Rick “Good Hair” Perry Back an Anti-Gay Constitutional Amendment

At the cavalcade of conservative clap-trap in Denver this past week, Texas Governor Rick Perry said that he supports a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. This after previously saying that social issues were a state-by-state issue. From USA Today:

Perry…said social issues should be decided state by state and even remarked that New York’s passage of gay marriage law was that state’s business. Still, he said he would support a constitutional amendment that takes away the power of the states to decide who can get married.

“Yes, sir, I would. I am for the federal marriage amendment,” he said. “And that’s about as sharp a point as I could put on it.”

This from a guy who thinks creationism should be taught in school. Luck for Texas that the Governor’s office is purely ceremonial. What a clown.



Originally from Denver, now living in the Low Countries of Europe. Spent four years in the Navy, got out when I realized I was a big ole flaming mo. Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
