Tony Perkins: ‘Don’t Give a Dime to GOP’ Until It Clarifies Positions

Religious conservatives should cut off all contributions to the Republican Party — until it grows a "backbone" and stops waffling on social issues like gay marriage, a leading conservative Christian group says.

In an email to supporters obtained by CNN, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, slammed the Republican National Committee for its suggestion that the GOP should reconsider its take on same-sex marriage to attract younger voters.

"Until the RNC and the other national Republican organizations grow a backbone and start defending core principles, don’t send them a dime of your hard-earned money," Perkins said.

"If you want to invest in the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who reflect your values and organizations you trust — like FRC Action."

  1. So I guess the 14th amendment's "Equal Protection" clause isn't a core principle worthy of protection to the FRC.

    As long as there are 1100+ Federal benefits that automatically accrue to a married couple, the DOMA is clearly INdefensible.

    Why not remove the benefits, get Government out of the marriage business, and let the individual Churches handle the matter? Or would that make too much sense?

    Maybe when the social conservatives leave the GOP, they can share facilities with the Prohibition Party for conventions, election nights and such...since both will do so well in elections going forward.
