Still reeling from the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said on his radio show recently that the U.S. will no longer receive God’s blessing.
When a caller, Hector, told Perkins that he no longer likes to hear the phrase “God bless America” now that the Supreme Court has struck down bans on gay marriage, Perkins responded that “it’s hard for us to ask God to bless America when we have blatantly rejected what God has said a nation should do. So every time I hear that, ‘God bless America,’ I’m thinking, America is not in a posture for God to bless it.”
Perkins also claimed that he believed the U.S. should assemble a Convention of the States to amend the U.S. Constitution as a result of the marriage ruling.
“I just don’t think you can make it any worse than what our courts have made the Constitution,” Perkins said. “They’re ignoring the Constitution. They act like the average American can’t even read the plain text of the Constitution. They act as if we’re idiots. They have completely obliterated the Constitution and its meaning, treating it as if it were Silly Putty.”
