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.

Signing it was not the problem. He championed it, from my reading of old articles. I’m not trying to change minds here, but see what rational people on both sides say. All I know is that the name I vote for in 2012 will be conservative, even if I have to write it in.
