Tony Perkins, head of the hate group Family Research Council, was soundly spanked last night on Hardball by the Southern Poverty Law Center. They were discussing why the FRC has been labeled a hate group and Perkins tries some desperate moves, including fake poll numbers.

Make sure you notice that Perkins uses some fake numbers to back up his claim that homos=pedophiles. His research is based off of the group “The American College of Pediatricians,” but unfortunately for Mr. Perkins, it’s a completely fake group. ACP has an impressive name, but it was revealed months ago to be made up of ancient southern male doctors who are all associated with NARTH, Focus On The Family and the Liberty Counsel. Fake group, fake numbers, fake claims.

  1. Steve says:

    He also clompletely misrepresented the survey taken among servicemen. Point of fact is that 70% of servicemen responded that they thought it would be either positive or make no difference to repeal DADT. These people are unbelieveable
