Did you know it's a crime to be gay in places other than Rick Santorum's house and dog house? It's true. (Look, I'm only suggesting Rick Santorum probably wouldn't like it if his dog were gay, and he would likely come up with a way to criminalize it.)
Anyway, it turns out President Obama plans to use foreign aid as an incentive to keep other countries from flogging and killing homosexuals for having sex in a weird way. And still-presidential-candidate Rick Perry is disturbed…
Saying he had seen news reports that the Obama administration “wants to make foreign aid decisions based on gay rights,” Mr. Perry said in a statement, “This administration’s war on traditional American values must stop.”
Exactly. Instead of worrying about gays being persecuted overseas, Obama should focus on persecuting gays right here at home. Some ideas: 1) Publicly announce that it's not okay for them to get married. 2) Do nothing when gay troops are booed by your political base. 3) I dunno. Ask Rick Santorum?
