Well whattaya know? The candidate so gung ho for state's rights he thinks it would be okay for a state to secede, doesn't respect a state's right to legislate their own marriage laws.
Presidential candidate Rick Perry praised the legislators working to overturn New Hampshire's same-sex marriage law last night in Manchester.
"As conservatives we believe in the sanctity of life. We believe in the sanctity of traditional marriage," Perry said. "And I applaud those legislators in New Hampshire who are working to defend marriage as an institution between one man and one woman, realizing that children need to be raised in a loving home by a mother and a father."
Bruce Reeves of Manchester said after Perry's remarks that the governor's stance on issues like abortion and gay marriage have fully informed his decision to support him for president.
"It's more instinct. I think it's from his heart. . . . His issues are really derived from his own belief system," Reeves said. "It's not something he's adopted to meet a certain political point."
What's coming from Perry's heart is bigotry. What's coming out of his mouth is bullshit.
