Recognized as the leading conservative and pro-life voice in the Louisiana Legislature, Tony was a tireless advocate for the family. In an effort to address the growing social problems brought about by the instability of marriage and no-fault divorce, he authored and passed the nation’s first Covenant Marriage law in 1997, which captured the attention of policymakers across the country.

Keeping his commitment to serving only two terms, Tony had a significant impact on Louisiana politics as a state representative and as a candidate for the United States Senate in 2002. His firm yet empathetic stance on issues and his unwavering commitment to principle has won him the admiration of his allies and the respect of his adversaries.

While in the Legislature, he authored numerous other policy initiatives, including:

  • State Family Impact Statement, requiring state agencies to consider the impact of rules and regulations on families;
  • Comprehensive Abortion Clinic regulations;
  • Genetic Non-discrimination Act;
  • Public School Internet Filtering requirement; and
  • Expansion of Louisiana Department of Corrections partnership with faith-based organizations to reduce recidivism rates.

 

During his tenure as FRC’s president, Tony has substantially deepened the organization’s influence on Capitol Hill and throughout the country through his frequent attendance at state and regional political and policy events. Tony has also expanded the organization’s reach across the nation by building a major network of pastors and churches, encouraging them to impact the culture by thinking nationally, but acting locally.

 

Tony, who is an ordained minister, remains active in Christian ministries serving as an elder in his home church and frequently filling pulpits across the country. He is a board member of Caring to Love Ministries, one of Louisiana’s largest pregnancy resource centers. Additionally, he serves as president of the Council for National Policy.

 

An effective communicator, Tony is the host of a daily, nationally syndicated radio show, Washington Watch with Tony Perkins. He frequently appears as a guest on national news programs and talk shows. In addition, he has been a guest speaker for respected organizations across the country. He is the author of No Fear: Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth.

 

A veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a former police officer, Tony brings a unique perspective to the public policy process. In addition to domestic law enforcement, he oversaw the training of hundreds of international police officers as the general manager for a Washington, D.C.-based firm contracted by the U.S. Department of State to provide the training and services in anti-terrorism.

Tony holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Liberty University, a Master of Public Administration degree from Louisiana State University, and was awarded an honorary doctorate of divinity from Liberty University.

He and his wife Lawana have been married since 1986 and have five children.

TRUTH & LIBERTY COALITION

The Seven Mountains of Societal Influence

In 2000, Lance Wallnau launched the 7 Mountain Mandate, a powerful, transformative campaign intended to bring about social transformation.

These seven fields of society must be reached and ultimately conquered:

Religion & Faith; Family; Education; Government & Law; Media, News & Commentary; Arts & Entertainment; and Business & Economics.

The Kingdom of God is enormous – far bigger than your family or local church. To deliver the truth of God’s Kingdom and unite the Body of Christ with the world at large, we believe we have a mandate to bring Godly change to our nation and, in truth the world, through the seven spheres – or mountains – of societal influence.

7 Mountains

Our vision is the reformation of Nations by igniting the latent potential in the Body of Christ. Our mission is to establish and catalyze a movement that promotes the true reformation and flourishing of Nations through the teachings of Jesus Christ, empowering His people by providing content, cohesion, and direction to our 7M coalition.

Religion & Faith

In the west, Christianity is under attack and the concept of God is being rejected more than ever. We believe that the Church must revive its previously strong influence on Western society, expanding the Kingdom of God by spreading knowledge of the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church is tasked with expanding His message through ministerial efforts in our nation and across the world.
null

Family

The family is the centerpiece of any functioning society. Unfortunately, families in the U.S. have been under attack and suffered from dysfunction for decades. Divorce, fatherlessness, abuse and homosexual marriage are among the primary culprits. We believe God wants to bring healing to marriages and relationships, ending this chaos and providing a solid moral foundation for our children.
null

Education

Once, our education system unapologetically incorporated biblical principles and prayer into students’ daily routines. Now, our children are being indoctrinated with liberal ideologies, atheistic teaching and postmodern principles in our public schools and even in Christian institutions. We seek to restore biblical truth and Godly morality into our country’s America’s failing educational system.
null

Government & Law

A nation’s moral condition is often reflected in its political leaders. Unfortunately, we have seen a steady increase of political corruption, as well as a steady erosion of the link between our government and legal system and the Christian values upon which our country was founded. Our goal is to educate and equip citizens so they can effectively influence government at all levels with Truth and righteousness.
null

Media, News & Commentary

The Media, News & Commentary mountain includes sources such as TV, radio, newspapers, online news, and, of course, the hugely influential social media sites and blogs on the Internet. To bring transformation to this enormous mountain, we shall speak the truth from a Biblical perspective to combat the sea of disinformation spread by liberal elite outlets and other mainstream media sources.
null

Arts & Entertainment

Music, movies, television, and social media wield enormous influence on our youth, and the dark forces of sex, drugs, alcohol and immorality that permeate these fields are spreading dangerous messages to our children. The body of Christ is in desperate need of righteous people who take their talents into these fields and are unafraid of using their platform to further His greater purposes.
null

Business & Economics

The free market system is a God-given gift, enabling us to build wealth through enterprise, creativity and effort. We believe in limiting the role of government in our nation’s business practices and allowing the free markets to run their course. We also espouse prosperity with a purpose, calling upon those who manage businesses to lead with integrity, honesty and by biblical principles.
