The Height of Stupidity: Gay People Posting Photos Of Gay People On Facebook Is Christian Persecution

Okay, so we all know that Tony Perkins, the wingnutted, asshatted, goose-stepping president of the anti-LGBT hate group the Family Research Council [FRC] is a loon, right?

Well, last week on his little radio hatefest he tried to calm down an irate caller who had seen a photo of "two naked guys sitting on each other" on Facebook., Now, rather than simply clicking the ‘Hide’ feature, or simply deciding to unfriend, or unfollow, the person responsible for The Gay Photo, the caller told Perkins he reported the photo to Facebook "in a nice, respectful Christian way."

Of course, Tony Perkins responded with:
"Jesus said that we are to pray for our enemies, for those who persecute us, that would be those who mock and ridicule us, absolutely we should pray for them. … This is being shoved into people’s faces, and if, like you, they say, I don’t want this on my Facebook page, I don’t want this, I don’t want to see this, look, do whatever you want to do but don’t involve me in that – that’s not good enough, there’s this effort of forced acceptance and affirmation, and we just can’t do that."
See, putting a photo on Facebook of a gay couple, or just a gay person, is Christian persecution. My wedding picture with Carlos is persecuting the Christians. Any gay person’s new photo is an attack on religion if posted to Facebook.

Perkins went on to call the posting of ‘gay pictures’ — though he never did detail exactly what a ‘gay picture’ was — as a "lack of tolerance" from gay people though he has no problem with Bible thumpers putting their Jesus pictures everywhere. I find it the height of stupidity that Tony Perkins says posting a picture on Facebook is persecution of Christians, when Perkins has said, of The Gays:
“They are intolerant. They are hateful. They are vile. They are spiteful
He also said that LGBT activists are going to "start rolling out the boxcars" and carting away Christians a la the Holocaust.
He’s said that pedophilia is “a homosexual problem” and has used the FRC to distribute a pamphlet that claims gay men are more likely to molest children.
Funny, that he calls The Gays murderers and pedophiles, and even like the Nazis, but it's The Gays that are doing all the persecuting because we put our pictures on Facebook.

Sit down Tony. And stop looking at ‘gay’ pictures on Facebook. There are whole websites devoted to that and, besides, everyone knows that Facebook is for Cat Videos and pictures of what you had for dinner last night and vaguely passive-aggressive status updates.

Sit down, and be quiet.

Whoa! Christians have certainly become the wilting delicate flower since they were a popular draw in the Colosseum! If a picture can cause a fit of the vapors, they might as well stay home, in a darkened room with a cool cloth on their foreheads. Lordy! Can you imagine what would have happened if they such a vision in real life!

Why can't these Christians do what the rest of us do and not look at Facebook? Simple, problem solved!
