Cool Perry Seeking Ahmadinejad's Endorsement

The Obama administration will weigh how countries treat gays and lesbians in making decisions about foreign aid, according to a presidential memorandum released by the White House.


The memorandum said the U.S. aims to improve refugee and asylum protections for gay, bisexual and transgender people. It also calls for strengthening U.S. efforts to oppose foreign governments criminalizing homosexuality, bisexuality or transgender behavior.

Sounds like an initiative no one with more than one brain cell would oppose. Unfortunately, there just happens to be one such person in the presidential race:

Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry called the new policy "wrong," "silly" and "out of touch" with American values.

"Promoting special rights for gays in foreign countries is not in America's interests and not worth a dime of taxpayers' money," the Texas governor said in a statement.

Obama's administration is "at war with people of faith in this country," Perry said. "Investing tax dollars promoting a lifestyle many Americas of faith find so deeply objectionable is wrong."


Yes, not wanting gay people to be jailed is special rights and waging war on people of faith. Perry believes that evolution is a myth. And frankly, he's so persuasive that I believe him. Was it before he was before the Darwinists, before, from the standpoint of Hillary?

On the other hand, it might just be that Perry is seeking the endorsement of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Now, to be fair, that endorsement would be a big deal in the Republican primary - no one has been more pro-life, pro-family, pro-faith and pro-creation than the esteemed president of Iran. Evangelicals in Iowa would flock to his endorsee. So maybe Perry is playing it smart.
