    As the Boy Scouts of America reconsiders excluding gays as Scouts or leaders, Gov. Rick Perry said Saturday that most people see no reason to change the policy.

    “And neither do I,†he said..........

    Responding to a reporter’s question about whether a change in policy could teach children about tolerance and diversity, Perry countered that Scouts already learn that every day.

    “Scouting is about teaching a substantial amount of life lessons,†he said. “Sexuality is not one of them, never has been, doesn’t need to be.â€

    Perry said it would be inappropriate for the organization to conform to popular culture and wrong to make Scouts and leaders accept a behavior that they don’t.
    :facepalm:

    The guy has really done some great things economically for Texas but he's a fucking cave man when it comes to anything else. He will try for the repub presidential nomination next time and apparently has no idea that this kind of stuff will hurt him with all liberals and many, many conservatives.

    If the republicans are to win national office, they have to skirt questions like this.

    He truly is a slimey clown. He didn't get beat up and embarrassed nearly as much as he deserved in the debates.

    His TXDot super-highway toll road scam alone should have been enough to send him under a rock for the next 30 years.

    He does have nice hair though.

    He's also a good shot. Nobody's gonna break into the governor's mansion when he's home.

    And pretty much admits it. He doesn't want the Boy Scouts to conform to popular culture.

    Right... the governors mansion he didn't live in for five years while they restored it after that arson attempt. He preferred the views of Lake Travis to the tune of $10,000 a month in taxpayer money.

    He's a fucking asshole.

    I'm the first to admit that I'm politically ignorant. Texas has weathered the economic storm pretty well under Perry. It may just be because it's Texas and we already had the infrastructure in place but I reluctantly give him a small amount of credit. But I also voted for Kinky Friedman.

    Honestly, I keep myself pretty ignorant these days, because the state and federal governments make me physically ill. My belief is that Texas has for many years been the heart of America's Oil and Defense industries, and there is a SHITLOAD of money, some of it very old money, and that money and those industries wield a megaton of power and influence, nationally and globally. And FWIW, I know it's crazy talk, but I think that was kinda spelled out and emphasized one nice day in November 'bout fiddy years ago...:crazy2:

    The Boy Scouts are a private organization and can include or exclude who they want, correct?

    Not without a bunch of dykes holding up signs and screaming about wanting to join it.
