Last month I wrote why I couldn’t support Michele Bachmann for president. Apparently, Rick Perry surveyed the GOP candidate field and felt there just were just not enough candidates that loved Jesus as much as he does – so he is now poised to throw his 10 gallon hat into the ring and give it a go.
“Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex. And you know what? That’s New York, and that’s their business, and that’s fine with me,” Perry said. “That is their call. If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business.” Source
“I probably needed to add a few words after that ‘it’s fine with me’ and that it’s fine with me that a state is using their sovereign rights to decide an issue. Obviously gay marriage is not fine with me. My stance hasn’t changed.
“The real fear is states like New York will change the definition of marriage for Texas. That is the reason the Federal Marriage Amendment is being offered. It’s a small group of activists judges and really a small handful, if you will, of states and these liberal special interest groups that are intent on a redefinition, if you will, of marriage on the nation for all of us, which I adamantly oppose. Indeed, to not pass the Federal Marriage Amendment would impinge on Texas’ and other states’ right not to have marriage forced upon them by these activist judges and these special interest groups.” Source
The scary part about Ricky letting ol’ Jesus take the wheel is that when Ricky started praying for some divine intervention to end Texas’ drought – this is what it looked like:
After months of prayer, here was the situation in June:
Either Rick is just a crappy Christian – or god has better things to do than mess around in the world’s climate. I’m going with the latter, but not ruling out the former…just saying…
