I flagged it for discrimination against sexual orientation. I won’t even get into the religious aspect of it, but what he said about gay people is offensive, and at the root, just not nice.

“you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know 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.”

 

Yes that is the problem, not the economy. Thanks Rick Perry.

I don’t think he was saying it’s wrong to have people be openly gay in the military. I think he was getting at the unequaility of letting some people express their “secular” views but others are being condemned for expresing their “religious” views.

@soontobebyrdy: Gay is not a secular view, it is a sexual orientation.

 

Ugh, leaving this thread before my head explodes

That must be the worst political add ever.  I have worked in conservative politics for more than 20 years, and I am ashamed of that ad.  He has five different subjects on that ad that don’t even correlate.  And to take all of those subjects to lambash the gay community, just flat out stupid, unproductive, and flat out insane.  I knew all these things about him long before he decided to run.  He is just a moron ~shakes head~ this is why he is at the bottom of the polls.  Americans are smarter than to vote for this idiot.

Not to mention that it’s just patently false. Christians are welcome to pray openly in schools – just like Muslims, Jews or people of any other religion would be. But if you want your teacher to lead you in a class prayer every morning, you’ll have to go to a private Christian school for that, for obvious reasons.

@natbug21: I honestly don’t think he’s the BIGGEST douche ever. I think there are some bigger douches In My Humble Opinion. Anyhow, this is what I find funny. Have you seen this? The jacket in the ad is the same as the jacket Heath Ledger wore in Brokeback Mountain.  Innocent

 

Ps. This ad IS targeted to Evangelical Christians and others who make up the really committed part of the electorate that vote in Primaries. Will it work? I don’t know. But probably due to polling data etc, his folks were told that this is something primary voters care about. I read that his campaign was sharply divided about the ad though. Lots of them didn’t want it shot and aired.

What people tend to forget about religion is that not everyone in this country worships the same God. The entire reason this country was founded was so we could have religious freedoms and worship whatever diety we please. There is nothing wrong with religion, but you need to respect other’s beliefs as you want yours respected.

@soontobebyrdy: Except being gay isn’t a secular view…it’s a sexual orientation.

Apologies for the laughing stock that is Governor Goodhair. ::sigh::
