Perry made the comparison on Wednesday night during an appearance before the Commonwealth Club of California after being asked whether he believes homosexuality was a disorder, according to local media reports.

"I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that," Perry said in remarks broadcast on the local CBS affiliate. "And I look at the homosexual issue in the same way."

A few people in the audience gasped in response, according to the CBS report.

This past weekend, the Texas Republican Party (“Fight to Keep Texas Red”) adopted a party platform for 2014 that includes support of so-called “reparative therapy,” a psychological approach that claims to be able to change the sexual orientation of adults, from gay to straight. Reparative therapy is a long-held cornerstone of the religious right, and the Texas GOP’s inclusion of the therapy in its platform could be an indication of the Tea Party and religious right’s pull in the Lone Star State.

“Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle, in public policy, nor should family be redefined to include homosexual couples. We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin.”

“We recognize the legitimacy and value of counseling which offers reparative therapy and treatment to patients who are seeking escape from the homosexual lifestyle. No laws or executive orders shall be imposed to limit or restrict access to this type of therapy.”

There have been old rumors down here in Texas for a long time about Governor Goodhair being gay. I'm sure some of the rumors are available on the internet.

Because anti-gay views are usually not nearly as deeply held as love for a family member is.

Texas repubs should ditch the conservative social issues and focus more on fiscal conservatism. Ostracizing moderates in a state shifting towards blue is not a good strategy in my opinion. Phone Post 3.0

If perry was smart, he would talk about only the states economic record which he's done a good job. We just landed Toyota from California. He is not running for church deacon but they can't help themselves Phone Post 3.0

"Because anti-gay views are usually not nearly as deeply held as love for a family member is."

Loving a relative doesnt mean mindlessly supporting their impulses or behavior.

I have relatives that have been insanely promiscuous.

That have done drugs, took a swing at cops, cheated on spouses. Etc.

Me loving them in no way motivates me to encourage and glorify empty, self-destructive lifestyle choices to kids as worthwhile, healthy ways to live.

100% of the time, those that are the most vocal against homosexuality are closet homos.
