making me sick to the stomach to know that piece of S*** even allowed to breathe in air…should be stopped not fair to ordinary people to allow him oxygen…

    1. Has he said something to upset you…

  8. Th real reason for the rise in suicides in the military is the stress caused by too many assignments in Iraq/Afghanistan

  9. What’s so infuriating is that these people can ignore or distort or misinterpret all the evidence they want safe in the knowledge that those to whom they speak haven’t the slightest interest in it. Bigots speak sweetly to bigots.

  10. Of course the suicide rate is nothing to do with the stress of being in combat, losing friends in battle, living in a Hell-hole away from loved ones for months, being treated like cr@p when you return home. No it’s the Gays.

    No. Nope. Sorry. I don’t believe for a minute that even *he* believes this one himself.

    Now he really is just saying any-old-shít he can think up to keep those donations coming!

  12. These religious people do nothing but blame other people. They have no faults — it’s always the OTHER person who is at fault. And gays are their favourite target!!

  13. The reason these soldiers kill themselves is because they’re brainwashed by the bull5hit macho American culture into thinking they’ll be heroes if they sign up. They get about half the training of British soldiers and their tours last twice as long. Many can’t handle what they see and do over in Afghanistan.

  14. Oh.. come on Mr. Perkins lets put it in perspective!

    How man of these suicides were because of Post Traumatic Distress, dismemberment, disability and related anguish, mental and other related concerns to the military.

    How many suicides have been prevented or bigots silenced since DADT

    Suicide has long been a factor in the military and veterans, more so with Vietnam veterans! Long before DADT!

    Give some before and after figures for people to review. Give us a chance to see if the number of LGB suicides have actually dropped since the repeal of DADT

  15. Have you noticed, How its always the right wing, who ‘s civil rights are being destroyed by all us queers just because we want things they think only they should have?

  16. I agree with him. Working with men who like men rather than women is just crazy. Who wouldnt top themselves because of that?!

  17. So just so I understand this correctly, Tony Perkins is implying that the trauma of just sharing the same mess tent as gay personnel is enough to push a subset of military bigots over the edge?
    I presume he has the multiple suicide notes to back up this sweeping assertion then and he’s not just scraping the barrel looking for stats to cater to his prejudices.
    Someone needs to explain to him the difference between corellation and causation, though I’m going to go with my first guess that he’s a disingenuous arsewipe.

  18. Usual psycho evantelist He is also a pal of the kluxers
