there are three things that are alike, alcoholism, homosexuality, and … oops!

“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”

(Rick Perry, Governor of Texas)

So, if I understand Perry’s point, he may have a genetic inclination to be gay but he forces himself “not to do that”?

  1. I don’t think this post is as self-evident as you think. Can you elaborate on your response to this? A man who feels inclined to have sexual/romantic relationships with other men may choose not to, because he believes they are bad. In the same way, a man with an inclination toward alcoholism may choose not to abuse alcohol, because he believes it is bad.
