Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay Christian group Family Research Council, revealed this week that his home and been destroyed in a flood “of near biblical proportions.”
During a Monday broadcast on Family Research Council radio, Perkins called in from Louisiana to explain that he and his family had escaped his flooded home in a canoe.
“This is a flood, I would have to say, of near biblical proportions,” the Christian lobbyist announced.
Perkins said that he and his family were new living off of “God’s provisions,” and had relocated to their RV, which had been spared.
Seriously? Noah gets an entire ark, and Perkins has to make due with a shitty little canoe?
Hardly seems fair.
You know the thing about this that is so irritating is that you KNOW if the Louisiana headquarters for LGBT rights was washed away in a flood that every half baked Christian televangelist in the country would be thrusting their Bibles into the air and declaring that this was proof positive that God wanted to stamp out homosexuality in the world.
But if the house belonging to one of the foremost anti-gay crusaders gets washed away in the flood, the response is "Well shit happens sometimes."
I swear if every religious leader in the country suddenly woke up with leprosy tomorrow they would call it a coincidence and turn the anti-gay rhetoric up to eleven.
