Hero of the Day

Here’s Texas Governor Rick Perry, heroically defending our border against unarmed children.

He’s so macho, squinting into the sun — too bad he doesn’t have one of those baseball hats that has a rim to keep the sun off his face.  He patrolled the border like that for at least ten or fifteen minutes — until the photographer had enough good shots — so you know we won’t be bothered by any refugee kids coming over here, taking our jobs and voting for Democrats all willy-nilly like the election was a pinata.  Or something.

Perry knows that we have to stop these kids from coming here because (1) they’re illegals (duh);  (2) we can’t just care for every single child that is unwanted (embryos excepted);  and (3) Uh.  Let’s see.  Hm.  I can’t remember the third thing.

Oops.

Homosexuality = Alcoholism

Texas Governor Rick Perry understands what the gays are going through.   That gay desire?  It’s just like alcoholism.  perry

“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,” he said.

That’s why he supports the Texas Republican platform which calls for gays to be “treated” in order to “cure” them — a stand that has been rejected by every psychiatric group since the mid 70s.

This is in stark contrast to other states, which have specifically banned such fraudulent actions.  Anyone who says they can “cure” homosexuality is a con artist.

But there is good news in this statement:  Perry is admitting, perhaps for the first time, that being gay is not a choice — that no one chooses their sexuality.  It’s in their “genetic coding.”

The bad news is that he still considers homosexual acts as wrong, from which one should refrain.  Why?  Well, because the Bible, of course.  We need religion in our laws.  Except that terrible, awful Sharia law.  Only our religion should be in the laws, because ‘Merica.

I wonder how he would feel if Texas Republicans decided that heterosexuals needed counseling to cure them from performing sexual acts they disagree with?  “You may be genetically coded to enjoy sex in positions other than missionary, but we can treat you so that you no longer have those desires.”  Let’s see how well that goes over.

Texas once again passes stupid law

Governor Rick Perry has three problems with the 1st amendment: First, it doesn’t allow Christians to say “Merry Christmas.” Second, it doesn’t allow for Christmas decorations. And third … uh … I can’t remember the third thing. Oops.

Yes, it’s true — Texas has just passed the “Merry Christmas Act” which is their fight against the “War on Christmas”. This law allows those in public schools to say “Merry Christmas” and allows for religious holiday decorations (as long as secular decorations are also included).

Hey, did any of you notice anything about that law? Such as that’s what the law is across the entire country now?

The whole made-up “War on Christmas” is based on the false premise that you are prohibited from having any religion whatsoever in the public sphere. “You’re not allowed to bring a Bible to school!” They yell. “You can’t even say a prayer if you want to, and you can’t have religious symbols even if secular symbols are included!”

The people who say these things are idiots, and assume you are too. They are absolutely wrong on every single point.

What is prohibited is government-sponsored religion. You can carry your Bible and say prayers all day long in school if you want to (so long as you don’t disturb classes and you otherwise follow all school rules that apply to everyone). Not to allow that would violate the “Free exercise” clause of the 1st Amendment. If a school official gives a prayer and hands out Bibles, then that would violate the “Establishment” clause of the 1st amendment (in that the government is not allowed to establish or promote religion).

It’s really very clear and obvious to anyone who takes a few seconds to read the Constitution — a small group of people that does not include Governor Perry, who proclaimed that “Religious freedom does not mean freedom from religion.” What an idiot.

But they don’t care, really. They just want to force everyone to follow their religion. A Texas judge even ruled recently that school cheerleaders were allowed to wear uniforms with Bible verses. If we protest, we’re waging a “War on Christians” but when they force their views on us, using our tax dollars, it’s never a “War on Non-Christians.”

These same hypocrites are the first ones who shout and scream about Sharia Law becoming part of America, even though this has never happened. It’s perfectly fine if their religion becomes part of our secular laws, but if anyone else’s religion pops up, suddenly they’re all 1st Amendment absolutists.

It’s maddening, it’s illegal, and it’s … it’s …. I can’t think of the third thing. Oops.
