Tony Perkins Says He's Teaching His Children Not to Be Gay

By: Michael Matson

Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council—which was classified as a hate group by The Southern Poverty Law Center in 2010, said he doubts any of his children would be gay because he and his wife are "teaching them the right ways." The comment was made during an interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday.

Perkins was on Morgan's show to discuss North Carolina's Amendment One, the voter approved constitutional amendment banning all civil unions other than marriage between opposite-gender couples. Morgan asked Perkins what he would do if one of his five children came to him and informed Perkins that he or she was gay. Perkins full response, at the end of the clip below, was, "I doubt that would happen as we are teaching them the right ways to interact as human beings."
