Fox Hosts Anti-Gay Hate Group Leader

Fox's Megyn Kelly opened the February 26 edition of her show with a segment on Brewer's veto that featured Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay Family Research Council.

Perkins isn't just an opponent of same-sex marriage-- his organization, the FRC, is a designated hate group, and he's made a career of peddling false and degrading smears about LGBT people, including:

Falsely claiming that gay men are more likely to molest children

Comparing gay activists to terrorists and labeling them pawns of the devil

Applauding Uganda's "Kill the Gays" bill, calling it an effort "to uphold moral conduct"

Perkins has repeatedly used discussions about LGBT suicide to score cheap political points, claiming that LGBT teens kill themselves because they know being gay is "abnormal" and that they are "in rebellion to God's design." In a letter to supporters, Perkins called the anti-suicide "It Gets Better" project an attempt to "recruit" kids into a "lifestyle" of "perversion." He's even blamed high suicide rates in the military on the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
