    Has anyone else seen Perry's latest ad? It seems that he thinks that there is a war against Christians because we can have gays in the military?

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V78ReJbjdxo]Rick Perry Anti-Gay Ad - "Strong" - COMMENTS ALLOWED, PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS - YouTube[/ame]

    Sounds like a last gasp for Perry's campaign.

    Ricky is pulling out the old, tired play book of days gone by. When the chips are down, its back to the three "Gs"...god, guns and the gheys.

    Just makes him look really desperate.

    Anyone think Perry has any more relevance, or is this ad his last gasp?

    I also wonder if Perry realizes the massive headache it's going to cause if he gets into office and reinstates DADT, because gays are allowed to serve NOW, and if he reinstated it, it would have an impact on the readiness of the military because of all the discharges.

    The list of what Perry doesn’t realize is limitless. Among that list is the fact two Federal judges ruled DADT un-Constitutional in 2010. Any effort to reinstate would be enjoined and review by the Court would be unlikely, allowing the lower courts’ rulings to stand.

    Perry’s clearly an idiot, in addition to being now irrelevant.

    Gays should not be allowed to serve in the military unless they are Christian gays.

    There is a war against Christmas and the hypocrisy is stunning. We have a national Christmas tree erected on public property but a town can't erect a Christmas tree in the village square without written permission from the state court of appeals. Congress has a Chaplain who says a prayer but a kid can get kicked out of school for wearing a Crucifix. The president attends the National Cathedral which has a big big cross on top but the district court orders a 60 year old Korean War monument destroyed because it has a 40 ft Cross that some idiot found offensive.
