Tony Perkins, president of the Christian conservative Family Research Center (FRC), has likened being gay to a drug addition.

During Friday's edition of Washington Watch, Perkins equated being gay to having an adulterous relationship.

“Here's the telling thing about speaking to this issue of homosexuality and I think we got to be very, very careful here,” Perkins said on the radio program. “First off we need to be praying for those who are bound up in these lifestyles whether it is homosexuality, whether it is drugs, whatever it might be, anything that is outside the design of God for mankind, it could be adulterous relationships, it doesn't matter.”

“Our goal in speaking about human sexuality is not to win an argument but it is to point people to life, the abundant life,” he added.
