Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry pledges to end “[President Barack] Obama’s war on religion” in a new television ad airing in Iowa, railing against open service of gays and lesbians in the military and the prohibition against prayer in public schools.
“I’m not ashamed to admit I’m a Christian,” says Perry. “But you don’t need to be in the pews every Sunday to know that there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.”
“As president, I’ll end Obama’s war on religion and I’ll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage,” the Texas governor continues. “Faith made America strong. It can make her strong again.”
Perry is said to be pissed off that President Obama has been considering using U.S. foreign aid to help convince other countries to decriminalize homosexuality.
The narrow-minded Republican goes on to say:
“This is just the most recent example of an administration at war with people of faith in this country,” he said. “Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong. President Obama has again mistaken America’s tolerance for different lifestyles with an endorsement of those lifestyles.”
Wow, well looks like another Republican will be out of the race soon, because there is no WAY that GLAAD will let this ride. Will they???
How do you feel about Rick Perry’s stance??
