And he has it right:
From the Dallas News:
Perry, a former and potential future GOP presidential candidate, was then asked whether he believed that homosexuality was a disorder.
The newspaper said the governor responded that “whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that.”
“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.
Our culture currently believes that alcoholism, a genetic predisposition among a segment of our population, is not good for society. Consequently, our culture encourages treatment to curtail the alcoholic's use of alcohol.
On the other hand, our culture currently believes that homosexuality, also a genetic predisposition among a segment of our population, is NOT harmful to society. Consequently, our culture DIScourages treatment to curtail active homosexual behavior. In fact, our culture is so manipulated by the aggressive homosexual special interests and sympathizers in this country, that it is a crime to call homosexuality a destructive behavior that adversely affects our society.
This protection of evil is the equivalent of encouraging the alcoholics of America to continue drinking – being blind to the consequences to society.
Our society has declined (not “progressed” as “progressives” would like us to believe) to the point of not realizing or understanding the harm rampant and overt homosexuality will have on our civilization. We cannot see beyond the next episode of the many TV shows normalizing homosexual lifestyles.
