Rick Perry

Former Texas Governor and current Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry issued a “disappointed” statement on the Supreme Court’s decision to nullify the statute he signed into law in Texas as they ruled that marriage equality is the rule of the nation now.

“I am disappointed the Supreme Court today chose to change the centuries old definition of marriage as between one man and one woman,” Governor Perry said in a statement. “I’m a firm believer in traditional marriage, and I also believe the 10th Amendment leaves it to each state to decide this issue.”

Perry vowed that if he were president we would not have to worry about progress or equal rights, because he firmly believes in letting states discriminate against people’s rights.

“I fundamentally disagree with the court rewriting the law and assaulting the 10th Amendment.”

Perry pulled the founding fathers card for his side, “Our founding fathers did not intend for the judicial branch to legislate from the bench, and as president, I would appoint strict Constitutional conservatives who will apply the law as written.”

So now you know what kind of country we’d have under Rick Perry.

  1. Awww… are you mad because progress is making you look like a lunatic dinosaur, Rick?

    Well, too bad! You and every other rotten conservative now have no reason whatsoever to even attempt any discrimination against our gay and lesbian friends.

  2. Oh, of course he thinks they’re legislating from the bench. That’s what they all think when a decision doesn’t go their way. Well, you can’t use the 10th Amendment as a way to discriminate and the Court today made sure that stops happening.

    We are ALL equal under the law or we ALL are not. You can’t have your cake and eat it, too. You can’t hold one group above another. If you discriminate against one group, and that discrimination is allowed to stand, then you can discriminate against another group, and another, and another. Pretty soon, the only equal people will be old white guys.

    Well, that’s not how it works and while it took a while, the Court made the right decision today.

  3. Hey Dick Walker! You need not worry about making changes/decisions regarding to Gay marriage or any other issue regarding the American People! You will never be voted into the Big House so your point is irrelevant and unneeded! However what you do in your own state is own you! I believe you governed the state of Texas! Stay there COWBOY!

  4. Conservatives view laws as having TWO purposes only:
    1) protect conservatives do whatever they want to do
    2) stop others from doing whatever they want to do

  5. Hey, I thought Perry was serious about running for president. He bought the glasses and everything.

    Send us a postcard from jail, Gov.

  6. Ummm, you’re NO LONGER the governor of ruined Texas, and you WON’T be president so who is your USELESS rant directed to??
    You’re also under INDICTMENT and WILL be at Federal Correctional Institution, Bastrop.
    You’re NOT longer relivant, BYE, BYE.

  7. Ohhhh dear poor deliousional rick perry, the only problem is perry is that it was the people that voted for equal rights and the president that was 75% of the united states of American people, and that they also voted for equal rights for same sex marriages, just the supreme courts of law were the final one with the say in overal of the votes of the people to allow same sex marriages.. And that they decreed the law for same sex marriages in the votes of the people, And that also no president has ever had say over the superem courts of law, that they are the law of the land and all matters once passed through them are final, there is no fighting it. So looks like Perry won’t be president 2016, nor no zelot biggot for that matter, America does not need people like him or haters. America has enough hate outside let alone inside. a shame really, thoe it is a time to rejoice and marry for same sex couples, I wish them all a happy life together

  8. Perry just admitted when he and his fellow conservatives swear on the Bible to uphold the Constitution, they’re lying.

    I’m no biblical scholar, so correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t lying one of the ten things God said was a big no-no?

  9. GO AHEAD and see what else you can get yourself indited for,,, you cant change much from a prison cell…..

  10. The irony here- that Governor Good-Hair will be just as effective vacationing at Club Fed as he would from the Oval Office; and as he has done as Governor.

  11. Mr. Perry

    Religious freedom means you have the right to practice your religion. You do not have right to make me practice your religion. You do not have the right to tell others they cannot marry because of your religion. You do not have the right to create religious laws allowing your beliefs to discriminate against others.

    Keep your religion off of my constitution!

  12. Yeah, we sane Texans are glad he is gone-nothing but a dip shit ultra conservative a hole. Go apply at Wally World as a greeter, because you sure aren’t going to get the presidency. However, thanks for running so you can dilute the vote of other dip shit conservatives.

  13. Perry’s expecting and admitting to further criminal activity, through intentional discrimination. I wonder how that will play out in court? Conservatives have no valid platform to even run on any more. They exist to oppress others, through power and intimidation. The NRA wouldn’t hesitate selling guns to the LGBT community. Wake up and smell the democracy at work!

  14. Rick Perry no doubt will be Bubba s B…h in prison wonders if his views of gay marriage will Change lol Mr an Mrs Bubba

  15. Anyone who believes in gay marriage is going to have to answer to god, bible says marriage is only valid between a man and a woman. Every time I see gays or lesbians kissing in public I want to barf. Next time I see that I will barf all over them.

  16. You bear false witness.

    The Bible DOES NOT state that marriage is between one man and one woman, alone.

    Polygamy- is Biblical.

  17. Ummmm, no. I am from Texas and we don’t want him back. He’s nothing but a hateful pick and he can burn in hell for his hatred. His idea of marriage is horseshit and he needs to go somewhere that people will agree with his hatred. Like the moon without a spacesuit or a ship. He is an asshole who thinks that discrimination is the way of the world. He could die right now and no one would miss him

  18. Hey Moon, I haven’t been able to find any news about the preacher who said he would set himself on fire if marriage equality was made law.

    Did he do it yet? I wanna watch!

  19. I don’t hate many things, but I literally hate FOX with a passion. Even so, I just had to tune in yesterday to watch the bellicose, cray-cray reaction to the Marriage Equality ruling.

    I lost count of the times I heard the words “judicial activism.” Do these morons not realize that they ONLY use those words when a decision doesn’t go their way? I sure as hell didn’t hear “judicial activism” after the Citizens United or Hobby Lobby rulings!

  20. No, that was another preacher who did that a year or two ago, in response to quite a different crisis. Posters on Facebook erroneously reported him to be the same man.

  21. …Dickhead Perry proves yet again…
    …1} He can still sling it for the Teatards…
    …2} He has absolutely NO idea WTH he’s talkin’ about…
    …3} He cares not at all about We the People…
    …he’s such a tightass they will love him in prison…

  22. That’s God, with a capital G to you bub, and He would disapprove of your blatant bigotry, due to the New Testament phrase; “And the second is this. Love thy neighbor as thyself. There are no commandments greater than these.” (The other commandments are the 10 given to the Jews during Exodus.)
