Lawrence O'Donnell Blasts Romney, Perkins For Gay Marriage Lies

By: Michael Matson

Thank goodness for President Obama.

The historic announcement Tuesday that he supports same-gender marriage has sparked a national dialogue in the U.S. which is effectively debunking the lies of the antigay conservatives. After Hardball host Chris Matthews and Congressman Barney Frank slaughtered hate group leader Tony Perkins (watch here) for his lies about gay marriage and gay parents Thursday afternoon, Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell delivered the knockout punch to Perkins' bullpucky that evening.

O’Donnell ripped to shreds the right-wing argument that marriage has always been between one man and one woman through a simple review of history, and pointed out that if Perkins—a Christian leader—would just read his Bible, he'd discover multiple references to polygamy (Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Kings, etc.). Mitt Romney should know better than to make the “one man, one woman” argument as well, since his own grandfather had five wives.
