Defense of Marriage Act "Gov. Perry believes in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, regarding it as the linchpin of the family unit and, thus, society as a whole. In 2003, as part of his ongoing effort to prevent aggressive attempts to redefine marriage, Gov. Perry signed Senate Bill 6, the Defense of Marriage Act, specifying that Texas does not legally recognize a same-sex marriage or civil union. Two years later, Gov. Perry supported strengthening the law with a constitutional amendment, the Texas Marriage Amendment, defining marriage as the “union of one man and one woman.” It was approved by Texas voters in November 2005. "..................

Aug 28, 2011:Rick Perry pledges to support traditional marriage ""Kudos to Governor Rick Perry for making it clear: he's a marriage champion," National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown said in a statement.

By signing the pledge, "Perry makes crystal clear that, contrary to the conventional wisdom, gay marriage is going to be even a bigger issue in 2012 than it was in 2008," Brown said, "because the difference between the GOP nominee and President (Barack) Obama is going to be large and clear."

The pledge also includes a vow to support the Defense of Marriage Act in court, appoint judges and an Attorney General who will respect "the original meaning of the Constitution," and appoint a presidential commission to investigate harassment of "traditional marriage" supporters."............

Whatever else one can say about Perry, you can’t say that he isn’t a staunch support of real marriage.

According to Drudge, Rasmussen will be releasing a poll showing Cain leading Obama in 15 minutes:

Yet, we are led to believe by the Fangirls that a semi-literate Texas governor who is polling behind Michele Bachmann in New Hampshire is the only Republican that can stop Romney and beat Obama. LOL!

Are there really enough homosexuals in Texas for "mass demonstrations"? I'd bet these are merely leftists posing as such.

the need for pro-family laws that will provide safety and protection for ALL Texas families

The ALL-CAPS in the word ALL means that they are including anyone who wants to get married, including bigamists, plural marriagists, people wanting to marry family members or pets. Right?

Otherwise, they want to exclude some people from "marriage", I want to exclude other people from "marriage", why are they more right than me?

Rassmussen Election 2012: Obama 49% Perry 35%

Perry should drop out and endorse Cain. He is only helping Romney otherwise. Any vote for Perry is a vote for Romney at this point.
