Rick Perry, Eagle Scout, has written a book about the boy scouts, defending their homophobic and anti humanist activism.
An Eagle Scout and the father of an Eagle Scout, Perry stresses the importance of Scout values such as being “courteous and kind.” (He is fond of phrases like “gosh” and “jiminy cricket.”) He has received the Silver Antelope Award for outstanding service to the Scouts.
Asked in a recent interview if being gay was a choice (I presume the interview pegged Perry for gay, otherwise why ask him this question), he replied:
I’m not a social scientist. I can’t answer the question of, “Is it the environment that one finds oneself in or is it the way you’re wired up when you are born?” I don’t know. I do know this: that people have a choice to engage in that activity.
Asked about the ACLU, Perry indicates:
The secularists want to sanitize the Pledge of Allegiance, our currency, our government buildings and Scout oath from any mention of God.
It seems to be that the Gov basically understand the situation. And he’s gotta go.
