Rick Perry confronted by 14 yr old over gays in military. Perry: Homosexuality is a Sin…
Dick Perry was confronted by a 14 yr old girl asking the alleged gay sex lover, why does he apose gays serving in the military and below is his “brilliant” response:
As Perry shook hands, a girl approached him and asked why he opposed gays serving openly in the military. Her question ended with a charged clause: “and why you want to deny them their freedom when they’re fighting for your rights.”
What Perry didn’t know during the exchange was that the girl, 14-year-old Rebecka Green, is herself openly bisexual.
“This is about my faith, and I happen to think that there are a whole host of sins, homosexuality being one of them,” Perry said, adding that he himself was “a sinner” so he wouldn’t “be the first one to throw a stone.”
An according to the just released book Head Figure Head: the search for the hidden life of Rick Perry (which i am currently reading) Rick Perry is quite the sinner himself…
Reflecting on another question he had received this week about how he would feel if his own child were gay, Perry said, “I’d feel the same way. I hate the sin but I love the sinner.”
“I’m openly bisexual and I didn’t want to be told that if I wanted to serve in the military that I couldn’t, and I just think [the Don't Ask, Don't Tell] policy is completely ridiculous,” Green told reporters after the exchange. “Nobody should be able to tell somebody who they can or cannot love. I just don’t agree with it.”
Her father, Todd Green, a professor at Luther College, said he and his daughter came to the event after Green saw an ad Perry is airing in Iowa that questions why gays can serve openly in the military while, “our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.”
“He seemed to get that backward. Christians are not being persecuted in the United States of America. They’ve been in a position of dominance and power and privilege throughout the history of the United States of America. LGBT persons have not,” he told reporters.
