Perry Backs Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment, Questions Evolution


Just in case there were any lingering questions about Texas Governor Rick Perry’s social conservative credentials, the likely presidential candidate told the Associated Press today that he supports a constitutional amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman.

“Yes, sir, I would [support an amendment.] I am for the federal marriage amendment. And that’s about as sharp a point as I could put on it,” Perry told the news agency, just one day after he reiterated his opposition to same-sex marriage at a right wing gathering in Colorado.

Meanwhile, Perry also insisted that he thinks a creator, rather than the Big Bang, formed the universe.

There are clear indications from our people who have amazing intellectual capability that this didn’t happen by accident and a creator put this in place.

Now, what was his time frame and how did he create the earth that we know? I’m not going to tell you that I’ve got the answers to that.

I believe that we were created by this all-powerful supreme being and how we got to today versus what we look like thousands of years ago, I think there’s enough holes in the theory of evolution to, you know, say there are some holes in that theory.

Hmm, next thing you know he’ll say he believes the world is flat.
