Tony Perkins Blasts Google’s International ‘Legalize Love’ Project To Decriminalize Homosexuality | Family Research Council president Tony Perkins took to his radio bulletin today to deride “Legalize Love,” Google’s new project promoting safer conditions for LGBT people in countries with anti-gay laws on the books. Perkins advocates for political “neutrality,” dismissing Legalize Love as a misguided attempt to change “countries that aren’t as gay-friendly.” But a country like Singapore — which is Legalize Love’s first target — isn’t just gay-unfriendly: The country criminalizes certain homosexual activity. When anti-gay groups attempt to push businesses towards the red herring “neutrality” position, they are really advocating for more LGBT invisibility and prejudice. Google’s campaign continues the trend of businesses realizing nondiscrimination policies are not only the right thing to do for employees, but are also plainly good for business.
