    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, campaigning in New Hampshire Friday, praised legislators in the state for working to repeal the state's same-sex marriage law. ---from today's Huff Post

    "As conservatives we believe in the sanctity of life. We believe in the sanctity of traditional marriage," Perry said at the annual banquet for Cornerstone Action, a conservative advocacy group.

    "And I applaud those legislators in New Hampshire who are working to defend marriage as an institution between one man and one woman, realizing that children need to be raised in a loving home by a mother and a father."

    REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, GOVERNOR RICK PERRY seems to be advocating the Bat-Shit Crazy idea of taking away our rights to marry the person we love.

    BUT that can't be right??? Would the Conserva-posse please reinterpret the governor's words for the rest of us?

    Perry is probably picking the wrong state to be spouting his anti-gay marriage rhetoric, not to mention the wrong time since social issues are hardly at the top of people's priority list these days

    Well CJ..AZ, Perry is just one of many in the republican party, surely you've noticed at the debate's just how far toward the religious right the republicans have swung, put any of them in office and the first far right push for such as Perry's above Idea and they'd go for it in a heartbeat, to keep those bible thumpers voting their way. Doesn't this fact give you pause when you consider voting for any of them ?


    Take a look at what the Republican congress has spent their time on since regaining power, social issues and undoing anything Obama has done including undoing EPA regs that have worked for our own good since the days of Reagan. But as one repub said when he quoted the bible saying that God would never allow the world to be destroyed again, so burn that oil, God won't let us destroy what he made. Yes sir - eeee, vote republican and bring our country back to god. LOL but the attitude you portray is --- No need for alarm !!! Vote republican. You believers amaze me at what you'll ignore to keep voting republican.

    RLD, I'm a lot more optimistic than you are. If a Republican takes back The White House, I do not believe it will be such a bad thing. Time will tell. Who knows, we all may be going to Hell in a hand basket regardless of who wins the election.

    Hopefully the legislators trying to repeal the gay marriage law in New Hampshire will fail miserably. Hopefully the people of New Hampshire will vote out these right wing lunatics when their reelection time comes up.

    But I don't hear you opposing the goal of Perry's "anti-gay marriage rhetoric," just his political tactics in selecting New Hampshire to achieve it, and his timing.

    So do you oppose gay marriage or not? Yes or no? No prevarication, please.

    People should be able to marry the person they love. Period. This is just a given. It was wrong in prior days that people couldn't marry another race. No way would I vote for any born-again who cannot see that. On the other hand - - no way would I vote for anyone who sat on his ass in the pews of the hate filled Reverend Wright.

    Do you know who we need as president in 2012?
    Not Perry.

    Not Obama.

    My answer: Someone Else.

    Use your head? Why would I oppose "gay marriage"? That would be silly. I oppose Perry's gay marriage rhetoric, but as I pointed out I also feel that rhetoric is ill-timed for the state (New Hampshire) and the times we are in (2011/2012 with nearly 10% unemployment) since most people do not hold "social issues" at the top of their priority list these days with so many other pressing issues affecting the entire country. Rick Perry is just grasping at straws trying anything he can to climb his way back from the abyss he seemingly fell into. I suspect it won't work and only serve to show how out of touch he really is.

    Disappointing.

    Very disappointing.

    With the exception of Dr. Ron Paul, who hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning (as much as I REALLY want him to) ... all the GOP front runners are on board the NOM train, or have otherwise sucked up to the fundamentalists.
