Tony Perkins Wants Ban on Day of Silence

So the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins wants a ban on the Day of Silence protest, a day when students in many schools remain silent to draw attention to anti-gay bias and bullying.  Considering Perkins and his organization are recognized hate groups it is amazing they still get the press they do.

What if the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan made a similar statement about the observation of Black History Month.  Would the press even bother to mention it?  No they wouldn't and I can say that because the delightful folks at the KKK have made similar protests in the past and only get coverage if they show up in their lovely white outfits.

It's time the press stopped using its double standard of reporting every word groups against LGBT causes say, but ignoring other hate groups.  Let's press the press to start ignoring these yokels and get back to reporting real news.
