    Tony Perkins will have to live with those words the rest of his life and will end his life. When he dies, his ridiculous words will be mentioned in every news story about his death.

    Maybe Tony and Clay Aiken can work out a deal. If Tony Perkins stops fighting against gay rights, Clay Aiken will stop singing. A win for us all.

    Wasn't Tony Perkins the guy who played Norman Bates? And wasn't he gay? And isn't he already dead?

    Clay Aiken has the Right Idea imho. Bring OUR Rights into the family circle. Make it a norm now, be like those who shame us for being born this way, and shame them for being so blind.

    I don't know how Barney Frank got through that debate without having a stroke. Wow. Is it possible to be a bigger douche bag than Tony Perkins?

    THE Tony Perkins: yes, yes, and unfortunately, yes. He was great in several movies -- my favorite was "Green Mansions."

    Never heard of the apparent jerk Tony Perkins -- who's he?

    From the article linked in the OP:

    Gay country music star Clay Aiken on Sunday told the leader of a Christian think tank that he would eventually be “ashamed” over his opposition to rights for LGBT Americans.

    During a discussion about President Obama’s support of same sex marriage, Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins explained that “civil rights are rooted in natural law: Americans just don’t see same sex marriage as being natural.”
