Tony Perkins says evolution doesn’t exist, then uses evolution to prove homosexuality is wrong

Appearing as a guest on the conservative radio show Washington Watch yesterday, Family Research Council head Tony Perkins didn’t seem to appreciate Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s ‘evolution’ on gay marriage – which naturally prompted one listener to call in and remind us that evolution isn’t real anyway.

Appearing as a guest on the conservative radio show Washington Watch yesterday, Family Research Council head Tony Perkins didn’t seem to appreciate Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s ‘evolution’ on gay marriage – which naturally prompted one listener to call in and remind us that evolution isn’t real anyway.

Perkins was in full agreement, saying that the “evidence is overwhelming” that the theory of evolution is a fraud – but then seemed to use it as a means to discredit the natural existence of homosexuality, saying that Hillary and Obama should oppose gay rights if “we are constantly in this state of evolution.”

If you logically game this out, the idea that somehow same-sex marriage or same-sex attraction, homosexuality, could be the advancement of evolution, well, it would be the end of the road. It is a dead-end street. You’re certainly not going to reproduce.

    Aside from being stupid, he is also WRONG. The entire species, as a group living, social species, benefits from having non-breeding or seldom breeding able bodies couples. What happens when a parent does unexpectedly otherwise? Who will care for the young when an extra fertile couple have to many? It’s the entire reason females go through the menopause. Why not have it extend further? Gay couples make excellent parents. And even our most ancient ancestors had need of adoptive parents.

    Good point. This guy Perkins really shouldn’t come to a battle of wits. He’s unarmed. By his reasoning, colonies of social insects where only a single female breeds and the males are treated as sperm donors should have died out long ago. I guess they didn’t get the memo. What a moron.
