A white sheet in the Center for Moral Clarity's closet?

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, is a frequent guest, ally and confidant of Rev. Rod Parsley, leader of the Center for Moral Clarity. The CMC is the unofficial Elect Ken Blackwell Committee.

Parsley is also the author of "Silent No More" in which the CMC says the flamboyant rev:
. . . shares disturbing truths about education, poverty, racism, abortion and other vital subjects. And he provides a startlingly clear vision of a more moral America – an America that once was, and can be again.
Perkins, always the fan of Parsleys, provides this endorsement of "Silent":
Rod Parsley speaks out on the major issues that threaten the future of our culture and the long-term security of our nation. Silent No More does not merely lay out the scope of the challenge, but also offers the information and action steps essential to the solution.
----The Honorable Tony Perkins
Given his Blackwell support and his desire to reveal truths about racism in America, Tony Perkins may suddenly become some undesirable baggage for Parsley. Via Atrios amd The Nation:
Four years ago, Perkins addressed the Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), America's premier white supremacist organization, the successor to the White Citizens Councils, which battled integration in the South. In 1996 Perkins paid former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke $82,000 for his mailing list. At the time, Perkins was the campaign manager for a right-wing Republican candidate for the US Senate in Louisiana. The Federal Election Commission fined the campaign Perkins ran $3,000 for attempting to hide the money paid to Duke.
Exactly what part of "Moral Clarity" do Perkins and Parsley not get?
