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.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
