Tony Perkins Rips Pelosi On DOMA

"Proving once again why she is former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader wagged her finger at Republicans for 'standing up for a discriminatory law' and 'failing to focus on jobs and the economy.' 'This action,' she said, 'places Republicans squarely on the wrong side of history and progress. This is nothing more than a distraction from our most pressing challenges.'

"First of all, the foundation of civil society is not a 'distraction.' Secondly, conservatives didn't pick this fight--the President and his liberal allies did. Yet ours is the movement that's constantly criticized for bringing up wedge issues. If you ask me, the Left is the side obsessed with social change. Americans wouldn't even be discussing this if the White House had maintained the status quo. As for being on the 'wrong side of progress,' that's the same argument people used to push no-fault divorce 40 years ago. Unfortunately, the country found out too late that it wasn't 'progress' nfor children or society." - Family Research Council spokesbigot Tony Perkins, via press release.
