Log Cabin Republicans Remind Governor Perry He Is Running To Be Commander-In-Chief Not Theocrat-In-Chief

Log Cabin Republicans Remind Governor Perry He Is Running To Be Commander-In-Chief Not Theocrat-In-Chief

(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans strongly object to the advertisement put out by Governor Rick Perry’s campaign about ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ and ‘traditional American values.’

“Governor Perry is running to be Commander-in-Chief, not Theocrat-in-Chief,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “Our nation was built upon individual liberty and individual responsibility, and open service by gay and lesbian servicemembers is directly in line with the vision of our Founding Fathers. It is wrong for Governor Perry to assume being a person of faith does not afford one to support equality. America is at a crossroads and our next President must be someone who is battle-focused on turning around the economy and enabling all Americans the freedom to succeed.”
