HER- The Louisiana flooding has been devastating to tens of thousands of homes. And while the situation is absolutely tragic, one piece of news has brought a (guilty) smile to a lot of people's faces.
Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay Christian group Family Research Council, had previously said that the 2005 Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans because God wanted to stop a Gay Pride parade.
He also recently made headlines for promoting anti-gay conversion therapy, and even compared same-sex marriage to man-horse marriage.
Well, it turns out Perkins' own home was destroyed in the Louisiana floods, describing the damage as of a "biblical proportion", according to Metro.
Gee, really painted yourself into a corner with that, eh Tony? So what will it be, retract your ridiculously nonsensical words or retract your heterosexuality? There's only two ways out of this and no matter which one you pick you're more than likely going to end up drowning in due criticism.
Honestly though, I am not that upset by Tony Perkins making an absolutely ludicrous claim that homosexuals are responsible for treacherous weather. It's his job as an overly conservative Bible thumper to expound on paraphrased verses that were written thousands of years ago and twist them in such a way that they sound even more critical of all that he personally deems unholy. It's not the most commendable career path, but I can appreciate it because - in an ass backwards way - it makes all of us that believe in equal rights look even more sane. That's why my biggest problem with Tony isn't the position he took, but how poorly he fulfilled it's duties.
He could have tried to pin a laundry list of natural disasters on gays and - as a Louisiana resident - he chose FLOODS!?! What kind of cocky son of bitch lives on the Gulf Coast and stakes the sexuality he apparently holds so dearly on an environmental catastrophe for which his hometown is unfortunately known? Almost makes me believe that he knew his home was at risk and this is just the most elaborate unveiling in history. Anyone that hates gay people with such an irrational passion almost has to be a self loathing homosexual! He just knew he needed the right circumstances to get him out of the closet. Turns out those circumstances were potentially being held under water until the bubbles stopped reaching the surface. Tony Perkins is as gay as the day is long. As fruity as an apple pie eaten off a man's freshly shaven chest. If he wasn't he would have blamed the LGBT community for blizzards or some other type of inclement weather that he would have never been exposed to in the South. His decision to go with floods was just postponing the inevitable like when I refuse to take my clothes out of the dryer until I run out of clean boxers.
