|Ken Blackwell and Tony Perkins... Can't you just feel their god's love in their words?|
Where to start... Let's go with Kenneth first.
Does anyone remember Kenneth Blackwell. I do.
You may remember Kenny as the former mayor of Cincinnati or the former Ohio State Treasurer or the former Ohio Secretary of State or even a failed-U.S. Senate candidate.
I mostly remember Blackwell from 2004 when he was the Chief Elections Officer who oversaw Ohio's elections process debacle in which he was accused of disenfranchising minority voters as well as being involved in the Diebold Election Systems' scandal. Many believe both of these incidents were undertaken by Blackwell in order to sway the election in favor of George W. Bush. Blackwell then refused to comply with the ensuing investigations into his actions leading him to be drummed out of politics.
So where does a washed up disgraced Republican politician go when all his options have run dry? He takes up residence as a scholar at the infamous conservative Christian lobbying organization the "Family Research Council".
So, like I said, it was while appearing on FRC’s radio show “Washington Watch,” that Blackwell blamed the “crumbling of the moral foundation of the country” and the “attack on natural marriage and the family.” for the deadly rampage saying...
“The teaching of sexual roles and the development of human sexuality in our culture when these fundamental institutions are attacked and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing, and that is a flood of disturbed people in our society that are causing great pain.”
He went on to say...
“When these fundamental institutions are attacked (i.e. "traditional marriage") and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing,”
You can listen to Ken blame gay marriage for the heinous acts of a lone lunatic here...
Now let's get to Tony shall we...
Perkins was previously a police officer who was forced to resign, a television reporter for a local right-wing station, a two term Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and a unsuccessful U.S. Senate candidate in 2002.
So where does a disgraced cop, TV reporter and washed up Republican politician go when all his options have run dry? He takes up residence as the president of the infamous conservative Christian lobbying organization the "Family Research Council".
Back to our story... So not to be outdone by Blackwell, later on his own show, Perkins shared some additional thoughts about what he believed to be the true reasons for the spree killings:
"It doesn’t really have anything to do with sexism or the assumption that women exist to fulfill men’s sexual desire. Rather, it’s a result of Hollywood, which partakes of the same culture of instant gratification that makes people assume they “deserve” sex or affordable medical treatment whenever they want it. Nothing is being said about how Hollywood has sexualized everything where it’s almost like Obamacare, you have a right to healthcare, you have a right to sexual gratification, almost.”
Yeah he went there! You can listen to Tony blame Obamacare for the disturbed actions of one mentally unbalanced individual here...
You can't make this stuff up folks!
