Hate group leader Tony Perkins voices support for Gov. McCrory

Tony Perkins - Family Research Council
Family Research Council (a certified hate group) sent out an email to supporters Monday morning titled “Family Research Council Commends NC Governor for Standing Up to DOJ's Bullying.” According to Tony Perkins, head of FRC:
After nearly eight years of federal overreach, we are seeing state leaders stand up to Barack Obama's effort to fundamentally transform America. I commend Governor McCrory for his political courage and moral clarity in resisting the Obama administration. If the White House can dictate the bathroom policies of America, what could possibly be beyond their reach?
Our system is based on checks and balances. Overreach by the administration is usually corrected by the courts. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia has ruled that the administration is correct in its interpretation of law. North Carolina is in the fourth circuit. Overreach is a product of Mr. Perkins' imagination and his theocratic tendencies.
Governor McCrory has already stared down big business seeking to topple North Carolina law. Now, the governor is making clear he's not going to be intimidated by President Obama's big government either.
I do not think that Perkins should be making a hero out of someone who has already cost the state untold numbers of jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenues. “Not going to be intimidated” easily translates to stupidly stubborn. This entire fiasco is the result of people like Perkins – Christian-First Republicans – in North Carolina who overreacted to Charlotte's protecting about 800 people from discrimination.
The governor rightly asserts that the Obama team can't simply rewrite a 50-year-old law to suit their agenda. Any changes to the law would need to go through the legislative process.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals would disagree.

The bottom line to all of this is that the state is waging a nonsensical war that it has already lost. Perkins is chiming in because that is what Perkins does. The man has direct ties to the Klan and he is a Christian extremist. As such he supports anything that this anti-LGBT.
