Hello, My Name is Rick and I'm Homophobic

Rick Perry: Being gay is similar to being alcoholic

By Scot Kersgaard

Fresh off a Denver fundraiser, Texas governor Rick Perry today became the fourth GOP candidate to sign the National Organization for Marriage’s anti marriage equality pledge. Thursday night Perry hosted a fundraiser in suburban Denver. Admission was said to be $5,000 a pop.

Of course, Perry’s position on marriage equality is nothing new. In a 2008 book, he wrote:

Even if an alcoholic is powerless over alcohol once it enters his body, he still makes a choice to drink. And, even if someone is attracted to a person of the same sex, he or she still makes a choice to engage in sexual activity with someone of the same gender.

  1. “… an alcoholic is powerless over alcohol once it enters his body, but he still makes a choice to drink”

    If I’m reading this right, then he’s saying that homosexuality is like alcohol in that you are powerless once it has entered you? I really have no idea what kind of movies that guy is watching.

    1. I really have no idea what kind of movies that guy is watching.

      What kind of movies he’s watching may fall into the category of “what you don’t know won’t hurt you.” Probably far more hardcore than Russ Meyer.  

      1. As others have noted the title outside this page reads “Hello, my name is Rick and I’m Homo…”

        I don’t have any reason to think Rick Perry’s in the closet. Marcus Bachmann on the other hand…well that’s a story for another day.
