My thoughts exactly. That snide remark at gays was pretty fucking disgusting.
There is no issue with kids celebrating Christmas. There is no issue with kids praying. What there is an issue with is the idea of imposing religion on others in a place such as a school. Religion does not belong in the public education system or any other government institution for that matter. That goes for all religions.
If there is to be hope for the United States to progress, people like Rick Perry must be voted out entirely. Secular politics is the only way to improve life for all. Laws should be written to protect people of all races, genders and sexual orientations based on concrete evidence and forward thinking. They cannot be based on handpicked lines from a bronze age text.
