Tony Perkins Slams DNC For Booing God: 'I Recall In History Where There Was Someone Else Who Denied God Three Times




Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council in Washington DC, spoke candidly to TheBlaze Tuesday afternoon about his feelings toward the highly controversial platform decisions of the DNC Convention.

As TheBlaze formerly reported,

With heavy booing from dissenters, the Democratic National Convention voted Wednesday to reinstate language supporting Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to restore a reference to God in its party platform.  DNC Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa conducted a voice vote of the delegates on the proposed platform changes, asking for yeses and nos three times because of how similar the responses sounded. A two-thirds vote was required to adopt the change. Despite clear opposition, Villaraigosa declared the amendment had passed, prompting loud booing.

Perkins assailed the odd move and the controversy with a biblical reference.

Perkins quoted a friend who was at the convention and said "clearly they didn't get the three quarters vote" needed to put God back into the platform. He continued, "I recall in history where there was someone else who denied God three times, the Son of God, before a rooster crowed."  Perkins was obviously referring to the scripture out of the Gospel of Matthew where it talks about Peter's denial:

Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, Peter -- this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me."

--Matthew 26:34

Perkins noted the decision shows where the Democratic party stands on a fundamental issue for Americans.  Perkins was alarmed at the bluntness with which the DNC platform included abortion and gay marriage in their platform as well.

"The Democratic party is for unlimited taxpayer-funded abortion," he said, adding that "they want other Americans to be forced to pay to end human life."   Perkins called the entire DNC platform "Troubling."
