Original title: Rick Perry accused of hypocrisy as he comes under fire for investment in America's largest pornography distributor

Leading Republican contender and prominent Christian candidate Rick Perry has been accused of hypocrisy after it was revealed that he invested thousands of dollars in the country's largest pornography distributor.

Just a week after he launched his presidential campaign, the Texas governor has come under fire for his investment in Movie Gallery, a company that rented pornographic movies.

In 1995, while serving as Texas' agriculture commissioner, financial disclosures reveal that Mr Perry bought between $5,000 and $10,000 worth of the company's stock.

The revelation is particularly embarrassing for the Republican candidate as the company was boycotted by the American Family Association, which hosted Mr Perry's high-profile prayer rally in Houston a week before he kicked off his campaign.

In potentially even more damaging allegations, Mr Perry is accused of signing into law bills that could have benefitted the pornography distributor.

Depends on the definition of pornography. Some people think that kissing in public is porn.

All I can say is that the fact her husband was part of the mob with a lock on New York City area pornography brokerage and sales didn’t hurt Geraldine Ferraro a bit.

So did he make money?

Is there no END of this man's business sense?

He is truly sent to us for such times as these.

Our Rick!

The Leftwingtards think that the charge of "HYPOCRISY" is the one that hurts Christians.

Actually it isn't. In fact, that's the one that motivates Leftwingtards because, as it turns out, they love it.

Moslems obey a directive from Mohammad in the Koran to "kill the hypocrites" ~ and that causes them all sorts of problems since there's just so much hypocrisy to be seen in others by anyone at any time in any country.

Isn’t Romney on the board of Marriots which has xxx porn in their hotels? Think there will be an issue with that.
There has been so much about Perry the last few days one just has to wonder if any of is it close.

We had a Movie Gallery... hardly a porn distributed. They had a little age restricted porn room in the back. It was just like Blockbuster with a porn section. Was Obama still snorting coke in 1995?

You resort to posting ultra Liberal trash and rhetoric/lies and post them on a Conservative site. sadly your guild will take this as “gospel” and run with it.

It is getting very sickening and is driving people away from this once great forum.

Perry really has the left running scared..they had to go back to 1995 to dig up this non issue. Rush was right...Liberals will always let you know who they fear the most. He's not my choice for the nominee, but the fact that he's getting under the left’s skin is quite enjoyable.

That's correct, the Left AND the Palinistas are running scared of Perry. The sad thing is, Palin has no intention of running, yet they trash anyone who they see as a threat to her non candidacy.

I do.

They’re wierd.

I briefly courted one of the daughters. Her father asked me why I had a picture of her on my desk at work where everyone could see it.

She later married somebody he liked better. Last I heard she isn’t happy.

:(

It seems most people who support rick perry haven’t really reviewed at his views.

Odd to support somebody you really know nothing about.

Perry authored a bill giving in-state tuition to illegal immigrants and even said he would never take action against the children of illegal immigrants because he was too compassionate.

I left a comment on that site - what a stretch LARGEST Porn distributor? It was a chain just like Blockbuster - some with back rooms.

The American Family Association also boycotted: 7-Eleven, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Airlines, American Girl, Blockbuster Video, Burger King, Calvin Klein, Carl’s Jr., Clorox, Comcast, Crest, Ford, Hallmark Cards, Kmart, Kraft Foods, S. C. Johnson & Son, Movie Gallery, Microsoft, MTV, Mary Kay, NutriSystem, Old Navy, IKEA, Sears, Pampers, Procter & Gamble, Target, Tide, Walt Disney Company, and PepsiCo.

If you own stock in any of these companies - beware, if you call yourself a Christian you are a hypocrite.....

Such a stretch. I am not a Perry fan - still holding out for Sarah but Perry would still be better than O.

Movie Gallery? It is a general movie distributor like Blockbuster or Hastings?

What’s next, he invests in Amazon and they write an article on how Amazon.com sells Playboy therefore Perry is a pornographer.

Good point. I doubt he is sitting on his eTrade account every day looking up who sells the dirtiest movies so he can invest money in them. Like most rich folks, I’m sure he has a broker he hires who uses a black-box program to automatically buy simply based on moves such as going above or below a 30 day SMA.

Yeah I've seen the circular firing squad threads. My choice is Cain, followed by Palin(though I doubt she's running), but if Perry gets the nod, he'll get my vote.

The brass ring is getting rid of emperor 0; so I'm not going to tear down anyone who is running to do that.

If this is the same “Movie Gallery” I know of, it is just a movie rental chain like Blockbuster and Hollywood. I use to see them primarily in smaller towns here in TX that didn’t have one of the bigger chains in town and they rented all the same stuff as everyone else.

Lo, it appears they are experiencing the same fate as the big guys in the rental biz. Last time I was back home the local Movie Gallery had shut down......
