Family Research Council (FRC) President
Tony Perkins on Monday criticized Hillary Clinton for including two
gay couples in her campaign launch video.
In the video, a male couple talks about
marrying, while a lesbian couple is seen siting on a couch.
“When families are strong, America is
strong,” Clinton says in the video.

“Her definition of family is a bit
said on his Washington Watch radio program. “She
actually had same-sex couples there in her video.”
Perkins and his guest, CNSNews' Terry
Jeffrey, lamented weak Republican opposition on the issue.
“So it seemed to me that Rand Paul
yesterday was essentially surrendering the marriage issue,” said
to an appearance on CNN. “If you have a candidate that does
that, a Republican Party candidate who does that in the fall
election, then there is going to be millions of voters all over
America – especially people who are married folks with families who
get out and go to work and support and raise their own kids and
believe in the Judeo-Christian moral tradition that made America
great and made America free – you will have millions of voters like
that say ‘wait a minute’ and they’re going to be turned off and
some of them, quite frankly, aren’t going to want to vote for
somebody who takes that position.”
