(MEDIAITE) — Faithful America — an activist organization that seeks to address “pressing moral issues of our time” — is petitioning MSNBC to take Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, off the air. Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson personally delivered a petition with 20,000 signatures to the cable news network.

The petition states: “The Family Research Council is a hate group, and journalists ought to treat it as such. MSNBC must stop inviting Family Research Council spokespeople on the air to represent the views of Christians and other people of faith.”
