14 Year Old Bisexual Teen Confronts Rick Perry Over His Anti-Gay Agenda

Rebecka Green, a 14 year old high school student in Iowa who identifies as bisexual confronted Rick Perry yesterday over his anti-gay agenda and most specifically why he is so against gays serving in the military.

Perry responded:

“Here’s my issue. This is about my faith, and I happen to think, you know, there are a whole hosts of sins. Homosexuality being one of them, and I’m a sinner and so I’m not going to be the first one to throw a stone,” Perry said. “I don’t agree that openly gays should be serving in the military. ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ was working and my position is just like I told a guy yesterday, he said, ‘How would you feel if one of your children was gay?’ I said I’d feel the same way. I hate the sin, but I love the sinner, but having them openly serve in the military, I happen to think as a commander in chief of some 20,000 plus people in the military is not good public policy, and this president was forced by his base to change that policy and I don’t think it was good policy, and I don’t think people in the military thought it was good policy.”

Rebecka later on an ABC news interview about her questioning of Perry said:

I’m openly bisexual and I don’t want to be told that if I wanted to serve in the military that I couldn’t, and I just think that policy is completely ridiculous that he thinks that. I just don’t like it. Him or nobody should be able to tell somebody who they can or can’t love.”

Brava Recbecka!
