Perkins is known for being rabidly opposed to marriage equality. He is an avid supporter of a federal constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. He also wants the amendment to repeal all rights given to lesbian and gay couples who are now legally married.
I do not understand why these folks are so opposed to marriage equality. They tout the benefits of marriage yet believe that straight people will stop getting married if lesbians and gay men are allowed to marry. That makes absolutely no sense. Yet, they make the statement with a straight face.
