Perkins: Americans will never accept gay marriage because it ‘violates reason, natural law’

Recently, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and Maryland Bishop Harry Jackson sat down for a half-hour interview with CBN’s David Brody to discuss President Obama’s support for marriage equality and what it will mean for the 2012 election.

Brody has posted the entire interview on his blog, in which Perkins compared the issue of gay marriage to the issue of abortion, declaring that Americans will never accept the legitimacy of gay marriage, regardless of what the courts rule, because “same-sex marriage violates reason and natural law” and warning that any Supreme Court ruling upholding the legality of gay marriage will “create great unrest in this society”

For his part, Jackson saw the President’s statement as an opportunity to create a new “Black-Brown coalition” among African Americans and Hispanics rooted in opposition to the Democratic Party’s growing support for gay rights and fueled by resentment against gay activists who are trying to push minorities to the back of the line.

Jackson said comparisons between the push for gay rights and the struggle for civil rights are nonsense because systematic discrimination and violence against the gay community “never happened” and warned that if African Americans and Hispanics don’t escape the “Democratic Party plantation,” then “America’s best days are over”:
