Perry's comments anger gay rights activists nationwide PERRY, continued from Page 1 prohibit gay marriage and civil unions. At the same time. Perry also signed a measure that would restrict abortion by requiring girls under 18 to get parental consent before they can have an abortion. The choice of Calvary Christian Academy for signing the measures echoes Perry's campaign plan to celebrate with "Christian friends." Gay activists describe Perry's signing of the proposed constitutional amendment on same-sex marriage as grandstanding, since the measure required no signature from the governor before being placed on the November ballot. "Once again, Texas leads the way in denying civil rights by being so backward," said Randall Ellis, executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas (LGRL). About 100 protesters lined up outside the school during the event, according to published reports. While LGRL objected to Perry's choice of a venue for the signing ceremony, Ellis said it was what the governor said in a press conference following the event that concerns him the most. Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy reported on June 7,2005 that when Perry was asked what he would say to gay war veterans who come home from Iraq to learn they've lost all hope of being able to get married, the governor was quoted as saying, "Texans made a decision about marriage and if there's a state that has more lenient views than Texas, then maybe that's a better place for them to live." Ellis called Perry's comments "shameful," and added, "Rick Perry should apologize to all veterans for suggesting that Texas does not honor their service. When injured soldiers are coming home everyday from Iraq, we should honor everyone's service to our state and country, not judge them and tell them to get out" Beyond the reach of activist judges' O MORE INFO Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas www.lgrl.org As Perry signed the marriage bill, he noted that because Defense of Marriage acts have come under legal attack in recent years, the proposed constitutional amendment places the issue, "beyond the reach of activist judges." Perry added, "History tells us, and most Texans believe, that marriage exists for more than the convenience of consenting adults, but also for the eternal benefit of our children." Ellis said he wonders how much Perry's upcoming re-election fight played into his choice of a Christian school as a venue for the bill signing. It is anticipated that Perry will face U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison in his bid for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in 2006. Perry's spokesperson, Kathy Walt, had this to say about protestors outside the school who carried signs about the separation of church and state, "The critics are generally those who object to people of faith participating in government or the electoral process. There are a number of critics who would object to this bill signing if it were in a public school, a library a Wal-Mart parking lot or any other venue because they oppose pro-life, pro-family issues." Those who voiced opposition to the bill signing were not all from Texas. Gay rights activists from around the country commented regarding not only the choice of a venue but also Perry's comments. "No family should have to leave their home to be protected under the law." said Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign. "Almost 43.000same-sex couples live in Texas, and Gov. Perry should be treating those families wilh the same amount of respect and dignity that he gives other constituents."
