Conservative Leader Agrees to Visit Home of Married Gay Couple for First Time

At CNN, Dan Gilgoff reports on Tony Perkins’ decision to visit the home of a married same-sex couple. Perkins heads the socially conservative Family Research Council, which “has helped lead a national movement to ban same-sex marriage.” Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council, invited Perkins to dinner with her and her wife, who have twin boys and a baby on the way. “While I recognize it may not change your mind, I hope that it might soften your heart,” Chrisler wrote in her invitation. “As Christians, I think we can both agree that ours is not to judge and that we must live by the golden rule.”
