Tony Perkins: Stop donating to the GOP!
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins is urging activists to stop donating money to the GOP, escalating the ongoing war between social conservatives and the mainline Republican Party.
"Until the RNC and the other national Republican organizations grow a backbone and start defending core principles, don’t send them a dime of your hard-earned money," Perkins said in the email to supporters obtained by CNN. "If you want to invest in the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who reflect your values and organizations you trust-like FRC Action."
The Republican National Committee is this week meting in California, where the Christian-right hopes it will adopt a resolution affirming their opposition to marriage equality. Perkins and a dozen other social conservative leaders wrote a strongly worded letter to committee members yesterday warning that if they do not adopt the resolution, it "will necessarily result in the abandonment of our constituents'" support for GOP candidates.
