SCOTUS, Tony Perkins, and Gay Marriage

Referring readers to yet another article that rankles my bones …

Quote by Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council:

“The court is not going to settle this issue. In fact, I think it does a disservice to both sides if the court weighs in on public policy like this,” said Perkins on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “The courts are designed to interpret the constitution and the constitutionality of the laws, not create public policy. When they do that, they create division and they erect barriers to reaching consensus on public policy like this.”

He’s talking about the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision on the gay marriage issue.

I can’t help but wonder if SCOTUS was considering the establishment of prayer and bible reading in public schools if Perkins would consider it a “disservice” for them to weigh in on “public policy.”

  1. After its decision on gay marriage, perhaps the Supreme Court can determine just how big of a dickhead Tony Perkins really is and whether or not it would be against the constitution to encourage folks to pelt him with rotten fruit whenever he showed his face in public.

  2. Hey Nan, great post and I think you are absolutely correct. If he thought for a moment that the Supreme court would overturn “Roe v. Wade” then he’d be all about it!
