Tony Perkins: ‘This Is Not a Time to Stand on the Sidelines’
Tony Perkins gets indignant when he thinks about Christians refusing
to vote for either of the two major party presidential candidates
because they believe both are undesirable.
“I want to go into some of our churches and overturn a few tables
because we probably had the best selection of primary candidates in the
history of presidential politics,” said Perkins, president of the Family
Research Council. “Half of them were born-again, Bible-believing,
“But many people didn’t get involved in those primaries and sat back
to see what would happen, so the conservative vote got chopped up and
split in many different directions. I don’t think they have a lot of
room to complain when the choices for the general election are not the
best ones. I’m not sympathetic, and it doesn’t absolve us from the
obligation we have to vote. It’s part of being salt and light.”
