As someone who identifies as both Christian and gay, I am certainly heartened by this move. It happens far too often that people like Tony Perkins, Peter Sprigg, and many others, are called on by the media to speak for the faithful. They then proceed to spew the kinds of misinformation and discrimination that lands them with a "hate-group" brand. It is far past time that people of faith stand up and say that this is not what we are about, nor is it what our faith is about, nor is it what God is about. God is bout love, compassion, empathy, and understanding, and Tony Perkins speaks against all of this. As such, Tony Perkins DOES NOT speak for us.
MSNBC, you are officially on notice.
