How do you reconcile his actual endorsement of special “hate crimes” status for certain groups, including homosexuals, with his stated opposition for their agenda?

Perry is a live and let live Conservative, he is tolerant of homosexuals but does not want to normalize their lifestyle into society. He opposes gay marriage and wants a constitutional amendment against it. Apparently he buys into the concept of a hate crime, which includes homosexuals as protected in addition to minorities, and I would assume whites and heteros too. I don’t know anything about the bill he signed but I doubt if it specifically excludes hetero whites. Yes, we all know that in practice it does.

I don’t agree with Perry on this issue, however, I believe the bill was proposed in the aftermath of the Byrd dragging slaying and all the emotion that surrounded it, it would have been real difficult to not sign it. I can’t imagine any of the candidates running now, in the same situation, not signing it either under those conditions.
