Rick Perry Sounds Off On Gays – In San Francisco!

Perhaps no American city has a more vibrant homosexual community than San Francisco, which might explain the shocked reaction Texas Gov. Rick Perry received upon voicing his opinion of the lifestyle.

Just days after his state made waves nationwide for passing a law permitting controversial therapy intended to help gays become straight, Perry answered questions regarding the issue during an event in San Francisco Wednesday evening.

He responded to an inquiry regarding whether he believes homosexuality is akin to a disorder, providing a comparison that likely resonated among many who believe the proclivity is a sin.

Explaining that, just as certain individuals are inclined to follow paths others aren’t, he believes those predisposed to homosexuality can overcome their desire through willpower.

“Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not,” he stated, “you have the ability to decide not to do that.”

Perry gave one specific example that apparently struck some attendees as unconscionable.

“I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic,” he reasoned. “But I have the desire not to do that; and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”

His answer was met by gasps from the audience in the far-left California city. Many critics also responded harshly on Twitter:

Perry did receive significant support for his candid comment, however. A number of individuals left comments below a local CBS report offering a different take on the issue.

“Oh Perry didn’t get the memo that Homosexuality is normal, its [sic] a pity,” one commenter wrote. “For all these thousands of years it has been viewed as a perversion and now during our enlightened period since Obama was elected, it has become normal.”

Another reader predicted future hardships for Perry because of his increasingly unpopular viewpoint:

“The homosexual mafia will politically assassinate him despite the fact that he’s right.”

The intent of his California trip was to extol his state’s low taxes and limited bureaucracy in an attempt to convince even more businesses to relocate to Texas.

    When it comes to queers you'd better side with them or they will try to hurt you.Queers are screwed up in the head and maybe a shrink could help them,I don't know.I have a granddaughter who is a cupcake and we as her grandparents have to live with it but I know if she was getting married I'd never attend.RickmPerry is entitled to his opinion just like they're entitled to theirs.I can't imagine a man wanting to dick another guy in the poop shoot instead of a nice vagina definitely need a shrink.

      I like Rick Perry, and I appreciate that he is a conservative, it is good to see some people with good sense and values

    I can't blame a woman from eating carpet, but men who want to play the skin flute have a mental disorder like most liberals
