Tony Perkins Claims LGBT Community will Cause Anti-Christian Holocaust
June 10, 2014 by Hayley Miller, Digital Media Associate
Tony Perkins, president of SPLC-designated hate group the Family Research Council, stated on his radio program that he believes that the LGBT community will cause a holocaust against Christians. Perkins said, “I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”
Perkins was interviewing Nicolle Martin, an attorney for a bakery that was fined for discriminating against LGBT customers in Colorado, when he made the offensive remark. Martin agreed with Perkins stating, “…I guarantee that we are going to continue to see the witch-hunt…”
Perkins, of course, speaks out often against LGBT people: he authored the marriage section of the GOP’s 2012 party platform, has dramatically proclaimed that marriage equality will soon lead to a “revolution” that will “explode and just break this nation apart,” and even supported Ugandan legislation that would subject some LGBT people to prison.
