Are you suggesting Perry is an alcoholic or a homosexual? Are you suggesting that it would be something to be ashamed of if he was either?

There are a lot of rumors floating around that he is bisexual and an expenses report by Texas (allegedly. I've only heard it from a 3rd party source) showed he attended a bar called La-T-Da in Key West, which is a known gay hangout

There were a lot of rumors floating around about Obama also being bisexual. If Perry is bi, would that be a problem for liberals?

No, but the hypocrisy of supporting anti-gay groups while being a closet gay would be problem, IF rumors about Perry were proven to be true.

I would be surprised if there were any substance to these rumors that come entirely from the left and are nothing more than the usual smear tactics.

The "purpose" of sex in my marriage was to bring my husband and I closer together. Yes, it resulted in my sons, but that was never the purpose of it.

Well guess what? I'm Christian myself and I still find Mr. Perry's ideas about homosexuality bizarrely ignorant. "Controlling one's behavior" has NOTHING to do with one being homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual. Or are you one of those who thinks sexual orientation depends on one's sexual behavior? Just as I'm still heterosexual despite being celibate for more than a dozen years, a gay man or lesbian is STILL homosexual if they never have sex with another
of their own gender. Sexual orientation describes the gender of the person with whom you WANT to have sex, not the person with whom you CHOOSE to have sex.

BTW, this Christian does not see homosexuality as any kind of 'sin'. What I consider sinful is judging another's life and attempting to control anyone's life but my own.

It may well be unnatural for you. That, however, doesn't make it in anyway unnatural for someone whose orientation is homosexual.

Yes, that is what uneducated people believe. I'm sure there are some people who still believe the Earth is flat too.

Gays are treated better in this country than almost any "group." They are put on a pedestal and given special treatment such as "protected class." They profess to want to be treated equally, but if you ever criticize a gay person, just as you might criticize anyone else, you're immediately labeled a bigot. Gays are glorified on television, movies and the media. It is hip and trendy to be gay in this country, and the gay community is untouchable.
Actually, I would think that would depend on exactly what you are criticizing. If the criticism is regarding the fact that one IS gay, then yes, I would call you a bigot.
