Tony Perkins: Marriage Rulings Ignore 'Future Well-Being of Society'

The nation stands to lose its moral ground now that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, according to Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.

"People are beginning to realize there's a lot more to this than just two people who love each other," Perkins told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We're talking about all of Americans being affected where parents are losing the right to determine whose moral values their children are taught, whose values they're getting."

The court on Wednesday empowered gay rights advocates by striking down DOMA and recognizing that married gay men and women are eligible for federal benefits — paving the way for same-sex marriage in California.

The court did not take into account "the future well-being of society," which depends upon marriage, family, and children having "the benefit of a mom and dad," he said.
Perkins is disturbed by the "demonizing" of groups opposed to gay marriage as bigots.

"We're not on the wrong side of history and I'll stick with what human history has says works," Perkins said.

"And that is that kids need a mom and a dad."

The mission of the Family Research Council is to "advance faith, family, and freedom in public policy and the culture from a Christian worldview."
