Fun with Fundamentalist gay double-entendres

News & Politics

The Revealer has a little fun with Tony Perkins' Family Research Center, which it calls "Sinn Fein to James Dobson's figurative IRA."

In a press release response to a PFLAG (Parents, Friends, and Families of Lesbians and Gays) press release on the buying power of gays, Tony Perkins appears to positively writhe around in sexual wordplay. I mean, he doesn't just rub up against it, he's...

On claims that LGBT buying power will reach $1 trillion by 2012, Perkins snapped his fingers in an arc and wrote: "Homosexuals are known for exaggerating their numbers. But what really stands out is their desire to have it both ways."

You go girl.

The "both ways," is being both an "economic powerhouse" and an oppressed minority. Only if you're bad at math, Mr. President.

On the New York Stock Exchange's invitation to have the closing bell rung by PFLAG, Perkins bit his lip and lisped: "Some of these pro-homosexual companies may soon have their bell rung by [tens of millions of Christians]..."

The Revealer, with an extra helping of sauce, writes:

"You got that, nancy-boys? Tony Perkins wants to ring your bells. He may not be able to perform as fully as he'd like, however. Perkins goes on to claim that 83% of Americans are Christians, and thus, apparently, as obsessed with gay sex as he is. Sure, Tony. Over the internet, you can say you're as big as you want to."
This whole, er, back and forth, comes in response to the uplifting report that 86% of Fortune 500 companies include gays in their nondiscrimination policies, a 1000% increase in five years. Corporate America may be valuesless, but its capitalistic tendencies are doing better than our government in preserving civil liberties... Never thought I'd say that. (Revealer)
