Texas Governor Rick Perry, seen as a potential Republican presidential candidate in the 2016 election, compared homosexuality to alcoholism in remarks in San Francisco. Perry said in remarks broadcast on the local CBS affiliate, “I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that.” The already conservative Texas Republican Party in the past week adopted a hardline position on gay rights, adopting a policy at its convention that endorses “reparative therapy” for gays who seek to change sexual orientation through counseling.
