I guess he not only make every effort to overturn the repeal of DADT, it also looks like he try to repeal the separation of church & state with the reasoning that after 212 years its not working

O.K., let me try and get my head wraped around this. Gs & Ls are sinners, and shouldn't serve in the military. Churches say we are all sinners. Therefore, since sinners shouldn't serve in the military, no one should be in the military. Have I got his position correct?

I think he means, "Only some sinners", just more picking and choosing.

Apparently GOD's 10 Commandments aren't good enough for Perry; so he added:
.
++++++++++
11. Thou shalt not be born with homosexual orientation
++++++++++
.
So is Perry running for Commander in Chief; or Fundamentalist in Charge?

I don't understand, is he saying Gays can serve, fight and die for his freedom but can't date? All these guys say the same thing don't they!

Apparently, from what I have seen, all that Perry is going to DO on the day after inauguration is deal with all things gay, to destroy all civil rights and advancements of a particular demographic. Then what? What is going to DO for the next three years and eleven months and 29 days of his presidency?

Once again an anti-gay GOP candidate can't offer an explaination for their bigotry. They can't even get the facts rights, since many in the military- including the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs- DID think it was good for the military to get rid of DADT.

He should simply tell the truth and say he doens't like gay people because he hold irrational religious beliefs.

This is a great point. Since there are huge numbers of single men and women in the military, are we naturally to assume that they must all be virgins? Of course, after we reenact DADT, we should add to it, if you are single and have ever had sex, then you better not tell or be thrown out of the service for your sins.

It would have been great if that girl had followed up with the logical question, "Then, based on your religious beliefs, shouldn't we also be discharging all fornicators, all who drink to excess, all atheists, Muslims, etc, etc,.......after all, they are sinners too?"

What a pathetic bigot Perry is.

Wonder if he knows that Christians and Jews are not the only religions in the world?

Gays being more open is a threat to guys like Perry. Because they vote. So do their families, friends and people they do business with. It's no longer a minority in the closet. When people know Gay people they realize they're just trying to live their lives like anyone else. Not good for conservatives. Look at his polling.

Thanks, Rainbow, for the official list. So if those are the sins, and sinners can't serve, then the first time a servicemember kills an enemy they should be kicked out. The first guys who brags about how much he got last weekend from that girl he picked up in a bar, when he really got slapped and sent home with blue balls, should be kicked out. Every enlisted man who looks covetously at an officer's insignia should be kicked out.

I think three examples are enough. This analogy can go on for ever.

Happily, Perry won't. Someone needs to stick a fork in that idiot--he's done.

A place that skips the 4th Commandment. Dallas, lovely. Termites out yet.

Hope the "Stars" are doing well.
