A few people were ranting on Facebook tonight about Rick Perry's "Strong" ad. So I watched it, and was rather disgusted. Am I the only one who thinks this guy is a complete douchebag?
I am pretty much in the middle when it comes to politics. But this just completely rubbed me the wrong way. What kind of smarmy comment is that---"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."
First of all, if you want to repeal a ban that's been in place since 1962 in US schools, you go right ahead. But separation of church & state has been around much longer than you, buddy!
IMO he should be thankful that we've had enough people volunteer to serve in our military--gay or straight--over the last 20 years during a war without drafting anyone....unlike WWII and Vietnam.
And Rick Perry, did you forget who makes it possible for you to be free to celebrate Christmas in this country?!
