Tony Perkins: "In a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists.”
Come quick! While conditions continue to improve for gay humans on our own planet, Tony Perkins, dutiful bigot and President of the Family Research Council, has started to explore an entirely unknown frontier of nonsense. And this time, it’s pixilated and inter-galactic.
It all went down right after Canadian video game developer, BioWare, announced that it will soon give LGBT gamers the option to pursue same-sex relationships in the new video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, a move that has angered social conservatives everywhere. And guess who decided to "show companies who the Force was really with?" Hint: He recently hosted a radio segment called “Rebel Fleet surrenders to Gay Empire?” Listen to this:
"In a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. In a galaxy not so far far away, Star Wars gamers have already gone to the dark side. The new video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has added a special feature: gay relationships. Bioware, the company that developed the game, said it's launching a same-sex romance component to satisfy some complaints.” – Tony Perkins (via Towleroad).
But no matter what Perkins says, one question always remains constant: Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him? Obi Wan Kenobi, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
