    Sex columnist Dan Savage lashed out at the Family Research Council saying: “Tony Perkins Sits On A Pile Of Dead Gay Kids Every Day”.
    Savage, who founded the It Gets Better Project for LGBT, spoke last week at Winona State University about “queer kids” killing themselves and said that “every dead kid is a victory for the Family Research Council.”
    He went on to explain why he thinks the Family Research Council is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, saying:
    “Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council — First of all, they tell, Tony Perkins tells parents whose kids come out to reject them. Tony Perkins tells the parents of queer kids to do what Tony Perkins damn well knows drives those kids to suicide — doubles their already quadruple rate of suicide. Why would someone who calls themselves a Christian do that? Because every dead gay kid is a victory for the Family Research Council. They argue that the gay lifestyle is sick and sinful and dangerous and they point to the suicide rate, and then they turn around and do everything in their power to make sure that suicide rate does not come down and to drive it up. Tony Perkins sits on a pile of dead gay kids every day when he goes to work — and he calls himself a Christian. I don’t understand how real Christians let that little fucker get away with that.”

    Sometimes I wish Dan Savage would try to communicate more like a mature adult every now and then.

    "I don’t understand how real Christians let that little fucker get away with that.”

    I actually cried when I read that.

    He is right that homophobia is responsible for suicides.

    "Real Christian" fundamentalists are no worse than Muslim fundamentalists.

    They praise other people's deaths if the dead people don't agree with their religion. To them, we're infidels.

    In fact, if "real Christians" had their way, there would be a law mandating the torture and execution of all gays.
