Perry Says Homosexuality Is Like Alcoholism

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) compared homosexuality to alcoholism during a visit to California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Said Perry: "Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way."

"The Texas Republican Party this month adopted a platform supporting access to 'reparative therapy' for gays and lesbians, a widely discredited process intended to change sexual orientation."
