Gov. Rick Perry spoke at two private events this week where a Texas minister wondered if God sent Hurricane Katrina to purify the nation of sins, including homosexuality.He went to TWO events where this happened. In other words, after the first time this bigot made these comments, the governor could have, should have, told his staff he wasn't going to appear with that guy. But he didn't. Then there's his spokesman suggesting that perhaps God did try to kill the homos, who knows?
The GOP leader didn't object at the gatherings in San Antonio and Houston on Thursday.
Gubernatorial spokesman Robert Black, contacted Friday, said: "The governor does not agree with that. But far be it for the governor to try to divine the will of the Almighty.
I think what we're seeing here is not a purge of homosexuality in New Orleans, but a purge of homosexual rumors that have been swirling about Texas Governor Perry for years. Perry figures if he lets his preachers and his spokesman bash the fags, maybe people will assume he isn't gay.
