Why I won’t be supporting Rick “Guns and Jeesus” Perry

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.

Perry, as if anyone didn’t know, is the governor of the great country of Texas.  Some might think it’s a state – but just ask a Texan, they’ll set you straight right away.  Straight is an operative word when considering a Perry candidacy.  I think it is a state constitutional law that bans homosexuality in Texas.  At least it did until 1986 when the Supreme Court ruled on Lawrence v. Texas – a decision that actually went in favor of privacy of citizens!

Rick Perry almost appeared to support a state’s right to define the laws of its’ citizenry.  Following New York’s passage of Gay Marriage – Gov. Perry applauded the decision:
“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
But Smilin’ Rick is running for president now and had to quickly back-track on that statement and offer clarification for the “JesusHates Fags” crowd.  Ricky stated a couple days later:

“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

But Ricky puts his money – or at least his hat that holds the money – where his mouth is.  Perry, who has been praying for rain for several months now to alleviate the drought plaguing the Southwest, is hosting today The Response!  Set in Houston – Ricky is appealing to all good Christians to join him in a prayer that will reset this country’s moral compass and get us back on the right track – just check out the video!

Absolutely some awesome stuff!

Rock on Rick Perry!  Just what this country needs now – another governor from the state of Texas who can’t wait to hand Jesus the steering wheel and kick up his boots on the desk.  This guy makes Mitt Romney look more and more appealing as the voice of sanity.

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…
