Tony Perkins' Statement On Michael Steele's GQ Interview


Washington D.C. - Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins released the following statement in response to Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele's interview with GQ magazine.

"I read the article last night so I am familiar not only with his comments about the life issue but also about the efforts to redefine marriage and 'mucking' up the constitution. I expressed my concerns to the chairman earlier this week about previous statements that were very similar in nature. He assured me as chairman his views did not matter and that he would be upholding and promoting the Party platform, which is very clear on these issues. It is very difficult to reconcile the GQ interview with the chairman's pledge.

"Before making further public statements regarding Mr. Steele's interview and what impact it may have upon social conservative support for the RNC I will give him an opportunity to respond to a message I've sent him regarding the matter."
