Rick Perry, Christianity, Gays And Strong Wrong
Written by 

steve_sabludowsky01I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m not a Rick Perry supporter--especially after his new commercial which is below.

 I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian, but 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. 

As President, I'll end Obama's war on religion. And I'll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage. 
Faith made America strong. It can make her strong again. 
I'm Rick Perry and I approve this message.



 

Let me be really clear, how I feel here…

 

I am not upset that Rick Perry is Christian or that he is not ashamed to admit that he is a Christian. And there is many things wrong with this country including not remembering which federal departments the Texas Governor would eliminate if he were President of the United States.  

 

When he made that senior moment error weeks ago, later, he went around tubeland saying he “stepped in it”. 

That was a cutsie way to say I really messed up and he’s got a real ugly one on his shoes.

 

Today, I believe he has an ugly one all the way up his waist.

 

What he has done with this commercial is essentially Willie Horton’ed gays and somehow trying to equalize and make parallel the issue of gays in the military with the right to pray or celebrate Christmas in  schools.

 

I believe it would be wonderful to have religion and Christmas in schools and the more the merrier. The problem I have is how do  we equalize the rights and opportunities for non-Christians so they do not feel ostracized.    

 

I also wonder if Perry is engaging in a subtle attack against Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion to shed votes away from a leading candidate with the hopes of bolstering the Texas Governor’s shabby poll numbers.

 

Unquestionably, the Judeo-Christian standards and heritages are the driving forces as to what has made America great.   So “these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

 

If we take Perry at his words, I wonder if he would support gays in the military if kids could openly celebrate Christmas and praying in school? Or, would he support kids openly celebrating Christmas and praying in school in exchange for not allowing gays in the military?

 

Somehow, I believe Rick Perry is demonizing gays for the purpose of supporting his own political campaign and this type of commercial is a STRONG reminder as to what separates us rather than what brings us together as Americans.

 

This is how I feel, and I approve this message.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
