Dan Savage has a Message for Tony Perkins

I'll see you in court.

Dan Savage made some waves in September when he said this about the Family Research Council in a talk at Winona State University:

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.

Tony Perkins and his braindead followers reacted the same way right wing nutjobs react when faced with the truth -- the run to Fox News to play the victim card. In this case, Tony went on Huckabee and suggested that he might sue Dan Savage for saying mean things about him. Dan responds in the video below.

money drives it all

there are enough suckers, Perkins thinks, who'll send him money if he's as mean as he can possibly be. Does he believe anything he says? I don't know but I would think it's way down his list, the list that starts out "1. get lots of money".

I don't always like Dan Savage.

(It's a long story that goes back to his days when he was just a guy in Seattle who wrote a sex-advice column in The Stranger, and he wrote a few things that I found pretty objectionable.)

But when he's doing it right, he does it really right.  This is one of those times.

I predict that one of two things will happen:  1) Tony Perkins will sit down and shut up but quick, or 2) Tony Perkins will keep going on his anti-gay crusade while desperately trying to pretend that Dan Savage does not exist - which Dan Savage will never allow him to get away with.

I'm kinda hoping for the second option.  It'll be a lot more fun to watch.
