Candidate Rick Perry released an 30-second ad today attacking what he called “Obama’s war on religion.” In the ad, he says:
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian, but you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.
As president, I’ll end Obama’s war on religion. And I’ll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.
Faith made America strong. It can make her strong again.
The Washington Post’s report on the ad carries the full text and the video of the ad. CBS News reports on criticism of the ad by the Log Cabin Republicans, a group that represents the interests of gay and lesbian Republicans. The Perry ad was also strongly criticized by the Interfaith Alliance and and the Human Rights Campaign.
