Happy Gay And/Or Alcoholic Pride Month from Gov. Rick Perry

by Jeremy Hooper

Governorrickperryphoto-WebWell of course his state party was right to add scientifically discredited "ex-gay" therapy to its official party platform, says the conservative governor of Texas. After all, we have AA programs, so what's the big deal?

"Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that," Perry said. "I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way."

Totally, guv. Or kind of like how you can be disposed to say completely disgusting things about a vibrant minority population of human beings who fall perfectly along the scientifically recognized spectrum of sexual orientation and also make the choice to voice them. AmIRight?

The truth, of course, is that the only equation between homosexuality and alcohol is that when it comes to both, many within the Texas conservative movement (and the conservative movement at large) prefer an open bar. Oh, and also both have a way of destroying a good party when overdone.
