Here's the transcript if you're not able to watch it (I know it's unnerving to watch Perry babble on with that perpetual plastic smile on his face that makes him look like an animatronic. I mean, we know Al Gore was a robot too, but he was more of a sullen "I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave" type of robot, whereas Perry has more of a Disney vibe going on. Walt Disney hated Jews.).
"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."
Gays in the military and Christmas are his arguments? What on earth does one have to do with the other? Oh wait...the bible sort of says in a cryptic kind of way that homosexuality is a sin, so if Obama is going to be all "make that camouflage SPARKLE!" to those who are willing to die for this weird ass country, then he must be attacking religion. Or at least, Christianity. Or at the very least, Rick Perry's bizarre little mind.
Honestly, the next time someone asks me why I feel the need to be an active atheist, I'm just going to point them to this video.
