Tony Perkins Misrepresents the Truth...Again

...On Sunday, during Seattle’s Pride festivities, a reportedly “straight, married, multiple felon,” who, according to news reports is named Jason Queree, was arrested after he apparently attacked a street preacher who was holding a large sign that read, “Repent or Else” and “Jesus Saves from Sin.” Queree reportedly has “been arrested 29 times since 1995,” and “convicted or otherwise found against for nine felonies, including forgery, stolen property, unlawful firearm possession and theft, and 12 misdemeanors, including driving with a suspended license, vehicle prowl, domestic violence, assault, DUI and criminal trespass.” 
So of course, Tony Perkins sends out his daily hate-the-gays email that’s also published on the Family Research Council’s website. It reads:
The ugly side of “tolerance” was on full display last weekend in Seattle when a mob at the city’s “gay pride” event ganged up on two Christian street preachers and brutally attacked them.
The entire confrontation was caught on video and posted to YouTube by an attendee who said that he disagreed with the street preachers but believe they have “a constitutional right to be in public and preach.” As FRC knows all too well, this isn’t the first time homosexual activists have used violence to try to silence and intimidate Christians. Apart from the August 15 shooting in our lobby, marriage supporters across the country have been assaulted, threatened, and vandalized. The other side has even resorted to death threats for children! It’s time for Americans to wake up and realize the Left’s unwillingness to practice the very “tolerance” they preach — before more people get hurt. [Bolding ours]
For the record, the violence at Seattle Pride was unacceptable, and violence should never be considered acceptable. But let’s get our facts straight when pointing fingers — something Perkins is not expert at...
Tony Perkins has shown time and time again that he has problems with facts and reality, so what has happened in this particular case is unfortunately par for the course. Either he is purposefully misrepresenting the facts and lying to the public, or he is not doing his due diligence and seeking out the truth (my guess is the former). In either case he has shown himself to be utterly untrustworthy, and that he does what he does "in the name of God" just makes his actions exponentially more disgusting.
