Perry Compares Anti-LGBT Equality Activists to Abolitionists

According to Rick Perry - "pop culture" LGBT equal rights activists are attempting to tear apart the Boy Scouts of America by advocating for rule changes that would allow openly gay scouts and scout leaders.

Right Wing Watch has posted a video from this Sunday of Rick Perry telling the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins that the Boy Scouts must resist the pressure from LGBT activists - or as he calls them in the video "the flavor of the month."

Perry then goes on to compare conservative anti-LGBT activists fighting to keep the current discriminatory policies to anti-slavery abolitionists during the civil war.
